In regards to my last post..

Why is life unfair? And yeh, maybe I should suck it up because I'm not the only one who's had bad thing after bad thing happen in their life...but hey it's my life and I can feel sorry for myself, right?

Jamie lost his job, and I am on maternity leave with a 3 month old baby that cries all the time and I have to have surgery to remove my gall bladder on March 4, the day before my birthday.

Go back to work early you say? Well, I just might have to consider that 2 weeks post surgery. I can't do heavy lifting...and I work at a nursing home, so there are plenty of heavy residents. It's sad because we just finished talking about me staying home for another year. What's worse, is that Jamie made more in 2 weeks than I do in a whole bloody month.

I would go get a pail of icecream and a spoon, but icecream seems like a luxury right now. I don't have any girlfriends to talk to, yup...not one.

How sadly pathetic is my life? I think I'm entitled to feel sorry for myself.

Keep your chin up girlie. I can tell you about my life and you'll feel good about your own. I've been turned down for 19 jobs in the last year. My dh is a home builder and we haven't sold a house in 2 more than that, with the exception of one that God blessed us with to keep food on the table. All our bills are at least 2 months behind, and we owe out, well....I won't go there....lets just say it's at least in the high 6 figures!!! On top of that, since my children have all moved out, three out of four of them have caused me such worry I am tearing my hair out. I worked my arse off to lose 65 pounds which I kept off almost two years, and have recently put back on about 15 of those pounds. Why? Because I've been feeling sorry for me. Which is why I say keep your chin up!! What works for me is my faith! I know God has a plan for me, as well as my children, and He won't let me down as long as I keep up the faith. If you ever want to talk, you can pm me and I'll send you my email addy.


ps...good luck with the surgery...I'll keep you in my prayers.

Awww, thank you so much, it really means a lot to me that you posted all this. I don't really share my blog with others...yet.. so it's really nice to see this here.

I will keep you in my thoughts as well, you are going through so much, it almost seems like my problems really aren't the end of the world... I guess, our own problems always seem bigger to us than they may to other people, especially when they are dealing with so much more.

I felt sorry for myself for a couple days, and now we're just doing what we have to do, our bills are alright for the next month, we have food, and it's tax season and there's a small refund. So, I have tried to look for all the positives amidst the negative.

Thank you so much, I am so glad to have "met" you!
