Thing haven't been going too well lately for me or my family. Work has been very stressful, my wife was in the hospital for 6 days when she went in for some outpatient tests, our health insurance isn't paying the bills, I'm not taking care of things on the homefront (bills, taxes, etc.), I'm feeling overwhelmed. My pancreas finally died and I'm on insulin all the time now. I don't really give a damn about anything right now. It takes everything I've got to get up and go to work everyday. My insurance isn't paying for my therapist (he's no longer on the plan) and I have to get a new one. I have to change insurance carriers, get a new primary Dr. and go through all that mess all over again.

I'm just bitching and moaning, venting about things that seem to be coming down around my ears.

Hi Steve,

I'm sorry to hear that things aren't working out for you right now. Sometimes life just isn't fair. I will say a prayer for you and your family. Keep fighting - don't let that "little scout" down!

God Bless,

Brian

Thank you John, Chad and you too Brian!

I'm taking better care of myself and things are looking up a bit.

I'll post more when I get some more time.

Take good care of yourselves,

Steve

It's me again, just giving a bit of an update. There was a big RIF here today at work. We lost about 30% of the people that worked here. I survived. I'll have a new job, working for a new manager, in a new department with new responsibilities and of course a short time table to produce some results. To tell the truth, all the feelings going through my mind right now are almost overwhelming. I'm upset for all the good friends that are no longer here. I'm angry that some idiots are still here. I'm grateful that I'm still here. I'm anxious about the future. If I can make it through this without doing something stupid, I'll have accomplished something.

I'm really aware that at times like this I'm tempted to spiral down into a depression and just make matters worse than they already are. I'm trying to look at the positive aspects. I called my therapist and talked to him for a bit. He reminded me of the old story about the optimistic child who, when confronted with a large pile of horse manure, excitedly said "There must be a pony in there somewhere!" So I guess I just need to find that darn pony!

Take good care of yourselves, I promise to take good care of me too. Thanks for all the support and just being there to read my random rantings.

Steve
