I understand your frustration Trish. It looks like my new job will only be 8 hours a week (6 this week because a kid cancelled Wednesday). I have to drive 19 miles each way to get there and back. It wouldn't be worth it except, I enjoy doing it, and it could help to have it as a reference later. I hope you find something with more hours soon. I know what you mean about the ego and rejections! I'm right there with you on that. I hate being interviewed. I seem to forget how to speak English during them and end up speaking some form of almost English-sounding gibberish.

I'm so sorry to hear this, Babe. I can't even imagine having to take a shot 4 times a day. I think you are justified in feeling sorry for yourself - after reading this I'm never feeling sorry for myself again. I do hope the new med helps you.

Sorry to hear that Babe. I take Metformin but am fortunate not to need insulin. And it's okay to feel a little sorry for yourself now and then!

I know how you feel. I take Humulog before each meal and Lantus before bed as well. I hate poking myself with those needles each day, plus the 'pen' to get blood for the meter.

A don't you hate that when you are on time for a Dr.'s appointment they are always running late with no apology? But if you are running late they act like you just stopped the world while they all waited on you, then they still make you wait to get in because they weren't ready for you yet anyway!!

To PDSWife, Barbarba L and Babetoo - I am sorry to hear of all of your situations. Let's hope things get better for you Barbara L and they give you more hours, that you get another job very quickly PDSWife, and that your BSL's settle down very quickly Babetoo.

I Hate PBS Beg Week

It's going on week 2 in my neck of the woods now, and pre-empting my fave afternoon show. I am heartily sick of having to listen to some earnest type trying to figure how out many different ways they can say "Send more money."

And I DON'T need another stupid tote bag or coffee cup.

here's an example that will make the blood of Boomers boil. They had some special on last week about music from the 60s, and who performed?

One-hit wonders - Jackie DeShannon and the guy from "My Green Tambourine."

Yeah, I know Janis and Jimi are gone, but come on - they're not all dead yet!!!!!
