I am so exhausted, I could not sleep last night becasue of Alexia being in the hospital and I had my daughter thing today. I had cooked all afternoon yesterday so I didn't have that much to do but warm up the food. I feel so bad becasue my neices told my sister that I was a mean person.

Which I can be when I have something going on like this, I did apoligied and told them I do appreciate everything they do to help. I didn't think I was that bad today, but everyone said they have noticed a change in me that im mean and rude.

I think something is going on with me after all, I was drenched all day I am wearing a tank top and I was sopping wet all after noon, I had finally got to sit down and I'm relaxing.

Well I have my family here so I am getting off of here. We are having a bomb fire tonight. Well take care, Sam

Hi Sam, I hope you are given a chance for some rest. I went through a stage similar to yours. I didn't like myself. I was having some kind of nervous anger. I would be short with my husband or mother for no perticular reason. Once I realized I was acting out but couldn't control it at the moment I would stop and say to myself. This isn't important. I need to take care of me. I want everyone to still love me. I can't keep pushing people to understand my situation. Once that was settled in my head I was ok again. When you are under pressure anything out of the ordinary can cause a bit of a blood pressure rise. You just have to stand back and take a deep breath and continue on if you can. If you can't you let someone else handle it instead of loosing a bit of your control. I hope this is just a short phase for you as it was for me. I didn't like me not liking myself. I am my best friend. If I can't like me why should I expect someone else to. I hope all went well for you today other than your nieces complaints. They should have helped if they thought there was a problem. Hey! How is your grand daughter? I hope all is well. Sheryl
Strength and Warmth,
Sheryl

Hey Sam, how am I going to know you if we meet up in Adrain in a few weeks? You will be looking for me and I need to change my picture also. I have aged tremendously over the last 3 years. I don't look at all the same. I wouln't even let people take pictures of me. I thought I could loose the weight and somehow get my looks back. FAT chance. It isn't happening. I will post the real me if you post the real you. Then we will know who to look for. You go girl. You first. Ha! Sheryl

Sam:

What does that mean? Are you okay?

I just learned today that I have to have half my toe amputated on the 28th.

Don't be down, just get past present issues and on to another day. Is your grand daughter okay? Is she out of the hospital?

Your last post gave me the impression you're depressed. Please don't be, you have friends here.
Tru

It is what it is...........

Hi Sam,

Wow, you made it through it and survived. NOW REST. Mean can be so misconstrued (not sure on spelling of that one). I know when I am sooo tired and sooo not feel good and am struggling too much, it comes across as rude or indifferent but in acutallity( not sure on spelling of that one either) it just means I am struggling so hard, I just can't seem my pleseant ( ALWAYS<JUST KIDDING) self.
I hope it was enjoyable when the reception was going for you and your daughter. I can't believe you did the cooking.
As for the pictures, mine would be unbelievable in three years of lines, tired , and aging. So don't feel bad.
Tru, sorry about your toe. That is way too rough. Let us know. Susie54
