Good news!

Stress is much less! Here's why:
  • finally got my period! 8 weeks late, but at least I know for sure that I'm not pregnant. I'm going to the ob-gyn as soon as we get a little more money.
  • Ben's parents 'hired' him to do some yard work in exchange for money that we desperately needed. So wonderful, especially since I hate borrowing, this was a much better solution. I went with him to help but got distracted talking to Rebecca for hours. oops. ;-)
  • Ben went to the bank on his lunch and talked them into reversing the fee!!!! YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!! That's really wonderful 'cause it means that my jewelry-making work isn't wasted.
  • reapplied at Wal-Mart, I have an 'interview' on Tuesday, and will likely start working in about a week. Which means more money which means being able to save and have a little bit of cushion from pennilessness. As well as being able to go to the ob-gyn and the dentist and the optometrist.
  • I'm actually ready to go back to work now. Before, it would have brought my healing to a standstill, because my 'responsible self' is the self that keeps me from feeling or opening old wounds, and she was too strong. If I had to bring her out to go to work, she would have taken over me altogether. But now my other parts are strong enough to stand up to her and keep me slowly stumbling towards healing.
I KNOW that it was all the prayers / kind thoughts / positive energy that you have been so kindly giving for me. I do believe that prayer is the strongest, but I don't discount the others, I believe they have effect. And regardless of the power in them, it's the gift of them that makes me love you all.

feelings: relieved
sounds: Obka: "Rush"

Oh, and since you got yours BACK, can you help me get rid of MINE? Two weeks straight is not cool.
belenen ══╣upset╠══
oh damn! That's every bit as bad (I was going to say it was worse, but the fear of your life changing forever in a way you aren't ready for is definitely as bad as bleeding for two weeks).

has it gone away yet?

Have you applied at any hotels? Working the front desk is easy enough and you get paid a decent wage.
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
I haven't, but I think that would be too slow a pace for my taste... of course, I don't really know what the pace is.

Good to know that things have worked out for you. 8 weeks is a bit of time, so a visit to the ob-gyn is probably necessary, but I'm sure everything will be fine. Stress, worry, and aggravation can affect us in many different ways.

I'm glad the money situation is improving also. I think banks just throw fees at us sometimes and hope we'll pay them instead of actually question them. Sometimes plainly refusing to accept their crap actually works. Revolution!

Hopefully work will work out for you as well. I know, I know, bad pun. Sometimes stepping out of ourselves can be helpful in a healing process (when used in moderation). Healing is an iterative process. How rapidly those iterations come depends on how brave we are to accept the change that will occur.

Do let us know how things turn out for you.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news
Getting your period might not mean you aren't pregnant. Probably but not neccessarily.
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
Re: Sorry to be the bearer of bad news
