Turn Energy Drainers into Energy Gainers!

Sorry for the self-help title. It just made me laugh.

Okay, so I haven’t been blogging (or responding to comments - so sorry!) so much because (a) work is crazy and (2) I’m having health issues which are draining my energy. (Doctor’s appointment* this Thursday, don’t worry.)

So, the work thing. I just wrote a really long explanation of what’s been happening here, but after re-reading it, decided to delete it. The summary is that I’ve been working on a project which culminated in a meeting with a donor Friday, which went really well. Someone else in my department (who out-ranks me, but who is not my supervisor) summarized the meeting points in a group e-mail, and in essence, made it appear that s/he had arranged the whole thing. My boss was livid. But as I pointed out to her, everyone on the distribution list knows this was my project and that this other person is trying to take credit. It’s almost laughable. I’m going to respond graciously by thanking this person for summarizing the meeting in my absence (I was out sick yesterday due to issues mentioned above) and adding some details that were left out.

Damn, I just want to do my job. Why are people so messed up?


* Did I tell you about my last appointment? After waiting three weeks for an appointment, I left work, drove across town to see another doctor in my favorite ob-gyn’s practice, waited for 45 minutes and then was told she’d been called away on an emergency C-section and they’d have to bump me to the next day!? And did I tell you that another woman in the waiting room told me this was the third time she’d been bumped? I think my head exploded that day, so maybe I didn’t write about it. It goes without saying that I'm seeing a new doctor this week.

Sorry work is so stressful and that you have to deal with health stuff. I know you'll let us know how it goes. I'll have a good thought for you.

I now carry Rescue Remedy in my purse to help with the work stress. It says to use two sprays each time, which I take to mean 8 sprays per hour. Anyway, seems like it helps.

It sounds like Rescue Remedy has the prescription for the daily blues. Maybe I'll try it.

By the by, I can't comment on your blog while I'm at work. I can't even view comments. It's vexing, and I doubt there's much you can do about it, but there it is.

I'e been spritzing the Rescue Rememdy and it really does seem to do something right.

BTW, I know the love is there with or without comments!

Lemme know what the doc says. [insert Rescue Remedy spritzes here
