Again...thank you for your inspiration! So proud of you! Keep up the good work....
AWESOME....Thank you! I just finished reading your post and it was so absolutely encouraging and powerful! Thank you, Sparkly Jules, for your honesty and wonderfully uplifting words, not only of truthfulness and painful memories, but for the awesome words of wisdom, happiness, and enlightenment you offer to your readers! I have been in the same place as you for awhile now, and need to find the courage to get to the 'feel good place' I have been to a couple different times in my life...and know I can get to again with just a little hope and a huge dose of willpower! ;)

I am so irritated right now. So tired of sending text messages to, or trying to call people and they simply NEVER respond. It is so aggravating. It makes me want to go 'on strike' from using my phone at all.... Continue reading

Very pretty....we don't have ours yet, but hoping to do that this coming weekend! Merry Christmas!
I love this; "So folks, I'm going to tell you a secret about call centers: While you're screaming at us, we've got your address. Probably your phone number, too. Don't push too far, you might reach someone really crazy some day. They're out there. Not me, but they're there." I work at a Computer Tech Support Help Desk (basically the same as a Call Center), and deal with the same type of bull**it also, and your statement 'hits it just right'!! So true! Thank you for making me smile :)
I'm so sorry things are so rough for you. As I have told you in comments before, I certainly understand all you are going through. Especially all of the crap with your current employer, and the feelings of being totally over it all...and wanting something different that at least makes you feel important and fulfilled. I like the words you wrote; "And ya know what? I'm just...over it. I'll keep showing up, I'll keep trying, keep getting paid, and after the holidays....date to be determined....I'm done. I don't want to be fired, even if that means I may *possibly* get unemployment. The job is miserable, I'm miserable, I come home miserable, I bitch to everyone I know about how miserable I am, blah blah blah....I'm just done. It's not worth it. Life is too damn short." This is all so true for me too, unfortunately, I have 3 boys still at home with me to consider when taking into account my feelings of anger, upset, disappointment in my life and the things I could possibly do to make things better and different for all of us! I get so tired of being angry and disappointed in myself, I just know there has to be something better than this! Somewhere, somehow! Thank you for writing so those of us that can identify don't have to feel like we are alone..... Deb
Yay! Congratulations....You did it! :)
I am definitely looking forward to the very long weekend. It's not only Thanksgiving, but also my birthday on Saturday and I'm taking the following Monday off as my 1/2 day birthday benefit gift from my company (one of the few nice things about working here)! So I actually get 5 days off!!! YeeHaw, can't wait....
If I didn't know that you and I are not related....I would think we were twins! I so enjoy reading your blogs because you say all I am feeling inside. You make me smile but you also help me to realize I am not alone on this big round globe! And, I do empathize with you and all you are going through. Everyone tells me to hang in there, but it's very hard when you are so miserable... I also wanted to mention something in regard to the liver phosphates you referred to. I had some blood work done earlier this year and was told my 'liver enzymes' were really elevated and they were concerned about the pain meds I take and thought maybe that was what was causing the elevation...come to find out it was my Gall Bladder, and when I was passing a gall stone it would cause the elevations. I'm not trying to scare you or anything, just wanted to help out. I'm not even sure you take pain meds but wanted to pass the information along to you. Hope you have a very nice weekend, and a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING.....
I am definitely 'THE GOOGLE' in my house. Sometimes I wonder what everyone else would do if I DIDN'T KNOW where everything is most of the time! And, on those rare occasions when I really don't know and had absolutely nothing to do with where it is or where it disappeared to....my response is always, SERIOUSLY....why would I know where THAT is??????
I am so sorry for all you are going through. I can soooo empathize with everything you are saying, and it hurts me that you are so miserable. I don't even know you but I feel like I do by reading your writings..... I have very similar crap going on at my job, and it is all so ridiculous! Please hang in there and I really do hope you had a nice BIRTHDAY, regardless of all the losers you work around forgetting to even acknowledge it!
Oh, I so hear you both on this one (including comment by HD Silversmith)....and totally agree and empathize! While I was reading the article, I almost felt like I was reading notes I had written on my own life. Thank you for always delighting me and helping me to not feel sooooo alone in this unfair world we live in!
I definitely understand the part about being watched like a hawk at work. I feel for you and hope things smooth out for ya' soon! :)
I'm happy for you, deciding to do what means something to you. I believe that everything happens for a reason, whether it be good or bad...and I believe you will succeed at this!
