When your circadian rhythm is wrekt over a PTSD episode and your next therapy appointment is at the end of the next month.

At least the outreach network caught me at dinner time to talk during the twice a week talks.

Tried to talk to my boss all day because according to my midwife I should be on medical suspension. It took all day to get hold of her, finally did after the shift (I wasn't suppose to be there for) ended. She didn't have any answers. She didn't look through the guidelines I printed out from the Gov website and Maternity Action website. She wants me to come in on Thursday to talk. I feel like she's going to try to convince me my midwife is wrong. I have such bad anxiety its so hard to talk to her, I usually just give in to try and leave ASAP, but I am literally a heavily pregnant asthmatic who isn't yet vaccinated, working in a red-zone care home during a pandemic in an area with increasing cases.

Times like this I wish my anti-anxiety were safe during pregnancy.

@Bigsimsfan12 Visit your GP and see if you can get signed off for the anxiety, and then ask your boss to sort this out over the phone with you. Protecting yourself and baby is #1 priority!

Our dinner was interrupted by the Emergency Alert System (EAS) every 3-5 minutes and my family had to stay in the basement for a few minutes when the wind picked up.

This is the remnants of Hurricane Ida.

EDIT: Internet got knocked out. Using cellular service. About 10 people died in my area due to disobedience to the instructions.

Doctors said I had something called "metabolic syndrome"

My waistline should be 35" and well...it's not. I'm wide around as I am tall (63"). I have two measuring tapes, one of which maxes out at 120".

So they took me off some pills and replaced it with a different one that should reverse the stubborn weight issue and for once, make it go down.

Spent today taking naps and crying. Had to work on technical difficulties on my computer but I failed to get the desired effect. Didn't cry over that, but it was a blow to my ego and my father's pride as tech support technician.

The pattern of bad connections concerning a new medicine. Apparently, 2 doctors I have no prior familiarity with are holding up a medicine I need to control depression and the issues with weight that goes with depression.

I am practically starved of sleep and I ran out of one of my pills.

My family's doctor, DB is working in conjunction with all my doctors. She's like gone full-on Dr. Gregory House mode. Weirdest thing she told me last time I saw her was she has 2 pet pigs. I warned her that pigs are smarter than they let on. (I neglected to mention how food-oriented they are in learning behaviors and tricks)

Edit: it's 3:15 in the morning and I am laughing at a crudely animated pigeon throw a temper tantrum, wanting to drive a transit bus while an audience of 2nd graders scream "NO" as per the directions of the bus driver.

It would be great if bank websites worked the way they're supposed to.

I've spent the past 2 weeks waiting to hear from my bank regarding opening a savings account. Long story short, I haven't heard from them because they never got a application. The reason they never got a application is because there isn't one to fill out. I fill in the basic information that I'm asked for, then there is a button that sez "Add Account".

I've tried different browsers, tried tried applying while logged in, tried applying while logged out... they all do the same thing. Meh! All of this because I want to make things a bit easier for myself rather than juggling math on paper.

I've contacted the bank a third time asking them just to send me a application. We can fill it out, then drop it off.

EDIT: Not bank related...

Company X sends a email telling me that they're sorry that they haven't been able to contact us; I check the caller ID. Yeah, sure. They haven't been able to reach us because they haven't called.

I'm not in the mood for bullshit. There is more than enough bullshit of every kind online. I don't need it in my personal space either.

Just had received a blood order to give blood for a test from my cardiologist. Just saw him. Nice guy, but he's too animated than I can tolerate and there's a reason you shouldn't feed me caffeine after a certain point in the day.

Yes. Put the heavily pregnant employee in the windowless room with no seating, air circulation, close by bathroom facilities or air conditioning (or even just a fan) for 12 hours per day. Great idea.

Stupid kids in their pre/early teens and their extremely annoying way of being. Can't even let someone sit in some quiet and peace waiting for the bus. Just have to nag and ask stupid-arse questions. When I'm tired from work, I don't have enough brainpower left over to deal with that kind of brats. If you're not waiting for the bus, please go elsewhere to look for some common decency, and leave me the %&$# alone

It has been a bit since I ordered from Amazon. I put in a order with them over the weekend for a couple budget binders and a calculator. My budgeting 'system' is a mish-mash of crap that isn't working for me. I need a simpler, cleaner way of doing things. I digress.

The order was delivered yesterday, but not to the the post office. Apparently at least one Amazon delivery person doesn't know the difference between a post office and a grocery store. Somebody from the grocery store brought part of my order to the post office at 5:30 this morning, the other part ( the calculator) is MIA.

When I called Amazon about this, I got stuck in a endless loop with their stupid automated system, so after the 4th time, I just lied about what I was calling about. It wasn't a total lie as I wanted a refund for the missing package, but had to lie to speak to a person about the problem. Supposedly my refund will show up in couple of days, we'll see.

I'm so frickin' done with this company. It has been one thing after and another and when people can't figure out the difference between a grocery store and a post office, it is time to walk away from the train wreck.

Lousy drive on the way home!

My mother almost dinged a smart car. She and I joke that there are clowns in the car and we almost sent the clowns flying. Smart car, dumb driver.

People backing out, speeding by, you name the asshole infraction, it happened, okay? Good.

Only good takeaway from the day was I picked out my birthday gift as my mom is clueless about the dolls on my dresser (I rarely let people in my room unless I am having a really awful time). It was a rare doll.

Wheeee! Are we having fun yet?

5.3% inflation on pretty much everything under the sun with no end in sight.

I just finished reading a article about heating costs for this year. People that use natural gas ( I'd be one of those) can expect to see a big bump in their bills; people that have electric heat can expect to see a even bigger bump. Considering the ridiculous electric bills we had during the summer, this doesn't surprise me.

Is this what people meant when they said that 2021 was going to be the best year ever? It isn't nice to hold grudges; I have lots of them. I guess I'll have a long winter to mull them over and decide which ones are worth holding on to and which are not.

People on YT are making noise about Christmas shopping. Not to be all grinch-like, but NOPE! Among other things, 2021 has been a year filled with shady business BS. There is all the crap with Amazon ( sending a glass dish with no packaging, so it busted into a million pieces. Sending me used product, but charging me full price for it. The packages that disappeared that I had to hunt down a refund for, ect... ) buying things from Etsy only to be sent something else entirely, the SNAFU that happened with the fence and so on. Then there was the current bout of shady business bullshit.

I bought a sprial-bound budgeting workbook from a small business. I've never purchased from this person before and figured all would be well since it wasn't Amazon or whatever. That turned out to be a pie-in-the-sky ordeal.

The workbook I ordered was a pre-order which I was good with. A couple days later, I got a email stating that my workbook was on its way. Long story short, it actually isn't on its way and won't be until the end of the week. The little shit took my money, created a shipping label knowing full well that what I bought wasn't 'leaving the building'. When I contacted the little shit about this, I was told this was explained on their website; it isn't. To make matters worse, the little shit's assistant that I was dealing with thought it would be cute to write his response in red text as if that means something. He may was well have written his response in all caps with all the exclamation points. When I asked for a refund, I was told that one wouldn't be given because a label was already created; how convenient. The workbook is coming via Priority Mail. I could be a total asshole and return it, but I won't. Instead I just won't order from them ever again or recommend them.

What does all of this have to do with Christmas shopping? Nothing really except for the fact I'm not spending money for Christmas this year, fuck'em all. I'll send the 'rents their usual gift card, The Boy is always happy with cash or a Steam card then I'm done. I've talked to Dingus about what he wants to do, he doesn't want anything and I don't want or need anything. If I feel that compelled to spend money, I'll donate it to my favorite charity. I'm making a effort to donate to them on a weekly basis and have no regrets. It is money well spent and I can write it off on my taxes next year since said charity is a legit non-profit.

I can't do anything to change the buffoonery, I can only choose not to participate in it. The buffoonery will return once the house is paid off as there are things I want to do but need cash to do it. I'm not paying for interest on a stupid credit card for the things I want done.

Amazon charges postage for each item these days, and their packaging ends up looking like it's been dropped from a plane - so I've decided to order the books I can order from someplace else instead. At least that company has free postage over a certain amount, doesn't reuse the same cardboard for the 10th time (I swear that's gotta be why Amazon's packaging is so flimsy), and the tape doesn't literally fall apart in the seams...

Nevermind they might be a bit cheaper - I want my stuff delivered safely to me this time, and not in the "just barely in one piece" way I got them the last 2-3 times.

The rest of the gifts (not much, just for close family) I can get in shops close by.

------------------

Anyway, what kind of ruined my day (and will probably be ruining several days forward) is mom's new hand soap. It smells like old lady's perfume (the kind of really heavy smell that hangs in the air for at least a couple hours after the old lady has left the room). I had to air out the bathroom for half an hour before I could go in there. Turns out when I looked at the back of the thing it has several probable allergens plus a bunch of perfume in it. No wonder that smell stays for days! Ugh! And she's even got a refill of that horrible thing
No, absolutely can't throw it away because it was a gift - I mean... I'm almost hoping someone gets a skin reaction from that concoction so we have a good reason to chuck it out Just hoping she'll rush through that awful soap and go back to the regular one she uses, because it's one I don't mind too much using.

Until then, I'll stick to my regular perfume-free soap for sensitive skin, thank you very much... It has probably less than 1/4 of the ingredients and none of the smell)

Everyone in the house is ill. We're always ill. Really we need a week or two to relax and finally kick the plague that has been attacking our house for the last month, but neither of us can afford to be off work that long. So we're both struggling along either working long shifts or looking after a sick toddler on our own while also being ill.

Called 111 last night because Ivy was screaming in pain for hours. She keeps asking for the toilet but when we take her she says "wheres the wee gone?", so probably a bladder infection, on top of the chest infection, sinus infection/flu and conjunctivitis. 111 arranged a doctors appointment at 2am. Doctor was useless, told us to give her paracetamol. We explain she spits it out. "Put it in yogurt!". We have tried. "Custard?". Still nope, we have literally mixed it into everything we can think of. "Only other thing I can suggest is suppositories". Can you prescribe some suppositories? "No, you'll have to arrange another appointment". We all end up sleeping from about 6am-10am. Called up the doctors first thing "sorry no appointments. You should have called at 8am" "can you just write a prescription, she had an appointment at 2am" "No". Ugh.

Also, effing spiders! Not talking "itsy bitsy" ones, but those with roughly 6-8 cm leg-span. Been catching at least a couple every week. Eww! For some reason if they manage to run away, they tend to show up in my bedroom (get away you creeps!)

At least it's not the 10-12++ cm ones. Had a few of those running around the house a couple years back. One crawled around on the wall, and another found a "home" in the kitchen sink.

I'm just glad I don't live in Australia, or anywhere else where these things can be dangerous...

Sorry for the lateness of my replies.

I currently have been preparing for my 34th birthday party.

We have been very busy. Sushi rice, rice vinegar, sugar, veggies, eggs, wasabi, soy sauce, nori and caffeine-free cola have been on the list.
