Motion sickness.

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Last week is spilling into this week. Lots of really happy and really sad all at the same time. Work stresses and unrest has been at an all time high. In addition to that I found out that a good friend of mine found her son dead (suicide) at home on Sunday. She is devastated. I have been cooking & bringing her food all week. Then my cousin, found out she is having twins which is happy news but she is sort of freaked by the prospect of twins (who can blame her!). On top of that another good friend just found out she has stomach cancer and then promptly lost her health insurance. She might have to sell her house (in this terrible market) just to pay for treatments. Friday we went to a wedding which was very happy but after I got out my best friend & co-worker, Connor, called me in tears to tell me that he and James (our crazy boss) finally had it out and the end result of that conversation was that James gave him two options: termination or resignation which stunned us both!! Needless to say, I am heartbroken. I have tried all I could do to fix that situation but to no avail. Now I am helping him find another job but I have no idea how I am going to cope without him. We are a team. We do EVERYTHING together. It will be much more challenging flying solo at the museum and I think I will like my job a whole lot less because of it. As a result I have also begun looking for work elsewhere. That said, my husband STILL can't find employment here so now he is looking in Atlanta which is the icing on this happy/sad cake. I am happy to stay in the south but desperately don't want to leave Tennessee. So, there you have it. Major emotional roller coaster. I'm kinda motion sick...truth be told.

That said, Connor sent me this (below) this morning to try and cheer us both up. He always knows exactly how to make me laugh and smile!

    Oh hon, I am so so so so sorry.

First of all - suicide is a terrible thing to have to deal with and you are an angel for helping your friend out.

Second - can your friend with cancer sign up for "Obamacare"? Nobody should have to go without insurance, especially cancer patients. Everyone loves to knock "Obamacare" but it was made for situations like this. There are also a ton of cancer support networks she can get in touch with. It is NOT shameful to ask for help.

About your coworker - I know you love your job and you are fabulous at what you do, but that sounds a bit toxic. It especially hurts to watch a friend go and even more so when it is for ridiculous reasons. Hugs!

Keep finding those little moment to make you smile. And yes, there is ALWAYS someone who has it worse than you. You have your body, mind, clean water, shelter, etc. There is always something left to be thankful for! Chin up, hopefully some good comes your way soon!
