    I think I'm going to go cry.

    Do it!! There is nothing wrong with having a good cry. (As I have noticed myself the last week, been sobbing at the drop of a hat lately)

    You're stressed hun. I've been there, I am there, we've all experienced it. It sucks, but you are entitled to, and should cry your head off! (Screaming is a nice punctuation sometimes as well).

    As far as not being much help to anyone--we'll sorry to disagree but you're dead wrong! And I will fight about this too! Recently you sent me an IM out of the blue. No reason why. I hadn't posted anything, or been in chat for a long time. You just wrote me a note to say hi, and tell me that you "appreciated" me. You know that whole scripture about words at the right time? Yeah--totally applies in this situation. I was feeling generally down anyway--and not feeling the love, and feeling like I didn't really matter to anyone at all. And while you and I have never spoken, except through board posts, and private messages here, it really touched me. I was able to stop my crying for a few minutes, and smile, cuz someone I didn't even know, who I had never done anything for, had done something so sweet for me, that she would never realize how important it was to me to hear that. (Well now maybe you know cuz I told ya).

    And then a few weeks later, when the proverbial poo really hit the fan, you were also there--when I publicly needed help and a chance to vent, you were still there providing words of encouragement.

    So we do what we can, when we can. But don't ever say you haven't helped anyone- You have no idea what you've already done. *lots of hugs!!* and much

    Pull up a chair and I offer you a of tea to comfort your soul and Visit Smiley Central!'s to cheer up up. and a Visit Smiley Central!with bubbles and smoothing Visit Smiley Central!.

    I support you in taking care of yourself Berylblue. In society we as women are taught to take care of others first. In order to care for others we need to learn ways to take care of ourselves first before we are able to care for others.

    Just wanted to say I'm so sorry for not welcoming all the new ones, not responding yet to all the wonderful replies to my posts, not saying happy birthday to everyone, and not being a good friend to those in need. I'm sorry. I've been sick, as well as preoccupied.

    WOW, You have put on yourself quite a burden of responsibility here. I agree with Big Tex and others.

    You have been good at all of the above but I suspect because you care and you have given of yourself accordingly. Rosemarie, giving is just that, GIVING.

    Don't beat yourself up because your gift is momentarily limited. I appreciate what you do. Do what you can when you can, after you have taken care of yourself.

    As for work problems, from time to time they make each of us Visit Smiley Central!

    Rosemarie, just not long ago you sent me a nice pm. I can guarantee you that every time I just see that berylblue has posted, I smile joyfully. Just being you, brings joy to me.

    Blondie ((((hugs))))

    I'm sorry to hear you are feeling so bad. It sounds like the co-worker and the boss are both jealous.The only suggestion I can give is don't listen to that co-worker! Take your power back dear. I also agree that you should keep notes. I hope you are feeling better soon, and that things go better for you at work.

    Love, Prudence

    ntw dear lady! Sometimes we have the energy and desire to jump in on every thread, give an opinion, offer a welcome, hug a hug...and sometimes we don't. Sometimes we give, sometimes we take; and you give a lot more than you take

    Now, as for your boss...
