    I hate that I am so angry/frustrated about or hate so many things that I keep deleting my post because it’s consistently becoming this meandering tirade of I-wish-things-were-different-not-like-they-used-to-be-but-a-little-like-they-used-to-be-but-totally-different-because-everything’s-broken-and-I’m-oversharing-and-argh-religion-argh-public-schools-in-the-US-argh-why-can’t-I-seem-to-make-any-headway-in-helping-my-kids-make-friends-and-why-is-everything-so-expensive-and-ARGH!

    I'm so sorry you're feeling this way. It seems trite, but when I have episodes like that, I repeat a saying my mom often told me: This too shall pass. Now that she's raised 8 kids and is almost 80, I tend to believe her. And it usually does pass.

    Hang in there. Feel free to vent, overshare, go off on tangents....that's why we're here.

    Not trite in any way. I totally agree, sort of why I gave up on the first 8 iterations of my post as I realized it was a general argh thing that I’ll continue to work on and it’ll pass, I’ll find another approach, or I’ll learn that I have no control.

    When I think about it I usually remember that this too shall pass and I give thanks to all of the women who have reminded me of this (silly that I’ve never heard that from a man, though I’m sure many have said it). So thank you (& your mother) for the reminder

    During the times I forget, I try to at least remember that stress is just the difference between reality and one’s expectations... so if those expectations can be changed, well, there you go: no more stress on that point.

    I think this is the most eloquent way I've ever heard this put. Thank you!

    I was here 2 days ago. I think I typed up my frustration 2 or 3 times. Deleted it. I knew if I kept it up, I would probably regret it. I try to remember things could be worse, and they arent. And yes, as stated above, it will pass. Also, after reading what I had typed, I realized, I am just lonely. Not angry at anyone. I have interests that I have, and not everyone has those interests. I would love to do these things, but my family isnt too interested in them, there fore...most likely...I will be doing them alone. I am a very guarded person. I dont have any friends. And it will stay that way. I just do not get along very well with other women. My hair clothes and make up and the latest office gossip and especially tv shows that are just plain garbage...arent my thing. Really....they arent. As for doing these interests on my own, I feel guilty for wanting to do them alone and leaving my family behind while I full fill my interests and needs. But, they just dont want to go as often as I need. Since completing my physical therapy, eating right for my diabetes and pre MS diagnosis, I have a lot more energy, and my pain is down. Not completely gone, but subsided quite a bit. So I do my body maintainance at the PT place and of course my dog walking. This weekend, I will be 42. I dont know how much longer I will be able to enjoy and use my body. So I am going to do my very best to take care of my temple.
    I hope things are going well for you.

    Ding ding ding - bang on.

    It can be a real struggle knowing you have your body now but that it will experience a certain kind of possibly rapid decline. Trying to take care of yourself, your needs, your family, etc. but also to honor the limitations you’ll experience all too soon. Doing things you may not get to do again, learning how to prepare for expected changes. Just scratching the surface. Luck has little to do with it so I'm hesitant to say ‘good luck’ but my good thoughts go out to you.

    I hate that people are dead in northern California because our government officials didnt have their act together in notifying everyone of the fire. This is the same crap that happened last year in Napa Valley.
    I want to scream at them, why cant they take the lessons and guides for how its done in Southern California? They HAVE TO notify everyone. We have more fires, more evacuees, and far less deaths. (single digit versus dozens)

    I am so mad!
    (Yes, I understand there are fewer escape routes, and the fire was moving quickly.... but send the damn emergency alert!)

    Authorities issued only limited evacuation alerts in Paradise as monster fire moved in - Los Angeles Times

    (Is it ironic Im annoyed that our power company started preemptively cutting power in high risk areas during this latest Santa Ana Red Flag wind event?)

    My spelling and typing are fine, its my keyboard that doesnt cooperate.
