I'm mad, confused and ticked....

Any questions? Glad you asked! OK so I am settling into this new skin of staying at home and not running the rat race of life. It is getting easier, but some things are getting harder. For example, ashamedly, I have been the "career woman" for so long, I lose patience with people who don't do what I tell them to do, i.e. my son. It is a nightly battle with homework. That is all I am going to say about that.

Confused...I don't know where to start in shoveling out this house. Yall I am perfectly serious when I say, I am about to get one of those big dumpsters and put in my yard and just start chunking stuff. I am totally disgusted. I want to rearrange my kitchen but I can't. I physically can't. I don't want anyone to help me cause I want to do it. Do you know how mad it makes me when I realize I CAN'T do something. Oh it is not pretty. I want to rip out the carpet in my son's bedroom and put down plywood if I had my way, but I will settle for cheap flooring. I promise you there is a Pulitzer prize winning science experiment and cure in his carpet.

Ticked - at the whole healthcare system...I cannot even begin to explain why I am so mad. It is a LONG drawn out story, but it is about to work my last nerve. Whatever happened to taking care of your patient? Not, am I going to get paid for that, how much money will I charge to sign a paper, oh it will be two weeks before your blood work is back but I am going to give you medicine for seven days...need I go on? I have significant health problems that have to be dealt with on a DAILY sometimes minute by minute basis. If I knew all the answers and knew what to do I would not be coming or calling you now would I? I have some dear friends who work in all areas of medicine, doctors, nurses, social workers, medical records, etc. I hope I don't make you made by this rant bc I am not talking about YOU! I am talking about that other half a million out there.

I am doing realitivly well but I am just aggravated beyond words right now...Maybe my next post will be inspiring...let's hope.
