Is it over yet?

this week? is it over? This has been a long week! Work has been extremely stressful for the last two days. So yes, shit did go down in my store. A managers position was eliminated. On a positive note, if there is one, she was offered another position, although it is a step down. The whole situation depresses me. She has worked really hard to get where she is, just bought a house a year ago, and now she takes a pay cut. To make matters worse there is no one hiring in the area, which I am sure is nation wide. I just want what is best for her, I just feel so bad. I am just so glad to have a job right now, I don't know what I would do if I lost mine, and being pregnant, I would be devastated. I am broke out in hives from head to toe from stress-let me tell you how attractive that looks. On the bright side at least it is mainly on my arms and legs, but it looks like I have a bad case of the chicken pox. I haven't had this happened since 2002, when a different employer I was working for, decided to close. Actually, until now, I never realized the coincidence-how strange. I have also been having really bad abdominal pains, so yesterday I finally went to the doctor. Yes, I was just there 3 days ago. After some tests and a consult, I have a bladder infection. It sucks, and hurts. So I am on some antibiotics for it. I am one of those people that hate taking drugs. I have taken more drugs in the last two years between fertility drugs, vitamins, and everything else-it is crazy.

Okay enough complaining. Great news-my crib is coming this weekend!! I am so excited to put it together and set up the nursery!!

OMG! I am sure the rash is not fun. I have cases of the stress prego rash on and off and the doctor says that it is normal but that I need to reduce my stress level. Work is really hard right now but I am going to try and take that on. I would suggest the same thing to you. I would say that a day of rest and relaxation with DH will help tremendosly. Let him coddle you for just a bit and you will be a ton better for it. Thank you for the advice as well. I appriciate it.

Oh girl...that sounds miserable! I hope your crib came and you got to have some fun doing nursery stuff at least. Hope you're feeling better soon and that things get better!
