them but found that difficult. Which made me sad. Stomach is a tight knotted ball of stress right now as I try to finish sorting out my bedroom and repress feelings of anger and resentment towards my parents who are actually being really nice to me

Stuff with parents is not easy - good for you for trying to get a balanced view even if right now you're struggling to find the good.
Thanks all, Jeff - double hug, thanks! 😁 In the end, I met my boyfriend. Stayed at his and talked things through. It was good to get things off my chest to validate my feelings. Sometimes, others dismiss them or tell me that I have “no right” to feel
them. Which is such a frustrating thing to hear as noone can cintrol their emotions to such a degree and also, sometimes I don't even feel a certain way and someone assumes I do and then says I have “no right” to - that's just totally unfair. . . Not
that any of that has been said to me in a long time. Just some comments over the weekend from my family joking that I was disorganised, my brother's girlfriend giving me books about Codependency and a book about tidying and then my parents trying to
“help” me look for a place (ie demand I put the phone on speakerphone mode when calling a landlord about an ad for a place and then taking the phone off me to talk to them themselves). . . that's why the emotions started rising!
Ha, you caught that double hug, huh? Weird this site doesn't have take-backs. I didn't scroll down to notice I hugged yesterday. Glad you talked things through and that helped!
Jeff, sometimes I double hug on purpose! Especially if I know someone is pretty down! So thanks! I appreciated it all the more whether it was intentional or not! 😊
correct tone to take with them/how to be assertive when expressing my needs yet respectful.
look for/start renting a new place.
thanks all xx
Good luck and I hope your Dad will be well again soon!
I understand you, feel similar, I decided not to make them and go with the heart He never wrong
thanks Pandas! meM, hope things improved for you after a break! 😊
thanks all! x
Also, was trying to save but money seems to keep running out. Stress level is high right now.
my pillows were falling down there. I just noticed there are scratches on the wall where the bed frame went against it so I hope it was from before and not from me! Dont know whether or not to mention it!
Soon, I will go home to get ready for the week ahead and finish the medical questionnaire for my contract etc.!
meds for it as he has mentioned it to his care team a couple of times now. I offered to run down to get him OTC anti-nausea meds but he declined as he feels he will not get sick again tonight.
Ugh how horrible. Hope he feels better and they find something to help with that!
Thanks Jeff! My guess is that he receives anti-nausea meds when he gets his chemo and it starts to wear off mid-way through the month as he has noticed a pattern where it hits mid-monthly cycle! It's just frustrating that they don't deal with it
immediately! he said they started discussing anti-nausea tablets but he can't remember why they decided against it!
I rang my brother who is a doctor, now doing further training to be a GP and he recommended an OTC drug and to mention at pharmacy that the nausea was chemo-related so they would not 'skimp' on it! haha But Dad insisted he was fine! I might pick some
up for him anyways as a precaution!!
Read through my contract yesterday evening but principal never called to go through it with me. Will send an e-mail in case he was busy or just forgot.
Met previous boss who did not ask me to come back to lead or even work as demonstrator for the summer camp that I led/taught last year. Hd seen her on campus before and always thought she was avoiding me but she was actually very friendly which was
nice. I knew from before she had asked the girl who led it before I did to do it again this year which is fine as she hs more experience than me with them. And I guess they wanted to avoid us working together as we clashed last year! Which is fine, I
prefer what I am doing now!!
Wishing you success on your path. Teaching is one of the noblest professions
Thanks Love1 for the kind words and thanks Cindy for the hug! :D
Helps stay motivated and on track, Keeping Track. Also helps with balance.
Yes, it was lovely to see how I progressed and notice and appreciate the feeling. :) I think a lot of the progress was simply due to lowering my overly high standards, accepting where I am right now and
recognising how far along the path I have come to realising my goals :) . . . I guess opening my mind and changing my perspectives a bit too, becoming more active. It's great to be able to acknowledge what you have done to bring about positive change
in your life! :) Wishing you positivity, motivation and balance too Love1 :)
Thanks. Appreciating how you can celebrate your progress. A big part of maintaining motivation is acknowledging our efforts, progress and growth.
so true Love1! 🤗
thanks guys! :)
Thanks all! 😊
Now I am sorting out the last of some loose papers in my bedroom in the final clear out push. New motivation as I will be moving out in a few weeks and I would like everything to be neat and organised! Wisdom tooth pushing up.Throbbing pain - OUCH!
thanks all 🤗
