    @Ewok Poet [:D] [:D] You're doing JUST the right thing with the anxiety, thought-busting them with thinking about what is more likely/how things turned out well before. @};-

    @Mistress_Renata wow, that was something with the dishwasher. :eek: I wasn't even using it! [face_laugh]

    My voice came back and so I will return to work tomorrow. A yeah to that, because one colleague in my team is down since 3 weeks. My new colleague is glad to have the integration kindergarten teacher and the brandnew stand-in. (The old stand-in moved to another kindergarten closer to her son´s school.)

    All the other departments will be happy with my return, too, because the teams can stay together this way. Nobody runs danger to be send into the creché where snotty noses and viruses wait.

    Plus DarthUncle will be glad to have party time with his bags from the Frezenius Institute and the warming-up plate all by himself. My curious nose will stop poking around.

    Wow, now we are not only invaded by medical boxes and all the garbage that home dialysis causes. (And I still feel bad about the extra costs for electricity thanks to the warming-up plate that is on night & day, the garbage bags for contaminated stuff and the amount of water.)

    DarthUncle´s kidney specialist send even two dialysis nurses, checking our flat. Woah!

    In so far everybody feels pleased, but nobody wants to drink or eat, just discuss medical issues. I feel a bit lost and, after evacuating all the plants from my husband´s office into the living-room (due to the earth that is in each plant pots and could host dangers for the dialysis process itself), I drew back on the balcony.

    If everybody thinks I post too much fan fic these days or comment on by far to many, this is my way of staying sane.

    Can´t wait to be back at work tomorrow!

    DarthUncle manages nicely with the dialysis process without me anyway. Because he is neat and clever.

    I had the weirdest dream last night, and that's saying something because I will get fanfiction ideas from dreams I have. The cause of this dream was a Frozen umbrella one of my little girls has, and the fact I was looking at trailers for the Incredibles 2. This is what resulted: Elsa and Anna Arendel have just moved to Metroburg to begin their careers as a CEO and a robotics engineer, and Anna and Syndrome become a couple. Will expand on this later, possibly.

    So, this past week I got to be part of a little appreciation video that was made by some fans for Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico's actress) after a bunch of cyber-bullying and harassment led her to delete her Instagram account. Here it is, and my rather silly little clip starts at around 3:59:

    Good on you. I can't really post my true thoughts on those troglodytes, for I would be dropping F-bombs like Tupac. ;)

    Poor Kelly Marie. She deserves non of this non-sense.

    I recently had a nice facebook PM conversation with one of the older SW actors from the OT. We use to bump into one another during the cons and during the comic con here in Berlin, which took place shortly before my father´s death, he even called my name through the big hall.

    Anyway... that actor and I agreed that the fan base has changed. One can even see that here on the boards. Some people are so aggressive in their discussions. Luckily we have talented mods who try to put a lid on it.

    If you excuse me, in 10 minutes the Fresenius home dialysis trainer is back and I feel like puking up. My nerves are on fire ever since the dialysis sisters suggested that I should learn how to change a dialysis bag.

    DarthUncle tries to be sweet and supportive, but all has been a bit much for me the past days. Even though my voice has returned this morning I am so scared that I screw up.

    I can sleep over it and it is my turn tomorrow evening. My first CAPD ever. With my luck I contaminate everything and/ or make the floor wet. :(

    I had a wierd dream over the weekend.

    My back garden was neatly mowed, and a string of "daisy-chained" giant spider webs was crossing my garden diagonally.

    This shocked me awake in a reclining chair, in my front room; and as a recovering aracnaphobic that had allowed a big spider to circumvent the room without me running away and bricking the place up, I spent about 20 minutes waving my arms for errant web, looking for shiny threads, reacting to light touches, real or imagined; and generally trying to discover what had triggered that particular theme.

    Spent the day boxing files for archiving, before my team moves a floor down.

    @Sith-I-5, I totally get you. I have a vespacrabrophobia (just made that up, since bees, bumblebees and plain wasps don't scare me), yet I accidentally took a photo of a MONSTERS USELESS FOR THE ECOSYSTEM this morning. Two years ago, when one of the monsters got into my room, I hallucinated it from a caffeine overdose each time I'd, well, overdose on caffeine and not sleep due to working too much.

    In other news, I broke my record from October 2017 today. By almost 10 kilometres.

    I don't think so; you're not spamming. If life is stressful, find what joy you may. After my major weekend mess, I've had 2 days of petty annoyances, nowhere near close to what you're coping with. Sounds like Darth Uncle is doing well, though; hoping it stays that way!

    Have you recently re-watched the Lord of the Rings? Shelob would do it for me!

    Lovely video, @Findswoman! I hope she sees it! It's a shame that a few rants can cut so deep. I dunno... it seems as if some people feel that THEIR view of SW is the ONLY view of SW and everyone else is WRONG and needs to die! (I could confess to that when I was younger, but I never sent hate mail).

    One should not underestimate the value of saying thank you.

    I just refreshed the faded green highlighter on a rare thank you note left for me, when I secured a colleague's forgotten laptop.

    Last few days at work have been pretty exsausting, I rarely managed to get my work done in time and my superior told me she has never seen someone working that slow, which makes me even more nervous, and probably slower, around her. Now I have a few days off or late shift and, hopefully won´t see her again wednsday but it still worries me.

    Also I recenetly started to watch SW rebels completly, having so far only seen some bits and pieces of it. And so far I really enjoy it.

    About to leave for the first day of WordCamp Europe here in Belgrade. Super-anxious. Might plug in my laptop from there and rant. O_O Or read fic to CTFD.

    Glad things are going well @AzureAngel2! :)

    It's been a slightly hectic week for me. I was an idiot and didn't arrange to get a new medication specialist in the new area I live in and now I have to schedule an appointment with my current/old one, arrange a ride, get blood work done etc. Long story short: make sure you have all your ducks in a row below and after moving and not nearly a year later.

    I'm okay, the closest thing that nearly happened to me was last week I was so anxious I wasn't paying attention in a parking lot but wasn't hurt and recognized that I was behaving in an unsafe manner and took my quick working anxiety medication which kicked in by the time I left the store.


    Better news: my baby sister Joyce is on her way to Utah! She's going to stay with Kathy and Jean, until Kathy gets married, get a job and possibly get some schooling in/decide what she wants to do.

    Those are great drawings.
    I love The Emperor as a cool old dude with the sunglasses and bling.
    And Irene.
    They're great real life observations.

    Had a pretty god day at work today, my superior wasn´t there and we managed to get the work done in time. But something worries me as there will be photo call on monday for our section, while I´m at university. So I asked my coworker if I have to attend it and he said no, but was a bit unsure so we asked our boss(of the entire marekt) and he also said that I don´t have to if I can´t, but I´m still worried it might get me into trouble with my superior again.

    @Anedon have you raised, privately, any of the problems you are having with this supervisor either with colleagues or that manager?

    Might be worth having a quiet word with someone I am only seeing a snapshot from your posts but it seems possible to me you are being bullied as the new guy. You do not have to put with that and it is important to make someone else aware of it.

    Bullies rely on your suffering in silence!
