Love that I've seen so many iterations of it, and it never gets old!

It gets old.
Hah, that's awesome! I will have to start trying that! I'm insecure about being judged for it, so I always try to qualify the "I'm a teacher" statement with "but I used to be an IT consultant! I have a degree in computer science!" so they don't think I'm 'dumb', but ughhh I need to stop doing that and just be proud of what I do.

On top of the thrush....I now have a tonsil infection and UTI that won't be touched by anything OTC. One of the three is giving me some hellacious fever that comes and goes, but when it comes it doesn't want to go down and sucks the life out of me.

My immune system has obviously rage quit.

BF has been on the verge of sending me to the ER, obviously against my want. He's making me at least go to an urgent care clinic tomorrow. So. Yay.

What I don't understand is that Crohn's is an autoimmune disease that makes your immune system over-active. All these secondary infections and thrush would happen if I had NO immune system. So. WTF.

My mom feels that way too, sometimes; she used to do mathematics for an engineering company, and people really act like she took a step down, but she's really happy with the choice she made.

She made the decision when she was pregnant with my sister (her second), and she was on a business trip, talking to another woman who had just had her baby and was back at work, and she realized she hated traveling when she had small kids at home. She absolutely didn't think the other lady was making the wrong choice; just that for her it wasn't the right choice.

She looked into teaching and realized she loves it in a way she didn't love her previous job. She gets a lot more out of it, and she's a really excellent teacher. I'm teaching biology labs at the university a block away from the high school she teaches at, so I see a lot of her former students and they rave about her.

I get that a lot and once I started asking "Remember when you said..." And "but you told me...", things got better. I don't lie to customers, but I won't take the sh*t they try and pull on me anymore. Oddly enough, sales have gotten better since doing that.

It's a thankless job for the most part, that's for sure. I think you get it worse being at a luxury brand.

I feel like crap, I think I have a cold...

We too, spent all the monies....

Lyzelle--your bf is right to make you go to the doctor, especially with the UTI. My dad had a catheter in for almost a year, and would get UTIs all the time. The last time he let it go too long (has no insurance) it ended up going into his kidneys as well.

2nd day at the new job and I do something stupid and hurt myself.

I bent over to pick something up and when I was straightening back up, I banged right into a big pole. Hard. Got a nasty bump on my head and chipped my freakin' tooth! Ugh. Kill me now! I have the worst head ache!
