Go sell your drama somewhere else

dont worry be happySo, you know those people who are just perpetually unhappy? Their role in life is to bring you into their woes.  Victims to everything and everyone.  We all know one or two of them.  I have spent many years walking on egg shells in attempts to avoid fights.  Recently I just don’t care.  I don’t know if it was the mastectomy, or the realization of how close cancer was with the pathology results or maybe it is just the fact that I am to dam old for other people’s drama but I just will not allow myself to be sucked in.  We all have difficulties in life, we all have problems, sickness, bills and plain old obstacles.  Such is life.

How can some be so angry all of the time?

You can choose to live your life how you like.  I can also choose to say enough.  Life is too short.

Testing my patience

As I sat watching television last night it hit me that I had never heard from the doctor about the ultrasound results.  I guess that whole try not to worry thing must be working because amazingly I totally forgot about it.  I added it to the to do list for today, I called first thing this morning.  I received a call back within 20 minutes only to be told that since I see the doctors in the second office my file is at that office and they would not be in there until after 4:30.

At 4:40pm this afternoon I called and spoke to a rather short, rude person who seemed annoyed that I would be bothering her for such information.  SHe proceeded to tell me that they would normally not have such a report so quickly since I had just had the test performed Friday.  I told her I received a call in under 24 hours the first time and this was a follow-up.  She put me on hold and returned to inform me that indeed the report was sitting on the doctors desk, that the doctor was not in yet and that after seeing patients she would get to it.

take-a-breathIn my continued effort to remain calm, I hung up and went about my evening waiting for a call.  At about 8 pm of course not receiving one, I called the office which of course….was closed.

I am more than a little annoyed!  I will take a breath and call in the morning.  I will continue to have positive thoughts but can not promise to continue staying calm!
