Is it the full moon?  Is Mercury retrograde?  It appears it has been a hard week for so many of us so...don't take your frustration out on some stranger...Put your vent here.  Go ahead ladies(or gentlemen) ...Letter rip..don't hold back...Ah...feel the relief! 
 
I don't want to hear about the weed whacker again.
I don't want to see one more commercial for the chin flab buster or the Sham Wow.
I want to wake up just one day and not feel like someone beat my hips and fanny fat with a meat mallet.
I don't want to get out the milk and bowl and find there is one stupid shreaded wheat square left in the box.  Bad hubby..bad bad hubby.
I do not want the fire department to drain the hydrants without warning again so that I am standing in the shower with shampoo in my hair and no water for an hour.
And...I do NOT want to walk into a store in early September and see all the Christmas decorations out already.
 
There.  Whew...feels good.

After waiting almost an hour for a load of clothes to dry, I don't want to open the dryer to
only find a single dryer sheet. ....oops forgot to put the clothes in again; crazy fog!

I hate that after having a few days off and feeling better during those days, and then come back to work and feel like crap again. Grrr!!

I hate the fact that I am going to have to have a root canal, AGAIN!

I went shopping for clothes yesterday, and they keep making the clothes smaller.  turn

I had a flat tire this weekend.

I hurt. I hurt. I hurt. (rolling on the floor, having a tantrum)

Thanks, I feel better.

I put one slice of cheese too many in my scrambled eggs this morning.  (It's supposed to be one slice per two eggs, not two slices!)  Now I feel like there is a bowling ball sitting in my stomach, not to mention that this will be just great for my IBS!  And I don't even have fibromyalgia!  At least not that I know of. 

My husband - there isn't enough room here to do all of the venting I need to do about him!  shakehead

Robin, I guess what you do with the clothes is worse than what I often do - put the clothes in without the dryer sheet!  turn

And JoKat, give it time; I'm sure you'll come up with something to vent abouttongue

I forgot one more vent.  My eye doctor's office called me yesterday and said I would not be able to have my scheduled cataract surgery in the facility in the town where I live.  They said it is because my deductible is too high and they would not be able to receive any money for themselves, and therefore I would have to pay full amount as well!  So now they are scrambling to find a facility that will actually work for me in terms of insurance.  These facilities are 45 minutes to an hour or more away; the one in my town is 15 minutes away.  Insurance and medical red tape frustrate me so much!!!  shakehead

I saw a new rheumy last Friday. I thought she was wonderful...I had my doubts about her CNA...anyway, she gave me new scripts for gabapentin and vicoprofen. The vicoprofen I have been taking for ages, nothing new, but needed a new script. As I'm leaving, I ask for the scripts, she tells me they have an electronic hookup to the mail order pharmacies as well as the local ones, I use CVS and she already electronically sent the orders in...so cool! ok, wonderful, right? WRONG! that was Friday. I stop at CVS on Saturday, no order for pain meds and it's a THREE DAY HOLIDAY WEEKEND...long story short...today is Wednesday and I have yet to be able to get a hold of this ***** doctor! Not only was she off Labor Day, ok, I'll give her that, in addition to the weekend, but Tues is her normal day off, so she was off yesterday too and her darling CNA, who was working, never called me back. All I got was voice mail. Yes, I called CVS and they faxed and phoned the doctor with no response. I know the answer to this is find another doctor, but this is the 3rd in the past six months. I am beginning to become a little frantic because I am down to my last few vicoprofen. I did call again this morning and told the receptionist "do NOT put me into voice mail" and I got her to listen to me. She took my info and paged the doctor. She called me back, the receptionist about 45 minutes later, just to tell me that she did get the message to the doctor and she'd be contacting me, oh and that she apologized. I said "ok, did she fill the order?" and she repeated her message. Talk about feeling like you are talking to a robot.
I'm still waiting to hear...this is so stressful...just what I need, a little more stress to flare up more pain...

I have one more vent too.  I want to look and feel like Cher.  She has fibro and is a year older than me.  I want whatever she takes to still be able to dance around on the stage...and I don't mean her plastic surgeon.  How come she doesn't have aching arm and fanny flab...huh?

I went shopping yesterday for a dress for my son's wedding. Not only did they make all the clothes smaller, there was nothing for me to try on. They will order a dress I like, in my size, but I don't know how it will look on me and I can't return it. Who buys a dress unseen, un-tried-on and that can't be returned. Every wedding store seems to be this way. What am I going to wear?!?!?!?!?!? Diane

Ok I don't vent much, but I'll give it a try.

  • Can I please go to bed one night without pain in my neck, back, legs ,arms (Ok I think you get the point)?
  • Is it too much to ask that i don't leave my coffee cup on top of the car as I pull off in the morning. (It only happens 2 or 3 times a week)
  • If I hear one more person say "You don't look sick" I may just have to throw them off a bridge
  • Ok I had one more but the fog has taken over and I can't remember.  Oh, that reminds me I hate that stupid fog

I wish I could participate.  I know I have a lot to vent about but I can't remember them right now!  I've been sitting here for five minutes and my brain is a clean slate.  smhair

Miriam, did you talk to the pharmacist at CVS?  One time, my doctor didn't call in my meds and it was a weekend and they gave me a three day supply until they could reach the doctor.  Now, I don't take narcotics so I'm not sure if they do that with narcotics but it's worth asking.  You shouldn't be left in pain like that and some narcotics you shouldn't stop that quickly!

I am frustrated that school has been in for less than 2 weeks and my 6 year old has been to the office 3 times! I am frustrated because I don't know how handle the situation, because he isn't like this at home. I am also frustrated because I have no idea where he learned to stick his tongue out as an insult.
I am sad because I missed going to the symphony due to the FM.
I am angry because I haven't been able to get to the grocery store for two weeks now and hubby has to keep bringing home "quick-fix" meals because I am hurting, and it's eating into the food budget.
And I am still so depressed about my Mom passing, especially now that my son is having trouble in school and I need advice.

It is 4p and I finally got a call from the doctor's office. They continue to say that it was a "mixup" on the part of the pharmacy and the pharmacy denies any such thing. Whatever, it is now ready to pick up. I am on my way there. Thankfully I didn't run out of pain meds, but I was very close, too close for comfort. I've been on this same medication now for over ten years and I have never taken more than the prescribed dose and thankfully it continues to work for me without having to increase the dose. Anyway, Sherrine, thanks for asking. I was really stressed out about this today. By the way, I got a hold of the doctor' email, the director of the entire practice, and it's a HUGE practice and I wrote him a letter explaining what happened. For whatever that is worth, it made me feel better,
thanks again

Well, yesterday I wanted to vent so badly about my hubby.
I was in the bedroom reading, and he was in the living room playing WoW. I got thirsty and went through the living room to the kitchen and got myself a glass of juice.
He told me I was inconsiderate because I didn't bring him a drink. This is something he complains about a LOT ... I make dinner and he wants me to bring the dinner, which I just spent at least 30 minutes making, while he's in front of the computer.
Say What?
yes, it is apparently horribly inconsiderate of me to not bring him a drink when he's busy doing his own thing and I'm doing mine (I won't even get into the fact that when I DO bring him something he either complains that it's not what he wanted or takes one sip and leaves it on the coffee table. He also tends to eat more food than I do, or require different condiments ... so I prefer to let him fix his own plate so that he's happy with the result.)
After getting upset and having a veritable waterfall of tears come out of my eyes, I made sure that he knew that I am NOT his maid or his waitress. I haven't mastered the talent of carrying two glasses full of liquid AND two plates at the same time while also turning out the light in the kitchen (which is good for the electric bill and consequently his wallet :P ). So, for dinner at least, I expect him to get his own stuff. Now, I do bring him food if it's something like quesadillas or sandwiches ... which I can stack on one plate. He's a grown man and if he's thirsty while he's sitting playing his video game (and, for all intents and purposes, ignoring me) he can get his happy behind up and go get it himself. I also informed him that if he sees me heading toward the kitchen and he's thirsty, he is most welcome to ask me to bring him something and I probably will be able to fill his request.
This is the best part ... he tells me he doesn't notice me heading toward the kitchen ... because of his game he's SOOOOO focused on. Perhaps I should walk in front of the screen?
LOL
Now, when we are doing something together and I go to get a drink, I usually bring him back something. However, I am waaaaaay less willing to bring him stuff when he's playing video games. Why would I want to make it all the more easy for him to continue focusing on his games and pretty much ignoring me?
hmmmm ...
Am I being inconsiderate? Probably a little ... but I don't have a single scrap of motivation to wait on him while he's doing a solitary activity. It sort of feels like I would be rewarding him for abandoning me to my own devices.
What do y'all think?

Vesta...I'm staying out of all stores until Dec 15th so I don't have to think about Christmas until I'm ready to. So I'll stock up on books so I don't have to watch television and here how I should buy a trojan stimulator for someone for Christmas...right!

I had a wedding to go to and I bought a skirt and camisole top. Honey, I'm 200 lbs and 5' tall and it was
PINK. Jeez, I looked like a girl. OMG, I haven't worn one in 15 years or so. (Don't want to overdo it). As the
skirt didn't have pockets like my shorts do I had to borrow a purse from my granddaughter. I don't own one.
 
My serious vent is why can I get ready for work in 9 minutes (time  between snooze bars) and it takes
my man 1/2 hour?  My car got sick and needs new wheel bearings, racings and hub so I have to car
pool with someone who is NOT a morning person. I have to get up at 4 to get him ready by 4:45 so
I can make it to the bagel shop before work. It opens at 5, needless to say we're aways LATE!!
To top it off, without my car I have to sit at the picnic table at work instead of kicking back in the drivers
seat, closing my eyes and vegging. Then seeing as I get out of work an hour before he does I have to wait
for him to get out of work then drive the extra hour to come and pick me up. AAARRRGGGHHH. 
Hope we can find a hub at the junkyard as this is getting old fast.
 
To top it off I have most of my Christmas shopping done so I don't have to worry about it later.

WhiteChocChip, I don't think you are being inconsiderate at all.  Ignoring one's wife is inconsiderate, as is complaining when she does bring something to him and it isn't exactly what he wanted.  He knows what he wants; he can get it himself.  If he were working on his thesis or some important online study, I could see you bringing him food or drink so he could continue working at something as important as that.  But a game?  Naaahhhh!!!

I'm especially sympathetic to you because my husband neglects me.  I have been so depressed about it lately.  Actually, I should be used to it by now considering he has neglected me for pretty much our whole 32 year marriage!  Why is it that the same guy who can't spend enough time with you when you are dating suddenly has no time for you after you get married?  I'm so fed up.   sad

WhiteChocChip, I also a "WoW widow." Since it's getting colder my BF is in front of the screen QUITE a bit. He tends to not take his dog out for runs when it's "WoW season" so I started tying little notes to his collar (the dog's) like I was writing the dog love notes and my BF is the spurned lover. Stuff like: "My darling handsdome boy, I know he will never catch on to us. There he is, sitting in front of WoW like it's his new religion. Quick, get your harness on and we can run away to Mexico. Quick!" And he will usually put his dog's harness on and take him out. I've stopped doing things for him if he's playing WoW. That's my rule. He actually asked me to go to the grocery store for him while he was "on a raid." I said sure - and I got everything on my list. He'd neglected to tell me anything he needed!

World of Warcraft... THAT's my pet-peeve rant, all done now.

This is the second time this has happened to me. I am sitting in class and some smartass nursing major start ranting about "hypocandriacs" and of course she includes those with fibro in this title. It takes a lot of inner strength to not go off at this ignorance. Can you believe such a person would choose nursing as a career???? I canrespect people who are a little hesistant of fibro since it's time in the lime light is still relatively recent but to totally dismiss ones suffering to be hypocandrism?? Really there are thousands and thousands of people like us just choicing this horrible path? I tell u what then my body has taken it to a whole new level because it tricked me too. :P sorry that really annoysme. Hopeful not too many classses with such people

That's just ludicrous, Starynight.  Somehow I think her patients will NOT be getting much TLC from her.

KGood ...

I'm sorry your hubby neglects you :(
Mine spends time with me a lot. He just seems to expect that I will bring him food and drinks when he's not spending time with me. I knew he would be focused on his game ... he did the same thing when we were dating. It doesn't bother me that he plays his game ... usually he plays while I'm taking naps. I'm tired all the time from Fibro :( If he thinks I'm going to make it easier to ignore me when he's playing he's got another think coming though!

Littleneck ...
How did you know what game I was talking about?
I actually love the background music for WoW. It puts me to sleep. Sometimes while he plays I take a nap snuggled next to him on the couch ... which is nice, cause he is warm! I also actually like to watch him play a little ... but that gets boring really quick.
That's so cute tying notes on your dog. I wish I had a dog!
I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one who refuses to wait on a WoW-hypnotized man!
Which brings me to my other pet peeve. The grocery store is on the way home. I cannot count how many times I have said to him "Hey honey, bring _____ home with you." and he never does. I've tried making him a list or writing a note to remind him ... but it doesn't work. Maybe I should refuse to let him play WoW if he doesnt' bring home the requested items ...
