Dear Father John,
Oh how I have missed you! *warm huggs*
Trust *sigh* I need to gather my thoughts a bit... There is a new girl at our pharmacy, a social aquaintance and now "ex" friend that come to mind.. But, I will stick with the new "in training pharmacy tech". She caused or tried to case issues today. But, to talk about it in context I need back up a few years..
Once apon a time before marriage, children and chronic pain... I had my birthcontrol pills filled at a Pharmacy close by. The pharmacist, from that point on, took care of everything from anti biotics, acne treatments, and even cough medicine.
Fast forward 10 years, and now there is a new girl at the pharmacy that has huge problems with the pharmacist giving me small quantities of medicine in (partial fills) while meds are shipped in or paperwork updated.. one time new computer system was being implemented (different formatt). ... The point is, there is human error along the way, that I have no control over. I cannot go without many of the medicines just because someone dropped the ball and is having a hard time keeping up with her new duties as pharmacy tech in training.... Well, I dont mind a pill holiday but the doctors DO mind and pharmacist (now head pharmacist after 10yrs) seems to agree. Unfortuantly this young lady, like so many others, isnt doing anything we don't already see with startling regularity in our lives socially, casually, or professionally....
I dont "dislike" people. But, there are some people that require us to combat them with as much positive feed back as possible. Shes certianly one of them. I don't trust her for one moment at this point. And until she proves that her future behaviour has changed consistanly from her past behaviour, I will continue to avoid her where possible and to combat her constant (frankly rather heavy) negativity with as much positive reinforcment as my little body can muster. This is how I feel about ALL people who break the bond of trust or go out of their way to be negative and combative.
I can't imagine why a fellow human being would go out of their way to bring any negativity in their lives knowingly. My only guess is that, decit, lies, and negativity is garnering them some sort of "pleasure response". It is some how granting people, like those we have mentioned so far, a "pay off" or "emotional high".
As awfull as it sounds, everytime I run across one I have to fight off the urge to hugg them and ask, "Okay, now what is REALLY going on? What are you TRULY hurting from.".
*sigh* So that my two cents on trust being broken by all the people in my life, not just the porfessionals who make up the network of health care professionals we depend on.
What fantastic news that your son if finally on his way home. I am sure you miss him terribly. I know you are very proud!!!!!
I wish I could pack up my tackle and rods when I go to florida...but, my husband's uncle is an avid fisherman and I hope I can talk him to a quick sneak away! Ive never been fishing outside of our high altitude lakes here in NM.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
