just.keep.swimming's Journal, 24 March 2012

I'm so glad to have the new challenge starting Tuesday. I've been slacking. I look forward to a new reason to focus.
:-) I've been kind of awol this week. Sorry that I missed everyone's journals.

Well, here's my week:
Work was outstanding! I finally hit my goal to average 20 calls a day and will get the extra $50 bonus. It's good to get extra money for doing the same work I'd do any other day. And I got a second monitor, which is causing a little bit of drama. I didn't ask for it; the IT guy just came over and set it up. The rest of my training class is upset because they didn't get one and someone started the rumor that it's a reward for doing well. I worry that I got it because they were tired of me being slow to respond to chats or switching screens when I take videos for bug tickets. Either way, it's pretty cool and I hope the others all get one soon. I'm hoping this a good thing- I'm also the first of the group that gets to go to training classes. But that is kind of something I've asked for. I told my supervisor that I'd love to sign up for any extra trainings at any time and she seems to have taken that seriously.
Hm, what else? My best friend is starting to talk to me again. It's been a rocky road since October and we've not really talked since my birthday a month ago. I was upset with her for lying to and about me. She was upset that I have a life outside of her, and expect her to be willing to sit at the same table with people she doesn't like.
I realized how cut off I was. My best friend and I weren't speaking. The other person I'd considered a best friend is the one who tried to get me to sleep with him- so we haven't really had much contact lately. I've been very lucky to have terrific friends outside of these two. The guy I want to date continues to be an amazing friend, and my sister in law is available to talk and hang out pretty often. Plus the friend who was going to be the running buddy has kept in contact often. So, I wasn't cut off, but it was different than the old friendship dynamics.
I'm still waiting for the new thyroid dosage to kick in and hopefully help my body ease up on the exhaustion. I've been working on eating healthier this week, with mixed results. I know I just need to do a juice fast or something. I've been getting a tad bit more standing/walking/stretching in than last week. I'm not up for running, even though I'd love to be. But it's another time to work my way back up to peak. First step is working through the aches enough to sit, sleep, and start any mild exercise with a little more mobility.
The other issue is that the pharmacy hasn't had my needles for two weeks and didn't have my medicine ready. I can only go back so many times before I just say screw it. I've been taking 10 vitamin D and 10 vitamin B pills every day, since that's the amount in my injections, but I can feel the difference. Apparently my body still won't absorb them. The needles and medicines should be in today, YAY!

I've got to get ready now, have an appointment in an hour. Happy Saturday!

I read something, the other day, on a poster, it went someting like this: "A friend is someone who likes you, even when they know all of your faults." Your best friend shouldn't begrudge you the opportunity to spread your wings and include others in your circle; if she does, then she's just trying to control you, for selfish reasons. I'm glad the two of you are talking again. I have a best friend, who's still there for me, even when his wife and I are at odds with each other; which thankfully doesn't happen very often, but I know, if he wasn't my friend, we'd have no common ground to say anything to each other ever. To say it mildly, we tolerate each other. I guess I said that to say; if she's truly your friend, she'll be there, and shouldn't try to sabotage your relationships with other people, by lying. I hope you had a great day. :-)

I have arrived at the realization that someone who doesn't want me to have relationships with other people is not a "best" friend. She will always be a friend, but I am allowed to have other people in my life. I'm glad we're talking too and I hope someday we can get back to being better friends. :) Have a great weekend Kelly!
