Cerise- I can totally relate to the self-doubting aspect. I sometimes feel like I am trapped there and I will never get because no one else is ever going to hire me

I know that is not true cause I am good enough, I am smart enough and doggone it, people like me! (thank you Stuart Smalley )

Right now I am trying to focus on not getting stressed out, finding time for me, updating my work skills and improving my French (key thing to getting in the Government here).

I am starting to do yoga and my belly dance class (very theraputic and empowering I might add) starts up on September 20th. I am also reading a book on spirituality that I bought months ago hoping that I will get some grounding from that.

I talked to my mum tonight and she is improving - her speech is no longer slurry and she sounds like her spirits are a bit brighter!
Yay!

Mauvais-Hope "THE MAN" wasn't hassling you today!!! Cerise is right. When you are in a toxic environment the best thing to do is LEAVE!!! You'll never change them, and the way they treat you will never be okay. It is just too bad that we are in a bad job market now. If your sweet DH is willing to take on the financial load for a while it might be worth quiting even if things are tighter for a while. We both have done it at different times, and despite the financial hardship it was WORTH it. We are happier and less stressed because of it. (Stuart Smalley!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!) ALSO, I am thrilled to hear about your Mom. Hope the improvements continue!!!!
