We really do need a hugs button! .
Sometimes things just gang up on us and everything just feels bad. There really isn't an answer to those times -- just have to take on one issue at a time and trudge on. On top of it all, this time of year is especially prone to problems cropping up and getting us down. The frustration will pass, and eventually all these issues will be resolved.
I've had several such issues rise up at me - some just annoyances, such as, after a month of numerous copays, finding out that my insurance actually was charged LESS than my copay on some prescriptions, and others promising to become bigger issues, like my daughter's miscalculation in applying for school loans. Diabetes hasn't been cooperative or friendly this month, either, and my next endo appointment with some potentially "challenging" labs is fast approaching. By the way, I got a badf haircut last month, so I "made up for it" by going to the same place this month -- and getting ANOTHER bad haircut. I think, though, that it's growing on me!
You are a good mother, doctor and person, and yes, sometimes life sucks. Tomorrow's another day.
