>So, I’m handling the miscarriage really well. I’m focused on the next round, recovering physically from my procedures, and my cold is even improving. Still, I find myself getting really annoyed with a certain co-worker. She knows I’ve been trying to get pregnant for a year. She knows I recently miscarried. Still she persists in dumping all her work and personal life frustrations on me. This isn’t a new phenomenon. I have always been her venting person (and I’ve always disliked it). I just can’t get myself worked up over her issues, you know?
Well now I find that I’m actively disliking her. I’m trying to keep my stress levels down and I really don’t need to take on someone elses, you know? I feel like going, “You’re in school and it’s hard. You’re working and it’s hard. Try losing a pregnancy you’ve spent a fortune on and invested a lot of emotion into and see how it compares. IT DOES NOT. Your problems are piddly. Now leave me alone.” Not very nice, but it’s how I’m feeling. I need to find a way to nicely ask her to keep it to herself. Also trying to figure out if she’s really this clueless or I’m just being overly sensitive. Man alive.
