This morning, I reviewed a new version of a document with my lead and she liked it. Of course she did say she wished I wrote all this stuff in the first draft and was a bit patronizing and a bit catty and a bit bitchy. But I didn't care. I've lost 4lbs amid a stressful set of weeks, working 10-12 hours and being stressed out of my mind. If I wrote this 1 year ago it would be stessed out of my mind and 11 lbs heavier. I would feel horrible but use food to relieve my stress. My job is stressful so it was easy to find 80 lbs. My career has cost me 80 lbs what a horrific price. I'm no longer hostage to it though and I refuse to sacrifice my health to stress. Thank you Band and Bandster friends.
In agreement with Amanda Panda...working with women managers is hard. I've had my share of good female mentors but on the whole, issues get emotional.
Thank you for your support...I feel like th econstant support I receive from you has prevented me from giving up.
