While you are stuggling to nail the board, exhausting yourself running up and down those stairs, making electrical repairs, and driving to the ER--a rare occurrence, I'm sure--there is NO ONE telling you that you can't do it, can't do it without them, offering lots of critical help but very little physical help, predicting that you will end up in the ER, promising they will do it for you later but later never seems to arrive, or--and this is when I lose it--asking you to bring them a beer since you are going right by the refrig on the way to the breaker box!!!! LOL!!! Oh, and this: they have no patience and no compassion when it comes to night sweats, mood swings, and hot flashes; try the standing-near-naked-in-front-of-the-fan-thing and see what happens! BTW, I really loved your complete 360 response!
