    I'm so sorry Susan

    Bonita, I also have elevated levels of hcg from time to time - enough to test positive on a hpt. I don't know why it happens, just does. In fact, just over a year ago my af was late and I tested 3 times with a frer and every one was positive. It's not uncommon for some women to have a level of hcg detectable with a pg test.

    I am responsible for my boss's Inbox. I have to sort all his emails into his subfolders - litigation, environmental, wholesale, HR, corporate, blah blah blah. He usually has a couple thousand emails for me to handle every week. Last week I'm sorting his mail and I come across an email from someone else in the dept - a fellow smoker of his - a chick who I do not get along that well with. Anyway, the week before last when both kids were sick I had to call in because I couldn't send them to the dayhome with puking and fevers (obviously). The email from her has a subject line of "updated legal report" so I'm thinking it's something I have to file. Because my view is set up so I can read emails without opening them I see the email between the two of them: He took the email I sent him saying that my kids were sick and I wouldn't be in and he forwarded it to her with the commentary "I think they should get environmental tests done in that house." She replied "No kidding!!". I was freaking pi$$ed, humiliated, betrayed, and generally not trusting him whatsoever. I confronted him last Friday afternoon. I went into his office with the email and asked him about it and he just kept reading the email over and over, just trying to figure out what to say in response (keep in mind he's a lawyer). He said "I didn't mean it to be a joke. I was being serious about you needing to have air quality testing in your house". I almost fell off my chair in disbelief. I do not for one second believe a word of it and I'm insulted that he thinks I'm that stupid. You're serious? Yet you forward my confidential email to another party not even privy to that information and make a 'serious' comment about the air quality in my house? He knows my son has asthma, he knows they spenht 50 hours a week with our caregiver, he knows how incredibly stressful Ben's health has been to me and DH and yet he forwards my email to a coworker I do not get along with because he feels like getting her feedback about the environmental 'risks' in my house? I told him he was completely out of line and that I feel betrayed and that now I wonder how often I'm the butt of jokes out in the smoking area (or worse, my KIDS are the butt of jokes). No matter what he said to reassure me, I just don't believe him and I don't want to work with him anymore. There's no professional respect from me towards him. I've had a pi$$ poor week, but the upside is there's a chance I can go down to 3 days a week and not have to work for him anymore. Please keep your fingers crossed for me because if I don't get this new position I have the feeling I'll end up leaving a job that I like and that pays amazing.s

    Thank you. I will take any and all positive experiences. I am doing my best to just wait and see what happens. My breasts have been very sore and full (and they leak) as if I was pg, but I know for sure I am not. It was a peace of mind that this doctor did an ultrasound. I kept having visions of that show where they were pg and did not know it. I have been having faint pg tests since before Thanksgiving.

    That is horrible! My fingers are crossed for you. You should not have to work in that kind of environment. So unprofessional!

    My day? 10 hours in emergency with Rob to try and find out about his intense leg pain. It turns out that it might not be fibrous displaysea - it might be something else. The CT was suspicious. But they don't know what that something might be yet. But some of the things that it looks like are really not good. And whatever it is, it's aggressive. It has gone from not much to holy *** in 2 months. They admitted him to the hospital and gave him a lot of drugs. They will do an MRI in the morning. Now we wait and pray.

    Bonita - I hope they get everything figured out for you. That is all so scary.

    Susan - I am so sorry. That is so hard.

    What is it with this day? It sucked! Here's to a better tomorrow.

    That is so sh**ty. I'm so sorry. What a jerk. At my company HR would be all over that. It's not okay. I hope your other situation comes through!
