    Goodness!! What a series of unfortunate events for both of your sisters. I'm sure they will get it all worked out but man what a pain in the meantime! I'm sorry about the anxiety. I'm a little more high-strung than most (actually moreso now thanks to IF) but not terribly anxious. DH and almost all of his family (mom, dad, sister, gma)- are incredibly anxious people. Like all the time anxious. And they seem to feed off of each other. It's got to be exhausting for them but they don't know how to stop it.

    My interview yesterday went really well! I hope to have a new job soon! Just wish disability would finally get around to paying me since March 15th! I have never had a claim take so long!

    Margaret...glad your interviews all went well. Sounds like you have a good shot at a job with these two good interviews. Each one will probably offer you a job on the same day and then you have to make a decision. That's always how it seems to go. Nothing forever, then you have multiple offers at the same time. Hope this is the start of a series of good news for you!

    I am a very anxious person and I know I really should be on some meds for it but I don't want to take anti-depressants to help it. I've become more anxious over the past few years. I'll blame it on all the IF treatments. There's just certain situations and ppl that I have to be around that make me more anxious. There is a lot of anxiety in my family. A few years back when my gma was dealing with it severely her pyschiatrist said that Northern Europeans are more prone to anxiety and depression...that'd be me!

    I'm taking a break from cleaning for a few minutes. I have gotten more done than I thought.

    Meg, I get anxious too, but it makes me better at my job at times. For me it is usually manageable and nothing that a glass of wine can't fix. I am not opposed to antidepressants though - in theory, though it makes me sad that the one most likely to cause weight loss is associated with worsened anxiety. I think just living a healthy lifestyle and using non-pharmacologic means to deal with anxiety would work for a lot of people. Of course, in the course of my practice I prescribe antidepressants all day long - and many of my anxiety prone patients are helped by them.

    I had read somewhere that anxiety is good. If we didn't have anxiety then we wouldn't get things done on time or do things as well as we do. It's good pressure. My biggest concern with anti-depressants are weight gain. I was on Paxil quite a few years ago and lost a lot of wt once I was off of them. But DH reminds me that during that time in my life I had a lot going on and didn't eat a balanced diet or exercise so maybe it wasn't the anti-depressants. I think if I was truely depressed, I'd go back on them because they do help. I've asked my DH if he thinks I need antidepressants for my anxiety and he says no. I'm not... so to say "anxious" all the time but I'm more "high strung" than most ppl. And wine helps me too. When I was having that throat closing up feeling when I figured out I was anxious I thought it was an acid reflux problem but a little bit of ETOH made it go away. I didn't get that since I thought if it was reflux, it would make it worse. After I figured out it was anxiety I figured that it relaxed me enough to make that feeling go away. Also it was hell weaning off the Paxil and I never want to go through that again.

    My second interview went well. I should have an answer Monday or Tuesday. I started to have an anxiety attack at the end, not sure why but it was almost a meltdown by the time I got home. I am still awake at 1:22 am feeling so nauseous, I hate feeling nauseous I wish I would just throw up and get over it. I thought today was the day for my day 35 beta but it is Sunday. FF is predicting AF for Thursday which generally means Wednesday... I want to stop feeling so icky and exhausted, afraid to take anything in case I am pregnant, ginger ale is only helping so much

    Margaret...glad the 2nd interview went well! I hate being up in the middle of the night feeling anxious. It's happened to me before where I get so nauseous and get stomach pains. I know the feeling of knowing you'd feel better if you'd just throw up. What I always do when I get like that in the middle of the night is get up and go out to the couch and turn on the TV. It serves as a distraction so I can at least fall alseep on the couch. Otherwise, I'll lay in bed and feel miserable. Anxiety stinks! Hope you are feeling better and were able to get some rest.

    I'm going to make monster cookie dough dip today. It looks so good. I'm sure I'm going to regret making it because by the looks of the reviews it's really good. I'm hoping it gets all gone at the party so I don't have any leftovers. Child mentioned...I'm also going to make Luna Lovegood's pudding since DD3 is Luna Lovegood. I'm not making "from scratch" pudding as the recipe calls for though. That's too much work when I can add some milk to a couple boxes of pudding.

    Hope everyone has a good weekend!

    I hate being up all night anxious. It happens to me every once in awhile. I get up and look at cool architecture designs or craft projects (that I will never have time for). I try not to read the news or anything too serious. Hope you are feeling better today.

    I was not anxious when I was awake last night, just so nauseous. I actually slept when I got home from the interview,

    (child ment) Robbie was up sick in the night so we both might be coming down with something. I POAS today, blue test (DH bought it), BFN.
