Sometimes my ranting gets raves

Sorry for being so cryptic yesterday, but I was updating from work and I had to be careful so as not to risk getting myself in trouble.

I'm in a much better mood now, thanks to a good night's sleep and some much needed seratonin boosting from a nice bowl of popcorn.

Its been a culmination of a lot of things. I am starting to really worry about Warren. He is showing a lot of the classic signs of bipolarnesss, the same signs I had around his age, maybe a bit older. Alernating from depair to granduer. Going days (so far only one or two) without sleeping or seeming to need sleep. The odd behavior, liking sneaking out his window at 11:00 on a school night and wondering why I might be upset, unable to fathom what he did that was so wrong. Than waking me up at 5 am, and wonderinng why I am so cranky after not having any sleep that night. That kind of stuff. I have appointment with both his councilor and pdoc, but its going to be a couple weeks before I can get in.

Mike is still being Mike. Still unable to understand how he brought all his trouble on himself ....

And then there is work..

Work where I had a review (bi-annual), where they praised me to the rafters, yet the actual paper review made me look like moron who can't tie her shoes and talk at the same time. I'm tired of being taken for granted, of being treated like an idiot, of not being showed anything yet being penalized for not knowing, of being told one thing and than expected to do another, of answering to somebody young enough to be my daughter were I so inclined to have been fooling around in high school, of having to do things I don't agree with and think sound totally stupid (one or two pleases in a converstation is polite, using it every sentence sounds just stupid and rote, like a bad Nickolodeon skit). I'm just tired.

I'm just fed up with corporate culture and the total supression of anything that hints at indivuality, of the treating of employees like office supplies (use 'em up, toss 'em out, and get some new ones), of rewards that don't mean anything and don't cost the company anything, but do get them a nice tax write off, of policies that seem to change weekly or monthy depending on what managments new fad du jour is,

I am just tired, and in need of venting. I'd say more, but if I don't get into the shower soon, I'm going to be late for my part in helping a very rich person get even richer, while I continue to make the same no matter what.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
