People that make you MAD

Anyone every want to snap at work? I am sure part of it is the meds but don't they understand what FMLA is I called in late today my boss says sick again kinda shot with me told her no I am in the middle of a back rub! Duh I mean really? I work almost 35 hours a week in stead of 40 and part of that time I dont want to be there because I am sick just when I thought they understood she makes a comment like that I wanted to scream at her today ( I didnt) but you would think after working some where 10 years and barley ever missing work except for vacation and when my mother died I be shown some compassion sorry for venting but sometimes it helps to let it out.  I still pray to God that none of them ever have a illness beacuse as up set as I am I don't wish this treatment and emotional roller coaster on anyone! Thanks for listening.  PS UNDETECTABLE keeps me going!

I wanted to call someone a not-so-nice name today. Pause, I also wanted to keep my job. Shut my mouth, WIDE, OPEN!
Before I started tx I thought of posting a note on my steering wheel, " remember to be nice to people". Hey, it's just part of the battle.

Hang in there and just do the best you can. My boyfriend struggled today at work. He just wanted to yell at everyone and all the customers got on his nerves and even one of our other employees. Guess this treatment really does work your nerves he's really struggled today, not a good day. The outside world just doesn't understand.

in about month 6, I did go psycho at a job I had just completed....this was my last Tx in 2006...these construction workers had climbed through a window and stomped all over a counter I had just cemented and was drying..I knew I could fix the counter but when I told them I had worked a week on it their response was kind of sarcastic....it was bad..I learned from the experience to not respond...those workers when they left the building nail gunned 2 of my tires...today I laugh about it...sorry people can't be more compassionate...the world is generally one big stressful deadline and it keeps folks in a state of worry...hope it gets better for you UND person!!!!

Ha thank you Brianmo yes it for sure is the meds and I need to remember that I told my my son geez when I was in the Urgent care some poor old man was turning the lid on a perscription bottle I wanted to yank it out of his hand LOL I got a grip I knew it was the meds funny how you pick up on the odd noises or the little things someone does-at work this girl must walk by my desk and go to the bathroom 9 times a day says hi or talks to me every time I want to tell her to go away but the funny thing is never noticed it before so these meds really make you in tune to things that other wise never would!

Oh Yes, the emotional roller coster ride.  My goodness, I was irritated so much. Did you ever see my post about being in a Dept store and a gal a few rows over was walking in heals??  It drove me to insanity, I had to do everything possible not to say to her what the heck are you wearing heals for???  I was fuming. Normally, I could care less, then, there is instance of a swimmer next to me at the pool who was getting in my lane, I called that one lane rage.  Hang in there and do  deep breathing, tell yourself its just me meds, just the meds....

I hid out during treatment and still had to apologize for my attitude. My son told me an email I sent him sounded passive aggressive and weird.
I replied, "yes, that's interferon treatment."

This is from the pegasys web site on side effects:
EGASYS therapy may cause you to develop mood or behavioral problems including:

    irritability (getting upset easily)
    depression (feeling low, feeling bad about yourself or feeling hopeless), and anxiety
    aggressive behavior

No me either Rog people dont understand that are well I know that but it sure has tauht m a lesson- I am going to donate sometime helping others that are sick when I am well.  I will give back and never be unaware of what someone is feeling when they are ill again.  I have never been a mean person but giving back and doing some volunteer work may change someone's life this forum is a blessing I cant even imagine the life's it has helped.

I totally get it.
It's a good thing I'm usually too tired to say the things I really think to people. I get irritable and I get sad, usually when I push myself and get a little overtired.

It is tough enough going through tx with people who understand.  I feel sorry for those who are ignorant and there are a lot of them. You really get dose of mortality when you are sick like this.  I remember being extremely annoyed at babies crying in public until I had my own. I was always cognizant of others with my crying babies and am appreciative of others reciprocity for me now.  I just smile as they struggle to hush and tell them its ok, life is grand.  I wouldn't wish this Hepc on anyone though.

UND!  Great news!  Congratulations!
Yes before I lost my job due to tx, I could not believe how hurtful people could be.  It was as if I had not been there for 23 years.  It was a nightmare.  I was so afraid of losing my job that I went even when I was so sick I could barely walk, sometimes on crutches, in the end I lost my job anyway because I could not tell them when I would be better
I have to admit I did get much more sensitive on tx.  I misunderstood people and they misunderstood me.  I am sorry you are going through this.
