Does anyone else have kids who are grown/almost grown? I have been steamrolled by intense anxiety ...
HippieChick58 comments on Apr 5, 2018:
I love, love, love having adult kids!! My kids are wonderful adults, caring, liberal, smart, responsible, and everything that adults should be. Two of three are parents, so they made me a grammy. Well, second grandchild isn't here quite yet, another month maybe. But no, I don't miss the teen years, the dependency, the hormones. They're so smart now and we have such good conversations. I loved the babies, and the child stage. Those teenage years.... And the best part is they tell me often what a good job I did and how proud they are of me. It helps that they're all within 20 miles of where I live.
Teen Age Sex, the worst outcome!
HippieChick58 comments on Apr 5, 2018:
I put my girls on bcp after their periods started, partly because they had painful periods. We also discussed how babies are made. They were also restricted to dating boys in their grade so the maturity issue did not cause problems. My oldest skirted the dating restriction by dating guys she worked with that were older. But she was smarter than they were and was able to see through their BS. She did get her heart broken. The second got in trouble in other ways. The youngest seemed to pick nice guys,and in her grade. She kinda glossed over the babies talk, and her dad caught her and her guy friend in a slightly alarming situation. He asked me to have a talk with her. I asked her what she would call stupid teenagers who got carried away. She answered she'd just call them stupid teenagers. I told her most would likely call them parents. It was soooo cool to watch the light dawn in her eyes, really like seeing the snyapses connecting. She gave me my first grandchild at 25, the oldest will give me my second grandchild next month, and she's 33.

HippieChick58 comments on Apr 4, 2018:
The first time I realized I was depressed I was in Germany, 409th ASA company. I didn't need to be diagnosed, I just realized I was very not happy. Sometime after that I did see a counselor. And off an on through my life I've had periods of depression/anxiety. I've been medicated a few times.

What do you normally eat for lunch?
HippieChick58 comments on Apr 4, 2018:
I eat seasonal. During the winter (non garden months) I make and freeze casseroles in individual portions, usually vegetarian and grab one to heat for lunch every day. I may also take veggies and hummus. Or I take leftovers, especially the day after I have my kids over for dinner, if they leave any left overs. During the summer I eat salads from the veggies grown in my garden, and some from the farmer's market. Again, mostly vegetarian. I snack on mixed nuts at work. I like to eat cheap and healthy.

check with your HR department, they may have resources to help you train for another job within your organization, especially a medical establishment frequently has need of translators. If you have short term disability coverage some carriers have vocational staff that can help you explore options for employment you may be capable of. Good luck!!
Do you grow food

Anyone have some Low Carb High Fat experiences? Well, I've not been great at the application of...
HippieChick58 comments on Apr 3, 2018:
Generally I try to limit sugars to less than 50 grams a day and limit simple carbs as well. I eat high fat because that is where satiety comes from. When I keep to this way of eating I can lose weight, lost over 50 pounds 2 years ago. Then I changed jobs, they keep feeding us, and the stress level is huge. I'm getting it back under control, but it is a struggle. Generally I eat less meat. I eat seafood, dairy and eggs when I do want animal protein. I eat mostly vegetable protein, lots of veggies, some fruits, and very low sugars. I did Atkins several years ago which worked great, and then I started traveling for my job. I think I've tried most diets.

I am guilty of several, especially sharing my opinion. I am really good at admitting I was wrong, and sometimes appologies don't come in a timely manner. I try to have a life and gotta work. And I've tasted shoe leather a few times. But this site is for sharing opinions. No one should be dismissive or disrespectful when you ask a question. I try to keep it all in perspective. No one will remember next week.

RACISM & MISOGYNY Maybe we shouldn't be ignoring the racism and sexism on this site. Still not ...
HippieChick58 comments on Apr 2, 2018:
Although it is a PITA, I think you need to confront the offenders, we all do. Explain why that is racist/sexist. Too often it continues to happen because no one mentions it. They take the path of least resistance. I know, it is easier to let it slide or block, but if the offender is told often enough that they are offensive, hopefully they will hear it and make changes. And the cool thing is how others on the site will back you up. I love the support. Of course the offender is off in his own little worlds, but one can hope a little crack will be made.
What's the best bit of advice you've ever been given?
HippieChick58 comments on Apr 2, 2018:
50% of all doctors graduated in the bottom half of their class. Remember to breathe. It is nice to be important, but it is more important to be nice. And if you can't say something nice you probably really shouldn't say anything. And the most important one: Pick your battles.

What character traits indicate someone is a "good" person?
HippieChick58 comments on Apr 1, 2018:
How does the person in question treat those who serve him or her? Are they patient and friendly with the wait staff, the grocery store checker, etc? Are they patient with the small snafus of life? Can they untangle a mess of christmas tree lights without cursing? Do they like dogs, cats, and small children? How do they treat those who are differently abled? Those are some of the things I look for.

How do you feel about the person you're dating talking about their ex?
HippieChick58 comments on Apr 1, 2018:
It depends on how much they talk about them and HOW they talk about them. If there is a huge amount of unresolved anger, or disrespect then it is a red flag. I talk about my ex because I still see him fairly frequently, the kids like to do family birthdays and holidays. We're amicable. I am not angry with him, I am pretty indifferent, I think. We spent 25 years together and have kids and grandkids, we are linked whether we like it or not.

HippieChick58 comments on Apr 1, 2018:
I don't want someone who needs to be joined at the hip with me. There are many things I do that are very solo activities. My sewing room is set up for one, for example. So I have my activities I want him to have his activites and interests. But the "big" stuff, politically, religion or lack there of, other values we should share. We need to have some interests and activities in common or otherwise why be together. If he is a social butterfly that would be great, because that would balance my hermit tendencies as long as we are respectful of each others needs. I don't want a male carbon copy of me, I want someone who fills in my deficits and adds a new dimension to me/for me and I to him.
