Sometimes we just need a place to facepalm, headdesk, or scream into a pillow. This thread is the place to do so. Please remember that all Geeking Shack Rules apply here.

"Hey wanna make dinner tonight for all three of us?"  "YEAH MAN!"  So I go out and buy all the stuff and wait a little while because I don't know when you'll be home and then finally I decide to start cooking so that we're not eating too late.  Except when I'm almost done cooking, I get a text saying that you guys aren't all that hungry and that you'll just reheat it later.  Ouch.

I guess you'd rather rant for three minutes about a problem than take three seconds to train me how to fix it, but that's your perogative. I refuse to stress over it just cause you are. >.>

So, I work in a hospital pharmacy. I constantly take calls from nurses and physicians and random people that got connected wrong. I've got the same answering spill every time. "Good (time of day). Pharmacy. This is Angela". All day. In the best fake, chippy voice I can muster.

I literally answer the phone in the sweetest, most obnoxious voice ever. But, besides that, I truly am nice.

I cannot stand when my spill is greeting with "I need....".

Hello. We work in a hospital. Identify yourself. You don't have to wish me good morning, evening or Merry Christmas. But tell me who you are and where the heck you are calling from.

I have absolutely freakin' had it!  How high school are you with your clique?  Well, my life is entirely complete without you.  From now on, if you want something from me, you'll have to go out of your way and make the first move.

This year has been both the happiest and worst year of my life.

It didn't really hit me until a few days ago when my fiance decided to end it. Not just end the engagement, but to break us up. It happened almost exactly six months after we got engaged back in June. This was not that long after my family suddenly lost one of our sweet kitties to cancer. We have not shared this news with anyone except our respective close family, but I do feel kind of bad that no one else who has been so happy for us knows yet. After I let my grandmother (who is down in Florida for the holidays) know, I was planning on making it Facebook official to keep people from being in the dark for too long... but apparently, his mom thinks we should wait until after Christmas. So I'm kind of stuck and needed a quick place to just write it out while I grieve.

He says that it is all on him. He says that he is afraid that he doesn't love me enough because he hasn't felt the "butterflies" for a while. He has told me since day one that our love is different and that he loves that about us. He says he doesn't want to hurt me later on by "not caring," and perhaps doing something that he isn't even sure of. So he wants to take this time to figure himself out. He is very used to handling his problems on his own, and I feel like a lot has happened in a short period and this all he think of to do right now.

I've told him many things that I have thought have brought him to do this so suddenly: depression and a fear of disappointing others. He has had a lot of awful things happen to him over the years, starting with his father's sudden death 13 years ago. I don't think he ever dealt with that properly, as he has always taken care of his mom through that period, leading him to always take care of other people before himself. Then she encouraged him to start thinking about proposing to me ever since we started dating; she even took him to the ring store to start the process 2 years ago. He didn't even care for the final product, but everyone else told him I would love it so he went with it. He told me that after we got engaged. I didn't think twice about it, but once he started to push me away and I was feeling the pressure myself from his family about having kids next... I have a feeling that was part of it. He isn't ready for it and it wasn't on his terms: something I told him from the beginning was how I wanted things to be. And I made sure to reinforce that when this came up.

He takes total blame for it, and I feel awful hearing that even though it is true. He tells me that I did nothing wrong and that I have been amazing to him since the beginning. It's why he doesn't want to hurt me later. We're best friends, and even though I am hurting so much right now I have given into this losing battle I was fighting. Not completely giving in because that's impossible right now, but enough to start grieving. I love him so much, which is why I have to stop fighting. If this is what HE wants to do, I am going to let him do what he thinks he needs; I have always said I would never hold him back from what he wanted. I told him how it makes me feel, and he is sorry for it. I even told him how I blame his mother a bit more this. I think he didn't want to disappoint her by not being ready just yet, so this was the next best thing to do. She has put pressure on him thinking that she is doing it for him just as much as she is doing it for herself. He didn't disagree with that. Or anything I had to say for that matter.

I can't do anything right now. I have to take care of me, which is the hardest part. Even though I don't think he believes it, he took so much more care of me than I think I ever did for him. I have lost a major support system I didn't think I would be missing, especially during the hardest part of my internship. I gave him the Christmas gift I had gotten him because it had just gotten there when he left to stay with his parents for a few days. He said that I will be getting mine when it comes, an updated version of one of my school books, because he wants me to continue and achieve my dream.

So far, this feels like one of the hardest things I have had to deal with. It is a bit better now that we have made it official between us, but still tough. I miss him a lot, and the four kitties we got together. I have made a slow process of getting my stuff, and he isn't rushing me to go. The even harder part will be sucking it up to go back to work and to life where the questions about the wedding and even the truth will start to come. But for some reason, the fact that we can be amicable with one another is helpful and yet not. It's not the same, and it most likely will never be. We may still be able to be friends, but who knows. Who knows what the future will hold.

I am angry at him. I feel a sadness that fills my empty stomach, and my eyes water when I'm out in public. Above all, I do not hate him for doing this to me. I can't. Not yet. I think he is dealing with enough, suffering from something that he can't describe and has nothing to do with us. There is still that hope that he will get help and in the process of turning himself around, he'll realize that I am the one for him. I think that that feeling will be there for a bit, unfortunately, making it even harder for me to move on. But I have to. Even though I miss him and I feel like he's making a mistake. He needs to do his own thing, which I will admit I am proud that he is finally doing something for himself. And I really do want the very best for him. I want him to be happy.

So yeah. I had to dump this somewhere. I hope this is the right place. And I hope this makes me feel a bit better.

Update: It's been at least 6 months. The gist of what I eventually found out happened was that he left me to be with someone else. Go figure.

For a moment, I thought I was beginning to become myself again, regaining my happiness and hope. I thought for a second that I found someone I could start anew with, to be complete with. But now... apparently that's not in the cards for me yet.

I let myself get my hopes up every time. And every time that's a bad thing to do because in the end, it feels like I'm not one who gets to be happy.

So far, 2018 has been the year from hell.

"I want my daughter to be smart, so I bought her..." some educational tool.

No.  If you bought something, you want her to be educated.  You can't buy smart.  (Yet.)  There's a difference.

I'm tired of being strong. I just want to be happy again.

I would have been getting married this coming Wednesday. He got married two weeks ago. And here I am, still alone.

The straw broke the camel's back today. I'm at my desk at work, crying to myself after someone who has irked me for a while made a comment to my coworker about me not owning up to something we're not even sure is my fault. I didn't mean to come off as getting worked up, but telling someone to "calm down" doesn't make the situation better.

I don't even think I'm really that bothered by what she said. I think I'm just scared and sad from the past few weeks. I know it's silly to be this worked up over a missing cat, but every morning I wake up feeling like I've failed him. All I can do is try to look when I can and wait with my traps, but the waiting kills me. I just want him home and safe, and to stop feeling like it's all my fault that he got out. I think of the worst happening and how it could have been so easily prevented and it overwhelms me. I just want him home.

It is not silly to get that worked up over a missing cat!  I remember when my idiot stepbrat left a door open, and one of the cats got out.  He turned up at the humane society after three weeks, but while he was gone, I was practically in mourning.  He, not the stepbrat, was the kid I chose.  I hope your cat story has a happy ending, too.
