I don’t know what I ever did to deserve all of this. I could take the two flat tires in the first three months of my new job, but then you really threw me for a loop with the whole rocker panel being ripped off of my passenger side while driving to an appointment. The flat tire last week was not funny either, but I guess you threw me a bone with it being patchable (unlike the first two). Yesterday must have been the icing on the cake of bad Karma. Someone breaking the enitre passenger side window and stealing around $500.00 worth of stuff from my car, not to mention taking my dignity, was just wayy over the line. My brother getting into a car accident, which subsequently pissed my parents off so much that they’ve decided to take us both off the auto insurance with only three days to plan for it- not okay.
And universe, just in case you weren’t aware, I work in HUMAN SERVICES. I can’t afford all of this bad luck anymore. I see children with problems every single day of my job and I try to go above and beyond what I can to help them. I can’t deal with it and I’m literally about to break. Who is supposed to help me?
Between all of the bad luck with my car, all of the problems with planning my wedding, and all of the bad blood with my parents- I really would like to know what the hell I did to warrant ANY OF THIS!!
PLEASE. STOP. NOW!!

Three flat tires? That’s just craziness. Good luck getting through everything and thank you very much for working with kids with problems. It’s not easy, yet someone has to do it. Thank you.

I think you should first, stop driving! 🙂
On a more serious note, I fully understand and empathize on how you are feeling about your job. I used to work in that field, too, and while it is one of the most satisfying carreer possible, it is also very much energy sucking…
When I started to plan for a family, I decided to change fields completely because working in human services would not allow me to give 100% of my energy to my own children and husband. I do not regret my choice, although I do miss working with those in need. I hope that you find a way to give what you have to give during your shift, then put down your social worker hat and go home without thinking about it and put on your Vanilla Frosting hat. Find support with your FH, friends and family.

Thanks for the love ladies
@egb- My job is actually one of the more satisfying of the human service jobs. I work in Early Intervention to provide services to families whose children have developmental delays, whether they be permanent or not. It’s just terrible that someone went into our county designated garage that’s supposed to be policed by parking guards and were able to break the windows of my car and 6 others on one level and then an additional 8 cars on another level.
BTW- Fi just called to inform me that his computer crashed this morning. He’s a realtor and his computer is his livlihood. Excellent.
Donations are now being taken to save Vanilla Frosting’s sanity. They will be accepted in the form of hugs, money, Rakki, massages, and wine!!
