So I have this co-worker who spends all day whining, complaining, and asking stupid questions. She's my age but her maturity age is 2. I've talked about it at AA: this co-worker is driving me insane! I am filled with rage! They've given good advice: don't "use" anger. Anger is a drug. It can make you high, and then strung out. Ok, got it, I'll do my best to stay calm. Other good advice: turn the questions on her: "I don't know, do you think the lights are on?". Other: "Hmm...well the way that I deal with my six year old is I don't expect her to understand me unless I'm very clear. Say "I am serious. You need to ask the supervisor. I am serious. You need to listen to me when I tell you I'm busy and can't answer that question." She will not understand sarcasm or wit. She will not be able to read between the lines." Ok, so I'm trying that now and it seems to be working. It is just frustrating b/c I was really hoping I'd find a friend in her, and I can't lean on her at all. If I ever try to confide something in her, she just says "Oh my God, like, that totally sucks!" Then starts talking about her problems ("the handle on my gucci bag broke- wah!!!). Totally depressing. Work is hard when you have to deal with annoying co-workers.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
