    Dear....isn't there somewhere else he can get a battery?? Calm down, and get out and get an ice cream sundae, and indulge yourself. Close your door, turn off the phone...and just take some quiet moments to yourself. Or better yet...take a slow walk...and just watch the people go by. Please don't let this upset you. I realize things seem to pile up, and up. But time to take it slow...take a deep cleansing breath, and enjoy your surroundings.

    When things get too much for me...I just shut everything out. Sometimes I put on a Gospel CD, and work out my aggessions on my treadmill. Exercise is an excellent stress reliever. I hope this helps...

    I feel so bad for you. If it's not one thing, it's another. You HAVE to learn to calm down. Go to KMart and buy a battery if you can't wait for Sears to open.

    Sorry for the tone of this thread. It's just so frustrating sometimes. I try to d othe right thing,but it never seems like it's enough. Maybe I should become a truck driver........ Warrior Woman.

    Nah.... you should just buy a new battery tomorrow. Walmart will be open. They'll even put it in for ya while you go inside and get a slurpee. Nursing school is stressful, and so are all of the other things you've been going through. You gotta pick what you're gonna let bring you down. Save the coping mechanisms for the serious stuff

    Theresa..you can only do the best you can do, and this is all you can do. And why a truck driver...???:chuckle Driving really fustrates me...and all the bad weather, traffic jams...flat tires, watching out for speed traps...naaaaaaw stick to nursing. At best it's only for 8-12, 15hrs at the most...a day...:chuckle

    Most auto stores are open on sunday, Advance Auto will even put it in free, Sears will be open, Walmart. Let him deal with his problem and you rest, unplug your phone,and lock the doors.

    My advice exactly!!! Right on, BadBird!

    Today.....Hubby and I did just that: We did NOT answer the freakin' phone that kept ringing and ringing off the hook, so we finally set it to ring twice only, then let the machine pick up. We listened to rest and relaxation music most of the day as we rested. When we got up, we went to dinner at Chilis. We would NOT have answered the doorbell had it rang since TODAY AND TOMORROW are all about US.....and we don't care who does NOT like it.

    Theresa.....you have to start calling the shots for your own life. Your father is a grown man........actually, if you come to think of it, he's been GROWN for a looooooonggg time.......long before you were even born to your parents. How about that! Amazing, huh?

    Why don't you consider moving out on your own for a change? You need your own privacy, and your parents need their privacy, too. That should make you more independent of them, and them of you. Have you ever lived on your own before? :kiss

    I think nurses are jusst too used to putting everyone else first, you need to sit back, take a breath and PRIORITSE just like you would a t work. Who is in the most need of your help?! Not to mention energy, I think it might just be you, ya think???!!! Tell your father to go get his own bleeding battery! isn't it a man thing anyway???
    My advice is to go and get all the holiday pay you can get your hands on and book some time at a spa!!!! Get pampered, even if you can only have a day, never underestimate the power of a good massage and facial!:kiss

    Hi Warrior Women,
    You might try a Advance Auto or something along those lines to get a battery, the ones in VA are open on Sunday from about 11am-5pm or 6pm or good old trusty Wal - Mart. Wal-Mart always has everything.
    Take a couple deep breaths in and out .
