Follow-up conversation

Conversation with my co-worker/employee this morning.
Goes something like this:

Me: How're you doing?
L: Alright, I suppose.
Me: It's not easy.
L: No.
My brother just told us his girlfriend is pregnant.
Me. Your brother? The one who embezelled money from your grandparents, dropped out of highschool and now works as a prison guard?
L: Yup.
Me: So unfair.
L: And I found out yesterday that my good friend S is pregnant.
Me: S? The hairdresser with the out-of-work boyfriend who she lives with in a damp basement apartment with no furniture?
L: Yup.
Me: Of course.
L: Figures
Me: Figures

Poor girl. I'm feeling so sorry for her. It's almost overshadowing how sorry I feel for myself.

Good to see you posting again, sweetie. I feel the opposite way about work. It is just so unimportant to me now.

Yuck, it's revolting the way we learn the 'world keeps turning' lesson thru IF.

Glad you're back and posting.

There is no rhyme nor reason, there is just a lot of shit to deal with.

I feel for you - I really do... I am year five in my "journey" and Ihave to say I feel, you feel you, feel you. I am having my one month miscarriage anniversary and I just have to say I am sorry you have to go through this.
