Best. Readers. Ever.

I have the best readers on any blog, ever. No exaggeration. I don't have enough good things to say about all of the support and wisdom I received on my last post.

Thankfully, coworker A wasn't working today so any fantasies about squashing her like a bug (or at least giving her a good bitch slapping) remained fantasies. As my friend Melissa told me, I'm not going to let her rent space in my head. In the end, it's fairly irrelevant what she thinks of me. It doesn't change what I need to do in recovery. I don't think I'm going to bring it up with her because I don't think it's worth it. If it happens again, I definitely will give her a piece of my mind.

Thanks again. You are the best.

Carrie, I think what your co-worker said was absolutely rude and immature. Though logically, I would have understood this, still the words would have upset me.

I'm glad that you are not letting her rent space in your head. That's a great step in recovery. I definitely agree that if this happens again, she deserve a piece of your mind.

As for the meantime, I like the virtual fly-swatter idea!

Exactly - eviction, fly-swatting...and remembering that your readers think you're great!

You are such an inspiration Carrie. Keep up the amazing work; you make me unafraid to push myself. Thank you.

Swat away with the virtual fly-swatter I say!

Thanks for sharing yourself with us on your blog - I'm a reader who thinks you are great.

I think YOU are great. You are working so hard, I'm glad you are not letting this derail you and that you are evicting this person from your head. It's not worth it.

Finding your voice when people behave like asshats is very hard, but does wind up feeling very good, IMO.
