Sometimes you run into doctors who just don't click - when my daughter was in the hospital for a blood disorder the doctor on call who took her case was so off-putting that when we were given the name of someone else who had looked at the case I called there and asked to follow-up with them. The appointment manager said we needed to stick with the first doctor, and I told her we weren't going to have anything to do with him any more, his bedside manner stunk and he was a jerk. That was enough to get us in with a much more helpful doctor.
Family medical leave is so important - I have a friend who was fired for missing work because at the time a family crisis erupted he didn't have time to fill out all of the paperwork.
I just finished disassembling a lovely CD changer and discovered it isn't repairable - the weak point in the system is the circuit board behind the control panel and the past users pushed one button so hard they cracked the board and the circuits are broken. Too bad. Back to Goodwill it goes. CD changers used to be commonplace but they're not around as much now and those that are new are very expensive. Now to go take apart my vacuum cleaner and remove what is probably a blockage near the bottom of the hose.
To those who lurk, reading the thread but not posting, good luck with your work. You're invited to share, we love to hear about how you're doing, though participation here isn't necessary.
