I've had issues with anxiety and hypochondria but this is far worse. I was at my parents' house last night but he apparently went to the ER and told the docs about his concerns. They told him what the two or three other doctors already did: you are suffering from anxiety, not ALS or any other motor neuron disease. But it's just not clicking with him, and the Xanax and Abilify don't seem to be doing the trick. At this point my patience is gone and I've been very terse and harsh. Just can't take it anymore.
2.) He has been asking to use my car with greater frequency. It used to be once or twice a month, which is fine. Occasionally he considers getting his own ride but always backs off due to cost and the fact that his credit is terrible. I really don't know how he does it, this is a totally car-dependent area. Our neighborhood is very walkable, luckily, but you just can't leave the 'hood without a car.
3.) Always asks to eat whatever leftovers I have in the fridge. I cook in fairly large batches so that I have leftovers for lunch and/or dinner the next day. He knows this, yet will still ask. Tonight I flat-out said, "Nope, that's my food for tomorrow." Can't recall the last time I saw him cook anything.
Not a bad guy but this woe-is-me malaise of his is driving me crazy. Looking forward to getting a 1BR next year.
Ill trade roommates in a heart beat. We usually go to this really authentic mexican place for burritos sunday nights...4 oclock rolls around and he locks himself in his room...i knock on his door at 630 which is when we usually go. No answer. Im like w/e im watching green bay 49ers game i can wait till its over. 8 rolls along...he finally comes out of his room. We going to el pelon? Nah im not hungry.
Then he goes in the kitchen and takes the trash out of the container and puts a new bag in there but doesnt actually toss it out. Now I always bring the trash to the dumpster but I was away most this week and it is pretty much all his so I want to see if he will do it himself...looks like I have my answer.
As I cleaned my place this morning he sat in bed not helping...
I was stung by a be last week and part of the stinger was still in there and I didnt notice...it started getting swollen friday so I started taking bendrly and between that and a few beers I was pretty tired and went to bed early. He came back from being out last night busted open my door waking me up but I pretended I was asleep because I didnt want to deal with his BS.
Oh and he hasnt showered today...that if anything else bugs me the most because I am a very clean person and he well...isnt and smells. I am thinking about getting those glade plug ins or something. It bothered me in college but its bothering me more now.
I installed ms office on my pc so I could update my resume and write a few cover letters...I just dont know what to say in them. But I got an email from the company to apply a few weeks ago. The only reason I havent acted with a ton of urgency is this is entry level for students graduating next spring so they will probably accept applications through september...well I graduated in 11 but this is pretty much what I want to do.
