Seriously Depressed or Majorly Overwhelmed?

Sad, sure.  Depressed, I don’t know.

Overwhelmed, absolutely.

Someone told me today I looked like I was both.  I must really look like shit! :{  She was trying to be honest.  I wasn’t asking for her opinion or any comments at all but she’s one who has experienced loss and someone who I have been relatively open with, so I let her talk.  I responded in a manner similar to how I started off this post.  My loss is devastating.  My daughter asks all the time when is Mommy coming home.  That’s TOUGH … IMPOSSIBLE!  But I don’t see myself as being seriously depressed, just sad.  Wouldn’t you be if you lost your best friend and so much more???Overwhelmed, however, Yes!  Regardless of the amount of help that is or isn’t around me, nothing is there to truly fill this gaping hole.

On an entirely different note … entirely!  My boss’s boss was fired yesterday.  Wow!  Relieved of his duties, Fired, Canned, however you want to describe it.  The media definitely had their way with words.  Going to the extent of saying he had to be escorted out of the building (that wouldn’t surprise me actually).  When someone with the title of Director is let go I’m sure it’s something serious.  Cari would have loved that news.  I bitched to her plenty of times about this guy.  He was a pain in the ass to work with/for but he knew the business, was passionate about it, and pretty damn good at what he did.  The organization now has to somehow fill the hole THEY created.  They’ve done this before elsewhere in the organization.  An organization is not going to succeed if they fire or let go of their most talented people.  It’s a pretty public company and he’s a pretty public figure.  The comments to the stories online all blast the organization for what they did and what they’re continuing to do.  I knew he would leave eventually.  Move into a higher up position.  But I was pretty amazed it happened like this.  I actually heard about it on the AM news this morning as I drove into the office.  Nevertheless, Cari and I would have been talking about this all day.  What this means for me and my career …. ????  Things are definitely going to change!
