"him" is not an ex-lover

Sunday, Sept. 10, 2006
I'm up late watching scary movies with my son. I just checked my email and I got an odd email. I suspect who sent it, but alas....it doesn't matter. I thought only dooce got this sort of mail. The previous entry about vitamins and supplements and dietary changes have nothing to do with "feeling better' because I do not feel poorly. They have to do with being truly healthier. I need nothing to make me "feel better" because my life is great right now. It's actually a pisspoor time for me to face health issues when my peronal life, work life, school life, and my relationship with my son are going great. I mean why now? But I cannot focus in on feeing sorry for myself because that gets a person nowhere. I am instead trying to make some changes to take better care of my health and my body. I have decided upon a proper diet and excercise, etc. I am simply addressing the problem from all angels.

It appears that this person see's it differently...and that's ok. Interpretation is an artform.

You seem awfully concerned about medicines and things to make you
feel better. Especially those recommended by a man you used to love.

You might want to be careful. When you seek out ex-lovers it can
appear that you're trying to find something you're not getting from
your current relationship.

I'm just expressing a different opinion.

You put things out on the internet after all.

It is very important for me, a reader, to tell you how you're living
your life.

Right?

My response:

Him is not an ex-lover. Him and I have never met each other. He owns a medical supply company and provides urological supplies, etc. to people every single day. Which means he fills out medical forms etc. every single day. He also owns a storefront vitamin store and knows all about vitamins and herbal supplements as he deals with them constantly.

I am awfully concerned about my health, yes. I've always taken vitamins, I'm just adding a few things and changing a few things to improve my female related health as it is a concern.

I'm grateful that I can pay for my vitamins and health, and do not have to rely on other people to donate monies to my charitable cause? I'm glad I have a job where I have insurance and do not have to rely upon anyone else to cover those expenses for me. That added stress would not be good for my overall health whatsoever. I consider myself very fortunate that I can adequately address my health concerns.

My current relationship is more than a relationship. It is a marriage. A marriage that is very healthy and happy. A marriage where my husband allows me to have friendships with other people, especially those that are a good influence on my mental as well as physical well being. He knows that I love him and does not feel threatened by a conversation about vitamins and supplements and health concerns with a long time friend.

Thanks Jenny, but next time include some advice? Thanks for your opinion. I would love some constructive feedback.
