Wait, what? That makes no sense. Either Furley is from Wisconsin and pro O&H or i've been fished. I'm leaning the latter because any respectable human that has even stepped foot in Wisconsin knows O&H >>>>>>>>>>>

I had a bit of a health scare a few weeks ago. Spent the night in the ER with chest pains, arm numbness etc. I was really scared.

Had a good follow up with my primary doc and then an echo cardiogram on Wednesday. Got the message yesterday that there's no issue with heart function. 

It's been a while since I've had a good cry. That was a good one. Pay attention to your body, peeps. :grad:

stress?

was it the realization that Uncle Mike's is the king of kringle?

Stress/anxiety is pretty much the culprit. But then I stuck my #### in the freezer and coldcocked uncle Mike. Guy has to eat from a straw now

They're calling it a panic/anxiety attack. I'm sure it was something more. They ran the gamut of tests so I trust them. If I die then we know where to start

Welcome, hope you enjoy(ed) your visit.  If you like beer and hipsters, Bend is for you. :D 

Actually Bend is a pretty great town with lots of good people.  The infrastructure is the pits and won't get better soon, but that is about the only negative.

I sure hope somebody talks me out of retiring in Vegas. Probably won't, because the Bad-Decision Force is strong with this one.

Its usually a woman's disorder, but you symptoms fit it perfectly. I had one once about 20 years ago while I was driving. Scared the #### out of me and the drivers in the other lanes.

Why don't you buy a poker a machine and hire some sleazy ladies with too much makeup to bring you weak drinks. Then you could just stay in Austin.

Also, I'm not sure about Austin, but ROund Rock has some bars that are virtually casinos.

I looked at retiring there, but is too ###### far from anywhere and they don't have a train.

Flying in and out of here is a b, that is for sure.  Usually have to fly out way too early and get home way too late.

11yo (12 tomorrow) Floppinho went through a rite of passage today at tennis class- while crossing into the next court retrieving a ball, got unexpectedly drilled in the cajones by a serve. That'll learn him to go through puberty.

I'm a red blooded, blue collar Midwestern guy. They teach us to be men and that feelings are for the queers. 

I'm sorry but that mindset is bull####. I'm glad I listened to my body and if I cried a thousand tears Saturday morning when I read that message I'm ok with it. 

I golfed with my 78 year old dad this morning  I played with my kids this afternoon. My wife is in Vegas doing her thing. 

I've got it pretty good. Just need to find a new job, eat better, stop drinking.......all the fun stuff

To be fair, that wasn't a slight against the gay community in any way. That was simply a term to express a point. Sorry Joe if that's against the TOS but I'll take the TO if that's warranted.

in your defense, what you said about feelings is exactly what the dad of every every guy i know said to his kid

definitely a midwest thing to hear. didn't even register on my radar until i re-read after this post.

Gonna heat up some leftover linguine with clam sauce in the office cafeteria in a few minutes 

i think that’s acceptable from a smelliness standpoint right?

I need some advice from the lawyerly folks  in this thread.  Two  years ago my son was in an accident (not his fault) and was banged up. I negotiated  a 4K settlement for pain, suffering, out of pocket expenses etc.  

My health insurance (Anthem) just contacted me and said they have first priority rights for subrogation  and they want to recover the medical payments they made. 

Is there anyway I can get out of paying them? It’s not a ton of money but it’s the principal that they don’t deserve a dime of it.   Chances are they already were reimbursed by Geico and are looking to double dip.

TLDR: insurance companies suck and berndog wants to keep his money

No way to know without seeing what you signed when you got the 4K

The release with Geico essentially says the payment is final settlement and indemnifies them from any future claim. 

My health insurance policy has a section that says if the insured receives a payment as a result of injury the insured agrees to reimburse the plan. 

Im guessing I’m screwed but I  would like to at least make them work for it as the money he received wasn’t for any medical expenses.

I read that first part as “lingerie” and it just spiraled from there....

I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired.

work has had me wrapped up in knots. stinks. I'm stressing the #### out with two projects both at the same phase (I usually am working in different phases with different projects) which has me buried in a mountain of submittals, shopdrawings, stuff that I need to turn around immediately while also designing #### because the interior designers who are supposedly leading the projects have done #### all. hoping that I'll have dug myself out in a month or two.

haven't been a good dad/husband/friend/i-friend. finding people reacting to me as if I'm pissed off... which I am a lot lately... but even when I'm not. 

going to the shore for a week in two weeks with the family and my mom. hoping not to be a total dick while trying to decompress and ignoring the mountain of stuff that isn't getting done.

whiney rant, fin.

part of the stress, yes. 

I'm buried and boss is being pissy (in spite of saying he thinks I'm doing a good job) and adding to the workload because he won't find the time to sit down and review stuff even though he's incredibly micro-managey. got into an argument with him in front of contractors because he was changing stuff up on the job site... stuff that I'd been trying to get him to look at for a month+... and any changes at this point adds even more work (work I hadn't scheduled) on my table. but it's his company, so not really my place to argue... and I usually don't- but was just feeling on edge because of all this. 

but yes- you're right. silver linings etc. just need to keep trying to see them... and be less of a #### to those around me in the process. not sure what I was trying to say in the previous post, but I think that's about the sum of it.

eta: I'm still at the office and will be doing this pretty much every night until our trip to the shore.

yeah, it seems like you aren't very happy right now.  

silver lining:  you have a job that doesn't pinch your life, your lifestyle, etc.  You have time to figure it out - and pursue something else ...or figure out you are where you want to be.  That ain't bad broham.  :)

Hey @El Floppo - you were a great great father with all that music stuff lately. Plus, you were a great i-friend when you shared it with us.

Mark those things down as success!

I am sure I am missing most of the other great things you do - but - I only see a little. 

Keep the chin up = you are doing much much better than you are giving yourself credit for.
