    Oh sweetie, you're not wrong in this--why is this world so politically correct that we have to attend a party being thrown for someone we cant stand?? This woman can be attributed for alot of your life's anguish. Dont go hun, I sure as hell wouldn't
    Take care

    I'm stunned. I cannot believe how horrible this woman has been to you! If you went to her "Party" I'd be sorely dissappointed. This woman hasn't given you an ounce of respect.

    I would recommend you have your own "Party" in celebration of her departure.

    You've been through so much in you life! Just from the post I can tell you are a SURVIVOR. I applaud your ability to endure adversity and to strive for your goals.

    I have a BA in anthropology with emphasis in Medical Anthropology and I'm currently in Nursing school. You do this job because you love people right? You want to accept people for who they are and provide them the best care right? Don't forget to care for yourself too!

    You are amazing and I hate the fact that you have let this woman push you around.... Be proud of yourself, and tell your coworkers in a "nice way" that you have prior obligations and unfortunely can't make it to the party. You don't need to offer anything more...

    Congratulations on your new position! I still sticking to my original post/opinion -- I would not go to a party in her honor. No way. You've received many posts of varying opinions whether to go or not -- have you made a decision? Truly, wish you the best of luck with your new position -- you will be such a breath of fresh air.

    IT is always incredible to me how petty people can be. I am happily married and have been for 17+ years. Still crazy about the guy. This makes people insane-theylove when you are miserable and better if you fall on your face.

    You don't have to like everyone-that's the great thing about being 35 I have found.

    Don't go if you don't want to but instead of telling everyone early so they can" share their personal thoughts" or show up and leave early claiming menstral cramps or better yet, drink a bootle of epecac (sp?) and throw up on her!

    Truthfully, I would go but have another commitment waiting and apologize for your absence and be done with her. I live in a small town where rudeness is like Paul Revere screaming in the square so I do the show up, make an appearance thing and then go to my other commintment- you know watching the paint dry!
