Does it look like a six year old painted them? I’m pretty sure it does. Ha ha. I decided to paint my nails in a desperate bid for self care, and in the spirit of Halloween, I chose bright red (the bottle in the pic is top coat). It’s like the hardest color for me … Continue reading And they’re red!
This is really old art from a long time ago, but I kind of relate. I just feel like I hovering under the line of “normal” and it’s exhausting. It’s like this low-grade depression that I’ve been living with for years. I get tired of it. It makes me cranky. I thought maybe we had … Continue reading Under the line
It’s kind of like an adventure. I never know if I’m going to be able to get everything on my list. Shortages are a real issue, especially with meat and other things, so it’s a hassle to try and get specific things. Of course my mom has a list with specific things on it. I’m … Continue reading Going to the grocery store
I am the proverbial “ditz with a credit card.” I see things and I want them so I buy them. In fairness, my limit is very low on purpose so I can’t get into too much trouble, and I can cover the balance, but I have to cut into saved money to do it, and … Continue reading Stupid credit card
I’m so tired. Not sleepy tired, just bone tired. Pretty sure it is from the prednisone. I feel exhausted. I don’t think I’m making it to anything else today. Mom wants me to go to the store, but we agreed I could go in the morning. I don’t think I can go right now. I … Continue reading And… hit my wall
I went to breakfast with a friend this morning and she is sleeping right now like I should be. I am toast from the steroids they have me on from this allergic reaction, or from the reaction itself, not sure which. Anyway, I can’t sleep so I’m kind of planning out my day. Another friend … Continue reading Full of possibilities…
Every cloud has a silver lining, right? A couple of things: First, I had to meet with my professor today about the incomplete. It was this morning before I had found the steroids to take and I looked very rough. He didn’t ask any questions about what health condition(s) had led to me asking for … Continue reading Silver lining…
My whole face is swollen up. I got into something I am allergic to, but I don’t know what it is. I’m allergic to Benadryl and most “allergy” meds, so I can’t use those to help. I really need some steroids, but I sat in the ER waiting room for 4 hours hacking my head … Continue reading When allergies attack!
While I don’t feel as terrible as I did on Tuesday, I am still really grateful that I get to see my therapist today. I am still struggling with anxiety a lot and reeling a little from my visit to the emergency room. I talked to a friend today though, and talking to her reminded … Continue reading Whew. Therapy day.
I’m still physically tired I think, even though my brain is very busy. I’m very anxious. It just won’t let up. My brain is racing at a billion miles per hour over a zillion things. I felt so bad about my interaction with the crisis worker that I left a message for her today apologizing … Continue reading Unrelenting anxiety
