OK, I feel very angry and easily-agitated today, which isn't usually like me (not anymore anyway)... I don't know what's causing it.. I'm actually not in a whole lot of pain, I'm gimping around because my left knee is very weak and won't allow me to walk very well, BUT I'm not in a whole lot of pain, just achy... which I will take any day over severe shooting and stabbing pains... so what am I getting so annoyed and angry about?!
My mind feels like it's somewhere else, worse than usual, I can't even do simple things.. I tried to join another forum, in addiction to this one (for something else besides Fibro) and I screwed something up majorly on it and got angry so decided I'm never going on that site again.. and then discovered you can't delete your posts on it, which I felt I needed to delete it because it was in the wrong place and everything... and my OCD is telling me "you can't leave something like that! it's IMPERFECT!"
And my friend keeps texting me back and forth, and I'm even having trouble following it!! I'll read a text and realize that I must've missed one or two of them before that because the one I'm reading now doesn't make any sense! What is going on with me? I can't follow simple directions or text msgs or anything! And my anger/frustration is out of hand. Does anyone else ever get angry and don't know where it comes from??
I woke up this morning thinking this would be a good day... now I don't know what is wrong with me.
Please tell me everyone else is doing okay today??

((( Jenna )))) sorry your having a bad day.
I started out kind of "off" today but it seemed to get a little better when the snow stopped and I got out of the house for a little while.
Hope your day gets better!!

I'm actually feeling pretty good today.. I'm sorry your day has started off so bad.

Take a deep breath, I always try and slow my thoughts when they're racing. Try going for a walk, try and distract yourself. I hope things get better...

Jenna I'm sending you big (((HUGS)))...I'm coming over and I bring some snacks and we'll watch Interview with a Vampire! :-) What ya say?

It is nice and bright and sunny today with temps at about 72. But, the air is pretty dry which is wreeking havoc on my sinuses. I am actually feeling quite well today and that might be partly due to not much work going on here at work. I can relate to your frustration. I have many a moments that I want to smack myself for doing something that ISN"T difficult and make it difficult for myself. I guess I stress to easy, but my job can really get crazy and stressful. I've been doing this job for 8 years so leaving it yet is not in the cards. But since I've acquired FM I have been trying to figure out what I am to do day to day.(there goes the worrier in me...) Anyways, take it easy, maybe take a break instead of freakin' out on your puter. :-)

Take Care,
Have a better rest of the day.....uh, oh, phone call...gotta go...

I'm sorry you're having a bad day!

Me, I'm exhausted I wrote 2 and a hlaf essays last night. Plus going to class and trying to wrangle my animals. I'm just trying to make it through the next week and a half, then things settle down.

I know how your OCD feels. I thankfully have just gotten too tired to deal with it. I often walk into the kitchen to get some water and end up completely cleaning it, doing a load of dishes and laundry!

Hopefully you feel better!

Jenna I'm sure by now you [hopefully] have left that funk behind. I do understand what you were describing, too. When this happens to me, believe it or not its a sure bet my blood sugar is wonky. Usually what it takes is a small glass of milk, a handful of dry cereal, something that balances protein and carbs. So I grab this snack and find a place where I can sit and either hear music or feel a breeze, or even in this frigid weather, watch the world happen from a window. It usually doesn't take more than 15 mins and I am feeling better. Also- whatever solution you choose, add a small glass of water to the remedy. Dehydration does funky things to the mind. I hope you are doing better now. While you are trying to pull it all together, don't try to do anything but that- don't go back to the kitchen or anywhere else that you were ill-itated [another Sera southern wits-dom]

Here is the quick and handy :) code- STOP [stop what you were doing], POP [a small carb and a protein], and PLOP [rest for at least 10 min]. Good luck, and let us know how you are doing.
