things I learned today

  • shopping therapy really does help a bit when you're feeling like crap
  • I'm starting to find it easier and easier to stick to the "I'm not afraid of colors" mantra when shopping - mostly evidenced by this bag I got myself today
  • my cat is (for some reason) terrified of balloons - like, run and hide under the bed scared - I was hoping he'd enjoy playing with it for at least a while, but nope, not happening
  • going off the antidepressants I'm taking for my PMDD-related troubles actually helps me with my libido and not feeling like I'm either numb or so sensitive that the barest touch leaves me feeling like I'm bruised
  • if I want to get off the antidepressants I'm taking for my PMDD-related troubles, I'm going to have to find some other way to deal with it, because being able to get off and not feel bruised isn't really worth the emo-fest I go through every month
  • the emo-fest makes it really hard to function in the real world, because even the slightest inconvenience/frustration/sad thing/cute animal makes me want to curl up and cry until I pass out
  • there is something equally frustrating (especially when your iron is as crappy as mine), embarrassing (because seriously, who does that anymore), and satisfying (because ahhh, sliding in under the nicely covered duvet) about making the bed with freshly ironed sheets
  • the feeling only lasts for a day or two, and then the sheets get all wrinkled and covered with cat hair anyway
  • bullet point lists are a good way to get out some things that I want to get out but don't really feel like talking about in detail
  • I can't wait until it's warm enough to sleep with my windows open again

Hello I stumbled upon your journal through the interest of 'adobe photoshop' and found your journal to be quite interesting. Especially this post that I can relate to, with taking medications; I also take medication (they're psyche meds) I just know that I become really dehydrated from them. I also can relate with shopping is very therapeutic, (I actually went down to this little thrift store a half a block away from my house & bought three sweaters & it seemed to make me feel better also. & who doesn't love cats? i found it amusing that you said your cat is afraid of balloons! I pictured it perfectly in my mind about your kitty running away from balloons. I would like to add you, if that would be okay? I feel like I can relate to your journal more than anyone elses. Let me know if you would like to be a friend.
