My day started well but went downhill so I'm coping with ice cream and chocolate. This isn't ideal.

I ate a little breakfast, but I think I am going to continue this awesome day with just some surfing of the internet. And maybe continue doing this for days on end. Breakfast and internet, breakfast, coffee, internet, chilling, TV on as well, maybe some music. This is going to be something that I won't regret.

Bad migraine. I've had so much sick time, I'm afraid I'm going to lose my job. Or have to resign it.

Migraines are the worst. Are you getting medication for them? Iím on a preventative medication and itís made a huge difference.

Had to take several doses to get relief. A preventive medication, I've never heard of. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll ask my doctor about it.

I'm doing okay today in the sense that I'm up, showered, dressed and ready for the home inspection which is part of a process of renovation work. I'm really angry with my partner though, various mundane reasons and some (most) of it is just anxiety about the home inspection.
I feel guilty that it's mainly my anxiety causing the problem but on the other hand he didn't really help much to clean up and he could support me instead of just stonewalling the issue and being extra obnoxious.

Honestly, sick of this life but we all have our crosses to bear etc etc.

This was yesterday, not today, but during downtime at work I looked through my dot journal and it was helpful to reconnect to what is interesting and important to me rather than being distracted by what others deem interesting and important.

Hope you can sort something out, normally preventative medicine is given when youíre having to take relief meds more often. Good to take a long a record of how many migraines youíve been getting.

Possible trigger:
so that's a win.

I just had a really rough patch of hallucinations and agitation/racing thoughts/edginess, but some music, a cold shower, talking to a crisis line, and using the 5 senses grounding technique helped while waiting 45 minutes for a PRN to kick in.

I slept really good. My pain has been pretty much controlled. My food restriction is hard today and I have therapy tonight and I know I'll get mine if I don't eat something. I could use a long nap right now instead of food

I'm feeling much better today after my little 36 hour emotional meltdown. I'm still a bit sore from it but I've been out shopping and done some drawing. I'm tired but I don't feel like sleeping in the day time, again.

I ate 4 popsicles to cool off from a heated exchange with a very unpleasant customer. This is how the conversation ended:

Very unpleasant customer: ďIím going to file a complaint!Ē
Me: ďSo do it.Ē
Very unpleasant customer: muttering expletives while storming out.

Little do they know, the complaint comes right back to our office. Now we get to call them & tell them too bad, so sad, but youíre not getting special treatment, sorry, not sorry. I just hope my manager steps up & does their job. I can dreamÖ
