When I was younger, I was pretty intense. You can almost say crazy intense – I was like an emotional time bomb. If you look back at my archives to my early years, it was very obvious how much burden I was to myself. I breathed stress every day and I’m just glad those days are behind me now. There is no way I’ve resolved my issues but I’d like to think I’ve made serious progress. I really don’t know how I managed to live!
Day 11 — When I’ve had a really bad day the first thing (not person) I reach for is…
The difference between my craziness then and now is that I can handle it better now (or so I believe). When I’m about to explode, the first thing I reach for is a bottle of water because I find that most times I’m just dehydrated that is why I feel horrible. Can you believe that? But it is true! Just goes to show you that the littlest things really make a huge difference.
Sometimes, the bad days are hormonal. I suffer from terrible PMS (pre monster syndrome! :lol:) and one time I even got hospitalized because of dysmenorrhea. These are monster days.
Once my friend asked me why my sanity has a monthly expiration date and I told him this is probably the reason. For these times, I take a bath loads of times in a day. I do not know why it helps but it does and as long as it aids me in keeping my sanity together longer, I’m not complaining!
PS. The photo is totally unrelated but I wanted to put it up because my friend Eko drew it. I’m the one up front, he is next to me, and my travel buddy Rem is the rabbit. Fantastic! 😀
