Today I was on a roller coaster of hormone-induced emotions, going from furiously angry to near-tears for absolutely no reason at all. ("Everyone here hates me, I don't know what I'm doing in this stupid job, no one sees my worth, everyone sucks but me..." /whine) It seems as I get older my actual periods are reasonably light and don't last very long (three, four days, tops) - but the HORMONE side comes sooner and lasts WAY longer, from three/four days before to well into it. Thus the blahs, and everything else.
So I stopped on the way home to get a few little necessities; there were some nice slacks at Big Lots so I got a pair in size 8 - a little tight, but another five pounds and they'll be perfect. Then I got my prescription filled and got home to find out a good friend is in the hospital with gallstones. Yikes! As she is a LJ friend, many of you are mutual friends and info's been posted in her journal, so I can preserve her anonymity while sending her big, careful hugs (when she gets out, of course!).
Of course I'm also having cravings for things I shouldn't be eating - yesterday I topped 2000 calories, yikes. But rather than the single splurge I do think the four pounds I suddenly gained today is due to water retention (for all male friends, sorry about the annoying female post...).
Monetary query: Should I pamper myself and spend money on a massage? We need haircuts, too. I also have my eye on a pair of pumps on eBay. Shoes! I can't seem to get enough of them. Maybe that's the hormones, too.
