    Hulky is working on getting our honeymoon plane tickets today The prices dropped to the lowest we've seen in weeks. For some reason, Kayak is not accepting our debit cards. I think he's going to call and see what's going on (he got paid, so it's not an issue of funds, and the cards are activated).

    I am going to get ashwagandha and eleuthero root and start rotating those. I know eleuthero root helps elevate my mood a bit, alleviates anxiety, and helps me feel more energized. I've heard ashwagandha can be helpful for anxiety. I'm hesitant to go back to the amino acids now because I am sleeping fine and I don't want to take L-tyrosine without 5-HTP. If I was going to take an amino acid supp, I'd probably try DL-phenylalanine again, or get D-phenylalanine (because I had an odd response to DL- and I guess it's the L- that can do that for some people). Just gotta price out my options.

    I am getting some good stress reduction suggestions on Facebook. I need to find a way to get cycling back into my life. I would totally opt for some kind of exercise class if getting to it was convenient and I could afford it. I'll check out the community center.

    There's a kickboxing class being offered in my town, Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-7 PM for six weeks. No sparring. $100. I can afford it... Maybe that would be good for me. I'm hella nervous though. I want to sign up, but trying to work past my fear of making a fool of myself.

    -edit- I talked to my mom & signed up for it. Dear gods, what did I just get myself into.

    You just got yourself into a good thing. I'm glad to hear you found stress release.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    I really wanted to drink my face off last night. I chugged a beer and had a margarita and all I had to show for it was a headache.

    As my mood has been sliding, I've been letting my food intake slide too. The desire to get back on track is low right now.

    I have to call N today.

    I am fully aware that I am punishing myself by not eating today. I've had a few prunes, a swallow of OJ, and a couple of carrots. I am not in a good place mentally.

    Silver-lining: Hulky and I got yard work done together. I got the wedding photos and am doing some light editing.

    I'm sorry for all the madness lately, guys. I know you are all out there sighing audibly on my behalf and I appreciate it .

    I think I'm going to stay off MDA tomorrow (not that I was on much today). Hopefully, Monday will bring a better report.

    In other news, Hulky signed up for kickboxing with me!

    Hugs and hope you feel better. (Shh sometimes I just don't give a fuck and do un-primal things like not leave my room for a day and veg out on chocolate and not being bothered. Just to get it out of my system. Don't tell lol)
