    I forgot to mention that the massage therapist said my adrenals were "a bit up". I am not surprised if they would seem inflamed or something, based on how stressed I've been lately. I'm sure working on lowering stress will help everything right now.

    At last today has some beautiful and perfect Halloween weather. Of course, I can't get any pictures of it right now! Contemplating zipping home to grab my phone, makes me too nervous not to have it.

    Breathe.
    I know the uber stressed headspace, it was/ is my playground. Rather than borrowing trouble from the future, or picking up past troubles, live in the present. If your head starts yammering away that omigod, omigod, omigod [stressful thing], put away that stressful thing, temporarily. If you can't do that for an hour, do it for a minute, even a breath. Then the next minute or breath ,and on. When you have found your calm, allow yourself to enjoy it. Yes, you'll hafta pick the stressful thing back up, but you can pick them back up one at a time, examine them and what is causng the stress/ anxiety about it. Figure out a solution, even a temporary or possible solution, and implement it. Then put the stressor back down. If it has a path, it doesn't need to be on your mind.

    For once, it feels like the present is overwhelming. Everything is going on at once.

    Breathing. I can't do anything about any of this while at work and without my phone.

    Yes, I'm still whining over here. Just trying to keep busy until I can get out of here, but there's not much to do.

    I finished the chocolate bar and that plus the stress has resulted in a sore on my gums. I will be resuming my coconut oil pulling tonight! At least I don't feel inclined to eat any candy tonight, knowing that I can make myself some hot chocolate with gelatin instead. I think we might get to see the little ones tonight, including the new baby .

    I realized recently that I am more like my dad than I'd like to be. He is master of taking on projects and never finishing them. My parents' house is a shrine to them. I really don't want to be like that, but I lose motivation for my projects pretty easily when I run out of funds/supplies. To resume sewing, I would need to get fabric and shelving to organize my supplies. I have a template printed out to make myself a vest, but I need materials. I don't know how to break this cycle. I don't know what an acceptable resolution would be. To start with, I'll get those cheap wire shelves at Target that my mom told me about.

    To do list for the weekend: get my goddamn passport photo taken!!!

    In other news, I think the biotin is making my hair thicker, but I don't think it's growing any faster. I want to try taking it for at least a few months before I give up. I read that it can take that long before you really see a difference anyway.

    I already have a passport, I need a new photo to send in for a renewal (since my name changed). I might try to go to the post office Saturday and see if they'll do a picture.

    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    As for the drama, I've seen a few friends in that situation and it hasn't ended well. As there is no way to insure that they will get a job by a certain point (and thus the money to move out), and the people letting them stay will feel torn between being nice and letting them stay (even though it was stressful for both parties) and just kicking them out (which would have resulted in them being homeless, as they didn't have other options).

    Though I think that other people had a good suggestion of using Coach as an out (or at least to set an enforcable time limit).
