I still did my shift, since I didn't want to leave them hanging, but I'm really shaken up. I just feel icky and I don't know if I can keep volunteering. I don't know, it was just upsetting even though it was just water

Yikes. That's awful. I'm so sorry you had to go through that and you were very brave to continue on with your shift.

Feeling surrounded by passivity and inaction and non-reciprocity. Feeling, not for the first time, like depression is creeping back into my life.

'creeping back' ... what measures where taken when it appeared before?

Has something triggered it or is it general life malaise?

Who is generating the non-reciprocity?

Oh, thanks teacup. I'm okay. That was a bit much for me to dump into my post. I expect this is just non-clinical bummed-outness. Apart from anything else, it is mid-winter here and it's been grey and rainy for most of the fortnight. The other stuff is just a rut, too. :-)

I'm sick so I have to call out of work. I hate calling in sick though. I feel so bad for the supervisor taking the call, because now taking care of the missing labour is on them. :( (I've been that supervisor, many many times!)

Derp. I accidentally used the term "sniffles". My manager knows I don't call out sick unless I really am, but now I feel sort of ridiculous. I really can't work - nonstop sniffles, coughing, running nose, sore throat - and I work in food service preparing drinks and selling directly to customers. Colds are not good. Blah!

I'm at work, or as I like to call it, a 2+ hour commute via public transportation away from home. I think I have food poisoning. Either that or my stomach is catching on to the fact that I've taken ibuprofen every day for a week. Either way, can't stop being terribly ill. Need to go home. Terrified I am not going to be able to get there without puking on the bus, which doesn't stop for an hour so it's not like i'll even be able to get off and puke. And what if someone sits next to me? And then I will have to spend the whole ride a) trying not to vomit and b) specifically trying not to vomit on the person next to me.

I don't know what the fork to do. I wish there was a room here I could just go curl up in until tomorrow, then I would not even go home.

I apparently don't qualify for financial aid next year. Dear University, please tell me more about all this money my family has because I haven't seen it.

We went to a movie this afternoon, and apparently at some point my debit card fell out of my wallet. By the time I noticed it was gone a few hours later, someone had cleaned out my checking account. I called and cancelled the card and filed fraud claims and everything, I should have a new card and the money returned to my account within 10 days, but that means that for a good chunk of time I have zero money. Nothing. I am beyond frustrated and pissed and I pretty much hate everyone and everything right now.

On top of that excitement, I've had a headache for 2 days straight that refuses to respond to any kind of normal painkillers. I'm at the point where I'm getting ready to take some of the dilaudid I have leftover from when I was in the hospital. Ugh, I quit today. I was in such a good mood this morning, now I'm just... angry and defeated.

That's horrible amandabear. Some people are just mustards. At least you will get it back but the inconvenience and bad feeling in the meantime sucks.

So this feels like a really not that bad thing, but I tried to do something nice and leave secret surprises at some people's doors today, only I screwed up and thought someone was back from vacation who wasn't so now I have to drive back and retrieve it from the other side of town, with a toddler. Wish I'd known before I had a couple drinks. Argh! And there's another house where I thought the person was leaving next week but now I'm not sure about that either. I'm feeling like kind of a failure and kind of tired, and this is supposed to be day 2 of pottytraining and against all recommendations I've forced my toddler to spend many of her waking hours in the car seat.

it's been a really weird day. on not much sleep, I did a decent ride today (130km or so). around 120km I got some messages and an email that (boring story even more boring), a girl that's been using the spare room was hospitalised by her ex, and he's made it clear there's more to come. and it seems like he'll stop at nothing. so (also boring story even more boring), I can't stay at my place for the next few days because he has a key (it was in her jacket) and I'm apparently in danger. I'm exhausted, pretty stressed (which doesn't really happen to me) and forking confused.

things will settle I assume, but he's unpredictable and very much wanted by the police. she deleted her email and Facebook (he probably has access to them) so there's no real way to be in contact with her for updates

I won't say much in the unlikely event he read this, but, everyone involved (incl cats) are away and safe. fingers crossed we all stay that way

yeah I'll do it obviously, but honestly, changing locks won't stop someone on a mission. there are lots of windows (that will be open, because summer). I really won't feel any safer at all

siggggh. at least I've had some rest. I can figure out a battleplan today
