I'm still quite a bit in survival mode right now.
The IC is calming down finally, but now my period has started for another whiz-bang of a pelvic party. Ibuprofen helps with the cramps, but I am chained to the house for the first several days of my periods just for their heaviness, and besides that my head is so, so sensitive, and now I'm finding myself feeling sad and really lonely, so I've decided that I need to focus on what is good.
~*~**~*~A List of What is Good~*~**~*~
Daiya Cheddar (I'm still on the IC diet, and still praising the vegan overlords for the soy-free, dairy-free genius that is this stuff)
The hit 90's tv series Charmed, starring Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs, and Alyssa Milano
Pot, which is saving my head, and the bubbler that is saving my lungs
Being able to exercise
Tumblr (I'm starting to lose time, so it may be time to back away)
My boyfriend. Having support is invaluable.
The internet, at large. It is my lifeline, and my major time sucker. Pros and cons.
Tortillas. Everything is better wrapped in a tortilla.
Books. The thing about rereading old favorites is that the book stays the same but sometimes we've changed. The same happens with all kinds of things, but books are so personal to me, it's always surprising to reread something I've read a thousand times and have totally new thoughts about it.
Sleep. Just can't get enough.
A night warm enough to have the windows open and the sound of crickets lulling me to sleep.
Dogs, because they help me live in the moment, and find joy in just being alive.
