Tingling Tuesday - daily post may contain TRIGGERS

Morning everyone

Weather: hot, sultry and wet

Sleep: Restless, almost none

Mood: Exhausted, pissed off and depressed. Being sick on top of that doesn't help the general mood.

Plans: So far I have returned a phone interview with DCF, although I don't know more they could possibly need from me. Set an appt with the same opth and called med case mgr with insurance to find out I have no choice in not seeing a neuro opth that i was referred to because they refuse to accept ins no matter what. Apparently n-o's are few and far between. So basically, sit and mull about everything that is not going right. I know I shouldn't but I can't help myself. End of month, no $ to go do something to distract me. Too much rain to go to water park (passes). I have to push myself to shower or cook. Not eating very much. Pretty much just dinner. Maybe I'll curl up in bed and hide away all day. Kids away @ dad's so no one I have to pretend to hide it. Hubs already knows. Clear as day to him and if things don't improve, then he's going to force me to check into a crisis unit. So that's it for me.
