I over-reacted yesterday to the mess, and I did it with food. I realize that I hadn't actually give it any thought ... as to alternatives to food for dealing with problems. So... as I lay there, I came up with other ways to get away from the situation until I'm calmed down:
- take a walk around the block
- ride the exercycle
- get in car and just drive
- take a nap
- listen to music with headset on and volume up loud
- take a bubble bath or long shower
- blog with a huge rant
- watch a movie
I'm sure there are more, but that's all I can remember now that its morning.
I woke up this morning after finally getting about 3 hours sleep, only to find my cough (NOT the swine flu!) had mutated to include stuffed up ears (I practically can't hear anything) and a sore throat. Dr. appointment at 3:50 this afternoon. I don't feel like eating but drank a protein shake. Will probably make some hot tea too.
