My Brain Hurts

I think I need some time off work, I had a bit of a meltdown yesterday, I was on my way to the doctor and stopped briefly to return stuff at the library, and then the car* wouldn’t start again. Then I couldn’t find my mobile, had no money (at all, like three 5 cent pieces) and so I wandered into the RSPCA op-shop across the road from the car park and asked the grannies there to use their phone, they were very nice, so I started crying all over them. (I do that as soon as someone is nice to me when I’m upset.) I rang the doctor’s surgery, but I couldn’t get a hold of HP, and the car still wouldn’t go, so I walked back to work again and drank tea and whinged to a mate and felt generally pissed off.

Of course, when I got a lift back to my car and finally met HP there, the bloody thing started (it’s something to do with the starter motor or immobiliser-computer-type-thingy not wanting to play when the engine gets hot.) Arghhhhh! And now I can’t get in to see my doctor as she’s going to England for most of June and is booked out.  None of this may seem particularly difficult to those of you who have a good handle on life and it’s ups and downs, but for those of us who can relate to this:


it was the proverbial straw.

I will have to be like this more often:

    Ooooooh Noooooo! It’s very true….you can take only so much before the next thing tips you over the edge! I hope you’re having a much better day today.

    I can relate to you having a melt down!! This month hasn’t been the greatest for my family either. Things that I can talk about but would love to talk about have made life nasty! I just pray that things get better for you sweetie! Just know that you are in my thoughts always! Hugs to you!
