So much for NO STRESS!
Tue, 09-06-2011 - 11:05pm

Well today has certainly been a series of unfortunate events. Unless I get my stress levels down soon, god knows HOW long I am going to wait to O this month.

For those of you that didn't read my constipation post in the "Waiting to O" section, I've been up since 5 AM with a trip to the ER with four days of constipation, more than likely from the clomid. So I had to drink this whole bottle of magnesium citrate and wait. So, in the meantime I tried to continue with the day's errands (mind you, WHILE running to the bathroom frequently!) when... my car breaks down! So after dealing with that for the next few hours, it's time to meet up at my Uncle's house for dinner. During dinner, my father starts to have chest pains. I can see it in his face he doesn't feel good and I instantly go into a complete state of panic. My mom and him immediately leave to go to the ER and I break out into hysterics. Luckily I have heard from my mom, and so far everything appears to be normal, however they're keeping my dad overnight for observation.

And on top of all this, I have been taking things out on the DB (darling boyfriend) all day. In the midst of my panic tonight I was just screaming at him and felt so awful, but he just doesn't get that when I am in that mood, it's best just to walk away.

After a few things I need to do tomorrow, I am going to try to take it easy on Thursday and Friday until I have to return to work for the weekend.

Sorry for the extreme rant ladies, it's just been a lousy day.

I don't really have anything to say but thinking of you and your no good terrible bad day (have you ever read the book?). Hopefully you're feeling better soon and your father is doing alright. Give DB a big 30+ sec hug, it can help release calming neurotransmitters and just feels good too.
