Looking for the other six dwarves.

I woke up yesterday morning feeling just spiffy. Within a matter of just a few hours, I was the most miserable bitch to crawl the face of the earth. That feeling seems to have spilled over to today.

I couldn't tell you why: objectively, ain't nothing wrong here. My job annoys me, but it doesn't make me physically ill and it isn't causing me permanent mental injury, so I got that going for me, which is nice. The boyfriend-person and I are doing just peachy, last time I checked.

I know I've had two bad hair days in a row, but since I'm not really that vain, I doubt that's it.

I've been having bad face days for weeks now. I have what has apparently become a recurring case of cystic acne. The first time it cropped up was in 2004, when it literally covered my face in huge, oozing, crusty eruptions. I looked like a Dawn of the Dead extra for nine months. This occurrence isn't nearly as bad -- a few larger than average zits on my forehead dead between my eyes, a few next to my nose, a couple on my cheekbone, one on my chin, all of which seem to be going away, finally. In other words, that ain't it, either.

I don't think it's PMS, and I'll beat the crap out of anyone who suggests it is! Whew. Sorry. But I don't think that's it.

Yesterday was grey and cloudy and rainy and crap, but today is actually quite pretty, so that doesn't explain why I'm still grumpy today.

I, like so many others I know, suffer from depression so I'm sort of used to these inexplicable periods of being sad and grumpy for no apparent reason, but this is really pissing me off. (Great, so now I'm sad, grumpy and angry. Swell.) There is seriously (no pun intended, but hey, if it works...) no reason for me to be unhappy *at all* and in fact every reason for me to be dancing in the streets like one of those silhouette chicks in the iPod commercials.

Oh well. I am self-treating with chocolate, cigarettes and coffee. If I stay true to form, I'll snap out of it as quickly as I snapped out of it. But right now, it's just annoying the crap out of me. So, naturally, I thought I'd annoy everyone else.

I dislike days like this and I usually use the same self-treatment. Sometimes we just have to ride it out and hope the next day is better.

BTW, have you tried Espom salt to help with the acne? It usually speeds up the "healing" process if used when the blemishes are first noticable. Disolve a small amount in warm water, apply to blemish with a cotton ball or q-tip twice per day.

Yup, I've had those days too, sometimes hard to pinpoint a reason. However, I am bitchy today, and I know it's PMS.

Vitamin B stress tabs, Calcium and Magnesium supplements help the bitchy moods and I fully support a good dark chocolate's fine health benefits. Drink water and exercise...kind of common sense...but works for me...been there, done that and learned the hard way this too shall pass hopefully without leaving a scar. Take care.
