So today, I've been putting up with lying from a deliveryperson, a PayPal representative, the guy who hit me and mom in the parking lot last week, and the person who cut in front of me at the grocery store.

Throw in a bunch of other random crap and I feel slightly like I want to ***** slap someone. I'm having a nice cold drink while the other half is out of the house for awhile.

Do you tend to chill out more on the "sucks ass" days, or do something active/physical? (or something else).

I'm going to confront the car accident guy just to see if he can lie to my face as well as on the phone. Maybe if I warn him that I've not been sleeping so well, am hopped up on gobs of progesterone, lacking caffeine and feeling slightly stressed about shooting a person out of me in three weeks, he'll be more careful to consider his answer.

Just say eff social courtesy and the like to act how you are feeling (like a lunatic) it's awesome. It's very freeing, you'll be surprised the things you do or what comes out of your mouth.

Laughing over the absurdity of it is a bonus.

If I was lacking caffeine, nevermind all your other issues, I probably would have killed one of the folks you mentioned by now. Maybe all of them.


Do you have a dog you can borrow to pet and stroll through the woods with? Does England even have woods? The dog will listen to all your troubles too and agree with everything you say.

I eat chocolate, go to my favorite websites, and stay away from IAmJen and Sevesseas when they have those days.

No doubt, d.j!

Wolfie, I do miss Baby G's dogs. I swear, for the whole time I worked for them, the Westie was under the impression that I came each day to play with *her*.

I'm a 'chill' kind of person when I have really bad days. Usually it's due to work which has changed over the last year or so (not for the better). It helps to just get home as fast as I can, make something warm to drink and either turn on the tv (soap operas), enjoy looking at nature (depending on what's going on outside), or go to the computer. If I am going to do anything active, it will be yoga or pilates. Just being 'home' helps me a lot.

I wish I could say I exercise to burn off all the frustration or do yogo to relax but I lack such healthy coping mechanisms!
I tend to just ***** and moan to anyone that will listen about how much people suck and how I hate people, hate the world, hate life, etc.

I usually don't do either, I just keep on going. That's only because nothing makes me more stressed than having stuff to do that I'm not doing though. When I'm through with everything that needs doing, I sit down with a coffee and read a book usually. I find regular exersise stops me from feeling too stressed generally, but I don't get that "I've had a bad day, I need to go beserk at the gym/whatever" feeling.

Better today. On the "hit" thing..it was that someone backed up into our car. He apologised profusely, exchanged info, yada yada. Now, he claims that it was my fault (even though my car was still). Nice.

Today though = an afternoon with my former nanny gals at the fair. Loads of fun!

I'm sorry you were having such a bad time.


I usually try very hard to be and stay relaxed, but when I do get stressed to my breaking point I tend to wander off and hide out where I can be away from people and take my time calming down without losing my temper and yelling at anyone. Usually I pick someplace like my bedroom or maybe the porch and once there I'll just pace, back and forth for a while while I try to chill out. I like being able to move enough to let off some steam, but at the same time I don't want to have to pay attention to what's going on around me, otherwise I would probably go out for a walk.
