Today is Monday and I’ve completely forgotten to find something motivational in the slightest. @_@ Gomen nasai! (I’m sorry!)
Today has been the first day back to school after our spring break.
Well, I went to class, only to not be able to be in class. Turns out my poor teacher hurt her knee, and needed more time to rest. So there was a note on the door. I likely looked awful for a moment, I’d sat in my van for a few minutes right outside the building, not even thinking to look at the door. Got out and started to walk in and didn’t even notice the letter until I was almost close enough to open the door.
I laughed at myself, for not noticing it. Then I felt really bad because for a second it seemed that I was laughing at poor Sheryl’s (teacher’s name, she likes to be called by her first name. It’s good to know these things, because I never know if I should call teachers by their first names or their last.. in particular the kids’ teachers!) injured knee. That wasn’t it in the slightest!
Of course, it was also a blessing in disguise, I got to go Easter shopping! … Which was considerably more stressful than years past because I had to check everything for Gluten as the kids are trying to go as Gluten free as they’re able to. They can’t when they’re with my ex-husband, and I don’t know if the school does anything about food allergies. So.. I’m back to pack bento’s for them. So at least then I can be 100% sure and so can they.. that they’re getting Gluten Free… at least for the most part.
Of course, on top of that, my ex (not ex-husband, but Lisi’s dad) thinks that I just “refuse” to eat anything with gluten in it, instead of not ‘being able to’… Erm… What about going gluten free says that I can eat gluten?
Anyway, I’ve actually felt a lot better since the withdrawals seem to be dying out. Though it doesn’t help that I am PMS’ing like crazy and all. I think part of my issue was withdrawals from my anti-depressants at the same time. Yes… I took myself off both gluten and anti-depressants at the same time.
Aside from irritable (which could still be a withdrawal symptom from gluten from what I’ve read?? and.. it’s also a PMS thing)…. I don’t feel a difference in my lack of anti-depressants. Which is… amazing. I’ve been a wreck emotionally for so many years and right now I feel almost exactly like I did on Celexa.
Though don’t take that as me saying if you’re on anti-depressants to just get off of them. One of the reasons I got off is because my doctors wouldn’t agree to test my thyroid, instead their methods of treating me have been to throw medication after medication at me in hopes that one works.
Something about that just feels… so… off. You know? Like something wasn’t clicking in my head that made all this feel okay.
Yikes, @_@ It’s in my best interest right now to leave this here. I have an exam tomorrow in Soc and… I had a hard time focusing over spring break as I just wanted to relax. @_@ Go me!
Tomorrow I will show pictures of the bento’s from today (Monday) and tomorrow (Tuesday). Along with the usual “Turkey Tuesday” post! 😉
Ja matta ashita!
