Friday Confessions.

There’s only one this week. I mean, I AM going out in a bit to buy seeds, with the seed catalogue in my hand, and I will be happy to ask n0ob questions of David Hunter’s helpful staff. You all know I am nerdy and okay with it.

But there’s this: I am angry at myself. I’ve been eating crap every night. I’m talking biscuits and butter. I’m talking potato chips. I’m talking popcorn. I’m even talking the decadent evil that is E’s Special Kraft Dinner. Carrots and fruit and salad don’t cut it. I’m mad because I don’t need the calories, and I don’t need the crap. I’m not even that hungry. I’m just eating.

Anybody else got some crap they don’t need?

    When I find myself eating for no reason, it often means I’m bored. Dunno if that’s it for you, but if it is, a good book might help. Or an obsessive project of some kind.

    My confession: I have no faith in people. Which wouldn’t matter so much except that I work myself up about how so-and-so isn’t going to come through for me, and then the person comes through after all, and I’ve got all this extra, useless MAD kicking around with no reason for it.

    I actually went to the doctor last week about my hand. I went for the x-rays and am waiting to hear back about the nerve specialist appointment. In the meantime my hip has begun to bother me and my other hand has started to act up. My confession is that I have spent the last week googling my symptoms and coming up with lots of lovely options none of which make me feel particularly confident. I’ve also kept all of this anxiety away from Ryan because … because speaking about it might make it worse not better. Not because he would make it worse in his reaction but because I would be vocalising my fears and somehow making them become an actuality.

    I am not very happy with my body at the moment, it feels like it is letting me down. How is it possible that this very same body carried a baby for 9 months, pushed it out and now is deciding to fall apart on me. I have tried to explain to it that I don’t have time for this but it is not listening.

    Maybe I’m bored, Rachel. Maybe I should be practicing dancing or something. And faith in people can be hard. And then, when someone comes through, it’s tough because your judgment goes into question, and that’s kind of like being called into the principal’s office, but you’re the authority as well as the kid, and that’s frigging frustrating.

    Genevieve, your body is telling you something: You’re under stress. Listen to it, not the Internet.

    I ate half a pint of chocolate chunk brownie awesomeness ice-cream last night while watching Across the Universe.

    Hey, a half a pint is better than a pint, Stephanie. Besides, it was medicinal. Calcium and tryptophan. Or whatever it is that chocolate has.
