In a phrase, I’m surviving. The heat has been making life difficult, and we’ve had a couple speed bumps this past month. For the second year in a row, our air conditioner gave out just as it was heating up. The repair man couldn’t get out to us until the next day, so I had to stay home and wait in the heat for him to come fix it. And of course he needed parts he didn’t have to fix it, so he had go track them down and get approval from the insurance to purchase them. All told, it didn’t get fixed until late that afternoon when it had already heated up to pretty much unbearable temperatures inside.
Needless to say, I had a migraine that day. And it lasted for four days.
The a/c in our car has been acting up as well. We have to be doing freeway speeds for it to kick in, or it just blows hot. About half of our commute home is side streets, so this has been a problem. We’re hopefully getting it fixed on Wednesday, but there’s no telling how much it is going to cost so of course that has both of us worried.
All the stress isn’t good for me either, so I’ve been having more panic attacks. There is a chance I might be pregnant, so I’ve been avoiding taking my medication, and to be honest I’m not coping well. I have an appointment to see my psychiatrist in a couple of weeks, so hopefully he will be able to help me deal without using medication.
I’m sorry my posting has been infrequent, I’m just not feeling it lately.
