A massage sounds like it would help!

 

What are you in school for? It sounds intense!

Also, I told my SO that if he didn’t want me to bring it up and be annoying and sad he should bring it up on his own. And now he does, occassionally giving me updates on how he feels about things and such. Talking really helps!

Your degrees sound super interesting. I would go crazy in a classroom studying stuff like that – I’d be like Let…. Me…. TEACH!!!! (then turn into the Incredible Hulk or something) And wow, two degrees consecutively? Sounds like a LOT of paper-writing! I’m doing one PhD and now want never to write anything again, and I’m not anywhere close to being done.

We all have our things that we need… I need a “hey I’m slowly getting closer to being ready” every few weeks, and ideally I’d like it to be without prodding. Like you with the saving stuff! I used to think that waiting for someone to save was easier, but I think waiting has its own difficulties in each scenario.

Another thing you could do would be to watch a movie! Maybe tell your SO you are crampy and could he please sort out a movie, whether on Netflix online, or finding one on TV or something. And get a super cheap face mask and you can put it on and watch said movie. And gosh, the bee prodding would drive me nuts. I don’t say anything about this stuff IRL, which is probably why I fail the shut it up pact every week. Though I’m getting better. You’ve done so good with your 2 1/2 months – I’m still amazed!

@Sapphire-Dreamer:  HMMM. PMS home remedies…..well you have chocolate and wine…I would suggest a walk? Also Law and Order SVU if you’re into that?

I think it’s cute that he prods you…but i’m sure the PMS is making it really really tough.

@Sapphire-Dreamer:  Last night I had the shocking revelation that my “bad waiting days” coincided perfectly with my cycle!! EVERY month I am the most resentful, most angry, most sad, etc. during that one time of the month. I am so mopey and I cry and feel sorry for myself EVERY month. And then I have a fight with SO about our future EVERY month!! So i get it!! If you or anyone else has coping methods that work during this irrationally emotional time- PLEASE SHARE!!! <3 

I also get grad school… I worry about my future and have sleepless nights and lurk on the bee… And I am soooo behind in school right now. I have done maybe half of my reading assignments and I need to catch up before finals in December- I am hundreds and hundreds of pages behind. So if you need a nudge to write a paper instead of a WB post, let me know!!  I’m sure you worked too hard for waiting to negatively impact your academics!!

I also feel like crap. And I look like crap right now too. I’ve been sick for the past week and a half. Sick enough that I don’t even remember what classes I attended last week let alone know how I passed my midterm on weds (But I’ll take my 86% thank you) or even managed to drive to and from campus without crashing. And to top it off, I recently switched birth control from the depo shot to the copper IUD. Which translates to, I got my period again for the first time in 3 years and so far it has lasted 9 days. As for PMS remedies (and again I’m a little out of practice with this) I put my heating pad on my abdomen and wrap myself up in a blanket (snuggie if you have one) and so long as I’m in my warm cocoon I find it quite hard to be grumpy.

And a least you have your nice apartment to go home to. I live with my SO too but we have a roommate that drives me nuts. He isn’t a bad guy. I’m just intolerant. And frankly it pisses me off that he has to come out and make fun of my dress shows every Friday. SO sits next to me and plays his video games in silence occasionally commenting on a dress he likes. So why can’t my roommate do the same? Or just not bother me? I have watched my dress shows every Friday night since I moved in 10 months ago. Get over it!  (Can you tell I don’t have my heating pad with me?)

@Sapphire-Dreamer:  I feel the same EXACT way!! But, SO has said it will NOT be this calendar year… so I need to figure out a way to be a successful student this semester while waiting- sooo HARD!  I have a feeling that as soon as I can master this it will probably happen, but I need to figure it out NOW before I FAIL this semester. womp. womp.
