Self-medication of a very different kind

You know when you were a kid going on holidays, in the back seat of the car, your dad’s doing 120km down the highway, your brother and sister are fighting next to you, your mum’s about to cry from exasperation and you decide it would be awesome to wind the window down and stick your head right out into all that air that is rushing against the car?

You know how it gets all inside your mouth with such force that you can’t breathe?

And you know that moment where you miss a step, and your body jolts and your feet tingle and you feel that fear that starts in your bones and seeps out into all your skin and your heartmeat and your sweat?

That’s what today’s anxiety feels are made up of.

Missed steps and suffocation.

And how have we elected to medicate? By doing house work on my lunch break.

..  I’m sure this tactic isn’t going to work forever, but I’m taking advantage of it while it is!

WASH ALL THE DISHES! CLEAN ALL THE CLOTHES!

FORGET WHERE YOU PUT THE SPRAY N WIPE THE LAST TIME YOU USED IT!

  1. two things
    a) There is loads of cleaning to be done at my place, although perhaps of ALL THE KILOMETRES in between us, this may not be viable and
    b) I read the other day a correlation between anxiety and Vitamin D efficiency.

    • a) If I come to your house, I actually plan on making it far messier than it was when I arrived LOL

      b) I am actually very low on Vitamin B and never did anything about that, so the whole… vitamin level check thing might need to be done pretty soon, actually. Thanks for the reminder haha.

      • Actually yes. I would be mucho dissaspointedO if we didn’t turn my house into the Trash-Bag-Whore-House-Pad we know it needs to be within our company!
