Don't feel like a tool. Seriously. You just said what many others feel, and that's ok

Thanks, everyone. <3 I don't know what on earth happened...the past few years, just feels like someone abducted the nice, sweet Elfmom we all knew and loved and replaced her with ElfRantyGrandma.

I keep feeling like I don't have time to myself. There is always something I have to do, like write assignments, read for classes, write job applications, work out, practice my Hindi, write... like there is no time to breathe. So what happens is that my mind just stops working, and I do things I enjoy but wasn't supposed to do at the time. And I hate it! I hate feeling like I need to measure up what I' doing with productivity.

I can't find it now, but on teletext, there was a post that said one of the political groups wants to remove financial support from female immigrants who don't actively go out and get jobs or start the process to do that. The thing is they worded it really badly?

From what I remember: 'They want to remove financial support from female immigrants that are forced to stay in the kitchen.' 
Like.
'Let's punish the women.'
'Erh, aren't they being forced to work at home and likely threatened and beaten if they try to get a job? I don't se-'
'PUNISH THE WOMEN!!!!'

Seriously. He brought mites into the house from a trip to Guatemala. I've been cleaning up and killing them for three weeks, cheerfully. I bought us body wash to kill them (cus yeah, they were biting), took us shopping for a new mattress (because that's were they settled), sprayed everywhere with stuff to kill them (having researched what would do them in without poisoning the house and he dogs), laundered all the clothes and bedding and every pillow we own... And cleaned the house several times over the course of two weeks. All without complaining or blaming him or even asking for help, because he caught a cold on the plane and wasn't feeling well. In fact, I made him soup. The last thing I did rent a steam cleaner for all the furniture. The machine was broken. Oh wait... yeah! Forgot to mention that I also bought encasements for the mattress and pillows. Anyways... The day I tried to use the power cleaner I rented-- it was broken and flooded the living room three times. I did all the troubleshooting I could, then called and left a message asking for help.

I guess I sounded upset. But what I said was "I can't figure out this machine! Please come home and help me!" Then... I called the store to complain so I could get my money back... and the guy there walked me through taking off the cover and repairing the machine. (Someone had disconnected the parts inside.) So I texted my boyfriend "never mind."

He then didn't come home for hours because he assumed that meant I was angry at him. And when he did get him, asked why i had to freak or and go crazy on him. I was like... Excuse me, what?! And then I let him understand exactly where he could get off. That was NOT okay.

I think I have yelled at him maybe five times in the five years we have been dating and three that we were friends. That was a moment in which he just asked for it.

Calling someone crazy is up there with 'you're overreacting'. Them's fighting words, baby.

That's terrible. It shows complete cultural contempt and really comes off like they're looking down at this group of people. That would totally piss me off too!

I have chronic insomnia, which sometimes peaks into not sleeping at all, despite everything I do. OH seems to spend about 2/3 of his life asleep. Most nights I listen to him and my brother (= our roommate) snore all night long, yet still "need" naps during the day, if their schedules allow; I deserve a medal, a gazillion dollars, and/or my own private island for not slaying them both after several years of this. But that's not exactly what prompted this rant today.

Last night was one of those "not sleeping no matter what" nights. Sometimes the way my brain keeps me awake is by throwing up purely made-up horrifying images that I can't get to dissipate. I was finally starting to drift off, then my mind's eye threw up a vivid image of a puppy, gazing up at me with ancient, scared eyes and a blood-spattered face. I don't know where this shit comes from, and days like today I want to jam a melon baller up my own nose and carve away the chunk of brain that keeps giving me such lovely fucking gifts.

I staggered downstairs this morning, finally having stolen a few hours after the sun came up. I tried to tell OH about this image (you know how sharing something can help), and his flippant reaction was "Just stop thinking it!"

Now why the fuck didn't I think of that!! Just stop it! Bam, done! Evil or Very Mad But... but... I was enjoying that visual-- as well as the inability to get some goddamn sleep-- so. Very. Much...

Let's solve all the world's problems that way, shall we? Hey, starving people! You should, like, eat something, yanno? Hey, depressed people! You need to just smile more! Hey, poor people! You just need some money, that's all!

I am not speaking to him this morning. For HIS protection.

That's awful "mind pictures". Hug *HUGs Bluetree* This remark was not helpful at all. :/

I understand well how much talking can help. cathat It's not quite the same but you can always talk to us, Bluetree. In the threads or more privatly if you want. I'm serious - if you need to talk come here.

One.Year.

Damned "One Year Rule". Every year give or take the Scroll of Colors was changed, turned, twisted, frozen ... My threads were messed up. I had to rebuild. I was so happy that this year nothing bad will happen ... that I can build instead of rebuild. I was just at the point to be able to "return to normal" and be creative again ...

All my picture links (almost all?) are broken tonight. Something is wrong with my photobucket accout. Most probably I have missed something essential and my pictures are deleted or it's something wrong with them or whatever. Maybe it will go "back to normal" tomorrow. I don't think so.

Looks like I'll have to rebuild again. One Year. One year circles. Maybe it's a SIGN.
I should stop doing this. It will not last. Either I cannot control what happens - cannot influence it. Or - I can and fail. And mess up.

It will be messed up. Every.Damned.Year.
