10/19/10 Busy Busy

I'm in a little better mood today. There is a person in my life that I allow to affect me far too much, and I was with this person all day last week. We're not good friends; we aren't together that often. When we are though, this person pisses me off to no end. This person is territorial, grudge-holding, and a martyr. Endless irritation. I don't know why I let it bother me so much. I'm working on it. It took me freaking five days to get past it this time. That is way too much time to be wasting on that nonsense. I know what you are going to say, but unfortunately this is not someone I can cut ties with.

Moving on...

I was starving this morning... I mean, really hungry. Hungrier than usual. When I finally got to my lunch meeting, I started wolfing down my sandwich like an idiot, and, sure enough, it got stuck. I felt that slime start backing up in my mouth, and I damned restriction for showing up right THEN. I did a test swallow to see if it would stay down -- no luck. I quickly realized I was going to have to make a run for it, and thank God there was a bathroom (an empty bathroom) nearby. I spit a few times into the toilet, put my hands over my head, and prayed for it to be over quick. Just then, I heard that gurgling, slow-drain sound, a burp came out, and all was well in my stoma. Yes, and then I finished the damned sandwich. It just goes to show that even when you don't feel like you have restriction, you have to remember there is still something around your stomach.

Sorry for the stuck incident. At least it resolved pretty quickly.

And the toxic person...if it isn't possible to cut the ties, then please reduce your exposure and try not to give her so much power.

I had a person in my life like you speak of. She was a coworker and luckily I changed jobs 5 years ago and no longer have to deal with her. So far my pbs have been quick and painless - and at home, thank goodness.
