And so this is adulthood to me: emerging from those self-conscious years to find that people aren't looking at me as much as I had feared (or, perhaps, secretly hoped) they were.  In fact, I am - we all are - both horribly and wonderfully anonymous in this world.

From a very well-written article by Andrea Avery in the latest Real Simple magazine that talks about her body image (as she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 12) throughout the years.  I don't think we're completely anonymous as there are people who will see and, perhaps, mock but I think it's an interesting statement to mull over.  (If you read it, it's in the Life Lessons section, called 'Beauty in Motion').

Oh.  Oh hell, okay...


Now that I've figured out what the hell happened today (on top of bad insomnia, eating habits thrown out the window and stress), I can probably keep an eye on it for the next few days.  This isn't an excuse for crazy behavior, because it's still bad, but I'm now longer sort of freaking myself out about what happened today.  (It just reminded me of the bad days, you know?)

Also, is it bad that I've been so busy at work that I haven't used the restrooms there long enough to forget the passcode to get into the ladies room? XD

It took me nearly two hours to get home tonight - it took nearly 50 minutes to go all of 4 stops on the metro.  I'm...very drained right now and have lost my sense of humor/mood/everything that isn't a lump somewhere on the damned metro.

I'm just going to sit here for a moment and stop being miserable.
