Life Update #7
Instead of writing multiple posts, here’s what’s currently going on:
- I ate a damn Nutter Bar. I used to love them, but eating one package of them (has 2 inside) wasn’t the same as it used to be. Maybe this is why I think peanut butter stinks now. Wowbutter smells like peanut butter, and it supposedly tastes just like it as well, and I can’t stand it because of that. Sunbutter smells like sunflower seeds, and perhaps that’s why I don’t mind it. If you’re wondering, I did have difficulty breathing, and I used my inhaler for such. I’m now itchy as can be all over. That will officially have been my last dose of anything with nuts. I’m not really willing to risk my life for stupid nuts. (Which means that someone needs to make a nut-free Snickers bar ASAP.)
- I called and scheduled a counseling appointment. And I wish someone had done that for me rather than making me “take responsibility and call”. Because doing that for me is harder than it may seem. Also, when someone calls for themselves/admits themselves, they aren’t taken as seriously as someone who another admitted/called in for. Calling for help on your own is really hard. Admitting you need help is hard, too. When health and mental illness is involved, it shouldn’t be up to that individual to get help on their own. It’s not a responsibility to them, but a responsibility to you to stop telling them the risks and what will happen if they don’t and instead to intervene and get them the help they need to stop that! I was told the risks of eating disorders, but all that makes me do is not care, especially since, “once it starts, you can’t stop the side effects”.
My point: I could have gotten help sooner.
- Straight Talk’s $45 plan includes tax that is almost $10. In other words, it’s totally not like what I was expecting. I should have just stuck with Virgin Mobile USA with their shitty customer service because at least their billing site works and isn’t shit. …AND their tax is below $5. Because of this, I was afraid I had a much lower amount in my bank account left over from after I paid my phone bill this month. When I realized I have more than I thought I did, I did a little happy dance. :p
- I got a haircut. It’s much shorter than I’m used to, but it should grow out faster now. Commencing the journey to side swept bangs and longer layered hair! I need to get some more cute bow barrettes.
