Not getting older gracefully

I’ve spent the past 5 weeks marinating in a funk. If I could pinpoint a cause to explain, I would. But everything seems to either aggravate, annoy or piss me off, so I’m at a loss. I’ve always thrived on stress. I’ve always been able to laugh even at the most dire parts of my life. Now I wake up at 4am, pee and then lie awake fretting. Is this what age does? EGADS!

Today I went to the gym for the first time in forever, met friends for coffee, stopped at Costco because no place else on Earth is so horrible and spent $970 on car repair. New brakes and tires later, car is much more pleasant to drive. Y’all that live in cities and don’t have cars? Much smarter than me. YEESH.

I’ve also dosed myself in Benadryl and expect to pass out at any minute. My bresties and belly are covered in a truly awesome rash. Since nothing has changed skin-wise (detergent, lotion, clothes) I went over what I’d eaten in the 24 hours previous (a VAST list) and decided: Shirmp. It will make me really sad to live in a world without shrimp. BUT BOY HOWDIE – I’m so uncomfortable and it’s really hard to scratch your boobs in public and not look crazy. It is also really hard not to scratch.

Obv I’ve just dropped in for a grump. It’s my new thing. I'll come back when I'm not whining....
