I'm having a little bit of a pity party. I'm really overwhelmed. I think being a doctorate student, doing an internship, teaching a new district program, having 50 students, taking care of three cats (two of which are on twice daily meds), having a 70 pound pup by your side most of the day that needs a decent amount of exercise, learning to co-parent a seven year old, writing a newspaper column, taking 12 credits, and trying to do a little good for yourself will wear a person out. I'm tired, unprepared, fat, frustrated, and down.
Oh, and did I share I now have to wear a night guard to bed every night? My dentist said the stress is being shown on my teeth and I'm grinding them so bad that they're showing a lot of wear in only three months, my jaw bone is out of alignment, and my mouth locks every time I open more than two inches...and since I'm a stress eater that's pretty much every five seconds. Apparently I'm grinding at night as well as all day long. I don't know which is worse - the fact I show stress in my mouth or on my ass.
