So, since the work shakeups, certain things that were never previously a hassle are now a huge big deal. And then other things that were a big deal are huge hassles.
After two weeks of not sleeping, barely eating and working 15-20-hour days, I went to see a doctor. It isn’t a secret I have some medical issues with anxiety and high blood pressure, and then when external stressors pile up, things get easily overwhelming. It starts to affect my body, and comes out as 36-hour headaches, digestive problems, extreme blood pressure swings (190/90 isn’t unheard of). So I have to turn to modern medicine to get myself back to normal.
All of this is to say that possibly one of the greatest meals of my entire life, up there with Le Cirque and In-N-Out Burger and that place I went in Mexico with the prawns and Cafe Gray and those steakhouses where everything is a-la-carte and dudes punch other dudes, is microwaved pizza rolls and valium. And sitting in bed, in my jammies, in the afternoon, eating pizza rolls, watching tv on the internet is just about the best therapy out there.
