Down and Down

I thought I was past this. I woke up today relieved that I was finally migraine free, but was hit with the realisation that my mood was far from good. Due to a combination of putting pressure on myself and feeling like I've let people down I started to descend into a mood I thought was in the past - very stressed out and rather panicky. Rather panicky became very panicky and unfortunately we have yet another day when I've not made it into work.

This really does upset me, but I need to step back and stop beating myself up and realise that set-backs will happen and that I need to stop setting myself up for a fall. I'm still not feeling great, but have taken some Ibuprofen to stop my stress headache becoming another bloody migraine and have done my best to try and chill out today.

Breakfast was very minimal in effort as I was more in need of a cuddle than food, but luckily Hague provided both.

A huge mug of chocolate tea (still no milk....) a banana and a couple of Alpen Light bars. Actually, I really do need to try the chocolate tea with milk, I bet it tastes lovely, although I normally have it black.

As Hague was all prepared for the night shift I failed to attend, he'd made me a huge cous cous quiche and so half of that was perfect for tea, served up with some salad and roast potatoes. Nice comfort food, and he certainly knows how to make a truly wonderful roasted spud!

As my mood hasn't really got any better today, and rather teary seems to have been the general feeling of the day, Hague has excelled himself with looking after me. He made my dinner, and then offered to make me some magic pancakes. I know I've already had my B choice, but syns are there for using, and what better way to use them on a big pile of nom that will cheer me up?

They were made with apple crumble Shape Delights 0% yogurt, 35g of porridge oats and a couple of eggs. Topped with 0% greek yogurt and a tablespoon of honey. Utterly delicious, and such a filling treat too. Due to the stressy/panicky ickyness of today, my stomach is also feeling the effects, so for the rest of the day I'll be sticking to some fluids.
