This was quite the weekend filled with anxiety and migraines. (My propranolol seems to still be working, but the stress was possibly too much for it this weekend.)
Yesterday I stayed home from gaming (boo!) and went with Mark and his parents to pick up a few things for the apartment and look for bookshelves. We ended up with a new rug for the kitchen, a couple of baskets for the bathroom shelves, and I decided to finally splurge and try the Kate Somerville blemish banisher kit. That is one splurge I highly recommend making if your skin is “particular” like mine – just two days in and it’s already clearer.
Today, I had to call 911 on our downstairs neighbours. They were going at it again – this time it sounded like possibly two females and a male. They were screaming at each other and crying and there were the sounds of things being thrown or slammed, so I decided enough was enough and made the call. I don’t want to get involved in other people’s affairs, but I’ve heard children in or near that apartment so I didn’t want to take any risks. Any domestic violence is something that needs to be reported. The police showed up reasonably quickly and things mostly quieted down after, so I’m not sure what happened. One of the women was on the phone yelling at someone to come home and crying hysterically later, but it didn’t sound dangerous. I’m on edge now though – we’re not going to let it keep happening.
On top of that, while I was making supper tonight my dad decided to leave snarky comments on my Facebook wall about how my sister had a baby and he thought he should tell me because “it doesn’t seem I’ve noticed”. My mother called him out on the fact that we had already congratulated her, and he deleted his comment shortly after. He continues to plague me – I’m so far away from him and should be able to just put him out of my mind, but for some reason I can’t. I’m hoping that therapy helps with that. It’s sad, but I’d rather he not be a part of my life, than a cause of so much anxiety. We shall see how it goes, I suppose.
