Do you go through life in pretty good spirits most of the time, and then wake up one morning and find that all day, things that have irritated you and been wisely tolerated or ignored are reminding you of themselves and making you hissy?
That’s the kind of day I’m having. I think it’s because a neck-migraine has been threatening since before I got out of bed. Coffee, food, dishwashing, and a mile walk in the serious cold haven’t made it go away; sometimes they do, which is one reason to put off taking medication as long as possible. Another is that medication has side effects I can do without, even though they aren’t extreme. Anyway, today’s affliction isn’t too intense so I haven’t medicated myself. I’ve remained hopeful that I’ll just forget about the slight discomfort, which is, when it does disappear on its own, exactly what seems to happen.
But I am kinda cranky.
Knowing this, I’m biting my tongue and keeping to myself.
The smart thing to do would be to take the pill and lie down. (I’ve already had something to eat and checked my diaper; now it’s nap time. These three simple remedies to crankiness work for children and adults alike.)
What do YOU do when you’re feeling bitchy?
