Oh hey, I had whole wheat pasta last night and it doesn't feel like a thousand knives are trying to tear their way out of my body.

So maybe the pizza problem is the fact that pizza places use flour with higher gluten content. Or it's a moderation thing. *shrug*

Dear self,
Seriously, no more pizza until you undergo allergy screening to see WTF is up so you can see if there's some alternative pizza that won't cause you to be absolutely miserable for 12-16 hours.
Urrrgh

Scrubbing Bubbles foam gives me one helluva headache.

Self,
God, you need to go to a doctor. Because your arm suddenly feel like it's been rubbed all over with sandpaper all the way down to the bone is really not a good thing, and this isn't the first time it's happend.

Sigh.

Self?

The fact that you're actually looking up what it takes to get your gender marker changed on your papers? Yeah. That says something. Maybe not quite waht it looks like on the outside, but something.

In other words, this semester, get your ass into therapy. Not the counseling center at school (though free, issues). Find someone in town who you can talk to and who won't act like Paula. At the very least, feel out getting on T cream.

Self,
Okay. So you're probably doomed to dentures no matter what. This is just a note in advance to say that, even though you CAN have a slightly-more-than-occassional soda now (esp. if in posession of a caffeine withdrawal headache that needs cured NOW), don't drink as much as you used to. Okay? Okay.

Keep calorie-laden fluids on hand for the first day of your period, because for the most part food? Yeah, not happening. Even chocolate gets a bit overwhelming after a few hours.

Self,
Start keeping a headache diary so you can pick up on triggers etc. START OF THIS: Not eating? BIG FUCKING TRIGGER. Good thing you found your headache meds today after losing them for ~2 months.

Self,
You+pizza=no sleep and most of a day spent in the bathroom. And no, this does need tested again. :(

You really do want to go on T, at least short term.

This doesn't make you any less of a girl on the days you are one, okay? A hormone doesn't take away your right to be femme.

Also? It might fix whatever the hell is going on your hormones right now without all the mixed feelings and issues you have with birth control.

So, therapy, get on that so you can get your letter, okay?

You feel much better if you shave your face once a week or more. Proven.

Yes, it really is that important. No, you cannot handle that first hour of classes on an empty stomach. Even if you're really nauseous when you get up, eat a few crackers or something. This has been tested many, many times and the results are always the same.

Self,
Oh self, you really, really do need six hours of sleep every night. Even if that sleep is interrupted for a few seconds when there's a noise or something, six hours with a few teeny breaks is a lot better than 4 or 5. Yes, you can get up and walk around and get stuff on less, but you really don't want to. Decline that cup of tea, shut off the internet, accept that you got as much done as you're getting done for the day, and turn out the lights even if roommate is still doing something six hours or more before you need to get up. Set aside all your anxieties about how you f'd up that paper or whatever, they'll still be there in the morning when you're fully rested to deal with them. You will be all the better for it in the morning.
