today, i had my first huge challenge since i started my medication.
i had to deal with the horrific nightmare that is united airlines again...remember how they lost our bags over thanksgiving? and they promised to reimburse us $400 for things we had to buy and the inconvenience? yeah, they've decided that they don't need to honor that promise even though we already spent that money and sent them all of the original receipts as directed.
soooo obviously, when i received a letter instead of the check i was expecting (and really needing - that could pay for a month of counseling and psychiatrist appointments), i got pissed. i called them, and their customer service is maddening, so i got even more frustrated. bottom line - they're not budging.
buuuuuut i didn't throw anything! i didn't scream! i yelled at them and gave them a HUGE piece of my mind, but that's fairly normal, i think. i didn't hit or kick anything. and i've actually calmed down after less than an hour!
this is GIGANTIC for me. such a huge difference from a month ago.
i've still got a lot of work to do, and my medication still needs to be tweaked a little here and there, but i'm on my way.
sorry this has turned into a "how i'm coping with the problem in my brain" blog, but that's what i need it for right now. i can't wait til the day i'll be able to come here more often and write about other things.
