Anxiety 1, Voluptuous 0

I had a panic attack yesterday morning and had to come home from work. I lay down until it passed and then watched The Conjuring with a cup of tea and a banging headache.

It’s been a very stressful week so far and I’ve only worked one day of it. I refuse to blog about work, however, unless absolutely necessary so all I will say is: stop the world I want to get off. *Pukes everywhere* On that note, and I really shouldn’t be doing this when I could… Continue reading Magic
