Like everyone else, I'm having an awful week. My ability to cope has not risen to meet my stress. My kid and her attempts at power struggles, my work and "other duties", it's my f-ing birthday and I can't seem to plan anything for it, having scheduled downtime interrupted (see kid and other duties). My inability to says "too much input, need to stop" and disappoint people.

I'm lucky enough to have counseling benefits and will be taking advantage of them, but I really want to lie down in my apartment and listen to the Smiths, eat ice cream, play video games and deny responsibility for anything.

Thanks for letting vent and psych myself to deal with this crappy, temporary phase of my life.
