  • Scholar Owl’s therapy – he said he wants to go to public school next year, so I’ll need to figure out how that process works
  • I didn’t let Tuxedo Cat go to the school dance tonight because the boys have all been fighting non-stop this week, him included
  • Tuxedo Cat continued his nonsense tonight and landed himself an extra evening of dishes, which made him angry but seriously this antagonizing each other just to get the other one going needs to stop

Notes

  • Tylenol finally addressed the pain
  • Mom & Dad were fighting again, it was Dad’s turn to cook but he refused and went to bed, Mom tried to pass the buck on me while they were babysitting my brother’s kids – she told me I could feed my kids whatever, but when 7pm rolled around and I told my boys we were having leftovers, she brought in my brother’s kids to eat… and then she tried to tell me some dumb thing about how Dad was pissed that I left an ashtray on his desk, so I apologized about it and he said he wasn’t mad at me… so yeah, sick of this shit
  • my therapist asked me if I thought my parents were aware that they do this and I don’t think they are, I think they are so mired in the shit that is their marriage that they don’t see who is getting caught in the crossfire – which only makes me more aware of what’s happening with my boys and how the cycle is repeating
  • It just occurred to me today that the past couple of days I have been smelling oddball, out of place scents (like back in the old apartment I would smell burning paper for no reason, the last two days I’ve been smelling burnt plastic and perfume that no one else smells) – my old therapist asked me if I had a neuro test done for this, something about the brain or whatever, and I said no but today I had a bad migraine and now I’m wondering if these two things are connected at all so I guess I need to start documenting that to find out – like is it part of my migraine aura?

  1. I remember the days when my boys were young and they argued about everything! Thank goodness they stopped as they became adults! You may be right about the aura! My youngest son had an aura of scents when his migraines were really, really bad when he was younger.

    1. That’s good to know actually. It’s hard sometimes to sort out symptoms when you have multi disorders. It’s an upsetting experience for me and I have a hard time just chalking it up to hallucinations. This isn’t like the other stuff I’m used to dealing with.
