Hard same. I fully take advantage of people's stereotypical sexist assumptions about me if I think it will benefit me.

I get the exact same way, and it amazes me when I don't notice it; I've been dealing w/this since I was 11, you'd think it wouldn't come as a surprise anymore. But still, some months, I'm just like- "why is everyone pissing me off just by being in my general vicinity? ...ohhhhhhhh."

Having a schedule- yes! I find that the less I do that the less self-care I actually do, day-to-day.

I wish you minimal discomfort re: the lactose test. I have some kind of sensitivity there, but am not sure if it's to lactose or casein. My coworker is lactose intolerant though, and she tries to really be on guard about it.

I have heard that Train to Busan was really good! I tend to go more towards ghost stories than zombie stories when it comes to horror movies, but I might end up giving that a try this weekend.

I made it through the weekend! One thing i did not consider, though- chugging coffee w/dinner might not be the best thing for me stomach-wise. Ah, well. Roxane Gay was amazing (the interviewers first question: 'what do you think of this great hall we're in right now?' RG's answer: 'there are lots of paintings of white men.'), the march on Saturday was great (and Elizabeth Warren stopped by!), and the party that night at the library was a huge success.

Sunday I was in and out of consciousness the whole day, and nauseous from the coffee, and this week I feel like I'm pretty unmotivated overall, but that's because working on weekends always makes me feel like I just have no real break, and that gets to me.

Personal struggle/growth: I had to deal with an unexpected moment of envy/bitterness yesterday, that I sometimes direct at my (tall, thin, blonde, straight, always smiling, always seeming to have unlimited luck in life/work/etc.) coworker, which I know is my own issue and not hers, but also does make me want to be like, 'OMG you have xyz privileges and you need to be aware of that' sometimes, and I'm not actually going to say any of that to her, obviously. I was able to get over it fairly quickly though, so progress?

This is why I wish I had someone to take w/me when I have doctors appointments. Because I always feel like I need a minute to digest (heh) what they actually say, but (at least for me personally), I never take that minute and I always just roll with it.

I do wish, however, that there were a test I could take re: gluten intolerance that did not involve me actually ingesting gluten (and waiting for the migraine). In this case I really just want the test to make sure I'm not celiac, b/c in that case I would have to start examining non-food purchases for gluten as well.

The bladder thing is a good point. I think I'm going to hold off on trying any fasting, mainly b/c I don't have experience with it and don't know how my body will react, but I'm definitely going to try and focus on getting protein when I do eat. Thank you. :)

It's weird, because when I go through a particularly rough/stressful time, I don't tend to really feel the effects until a few days later. This used to baffle me, because it would seem to come out of nowhere. So now knowing what it is when it happens at least helps. But I will try to consciously just chill in Savasana for like 20 minutes and see if that helps, but with enough time built in so that if I do need to drift off for a bit, I can. Thanks. :)
