My Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Yesterday was a VERY. BAD. DAY.
I've been under a lot of stress lately. As crazy as it sounds, I actually don't even realize it until I start getting extereme headaches that border on migraines and I can feel the stress in my neck. Yesterday was one of those days. It seemed like nothing was going right. I was hurting people's feelings (not on purpose!). There wasn't enough time in the day. It was just one thing after the next. All day long.

There were several things that almost led to tears.

I grabbed my computer bag out of the front seat of my car only to get my bad thumb caught in the strap. It hurt. BAD. I had tears in my eyes. I was afraid to pull back the band-aid and look. I'll spare you the details, but it's definitely going to add to the healing process.

I thought retail therapy would help. I finally went through my closet several weeks ago and got rid of EVERYTHING that gets on my nerves when I wear it. It actually wiped my closet clean. Now that winter is lingering, it doesn't seem like it was the brightest decision I've ever made, but that's a whole different story. I couldn't find anything I liked at the first three stores I went in. So, I decided to venture to the mall.

That's when real tragedy struck.

I was walking into the mall when my phone flew out of my hand and landed about a foot in front of me on the sidewalk. Not sure exactly what happened because it all happened fairly quickly. What I do know is that it didn't seem to hit the ground that hard, but when I picked it up, the glass was shattered. Not just a crack or two. More like 72.

I don't even want to admit all the relationship mishaps me and my iphone have been through. And I don't want to admit how many I've had in my possesion. But this isn't the first run-in I've had. If you're interested, you can read about the time my iphone jumed in the toilet here. Or how I couldn't live without it here, here, or here.

The point is, I know it's a "thing" and I shouldn't be as attached to it as I am. But the fact of the matter is, I am. I love it with every fiber of my being, but I do know that we cannot continue this relationship like this. It's just not healthy!

There's no need to justify it. Bad days just suck and when they snowball, oh goodness ... hope the new days brings happier times.

Sorry that you had such a bad day. They do happen for the most part, but it sounds like yours was up there on the worse scale! I get bad migraines when I get stressed as well so I understand.

Ok, first I will say that i have had days like this before and it will get better...eventually.
Second, If it's just the glass you can actually get that fixed instead of buying a new one(I know my hubby just had his fixed a an Apple store).
Third>>>YOU NEED AN OTTER BOX CASE!!!!! I can't even begin to tell you how many times mine has saved my phone!!!!
Hope everything gets better!

My God! - I too have these symptoms, which I have been putting down to needing new spectacles or less Excel spreadsheets, but I now realise it is work related stress. I come home with tension that Stressed Eric would be proud of and only bed rest (sanctuary) seems to reset the knots in my neck. I am working all week and sleeping all weekend. My mortgage has run off with my life and possibly my wife.
