but whisky is quicker. God, how I have missed wine. I stopped drinking 7 months ago due to a diabetic diagnosis. I needed to get my A1C numbers under control so i could have surgery. They were around 9 or 10, I got on medication, stopped drinking and got it down to 6.2 for surgery. I completely changed the way I was eating and what I was eating. Boring as hell, but I did it. Same foods everyday.
Yesterday was another crappy day, metal flew off a truck in the wind and struck my car, damaged the bumper. I love my car, the convertible is a big part of my mental health, washing and waxing it is a mindfulness practice I enjoy. Plus I use it a lot for my photography when I go for long drives and to take pictures around the back roads. Always nice to get the roof down and enjoy loud music and the wind in your hair. So my car is usually super clean and in excellent condition, now it has a chunk out of the bumper, no enough to for and insurance claim, just enough to be expensive. An of course that is all I can see when I look at it. UGH! I am trying to convince myself it could have been worse, it did not kill me, the car took the hit. I did not get a flat, it did not damage the turbo innercooler or anything else. It is not working I am stuck in why, why me. This sucks
Anyway, there has been a series of things like this and I just cannot seem to get a break from them. Tonight, I grabbed a bottle of wine from the LCBO and drank it. I ate pizza and enjoyed every minute of it. How I have missed wine, the taste, the smell, the flavours. The feeling of being free, relaxed and not giving a crap. As Ozzy sings, "wine is fine, but whisky is quicker" I prefer the wine but have to agree whisky is quicker. Next time a few shot of whisky. Maybe some moonshine? Whatever, it is an escape for a while. I know it is not the answer, but it is an escape and I need that right now. Locked down, people being jerks, no family contact, stuck at home, crap happening and being constantly shit on by life. Well fuck you life, I can still get away from it all for a short period of time anyway!

Does anyone have experience with restless leg issues? Of course my legs are jumpy and tingling off and on and that triggers my health anxiety, which then means I am super jittery and tingling all over. Maybe my vitamins and minerals are low I did have weight loss surgery 2 years ago and I don't take my vitamins like I should and I am anemic have been for years. Of course it does not help that I...
