So today I had the good fortune to enjoy a real cupcake, courtesy of Leanne from Get Frosted!┬áLet me just say – a muffin with icing may technically be a cupcake, but zowie, that’s just ersatz compared to these.

Mmmmmmm. Chocolate cupcake, caramel filling, and real handmade buttercream icing.

Yeah. It was was as good as it sounds. Oh and those little things around the cupcakes? White and dark chocolate mini-tier cakes.


Worst. Nightmare. Ever.

What a rough weekend. First I was doing battle with one of the servers. (I finally won, by the way.) Then I forgot to take my pills not once but twice, and that left me really messed up. Then finally I went to a family function, where the lack of sleep, abundance of stress, and lack of medication rendered me very vulnerable to overstimulation, and between kids, TV, and just general loudness, I crumbled and started to fall apart. So finaly I just had to escape to somewhere quiet. Had a brief lie-down on the sofa, then thought a nice hot bubblebath might relax me…

So this isn’t the first time I forgot to take my pillz – it’s hard to remember ever darn day. And the cryptospam seems to have a built-in reminder mechanism – if you miss a day, then the following day there are dizzy spells, nervous twitches and shakes, and general heebie-jeebieness. ┬áHard to miss, really.

Yet I managed to completely forget yesterday, in spite of the brain-addling reminders.

Every time I’d get an attack of the dizzies, or a wave of nervous twitching or whatever, I was either in the middle of something, or didn’t have access to the drugs. Like, I spent a lot of yesterday at work, and was too busy to stop and take pills. Then I was at the grocery store for a bit. Then when I finally got home, I had a rest. Kept forgetting.
