I'm in a foul mood...

Not sure why, possibly lack of sleep and being surrounded by morons, but I'm in a foul mood today.

More so than normal.

I could actually get up and punch the guy who sits outside/shares my office. I haven't punched anyone for decades.

So if today I seem more of a dissident towards ATS than I normally do and my posts are more full of angst than normal, that's why.

Not that you care.

First time I've felt like this at work for about 2 years. In my old job I used to cope by stabbing the computer screen with a pen, smashing up the keyboard and going out for a smoke - in one year I killed two screens and two keyboards. Unfortunately I have to lead by example in this position, so no uncontrolled behaviour and I no longer smoke.

What next... Before I explode?

I'm on 30mg Lansoprazole, which my doctor (polite word) cut to 15mg this month. So since Friday I've had 12 Zantac 75mg whilst they are waiting to re-prescribe me the higher dose.

Maalox, Gaviscon, Rennie... they don't touch the sort of acid that my stomach produces.

Maybe some calming nature music?

That's what my old boss told me to do when I got into trouble for racking up all those speeding fines. "stop listening to rage against the machine and get some music that has sounds of water falls and peaceful bird sounds".

Not me though, I won't be sedated! I'll go for the fire in the belly any day.

Hit the gym man or get a punchbag - seriously good stress relief.

Take rest of day off .. go to pub .. have a few ( or several ) drinks .. brawl .. chat up a few birds .. take one or two home to shag ...
Works wonders for ones morale .. failing that .. tell the world to sod off and carry on ..
Dont worry about it .. we all have days like that ..

I was about to do exactly what you suggested - minus the shagging bit as I'm a one woman man - but the MD has just gone home so I'm here until 4pm.

I'm going to get some food.

Cheers though.

" Not that you care."

We do.

We've all been there. In fact I'm there right now but won't go into details.

Stop, breathe and realize you are better than the guy you want to punch.

Hey! Your reply here reminded me to go take my morning pill of Nexium.

I avoided taking Nexium for several years when it was a prescription drug in the US and too expensive. But recently my GRAD was getting so bad I was concerned it would literally eat out my esophagus so I purchased some after having little effect from other, cheaper and home remedy products. I'm not one to do meds, but I was amazed after taking the first pill within a hour I have not had a single bout of burning, even when I bend down to pull weeds in the garden, etc. Complete relief after several days.

I'm the same - I don't even take paracetamol. But these acid inhibitors work well for my hiatus hernia. That feeling, waking up, half asleep, burning, agony.... Thank the lord for big pharmaceutical companies aye?

I think it is SO funny that the first thread I see on my ATS Live page is yours. I was driving in today and seriously had this same exact thought: "Wow, I'm in a really bad mood today. I just want to flip people off in traffic for driving like idiots and not looking when they're changing lanes"

I suffer from road rage as it is, but I rarely feel like I'm ready to yell or honk at idiots unless it's really warranted. Today I almost didn't care - luckily I kept it together long enough to get to where I was going.

Hang in there folks - maybe it's something in the air. Doesn't help that we got 4 inches of snow 10 days into April. (Shakes fist in air)

I am sorry that you have found yourself fully prepared to mangle someone's face today. That is never a pleasant feeling, especially when the conscious mind is aware that ones financial stability relies on not giving into that near overwhelming need. It rather puts one in a state of conflict, which in and of itself is not conducive to keeping ones cool.

All I can say, is that while punching someone in the face is indeed a cathartic experience, I find a good throttling to have far more long lasting effects on ones relaxation levels!

I think someone needs a hug and some death metal. the soothing sounds of screaming guitar and death growls will take the mean right out of you. Or, it may cause you to snap and kill everyone in sight. But whatever, you gave it a shot.

Just wait until 4:20.

It must be something that's going around today. I'm in one too. I got woke up by somebody watching a damn baseball game with the volume cranked. I tried to get back to sleep but no go with all the noise. So, off to get coffee. Somebody tried talking to me before I even got a sip and I actually growled at him. Like a dog. I hate getting woke up because I have insomnia and it's hard enough falling asleep and staying asleep anyway.

Thanks for the support. I have decided to go upstairs into the quietest room in the building and be alone!

a reply to: Krazysh0t

This is partly why I get angry - I am one of those disciplined people who actually wait until (probably exactly) 4,20pm when I get home! Never used to though.

One other thing you might want to keep in mind before you pop off... There's no Netflix in jail
