1 Panic Attack
So, I had a panic attack at work today. Super sucked. Basically, there was a meeting of all the legal assistants in workers comp, my division, except for my coworker Nancy and I.

I’d metaphorically kill for a good Granny Smith Apple and some caramel or peanut butter. Or some grapes and cheese. Just… charcuterie fixing in general seem to be the craving. That and murder shows.

Had the ADHD testing done today in Maitland. 97 miles away. Ugh. Dr Fyffe didn’t even bother to meet me, which kind of pissed me off. I got assistant Joy who was nice enough, in an unflavored oatmeal kind of way.
