I finally, after much avoidance, talked to my advisor, the head of counseling and the disability service staff member about how to best deal with my overload of classes. (I should have known the tears would be endless!)
I was a mess! Tear after tear, there was no stop to my overflowing emotions. I went to class looking like I had just lost a relative or found out I was dying or kicked out of school or something super tragic. Instead, it was just my upset with myself that caused the nonstop tears.
The tears kept flowin’ and somehow I kept goin’.
I went to my advisor. I went to the head of counseling. I went to class. I went back to the head of counseling and also, to the disability service staff member. I went home, briefly. I went to the gym. And eventually, home again.
The best way to describe my day is to say it was a rollercoaster of tears. Up and down. Back and forth. All over the place halopazoo! At the end of my emotional rollercoaster, my eyelids were puffy,red,and swollen. I looked like shit.
The disability service staff member recommended I watch GLEE. Her thought was that something light hearted and funny would make my tears stop and put a smile on my face. True, that I was happier after first having gone to the gym for a few hours, then watching GLEE and finally singing my heart out, for 45 minutes, in my room.
GLEE is a show that lifts my spirits and brings my happy, singing self back to life. Each week there is one song I cannot stop singing. This week it was “Forget You” sung by Gwyneth Paltrow! It makes me want to get up and dance and also, sing!
Thank you GLEE! Also, God and the school staff for making life just a bit more manageable and enjoyable again!
Check out “Forget You”! (Maybe you’ll feel like dancing too!) :
