i dealt with this a lot in my last pregnancy. the pregnancy began in april 2012, so at that point, i was **addicted** to watching coverage of the upcoming presidential election. ...not many sad news stories arise during political coverage, but i was such a mess over the few that did, that i had to cut myself off.

"donna summer died?" sob, sob, whimper, sob.

i was also *very* quick to anger. i will never forget how justified i felt, calling my husband-- at work-- in a RAGE because he dared to eat my leftover pizza. how completely selfish!! there were a lot of expletives thrown around, and i think i threatened bodily harm.

this time-- eh! not so much. i've been pretty even-keeled, and it makes no sense-- i've been waaaay sicker this time around. my going theory is that my 14 month old is just a great distraction, and his running around must be helping me keep it together.
