I don't know how

Lately, I feel about as interesting as a piece of cardboard. I've been too tired to think very clearly. I'm kicking myself for the stuff I didn't get done this weekend, but at least we did keep busy. It will stay that way for awhile, and there will be less time for me to feel worried and useless. So now, the feelings come back to me while I'm at work and it's quiet. It really isn't fair to myself or the people around me, but mostly I keep it subdued.
For some reason, one of my boobs has been tingly, sorta itchy from the inside the last couple days. What's up with that? It looks normal enough, and if it was a skin irritation from detergent or lotion or something, why wouldn't it affect both boobs? Who knows. Maybe it's a very late growth spurt... heh, I could hope but probably not. So yeah... just don't mind me if I have to grab my breasts more than usual. Good thing I usually don't have people very closeby while I'm at work.
Sometimes I think I'm almost a hypochondriac, but then I think that really I'm not, I'm just a worrier. If I was, I suppose I would want to be called a hypochondriac because maybe there would be some sort of relief in saying what my affliction was. I don't really want to know what all is going on inside me. I'm chalking it up to anxiety.
I don't think this is going anywhere worthwhile. Cardboard, I tell ya.

A corrugated piece of cardboard or like the piece of cardboard you find in a package of underwear? Because I usually feel like the piece you find shoved down in the toe of a new shoe.

An itchy boob means...your going to receive money.

An itchy boob means that you're going to win a free wheelbarrow full of Jello. Everyone knows that.

Aw c'mon, give yourself more credit. Cardboard is interesting. Just ask a homeless person. :)

If it's any consolation, my boobs hurt all the time and I am always feeling myself up because of that. Sort of a "excuse me, nipple, could you please stop sticking out so much, you're hurting me" squeeze.

I know exactly what you mean, I'm constantly having to adjust boobs. Granted they aren't mine, but I think the point still stands.

Thanks to all the above for the boob humor/advice/sympathy! :)

see, no discussion that involves boobs is dull, cardboard or not.

Re. the boob issue . . . arggh, I kinda know what you mean -- I never do the whole "self exam" thing cuz I'm scared I'll find something. Logical? No. But it's just one of those things.

Maybe the tingly boob thing is just a result of all the stress you've been under recently, what with the big move and all . . . ?
