The past few weeks have been some of the most stressful/worst weeks that I can remember. I was kicked out of my own home because of someone elses pride, my family turned their backs on the love of my life, I broke my gaiwan and ran out of tea among many MANY other terrible
things that I just don't feel like bringing up right now.
I literally became so overwhelmed with stress and anxiety that I had a breakdown (minutes before having to go in to work... of course!) and was considering checking myself into a hospital.
Saturday afternoon was the first day that I feel things are going back to normal, a few of the problems were resolved and my stressed level dropped dramatically ... To top it off I recieved my order of tea (every type imaginable!), my new gaiwan, my new teacup, tea tray, strainer, OTTI teas and my tiny yixing pot from Victoria all at the same time! My girlfriend cooked dinner and we decided to eat outside... it was getting dark so I lit some candles and it suddenly (and unexpectedly) became a very romantic dinner!
I've been drinking 2010 imperial TGY all yesterday and today (it's wonderful, with a floral scent and a buttery sweet flavor that lingers on the tongue).
I can finally breath without that pain in my chest and knots in my stomach.
Not sure why I'm posting this, I think I just needed to get it out of my system
I will continue to live and to sip.
