Oh, That Sneaky Hate Spiral

If you don't know what I'm referring to, here ya go: hyperboleandahalf.blogsp
I've been clawing myself out of mine for the past couple of weeks, only to find myself back in the darn thing.
For example: Catching my reflection in the mirror - hm, is my melasma getting worse? Maybe I should research how to get rid of it. Then getting a) super-depressed about the fact that it can't be cured and treatments are $$$$ and b) super-PO'd that I should have to give a *hoot* about it anyway. (Yeah, go ahead and stare - you got $4,000 for ruby refraction laser treatments? BITE ME.)
Or: Having to listen for the 1,000th time about so-and-so's magical "diet," or their lament that they lost 60+ lbs using HCG but it's all come back - and silently gritting my teeth because promoting healthy weight loss to folks like this is like banging your head against the wall. REPEATEDLY.
And, as an anthropology major, you can imagine my impotent rage at the whole "Paleo" fad. Also - buttered coffee.
RAGE RINSE REPEAT.
HOWEVER. I'm leveling off again, but at a loss as to what my issue was! Other than the usual, not really feeling stressed or overwhelmed...but maybe there is some subconscious thing going on. Must ponder.
Once I'm out of the spiral. Maybe just enjoy the swirl? :)
