Killer Flies Part 1

I must preface this post by saying that I live in an apartment building, in downtown (read- no wilderness, lawns etc near me) WAY up high in a 42 floor building. This will all make sense to you guys in a bit. There are con/pros of living in the city center, but I'm a creature of habit, so there are many things I like about this place- familiarity being one of them. Another reason I like this area (convenience to things nearby etc) is that unlike my families' house which has a killer garden, is by a baseball field, and a private community lake etc, THERE ARE NO BUGS!!!! You obviously get the random fly, ladybug or something outside, or if you go to the HUGE center park by the river- yes, you will get swarmed. But NOT in a concrete reinforced rectangular GREEN (wtf- they painted it dark green!) building in the MIDDLE of the Downtown area. This is supposed to be one of the perks (in my opinion) of living here. I AGAIN must point out that I am ABOVE the 30th floor. The windows are screened and you can't remove the mesh, and the windows do not open all the way. In short, if I wanted to jump-I could not.

I noticed BLACK spots on my ceilings 2 days ago. I looked closer and saw it was a fucking HUGE fly. I let it slip, because if I thought about to much I'd get grossed out. I then noticed 2 more flies. I am talking STEROID growth hormone mutant flies. And they just sat there. Only 2 flew into the lights and windows. I then noticed THREE 3 in my living room/TV area. THREE! That makes 6 flies. How the F*#! did they get here. And furthermore, WHY SO MANY? It freaked me out so so much. And these guys are fat and huge. I of course get that anxious panicked feeling in the pit of my stomach that makes me want to ignore the problem and pretend it's not there, for hopes that I am hallucinating. Do I have a fly nest somewhere? I have a huge phobia of killing bugs and then picking them up for fear they will start to twitch or attack me. I managed to kill 3 yesterday (one was so traumatizing) and I don't know if I actually got it in the cup and into the hallway. There were 2 on my bedroom ceiling last night- now they are gone. 2 in my living room. I will take a picture. They also are arrogant assholes! They don't fly around when you come near then, and start whacking them with a rolled up copy of INSIDE FITNESS magazine. They are cocky. Or really sluggish due to their mutant steroid size. It's freaking me out!!!!

I have today off of work, and my weekend buddy put in a request to have Friday off too- long weekend, but I am BROKE. We are doing groceries etc. Headed to gym now. I am getting really depressed over my over-eating, which causes me to over eat. Vicious cycle. I feel so self conscious right now. Too much worry anxiety and stress. I also sprained my ankle, re-twisted it yesterday, and my right leg is totally messed. Hurts more than I'd like to admit.

Off to the gym. Ugh. Will post more later. Comment please, with any advice!!!
Saw CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS and EVERYONE should see this movie! So funny, and a great message. Saw it 3D Imax and it was sooo worth it!
