The Primal Scream

Today has been a frustrating day. Everything just keeps going wrong. And my Internet is slow. That's not such an usual thing for me with my wonderful dial-up server--yes that's all I can get out here in the sticks, but there are days when even what is 'normal' slowness can make me want to tear out my hair in frustration. I just spent the past twenty minutes screaming at my screen to hurry up. Have any of you ever experienced that type of melt-down. It makes you feel quite insane afterwards when you think about your reactions. It's not like it made anything move quicker, or work better... yet in some small way it makes you feel better. Maybe it's the venting of the frustration in a 'primal scream' sort of way. As I sit here and type this I am laughing because the mental image of myself as I sat here screaming at my computer is quite funny--and I am quite relieved. Maybe there's something to that primal scream therapy after all.
