I haven’t set foot in Walmart in years. The main reason being is I have issues with how they run their company. Low wages with no benefits and forcing manufacturers to sell so close to cost that they can barely survive. There is no need to go into it, you have likely heard it all before. If you haven’t you can Google it.
The other reason is it puts my anxiety into a place where I can’t control it. It is too bright, too loud, too much visual stimulation, too many smells of chemicals and perfumes and too many people. Too much everything. My daughter needed to go to a shoe store in the mall to get shoes for her prom that is coming up in June and I thought while I was there I would venture into Walmart to find a knitting loom. Thankfully my daughter was with me or I don’t think I would have been able to do it. I found what I wanted and got out of there really fast but it left its mark. I am still not stable from two days ago and I probably should not have gone at all but the mall is at the other end of the city and I have no plans to go that direction for the year or so. I am still shaky and my heart beating all bippity, boppity. bop, bop, bibbity. I am also cold. Another sign of anxiety.
Anyway, I am on my days off now. It is time for a bath then bed.
I did get my loom. I have no idea how it works.
