I stopped taking my melatonin last week and my fitbit and I think perhaps I should start taking it again!
My Sister and I, 1975
I am feeling mean and icky this week. My foray into fabulous japanese food on Saturday has left me with my normal GI issues. uhg. Yesterday I had to buy ugly expensive shoes, and I had to spend $70.00 !!! dollars on three pairs of socks. Yes, $70.00 for ugly socks to keep my legs from swelling up like balloons and eventually killing me. I’m packing in my head for our vacation. Two weeks is hard to pack for. Since we’re not staying in the same place the whole two weeks I don’t want to pack too much because there will be a lot of transporting. Two weeks worth of clothes & ugly shoes, and ugly socks is a lot of stuff.
I’m just aggravated and whiney about it. I hate that I can’t wear cute skirts, and shorts and cute shoes and that I spend all of the time and effort trying to be healthy and in shape and that eating a healthy meal of tasty food makes me sick for a couple of weeks. AND – I tweaked my med dosage again to try and get some of my energy back so now I’m back to the hearing in my right ear just randomly going completely out! Yesterday the battery in my hearing aide went out and I forgot and I walked around for hours pissed off that I couldn’t hear and waiting for my hearing to come back. At least that one I got to laugh about.It’s probably alzheimers affecting my memory. Then I’ll forget about these occasional weeks of self pity and aggravation that I drop into.
When my sad little radiated intestines are particularly bad my hands go icy for a long time. I don’t know why. Actually, my whole body temperature goes wacky. I know that my intestines literally become inflamed so maybe it’s a weird reaction to that. Whenever I feel like this I go back to the days of chemo when afterwards I would become so very cold and have to be wrapped in our lovely heating blanket. I would like my heating blanket today. Hopefully by the time I finish this I will have gotten all this out of my system and be cheerful again.
I have many things scheduled in the next few months. Tonight is The Ten Tenors concert at the Historic Valentine Theatre. I have my standing workouts on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. I have theoretical yoga on Wednesday. It’s only theoretical in that I keep missing it due to weather, illness and random issues. I have a painting class next thursday now. I have a maybe Zen Buddhist meditation class. I have vacation coming up. I have a jumping out of a plane schedule for June. Just things on my schedule. Sometimes I enjoy being busy, but then sometimes I stop and wonder where all of the months have gone.
Things that Creep me out!
- Toenails and fingernails, or any fragment of that are not attached to anything. This is why I cannot cut the dogs toenails.
- Mens beard shavings
- Facial hair on men who don’t seem very clean
- Any thing dead that use to be a live moving thing. Like dead bugs, dead animals, dead people. I would rather touch a live spider than a dead one.
- gristle (luckily no longer an issue for me)
- Sitting down on a toilet seat in a public restroom and finding it warm
- Unexpected things coming out of skin. In real life or in pictures.
Hmmm, that’s all I can think of right now, but I know I have a bunch of them! Things that you don’t know why when you look at them they make you feel all oooogy, but they do. I wonder about the similarities in 1,2,3 & 7. Traumatic childhood event maybe?
I really want to try Vaping! It’s all the fault of Nina! No nicotine of course, just the flavors.
Let’s end with a picture shall we?
