Well, the test results are in. I do not have a thyroid problem.
This is a good thing. But it's also a bit disappointing. It'd be nice to be able to blame my low energy level on something like that, to pin it down and be able to explain it, and even better to be able to treat it. Oh well.
I have an odd mixture of relief and disappointment. Hmm.
On the other hand I can now put it behind me and get on with life. Oh well.
Well, it's not thyroid disease or whatever. And it's not a bunch of other things, he ran a bunch of tests on me.
- stress - poor eating habits - lack of exercise
Those are the three big candidates. I actually don't eat all that poorly, so I don't think it's that. I get almost no exercise, but that's nothing new and it never left me so drained before. So I'm guessing it's primarily stress, which would make sense, considering the state of my life.
I need a good way to permanently remove stress. Maybe an operation. Or maybe that's why most people my age go get wasted every night. Can't blame 'em. Oh well, that shit's not for me.
So... gotta just keep chugging along I guess. Sigh. So tired. :/
Current Mood: exhausted
Current Music:Billy Joel - Say Goodbye to Hollywood
I'm going to bed early every night this week if at all humanly possible. Considering taking benadryl if that's what it takes to get me to sleep. Yes, I know it's not healthy, but I have been having minor allergy attacks anyway, it's not entirely unwarranted. And I'm only taking a couple before bed. If I can't sleep. So I'll be taking two I guess. :P
For my other New Year's Resolution I've decided to be more bitter, cynical, and morbid. There's not enough of that in the world.
For kicks I decided to diddle with the idea of creating mood icons. Here are some "sketches". They're rough, as I did them in maybe 10 minutes, and with a mouse, as it's all I've got. Still, I think there's potential there. They show more emotion and personality than most of the icons I think. Obviously the final results would be smaller. ( check 'em outCollapse )
