Failing Systems

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a ‘here is what I did and this is how I feel about it’ post, so here goes: Nothing and very little.

It’s been a fairly stressful last week and a half and the lack of sleep combined with an emotional rollercoaster ground me down, and that has allowed the sickness to creeeeeep in. I took a couple days off work last week and have spent most of my recent evening laying on the couch and the switching over and laying in the other side of the couch, this, so I can breathe out of each of my nostrils alternatively. The last three or four nights I’ve gotten little sleep due to a persistent dry cough that throws me into REM shattering convulsions. Other than that I’m doing great though. I did go see the doctor today though. I normally wouldn’t go to the doctor for a mere cold, but this has gone on for over a week and I’m my sleep debt is increasing to a level I’m not comfortable with. He prescribed me some codeine lace cough syrup. I hope this helps. I also discussed with him this issue. He’s doing some blood work but suspects it’s my endocrine system, which has effectively failed me since I was 15 years old, and may be the reason for low blood sugar and also connected to why I’ve been getting sick so much lately.

  1. well, my dad & 2 of his siblings have something called hemochromotosis. few people have heard of it, but it’s actually really common – but only Celtic descendents carry it, and both your parents would have to be carriers. it causes your blood to store up iron to toxic levels… my dad had weird sugar things before he discovered it.
    but like I said, your mom would have to have some Celtic blood somewhere to even consider it.
