I almost forgot a big obvious. I know I get horribly depressed in the middle of summer. My dad does the same thing just before Christmas and tries to ruin winter. Or, he used to, anyway. I can be in crisp AC all summer, but just KNOWING it’s a sweltering hellhole outside messes me up. That part is predictable… Maybe even that Seasonal Depression disorder, since it’s reliable like Old Faithful.
Anyway, if I’m on my toes, I can counteract that and not let it get me down too bad. I’m not using it as an excuse.
I also forgot to mention that part of my “starts out subtle but quickly grows out of hand” quirks/problems” is that I stop taking my medicines on time. One of which is an anxiety medication, so you can imagine how much worse that makes things once it starts wearing off.
I put my foot down and made myself take my medicine before work today, lol. Hopefully I’ll remember second doses before I fall asleep tonight. Of course, I have to do things the brazenly stupid way. I did that on a completely empty stomach and went right to work after. Scratch that, I’d had maybe one cup of coffee, lol. Thankfully I only had one moment where it made me dizzy enough to tip forward… and no nausea. I put all my points in intestinal constitution. Anyway, it’s a start.
Also, we’re about to try and cause a yeast die off and rebalance our internal critters/fungus. This involves eating healthier in general, so I’m in. I think I’ve always been fighting an internal yeast problem to some degree, and I’m hoping a hard reset will give me back the natural energy a person is supposed to have. Of course, we will be careful about it. Hospitalization is expensive.
Hopefully the person at work that keeps bringing me home baked vegan goodies will lay off the sugar for a bit though, lol. I can’t say no to fresh vegan banana bread.
