While bicycling to work today, I became intimately acquainted with a brick wall via my knee. Big oof. Lost a day's work (no way I was gonna be able to hike twenty minutes to work) and a good pair of jeans today. Should be all right to limp to work tomorrow morning, but the nausea that swept me immediately after the accident has me concerned. Bruised bone? Minor shock? Dunno. Bad timing, too, since I'm low on groceries and today is the weekly work-provided lunch.

also, teostra won't drop its frigging elder dragon gem and i can't craft my level 3 artillery charm for my chargeblade/gunlance, grrrrr

The meds that keep me semi-functional are the meds that prevent me from donating blood to keep someone else alive. Which sucks, honestly.

Thinking about that makes it hard for me to just B+.
I've gone through domestic notes and I've not found any references to psych medications excluding you as a donor. But then again these things change from place to place. And i guess maybe your specific one is troublesome for some reason? Welp
In addition to the SSRIs, I'm on beta blockers to help me sleep at night and keep me from freaking out over minor stresses all day. Norway does have fairly strict regulations for most things though, and I'm pretty sure blood donation is on that list.

I also take antipsychotics as a sleep aid! Which naturally makes lots of people uncomfortable when I mention it, but they really do help and only backfire every now and then.

Get it checked out. Immediate, heavy nausea is a big warning flag for bone injuries.

She just observed the blood under the microscope, my red cells die comparatively quick... I'm still not convinced that that means what she thought it meant.

Had some interesting, possibly quite rad dreams last night but there was a lot of noise this morning and I was already forgetting them when I woke up. Both times. I think one may have involved tabletop gaming? I dunno. I've entirely forgotten what little I remembered, now.

Also I ran out of meds whilst away visiting family, and realised that I'd signed on to the automatic script-filling service at my local pharmacy, which means I don't have a copy of my own prescription for use at any other chemist. Whoops. Going to see some doctor up here tomorrow morning, hopefully I don't have to pay through the nose. Back home they only cost me five bucks, crazily enough.



In happier news, it is page 400. How nice.

Sounds like bull tbh. Speaking as a guy who regularly looks at red cells under the microscope.

 I had once someone in the clinic enquiring about what one of these "esoteric healers" had said about her son's blood. I had to explain gently that the whole idea didnt make much sense (and the pictures were clearly fake)

But the idea that the body is a mechanical entity that just needs a little grease to run smoothly is so tempting.

Veal is quite depressing, yes, but "lamb" as a term for meat gets stretched to apply to as large an age range as the seller can get away with. There's a lot of adolescent/adult meat that gets marketed as lamb because that's what sells. ...And also because some people legitimately don't know what the word "mutton" even means...

And even when the "within first year" official distinction of lamb is actually adhered to, there's nothing requiring the same awful living standards of veal.


Still though, veggies are usually a bit less ethically confusing. Usually.

Been feeling unwell of late. More so than usual anyway.

Constantly feel tired and sore, have had some odd chest pains that last a brief while and then stop, near constantly feeling hungry and hollow even when I've just eaten a meal. I've also been struggling to focus on things lately.

Some of it's probably just my depression acting up or the result of me being on a higher dosage of antidepressant, but some of the sore joints and the chest pains are kinda troubling.

Y'kno wut? I'm afraid of my family dying. Disproportionately.

I dealt with a lotta lot of death and such when I was a little kid, and I realized today that I worry basically every time they go out that a car is going to hit them as soon as they leave my sight or they'll fall in the pool and drown or some other highly unlikely absurdity. I dwell on it and mentally prepare myself for it, even. Get ready for a call at all hours of the night. That sort of thing.

Intellectually I know it's silly, but it makes me sort of sad. I live in a perfectly safe neighborhood, probably more so than most in the area, even. Don't think I've ever talked about it before now, or even acknowledged that it's not normal.

Knee aches considerably less today, still a little stiff around bends and stairs. Survived the hike to, from, and beyond work to the sushi store without much trouble, so it seems to be on the mend. Not really sure how expensive healthcare things are here in NZ sans health insurance (all I've got is traveler's health insurance, dunno what qualifies for that), and from my American background, just Going to the Doctor for a Thing You Want Checked is generally a Thing You Do Not Do.

On the bright side, my girlfriend's mom is an x-ray technician, so I know who to talk to about getting it zapped if I decide I need that!

In other news:
I bid on and won a pair of small PC towers for cheap (inspired a bit by whomever's tale of finding the free alleyway garbage pc), $60 each, with modest but respectable specs. I bid on one of them for my gal pal, but she politely declined it yesterday after learning they have no wifi cards and there's no going back on the bid. Maaaaah, I'll find something to do with it. Hacker attacker PC and Kiwi Factorio server?

Maybe I'll check the freaky Jesus tech shop to see if they've got a Linux-friendly wifi dongle. Or the PB tech next to it. And before you call me out on it, they've got a menorah in the window, it's cluttered to heck and back, there's a large screen monitor displaying proverbs next to the menorah, and there's some kind of Christian Rock playing at all times. The front door is open, but roped off, you ask for what you're looking for and escorted through the wastes to the thing you seek.

Also, they have a SHALOM van in the back.

Henderson is frigging weird, man.

Always fun finding out that you're not quite as "over" someone as you thought you were. Gotta make sure you don't get too used to not hurting.
