I had to google dickwolves because I had no idea what you guys were talking about. Extra glad I don't read that shitty comic now, though.

Ugh, campus is a fucking mess in terms of floor plans. NOTHING connects/loops together or is the same floor to floor. Fuck, even half the staircases don't go up all the floors, and on the top floor there's no hallway that connects its four sections and thus you have to go down a floor to go from one end to the other (guess where 90% of my classes are?). I've been having to leave fifteen minutes early just to get to class on time because I inevitably get lost.

I believe the proper way is to shove a chopstick/knitting needle into your nose as far as you can, and twirl it around until complete bliss.

Had a few days of being unable to access the site. AGAIN. Are you trying to tell me something, CosCom?

I had my doctors appointment, and I do not have Hypothyroidism. I left with a prescription for anti-depressants.

It was...unexpected. To say the least.

Though ultimately not surprising.
I'll have to give my doctor a call tomorrow to talk more about what I should do about the continued problems I am having with fatigue and other such business. My best assumption is that my various 'symptoms' have been from untreated depression then, by the looks of things.

In a way I am sorta disappointed it was Hypothyroidism because I had to have my blood drawn with that huge tubey needle thing. I cried. Now I feel put off that I cried and got my blood drawn for nothing. I know it's not REALLY for nothing. But it sucked anyway.

I'm always amazed by Meghan's sisters complete lack of life skills.

Her parents are giving her a new car. (Used, but new to her). She's taking the bus to upstate NY tomorrow, and driving home on Sunday in the car. She needed to get the plates off the old car, as they are switching the registrations.
She asked Meg to help her but since the bolts were rusty it was almost impossible. Meg sprayed them with WD-40, told her to wait a bit and then had to leave for work.

An hour later, she goes down, looks at the plates and comes back up to ask me how to take them off. I hand her the screw driver, she looks confused. I take her downstairs and try to show her. End up doing it myself.

That sucks. I know how that feels, though. I can't get my bodyfat % to drop despite working out constantly, so I got my metabolism tested and I had a blood test done. The results are that now I know my metabolism is super high AND I actually have hyperthyroidism (ie, it is faster than normal). lkjflgksdh

I've had a lot of stress over the last couple of years so that could be it. I'm also getting a sleep study done to make sure it has nothing to do with that. It doesn't matter how long I sleep for, I wake up exhausted and way more tired than I was when I went to bed...

Maybe you've got uh sleep issues.

That's sort of frightening. In a very sad way.

I'd be genuinely concerned about how she'd manage without the presence of family to help her.

I am not trying to lose weight, the only reason it comes up is because the weight came on very quickly and I didn't really change anything in my life that would cause it. Which I am aware can be indicative of various medical issues. I sleep well once I am in bed, and if I wasn't Brando would be able to tell me. The problem is that no matter how long I sleep for I still feel worn out as soon as I wake up. I have periods of feeling fine but then become sluggish and so tired I can barely get myself moving. It's like my whole body is weighed down by fatigue on a daily basis. Even a good nights sleep doesn't really help me. It makes it very hard to concentrate and remember things.

I've had depression, among other things, since childhood but it was never treated with medication. My best guess, until I can speak more in depth with my doctor, is the symptoms are coming from (previously) untreated depression.

I had fatigue issues for two years that were so bad I'd just fall asleep whenever and wherever, even in the middle of tasks. At the height, I was sleeping 12-14 hours a day before you counted the naps. I had a sleep test (they thought it was narcolepsy), and so many specialists my head spun. One last ditch test caught a severe vitamin D deficiency. I endured a year and a half of blood tests for that... but I don't pass out at needles anymore!

They were worried about hypothyroidism, but it's so borderline they wanted to figure out the fatigue first. Since that was sorted, I lost my insurance and can't go back to get the thyroid levels rechecked.

Also, a friend just kicked me out of a renfaire trip that I was largely responsible for making happen? Because it might be a date but she's not sure and apparently we're back in middle school and she can't ask him. So I've been strongly hinted at and lightly asked not to go. I don't even...

That's sucky bro. Both parts I mean.

The fatigue hasn't gotten to that point yet, I can largely make it through the day. But I am physically drained just about 24/7. I get tired at 8pm and even if I sleep past 10am I wake up just as drained as I'd be if I went to bed at 3am. I occasionally get up at night to like, use the bathroom or whatever but otherwise I don't have any sleep problems.

As I understand, untreated depression can cause fatigue and the various side effects there of (fogginess, lack of concentration, forgetfulness, sweaty boob rash) if gone untreated long enough. Seeing as I've had a diagnosis since I was around 15 but haven't been on medication for it at all ever I am guessing that's where it's coming from.

Doctor lady was suppose to call me today but I didn't hear from her. Lamesauce. I'll have to call her up tomorrow to discuss it.

I'm not sure how she would function if it weren't for her family. And me, I guess. I just stopped her from putting mayo back in the fridge that she'd left out for the last 5 hours or so. She's smart, but I don't know how she'll function in the real world.

I fall asleep at random points during the day regardless of how much I sleep at night. My brother has severe sleep hypopnea, and narcolepsy couldn't be ruled out, either. We found that out when he started driving and passed out behind the wheel. He only had his license for a week... He was fine but the car was totalled. He thinks he woke up right before he drifted into a tree and hit the gas instead of the brake.

I've also gained like 25 pounds in the last two years despite working out like I do and eating healthy. Some of it's muscle, yes, but enough of it's not so as to be concerning to me. But since all my bloodwork is always great, all the doctors just assume I'm lying or something.

Either my sleep study will tell me something or it won't. Next stop is an endocrinologist, I guess.

Got done with acting class and I swear my teacher is having a bromance with one of the students. I wonder if I can make a drinking game how many times he praises that student
