naamah_darling: The right-side canines of a wolf's skull; the upper canine is made of gold. (Horatio Stupid)
So remember a few weeks ago when I went to the doctor and had my thyroid levels checked and had my dosage of Synthroid raised? Because I was feeling exceedingly stupid and unable to think straight or remember words? Well, the symptoms improved for a while, then just . . . came back. So I've been worried ever since, like there's some kind of evil alien parasite inside my skull secretly feasting on my brain matter.

Turns out that my cat knocked the new pill bottle onto the floor, along with the old one, which I had not yet thrown out, and when I picked it up, I mixed the two up and . . . well . . . I've been taking the old dosage ever since then. And because memory problems are part of the reason I went up a dose, I was unable to remember what that higher dose was.

Um. Ooops?

I feel really, really stupid. I would not, in fact, have shared this with you at all except that A) it's fucking funny, B) It explains why I may have seemed inattentive and withdrawn* and haven't had the energy for much, and C) I want you to know two very important things:

1) I've been unable to think straight and I have still managed to write. I am impressed by this. And gosh, maybe it would be easier if I took the right pills.

2) The part I am working on right now requires the particular kind of thinking I find really difficult at the moment. I've eaten half my lead trying to get unstuck, so I may call for a one-week break on [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams sometime soon so I can catch up again. I apologize for that. Truly, I do, and I hope it isn't necessary.

I am going to go take the correct dose now, and hope it helps my brain feel a little less sheathed in lead.

* Re: Inattentive and withdrawn. It's hard for people to tell sometimes what is me being inattentive because my mind is wandering, and what is me not saying or doing much of anything because I am concentrating so hard on following what is going on that I don't involve myself in it. Hell, it's hard for me to tell the difference sometimes. This applies during gaming, especially, in which case neither circumstance should be construed as evidence that I don't care.

Expect there to be amusing roleplaying quotes, complete non-sequiturs, and a great deal of swearing. I will probably talk about sex a lot. That or my cats. Who knows?

This thing doesn't list "friends," it lists "followers." Awesome.

I expect there to be naked men on my front porch by morning. Well, give them a blanket or something. I don't want to have to go fishing their gonads out with my only crochet hook.

Arrrgh.

I have a doctor's appointment to discuss my bloodwork next Tuesday.

I have not given the blood for the bloodwork yet BECAUSE I FORGOT LIKE A MORON and now it will probably not be ready in time. Maybe I can get them to do the CBC w/diff posthaste, so I will at least be able to tell if I am anemic yet from all of this BLEEDING.

I will go anyway to discuss the Seroquel stuff and get new prescriptions and ask his opinion about the uterus of doom, but I sort of would really like to know if I need to change my prescriptions before I leave, because getting information out of the black hole that is the doctor's office is almost impossible.

Adding to the fun, I have to finish the entryway tomorrow because the writers' meeting is Friday, here, and I can't exactly leave painting stuff scattered around and a wall half-finished. I guess I do half of it tonight, instead. Great.

I fought like hell to get that appointment, and what good is it going to do me, exactly? Christ, I am such a tosky floop. I blame stress, and that is completely understandable, but it doesn't make me feel any better for forgetting something so fucking important. I realize I'm being a drama queen, but . . . fuck. What is wrong with me?

Naamah, you dumb shit. PUT A CALENDAR UP ALREADY.
