Thoughts and Observations

Just randomness today:

Usually I love summer, but lately the heat and humidity are really getting to me. I hate getting all sweaty and gross on my trek to work or class. And I'm sick of wearing dresses.

Feeling fat sucks.


I've been meaning to do another Post-Medication Update, although there's not a whole lot to report; still feeling relatively okay and stable. School has me stressed out, but that's not a result of being unmedicated. However, one change I've noticed: after pretty much breaking the habit, I've started biting my nails again.

This has become one of my most-read posts. I guess you guys like birthdays and coffee and country music. And never in a million years did I think my blog would get hits from people searching Neymar hair. Although, he does have cool hair.

"The Executive Look"

I mentioned tummy issues a while ago. As predicted, my doctor told me I had IBS, prescribed glycopyrrolate, and told me to come back in three months. I picked up the prescription but haven't actually taken any of the medicine. Why? Not totally sure. Well I guess for one, I saw that it is anticholinergic (a.k.a. drying); I've had problems with this class of medications in the past because they tend to dry out my eyes. Plus, I just feel sort of apathetic about taking something to address symptoms when we have no clue about the underlying cause.

I think I need to go pick out a library book. I'm spending too much time on my computer.

I have NO MONEY.

I want new sunglasses and shoes. But see above.

Oh, I'd also like a new cell phone, jeans, a private pool, and a personal chef.

I have no Labor Day plans. WHY AM I SO LAME? Is anyone having a barbecue somewhere? Please invite me.


  1. I'm sorry your body image is no bueno right now. The med does seem like it could be a problem with the potential for drying. I know how wonderful it's been for your eyes to be feeling good, and it would suck for that to go backwards. Could you talk to the doctor about that?

    Hope you can find something fun to do! Mark and I are doing some stuff around his house, then cooking dinner, and having a fire pit if you'd like to join us! Just hop on a plane! :) Seriously though, I hope you have a great rest of your day!

    1. HAHA thank you!! I'm there! I'll bring a dessert!

    2. Hey! What happened? I was hoping for that dessert! jk jk

    3. my b - took a nap, missed the flight :)


  3. Hey :) I'm sorry things are rough right now, try to keep your head up and I agree with the hot weather because I hate being all sweaty when I go places throughout the day too...fall is just upon us ;)
