    ”Nothing interesting is happening in my life.”
    ”Except for my dry scalp.”

    [I scratch my head.]
    Me: ”I’m annoyed.”

    ”I bought a soothing shampoo from Lush.”
    Me: ”For its price, I hope it works.”
    ”It was pretty expensive stuff.”

    Trigger warnings for depression and suicidal thinking

    Me: ”Somehow I have often thought that being depressed is like being possessed.”
    ”One thinks thoughts that don’t feel one’s own.”

    Me, depressed: ”Mostly I am pissed off because of my shitty attitude, idiocy and tardiness.
    I would jump in that card board shredder myself, if it did not bring problems to others.”

    Me: ”It might scare my inner circle of people, and others deny its existence completely.”
    Me: ”It actually made me feel better to learn how the thing works on organ level.
    It has something to do with amygdala, stress hormone and developing brain.”

    So, next time:
    Someone: ”How can you be like that?!”
    Me: ”Depr…”
    Someone: ”Depression is whole lotta hooey! You have no reason to be depressed!
    It is only in your head!”
    Me: ”My unstable childhood environment and unequal treatment in elementary school made my amygdala produce stress hormone non-stop, which damaged my developing brain!
    Of course it is in my head!”

    Someone: ”Oh…”

    ETA// Mantelitumake on siis käskenyt jonkun toisen osan pöhöttää kortisolia oikein kunnolla, stressihormoni ei kehity itse mantelitumakkeessa.

    Amygdala has commanded some other part of my body to process a lot of stress hormone, it does not develop in the amygdala itself.

    There has been a lot of sleeping.

    Me: ”I’ve seen lots of dreams.”
    Adventure, thrills, special skills, romance

    Me: ”I have to admit, my dreams have been a lot more exciting compared to real life.”

    We’ll see how my next night shifts go.

    Me: ”The finger joints of my right hand have started to ache.”

    Me: ”I am expecting the worst, of course.”

    Me thinking: ”Osteoarthritis, rheumatism…”

    Me: ”But then again, the pain is not impossible. I have rested my hands a lot.”

    ”Osku takes care of me too.”
    [Cat’s purring while laying on my hand.]

    Me: ”But should I be worried?”

    Me: ”I have done some night shifts.”

    On Friday I had a day off.
    Me thinking: ”The dentist appointment is at 11:20 am, I get to snooze a little.”

    At 11:03 am
    Me thinking: ”I overslept, then!”

    …But I made it in time!

    Me thinking: ”Something strawberry-flavoured would hit the spot…”

    [I notice a packet of flavoured condoms. Flavours include strawberry, vanilla, banana and celery.]
    Me: ”Um…”
    Me thinking: ”Maybe I’ll get some strawberry ice cream.”

    Me: ”I went to the dentist’s check up some time ago. No cavities! (*

    (* I rejoiced too soon, there was one beneath the dental calculus.

    Dentist: ”All your wisdom teeth have come in, but there has been space for them.
    Me: ”Uh huh.”
    Dentist: ”For real, you never have had any fillings made?”
    Me: ”Nope.”
    Me: ”I did not quite have the nerve to admit that sometimes I have taken lousy care of my arsenal.”

    Some years ago:
    Me: ”I can’t manage…”

    Me: ”But now I am going to take some better care! I have xylitol pastilles, dental floss, new toothbrush! I’ll get to the dental calculus removal on August.”
