  • Hylätyksi tulemisen pelko

    joulukuu 4th, 2017

    One night I woke up to a bad dream, that had themes of abandonment and rejection.

    Me: ”Today, I awkwardly found out that my friends had gone to the movies together, and not asked me with them.”

    Usually, I would not mind…
    …But these were supposed to be my closest friends, and I have been suffering from loneliness.

    At work, around 09:17 am…

    Coworker: ”And the poor baby was hiding behind the shower curtain…”
    Me: ”Poor fella.”

    Customer: ”At which time you open?”
    Me and my colleague: ”…”
    Customer: ”Well, at what time you open on Sundays?!”

    Me thinking: ”Is this a trick question?”
    Colleague: ”A-at nine am!”

    At the hospital after bloodworks:

    Me thinking: ”A round post card!”

    Me: ”Hmm.”

    Me thinking: ”I can’t bend the corners of this one!”

  • Kilpailutus

    huhtikuu 6th, 2017

    Me: ”This thing came up late at night in a group chat. Question the price and quality of your meds.”

    I was such a dork to eat the first prescribed birth control for many years.
    After many years, my blood pressure stood out as an issue. I was prescribed a mini pill, that is supposedly better for blood pressure.

    Me: ”Well, I can’t say much about that blood pressure, but…”
    [Author/Artist eats two different BP meds]

    There are other benefits.
    Sales clerk: ”X euros, please!”
    Me thinking: ”About half cheaper than my old birth control!”
    Me: ”Then my periods stopped. It is a common side effect of my current birth control pill. I am not bothered, actually.”

    Many other medicines can also be raced.
    Pharmacist: ”Would you accept a similar, cheaper brand?”
    Me: ”Yes, please!”

    I recommend discussing the price of medicines at the pharmacist’s or the quality of the product at the doctor’s office.

    ”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?”
