Words fail me…

Upon reflection it seems this person lives in Asia, but I have a hard time believing Scooby Doo cartoons haven’t been shown all over the planet. I watched Scooby dubbed into Portuguese when I was in Brazil back in the early 80’s. Unfortunately, it was the Scrappy Doo season where they ditched Fred, Daphne, and Velma.

Supernatural is crossing over with Scooby-Doo? That wonderful show does not deserve to be tainted by the likes of Supernatural!

Supernatural is crossing over with Scooby-Doo? I don’t care because neither series holds the slightest interest for me.

I find myself tired all the time.
Most days I go straight to bed when I get home and sometimes I begin to knod off on the bus/train back from work (I’m thankful that I’m forbidden to drive).
I get up really late at weekends too so I just feel like I’m working and not much else.
I went through a period of this when the guys at the hospital were rejigging my medication which was much worse, to the point where it was impossible to work.
It’s a really crucial point in the year for our service so I dare not take time off.

If you’re willing to share, what medications are you taking? Might be time to rejig then again.

I’ve got a number of chronic conditions but it’s the anticonvulsives that are the difficult one to balance.
Too little and I’m at risk of seizures and too much and I’m at risk of being being irratable and snappy (I work around vulnerable people so that’s the last thing I want).
A break would be very welcome (I’m up at six in the morning, do quite a bit of travelling and I’m unofficially on call out of hours).
It doesn’t help that the manager of the place I’m in secondment to is really not doing her job and our service which is successful and helping lots of people is at risk of being axed because she is a bit shy when it comes to filling in funding bid forms.
She seems more concerned with how she might redeploy me as one of her team rather than what is going to happen to the service users. I don’t do the job just to make money I specifically chose the job to help care providers. In any other context I would rather eat my own legs than work for this person directly.
Apnea is possible. Bruxism is certain. I’ve just forked out a large amount of money for a dental splint so I don’t grind down the remaining teeth in my head. Headaches are really something.

Sorry to hear you are going through so much. The only thing I can suggest is that you tell your doctor(s) what is happening to you.

Another thing to check if you haven’t already is if you have sleep apnea. That was my problem and a CPAP machine helped me immensely.

My mom has sleep apnea but doesn’t seem too keen on actually doing anything about it except complain about sleeping poorly.

Thanks Warb.
Yeah I guess something like that will have to happen eventually.
Hopefully the splint and my eventual summer break will settle things a bit.
It’s hard to tell how much of this is just job stress/fatigue and how much is ongoing the medical doodars.
My busted knee cap is sending it’s regards too.
But there is always someone worse off than yourself so grumble mode deactivated.

I can tell her how much the CPAP helped me when I see her tonight.

I recently returned to social media (meaning Facebook) after leaving in January, but my obsessive need to check it every 10 minutes became annoying, depressing, and emotionally draining, so I essentially locked myself out of it. It sucks that the reason I had to quit returned so soon after I returned.

I’m getting anxious by the day as my move out date approaches. About a month ago, I finally had a realization that I’ve been emotionally abused and used all these years by my dad but refused for the longest time that my mental hang ups/depression were the result of him; I blamed myself for my short comings, believing I was inherently broken for some odd reason. For 3 years, I’ve been financially drained of my income, become socially isolated, dependent on him or someone else for driving me to places (he never taught me), and always fail to succeed in anything since the smallest mistakes somehow warrant ridicule and lecturing rather than a positive one that fosters growth to learn mistakes. His way or the highway. Lost my own identify.

So yeah, my sleep patterns have always been bad, but it’s more of a struggle now knowing I’m taking such a nerve wracking step for myself to sever this co-dependent relationship my dad constructed, with the sale pitch, “it’s for the family, and you love your family, don’t you?”

Fuck.

Hey Tavor, hang in there man. Good on you for taking the steps to get out of that situation, and don’t beat yourself up too much. You’re doing the right thing and you have my support behind you, for what it’s worth. It’ll get easier as you go.

Handman, I hear ya buddy. Social media is best used in heavy moderation. I say this a lot, but I feel like we’re coming to a point in society where the novelty of being able to be always connected with everyone you know is wearing off and we’re beginning to realize that it isn’t always the best thing (especially with the amount of experimentation and manipulation going on through social media these days). I myself have cut way back on Facebook time and I’m much happier for it.
