      Rave: The fish, last night, was exceptional. I almost wished we had bought 2 so I didn't have to share It ended up being more than enough, though. Plus, it was crab crusted, which meant more acid reflux. If I had eaten an entire meal myself, it would have been unbearable!

      Rant: It is much too quiet here! Where is everyone hiding

      Rant: I have to buy some Protonix this week. It's for acid relux and I've not had it for a week. Which would explain why everything has been so much worse this week Ranitidine, even 3 times a day, doesn't work nearly as well as 1 Ranitidine in the AM and 1 Protonix before bed.
      I also need Provigil this week.

      Rant: PLUS... my baby brother called and asked for a $100. loan. I forgot I have to get my meds, so I now have to ask my mom and she can spot him $50. and I'd cover the other $50. The full amount just isn't feasible and I can't ask hubby because hubby HATES my brother (initially justified, but good God can that man hold a grudge. Forget about it friggin already!)

      Rant: I am still EXTRA exhausted. I got in almost 12 hours worth of sleep last night and I can still barely keep my eyes open (after an entire Provigil too!) Bah!

      Time to game for an hour... then hubby might send me out for a very late dinner...

      Busy mostly!! Dog Sitting for someone. Trying to stay not sick.
      I'm chatting on Discord. Writing my latest dreams and of course, I'm causing utter chaos in my wake. Other than that, nothing much. *shrugs* Here: https://www.dreamviews.com/tasks-mon...ml#post2231319

      Whew... what a dream, IC
      Glad you're staying busy (if that's what you enjoy).
      Your post reminded me that I have yet to buy a new mic lol. But, meh, I tend to hide from people so I can't justify the expense now that everything had to go get all fancy (I loved my cheap $5.-$10. stand alone mic from Walmart which I used for goodness only knows how long. It was a dinosaur )

      Rant: I can't believe just HOW utterly exhausted I am. It's ridiculous. Even while gaming or watching something, I fall off into micro naps (complete with dreams). I'm not seeing any blood when I use the restroom, but a huge part of me thinks I'm anemic. It's the only thing that makes sense. Thank goodness I see the Dr. tomorrow!

      Rant: I'm freezing. It's not 72 degrees (finally up some from 70). If I'm not moving, though, it needs to be MUCH warmer for me to be comfy. My heater, though, doesn't seem to want to pick up the slack. Recovering from 64 degree sleeping temps seems to be too difficult.

      Rant: I also have taxi duty tomorrow AND have to try to figure out how to transfer money between Walmart stores. Bah!

      Time to go crawl back in bed and hug my heating pad for a few hours lol.

      Question? When I described the dream character for the task of the month. Can you picture what he looks like? Could you draw him?

      I sense his essence. I have aphantasia to one degree or another. (https://www.bbc.com/news/health-34039054)
      Like, if someone says "imagine an apple", I see a very slight shadowy outline of a basic apple. Color will flash briefly before disappearing. It's hard to hold on to the image at all... almost like seeing a shadow out of the corner of your eyes, but when you turn to look at it, it's gone.

      I think in words and your words painted a seductive scene
      (It's very strange to me that my dreams are more vivid than real life- full of detail, color, activity, and picture perfect memory. So, the images are stored somehow, I just can't access it consciously.)

      Rave: I do NOT need surgery. He says it looks like it's shrinking on its own and I just need to be patient. Humorously enough, he SEVERELY dislikes "Preparation H" and similar creams. He says there's a 50/50 chance it will do anything at all... and when it seems it does, it might actually just be your body taking care of the problem.
      He pushed fiber and fluids and I told him about a possible diagnosis of gastroparesis. He was taken aback that they tossed that diagnoses out without further testing. He ordered a gastric emptying test for me. Maybe I can finally get to the bottom of this bloating!!!!!!

      Rave: I REALLY liked him. He didn't even have me gown up. He just raised the table, had me lay on my side, then had my skirt lifted and undies lowered (there were 2 nurses in the room with him, who partially covered me because that's whats expected lol. Seriously, what did the blanket over the front of me accomplish? My skirt was still tucked down )
      He talks a little too much and talks over you a little (as people tend to do when joking and relaxed).
      I don't know if he's a Family Doctor or Specialized.. but if he's General everything, I think I may have found my new guy!

      Rant: Despite being strangely exhausted, I didn't sleep (much more than the occasional micro-nap) last night and this morning. I did take a decent nap while waiting for the Doctor, though. My sleep is thoroughly annoying me.

      Rave: But I found a new favorite iPad game: Merge Dragons! Good golly that game is friggin addictive!!

      Rant: Woke up sick and threw up everywhere this morning. I puke all over my sister's dog, Tessie. I have a sore throat too. I have no appetite. The world's against me I swear... My sister's dogs don't make things easy either. Yes, I'm dog sitting. Every time I would finally fall off asleep, they would start barking at god knows what. I feel pain all over. Getting up when you are shivering non-stop because you have a fever doesn't help... "Oh, fun!!" I have had a bad week.
      Eh, I must have a little allergy to my graphite pencils. What the hell. A little drawback for being an artist, I guess.
      On the bright side is that I got better at drawing, I think. But, I still have a long way to go.

      I hope you're feeling completely better, IC. Sounds terrible! Sucks about the graphite. Maybe you could get some surgical-type gloves to wear when using it? You're skill is friggin amazing. That portrait you shared in another thread was absolutely amazing.

      Rant: I didn't sleep for nearly 2 days. I had the gastric emptying study yesterday, so I couldn't take any of my reflux meds. On Monday, I was scared of sleeping through my alarms, so I couldn't sleep that night. The night before, I stayed up because of discomfort from lack of meds.
      Last night, I passed out. Now, I'm finding it nearly impossible to stay awake.

      In fact, I woke up with an "EEK!" because I felt something wet through my blankets. Apparently, when my alarm went off, I grabbed my bottle of e-juice to top off my tank.. then fell asleep with the bottle open and proceeded to spill almost all of it out because I fell back to sleep in the process of it all...

      RAGE: My skin is friggin annoying the dickens out of me. In fact, I had to go home during the study yesterday, just so I could slather up with lotion and change clothes. My skin is itchy, crawling, burning, "tight", and dry. I couldn't figure out if my clothes were contaminated with allergens or if it was just dry skin. I think it was both. I've had to shower every single night the entire week- which dries me out to a ridiculous degree.

      Rant: I keep falling asleep WHILE I'm typing. Sorry if it's disjointed lol.

      Now, it's about time to take off- again- for yet another Dr's appointment. It's a follow-up on the hemorrhoids and to go over the results of yesterday's test (which was 4 1/2 hours long!) I doubt he'll have the results of that test, though. I'm very curious about the results!!

      **EDIT**
      It's been confirmed that I have delayed emptying. My results were something like 5, 50, and 82%. "In the some study using this acquisition protocol, the normal values were 10%, 65% and 90%, at 1, 2 and 4 hours, respectively."
      To me, though, that doesn't seem like such a big difference.
      SO, I get to have another endoscopy done. This time, though, the Dr assured me he WILL take a biopsy- whether he sees anything unusual or not.

      Always great to see Zhaylin is still here, at least a familiar name still sticks around.

      I just realised we have a discord but I've no idea how to start a convo there. I can't even remember how I managed to start a convo here in DV when I was young. I guess age does something to people, I grew more socially awkward.

      Howdy, Carrot. Yep, this is my home away from home

      Regarding Discord, just say (or type) "Hey! What's everyone up to today?"
      But yeah... I'm socially awkward too... but usually when it comes to ending a conversation. I'm great at small talk and keeping a conversation going if someone else is doing most of the talking. When everything's run its course though, or if I have to/want to leave, how do you politely end things.

      Which is probably one of the biggest reasons why I hate instant chatting. Nah. I like being able to take my time to think about replies and being able to leave and join conversations without awkward pauses or goodbyes. Give me forums any day!

      Rant: I'm extra sleepy and extra greasy. My head is seriously getting on my last friggin nerves. Who the heck has this many overly active sweat glands or something?! It's like, I have a dry scalp but greasy hair. Hygiene is becoming a MAJOR friggin pain in my butt. I despise having to shower every day. My face is developing white spots from dry skin. And I don't even use ANY soap on my face and, it barely gets wet because I stand turned away from the shower stream. What the heck gives?

      I, equally, despise body lotion It's either too greasy or too heavy.
      I even turned down the heat during my showers. I know the hot water is the biggest contributor to my dry skin. But, even luke-warm showers are drying me out too much.

      I'm sleepy because I no longer sleep worth a crap. I lay down and play games on my iPad until well after sunrise I'm friggin addicted and want to cut back... and yet not. I enjoy the games. Who needs sleep

      Some people are pretty chill and friendly there on Discord. Yeah, it can be awkward at time but, it's not that bad. I feel bad for my endless babble on there, though. I'm still thinking of taking a break from there.
      Rant: This was a picture last week when I was sick... I'm DEAD!! According to this, I am:
      Spoiler for sick:

      I was sick but, I don't think I WAS that sick. I never have any luck with those things.

      Rant: My truck caught on fire... Last week and I need a new vehicle. It's not every day your own vehicle catches on fire. It was on the news, according to my friends but, I didn't see it.
      Rave: Just showed my mom the Facial composite or profile drawing of my DC, and she was like, "Man, he is handsome. I love his eyes!" That she started telling me that I should do more drawings and yadda yadda yadda. My brother didn't like him though. :/
      Oh, yesterday I had a dream that I got in a fight with that very same DC that was in my TOTM. It was over who broke the washer and Dryer. He was acting like a jerk...

      Does that say your temp was 107?
      Yep. We're talking with a zombie

      Every time I take my temp, my normal shows up as 97.3 And it doesn't matter if it's the oral thermometer or the one you press against your head. My temp just runs low. I always have to explain to people that if my temp is 99, then I'm running a fever lol.

      Your truck caught on FIRE? My goodness, how crazy! Glad no one was hurt, but it sucks that you now have to get another vehicle.
      As for your brother... brothers tend to just suck They have a habit of doing things JUST to get a reaction or to get under our skin... OR to appear apathetic and "manly" so we don't see just how much they care lol.

      Sorry about your DC lol. I think it's great that you have them, even if this one was a jerk My DC's are either people I know in RL or from TV shows I've been binging. I know I've had a few that were of my own creation, but they're never recurring characters or anything (except for Jeff Tassin when I was in my teens).

      Rant: My schedule. I REALLY need to do *something* about it- if only to get back on a proper medicine routine. As it is, I sometimes take my daily/morning meds at 10 AM; other times, it's not until 6 PM

      Rave: It's such a silly thing, but cotton sheets ARE the way to go. I recline in bed. When I was using my cheep poly-blend sheet, I would constantly "slip" further and further down until I was practically laying down lol. I couldn't find a clean fitted sheet, but I had a queen size flat sheet, so I used that instead. It has been amazing. It's not constantly getting bunched and threatening to pop off of my desk (my bed). The flat sheet stays tucked against the wall perfectly, and offers more "friction" (?) against slipping down.
      Ahhh, the little things in life

      Yeah, I'm still looking for a something to drive. Good thing the truck was insured.

      Yeah, a zombie attack is all that we need here. But, hey, at least we will be more alive.
      Rave: With that DC, We made up.

      Rant: So, last week, I had a sleepwalking incident where I climbed a tree. *shrug* It's most likely stress was involved in my sleepwalking incident.

      Rant: I'm kind of regretting even posting the fainting dream. It's slightly more personal than the other ones. The silence is deafening.
      https://www.dreamviews.com/general-d...ing-dream.html

      Rave: I had a funny dream, last night, where I went back in time to ancient Rome. I was jailed and even sentenced to death. I grew to be a giant to escape. I remember saying something sarcastic at them that they didn't like and then they attacked me with their little weapons. The feeling of getting stabbed by their tiny swords felt like getting attacked by toothpicks which tickled. The earth quaked in every step that I took.

      So I've joined DV discord but I have no idea how to join in the convo and I'm just lurking around. Omg I'm not used to the forum emoticons anymore hahaha.

      But I've so much going on in my mind nowadays I don't think I'm ready to engage in small talk with anyone. And I'm also spending more time talking to myself in my head. But I'm gonna take baby steps, the top of my list is to sleep well and feel refreshed. Then I can go ahead to solve other issues in my life like actually having a friend to talk to, somehow I grew distant from everyone ever since I quit my job last year and have been jobless for more than a year, I'm not quite sure when things gone downhill, but some days I feel humans are just so disappointing..

      Most of the time, I feel like I don't have anything in common with people there on Discord either. Well, when you are ready I hope that people will welcome you with open arms.

      Sorry I've been so absent. I've taken my isolation to an extreme. I've even disengaged from FB (where I mostly lurk, but I'm not even doing that).
      I don't think I'm depressed. I don't FEEL depressed, anyhow I'm just in between "meh" and content.
      But freezing my butt off. My heater cannot keep up with the cold. It's currently 66 degrees in my room with the space heater maxed out. I've been spending a ridiculous amount of time in bed, for the blankets and heating pad

      I have my iPad, though, so I could do all the social things I normally do on it. I just haven't been.

      Glad you joined Discord, Carrot. Even lurking can be helpful. It makes you feel connected, if only a little. And as you lurk, you'll learn things about everyone, which makes conversation a bit easier.

      IC, loved both of your dreams, but the Giant one sounded great I've had those sort of fainting dreams as well. I HATE those. Those types of dreams are the ones where I feel VERY sleepy and I struggle to find a room so I can go to sleep and enter "the real world". It's more like an alternate reality than a lucid dream.

      My car battery was completely dead the other day. We got it on the charger and it did okay after that. But the weather is extra extreme again. I have a Dr. appointment early tomorrow. The car barely started just now. It's warming up to melt everything off the windshield and then I'm putting it in the garage and back on the charger. I also have to pump my tires some.

      I had an endoscopy yesterday. He said everything LOOKS okay, but he took several biopsies.
      (Tomorrow is just the allergy PA. My followup for the endoscopy isn't for a couple weeks or so)

      Despite freezing my butt off, I REALLY want a frozen coke But there's no way I'm going to go get one. The roads will be extra slick. And, I'm about 95% certain that corn syrup and cold beverages is a leading contributor toward my bloating AND gastroparesis. Everything I drink HAS to be ice cold... which can slow down digestion.

      Lovely...

      Gotta go take care of my car.
      Stay warm and safe, everyone

      Yeah, I forgot my cord to my Ipad at my sister's house. So I can't listen to stuff.

      Rant: It's cold...

      Rave: I had a dream that my Dream Character was asleep on the couch, he cuddled a tomato.
      I recall that I woke him up and asked him why was he was sleeping with a tomato? He answered, "Hmm because he got lonely."

      Then in another dream I had, that same DC, Where had the same face he did in the last dream but, he had the body of a baby... Except for his feet, they were his normal shoe size. Then I went lucid... Then I did one of the tasks of the month. LOL

      Link, "hectic ride" is right! My goodness. Sounds like a nightmare to me, and like you dodged a bullet by someone else getting to be manager! Glad you could help the lady out, though.

      RAVE: The weather is thawing out some. It actually reached 75 in my room, today... the cold ruined me a little though, so I quickly turned the heat down to keep it at around 73 (I usually prefer it to be 77 unless I'm moving around/doing stuff).

      Rave: I finally got the TV set up in my room... but only because I needed my poop bucket, which is stored at the bottom of my glass cabinet; which was blocked by the TV.... Yeah our plumbing froze completely: No water in or out/no working toilet (the pipe out freezes too).
      Sometimes I'm thankful for this gastroparesis

      Curiosity: When the pipes freeze, I pee in a large 64 ounce cup. It took me 3 days to fill it up. (I could have sworn I've written about this already.) I usually drink 60 ounces of Frozen Coke every day, plus some 6 ounces of Sprite or Coke, plus some 6 ounces of water. So that's, what, 72 ounces of beverages every day. How is it possible, then, to pee only c. 21 ounces a day? Ha! I just googled it. Most people urinate 800-2,000 ml a day, or 27-67 ounces. There are 67 ounces in 2 liters (recommended water intake). I'm at the low end- of acceptable.
      I guess the rest of it is just processed and used for bodily functioning?
      Learn something new every day, I guess

      Rave-ish: I'm watching "The Punisher" on Netflix. I'm REALLY enjoying the show, but I've had to look away a few times (gratuitous violence with gore).

      Rant: My shoulder's been hurting a lot, these last couple of days. Not enough to take meds for... but enough that I WANT to take meds for, lol, but there's seldom enough food on my stomach to do so.

      Rave: Hubby bought me a new car battery

      I finished both seasons of The Punisher. It was really good. There, more than likely, won't be a season 3 though If, by some miracle, there is, it won't be out until 2020 anyhow.

      These friggin "migraines" are getting on my last blooming nerve! There's seldom any pain associated with the worst of them- just visual disturbances and some nausea. I should be thankful, but they alter my mood and just make me snappy and irritable

      I see my p-doc tomorrow. I'm going to tell him all of this, but he'll probably just tell me to have a checkup lol I KNOW my BP has been running too high nowadays. When I went in for my endoscopy, they nagged me about getting on daily BP meds. When I saw the allergist, he agreed, but said I absolutely CANNOT take beta blockers and continue my allergy shots

      SO... I should probably try to wake up at a decent hour tomorrow, and see my regular Dr. as a walk-in (my p-doc is at 3:00 and walk-ins are stopped at noon... blah. I HATE mornings )

      Rant/Rage/Rave: I got the Xbox up and running... then I found my old HD's and used one of them last night. My gracious those Profiles are OLD. The rants and raging is because none of my old logins/passwords are working. When I FINALLY "recovered" one of them, I was then told there was an error and to contact support
      I browsed "My Games" and I had forgotten some of those games existed but I LOVED them (Viva Pinata; Kingdom of Keflings; Astro Pop). But, even though they were saved onto the HD, I can't seem to be able to access them. Maybe I need Xbox Live or one of my Profiles to work. I tried creating a new Profile, but my password kept being rejected for my email
      The keyboard wasn't working and controller typing was enraging me, so I finally had to give up.
      It IS nice having a console again, though.

      Hope everyone is well out there in Lurkerville.

      Meh. I didn't sleep yesterday. With my new schedule, there wasn't any point (asleep by 6AM-ish, awake by noon-2).
      At 9, I called my car dealership to finally schedule my oil change and the replace the passenger side airbag which was recalled (on for Thursday).
      Then, I went- as a walk-in- to my Family Dr.


      Having had no sleep, my BP was 120/80 He doesn't think I need BP meds because it fluctuates so much. He ordered a bunch of blood work, then did some carotid imaging test to see if I have any blockages or something.
      We ended up covering more info than just the BP, and he wants to try me on a monthly injection for migraines. I need to study up on it GREATLY before I fill the script.
      I see him again in 2 weeks.

      Then, I saw my p-doc at 3 and we talked about everything under the sun (as usual), and I still managed to forget half the stuff I initially WANTED to talk about
      I see him, next, in 3 months. Blah.

      Got home, and just chilled with my iPad and Xbox.... and then hubby's car alarm kept randomly going off. Seriously? Which meant, I had to call and wake him from his nap... and then I had to go over to help him investigate and troubleshoot. He couldn't hear it from his end of the house, but I could see the lights flashing and hear it from across the yard (I'm in a direct line of sight/earshot though) That was at around 8 PM... then it went off some more until he removed the battery from one of his fobs.

      Rant: I smell dog poop in my room. I've checked my shoes and they're clean. I only smell it from my desk.... ahhhh, perhaps it's coming in from the yard. My AC isn't perfectly sealed in the window.

      Rage: My internet keeps crapping out since adding the Xbox. It's bogging down the router again (even though I plug it in directly... it can't find anything wirelessly.)
      I'm going to have to troubleshoot that some, as well. I am NOT logically intelligent, though. All this tech stuff just confuses me then makes me super cranky.

      For now, though... it's time to go back to bed and back onto the game systems until 6AM-ish.

      I apologize if I don't make sense, or even the fact that I'm not really in a great mood. Ummm. Yeah, my brain feels smushy...

      Rant: Moxie, that little snot bit my hand... Err!! Little vampire!! Or Better yet!! Moxie, the pet owner slayer. As he bit me, and I winced in pain, the birds, Yahtzee, the other bird laughed at me like a bloody joke.
      Rant: I'm having one of those times where everything could go wrong, has gone wrong... The worsed is that it is effecting on how am writing or thinking even on here. I feel like I'm not making myself clear at work, You know? Plus, people are saying that I'm burning my candles at both ends. Then they act like they just don't care. Then there was that nightmare that I had last night, about "The Devils Stumping Ground". Other than that it has been peachy.
      I even had a dream like this: https://www.dreamviews.com/dream-int...ml#post2232029

      To all those assholes out there who hate me: I hope you're proud of your self. I hope you have a real feeling of accomplishment. Because one day, and you know what it might not be in the here or now. It might not even be the near future. But one day you're going to open a newspaper, or you're going to turn on the television, and you're going to see that I or some other dream master that you bullied, has done something truly spectacular. And as you're putting on your name badge from Pretzel Time you'll say, "Wow, I really wish that I was nice to that girl." Because you're laughing now. You say digital wedgies are a way of the future. Well OK, I have one of those wedgies right now, in my pants. But you, have a much deeper darker, wedgie on your soul.

      Now, I feel just selfish, for even taking up everyone's time.

      I hope you're feeling, at least a little bit, better today. And I hope every day, hereafter, gets better and better.

      I feel you Zhaylin. I've been feeling pretty "meh" too but I don't think I'm depressed. And socialising is tiring, even scrolling too much Facebook and absorbing in what everyone is posting can be tiring too. I really want to try to go into isolation for 2 days over the weekend, but I can't seem to find anything interesting to do, games or shows.

      I'm currently working part time with 2 friends. One friend is my real life friend for over 10 years, the other friend is an online friend and we're in the same fandom.

      Earlier today in the office, I was feeling excited about something in my fandom, and my online friend came over to see what was on my computer screen when she saw how happy I was. Then we started chatting. My real life friend, who wasn't part of the convo, suddenly make a judgemental comment and spoiled the mood, and this has been bugging me for the whole day. I also just did a Google search on "how do you unfriend someone in real life". I don't know, maybe I should slowly disengage from her and get away from all the negativity. But first I need to get a new job so I don't have to see her everyday. Hmm....

      This is a random thought. But I think perhaps the best colleague I ever had in my life, was that one guy who was constantly depressed, but he will listen to whatever I say without judging me personally, we can talk about anything, rant about anything, talk about the most random things, and we've probably seen each other on our most exhausted days. I wonder if I should find a way to bring him back into my life hmm...
