first cure for whininess: going to bed before 10 and getting up at 730, and mostly sleeping in between. save for waking up from a nightmare around 4 and taking awhile to get back to sleep from it, i slept well. that was much needed.

second cure for whininess: pinging friends and making plans for the evening. yes, self, it really is that easy.

i'm feeling much better today. still tired, but not nearly as whiny as i was last night.

so i pinged Tonya this morning to see if they wanted to come over here for games tonight, but she had to be over at her house this evening to wait for someone, so she asked if i wanted to go over there instead. so after work i went swimming then to the store for a couple things i needed then home to drop off stuff then back out to western to catch my bus out to their house. we ended up roasting a chicken and having tomato and fresh mozerella salad for dinner, and bread. and playing Settlers. it was nice, and just what i needed. thanks, guys. :)

now i have all kinds of things i want to do here, but i need to go to bed. hrmph. :)

so, i have an underactive thyroid. this body part has been malfunctioning since i was 16, so this isn't much of anything new. however, at the time, the family physician's sole information about the problem was "yea, it sucks. here, take this pill every day. yea, you're going to have to do this forever. but this'll fix it." no information about drug interactions or anything else. so i finally recently got curious enough to actually, oh, read the information that comes with my drugs every month (yes, i should have read it ages ago, but my main reaction to medical problems is to try to ignore them). so now i understand why over the counter drugs can be bad (apparently there are interactions that can raise your blood pressure) and other assorted information.

one thing, however, doesn't make sense to me. the flyer states that certain foods can inhibit the abosorption of the drugs and should be avoided around the time you take the drugs (not really an issue, since they're supposed to be taken on an empty stomach): soybean flour, dietary fiber, and walnuts. now, how something with fiber in it would interfere with absorbing something just makes sense, but, walnuts? whiskey tango foxtrot?

ok. i'm really going to bed this time.
