Lil'Cthulhu ate my sanity

Lil'Cthulhu ate my sanity. What about yours?

Energy is back to "normal", I think. By normal I of course mean me-normal, still requiring to be in bed by 11 pm and not going out, etc, but at least I do manage to be awake for most of the day, and even do stuff beyond the basic. Go team!
The plus side of the slumber of energy is that my doctor has got herself in gear (I think I scared her), and I'm having more prodding and poking this week than I've had for a while. Something may yield a result, and that prospect both makes me happy and scared.

I have been knitting again, but nothing that is nominally on my knitting list (see sidebar top). After I met Ysolda at my LYS (that was the first time I knit for 3-4 weeks), I got some orange yarn and cast on for the Peaks Island Hood (rav). It is a good mix of mindless and interesting, and I have just started the hood part.

I have no idea when/if I'll pick back up the knitting list, but at the moment I'm not going to push it: I'm just happy I kind of feel like knitting again.
One of these days it may even stop pouring down like the world is going to end, and I may have enough light to take some pictures. But I'm not holding my breath on the rain thing.

A little better

Things have been a bit better since I wrote my last post.
My sleep got a bit better. I only worked a half day on Friday, and even if I didn't get to do as much as I wanted, it was both nice and restful. I got a very shiny iPod Touch. I went to a Jonathan Coulton concert (with Paul & Storm), which was a lot of fun. I met Ysolda, and now I appear in her blog. I am meeting friends (friends!) on Saturday for some knitting.

I am still quite low on energy, but not as low. Still not finding a lot of joy on things, but things feel a little bit better. I may make it this week to the gym (after two no-show weeks and the leaving-in-the-middle week). I have a doctor appointment next week, and this time I am bringing her a list with things to check, so hopefully something will yield results.

Is it sleep time now? Please?

The last couple of weeks feel like I've been wading through molasses. I've been tired for a long time, but never this tired. By the time I come back from work, I'm so shattered that I can only manage to do the bare minimum to have food and clean clothes, and then it's bed time again. I've not had any free time for a while, and whatever free time I have I just want to hibernate, and even hobbies feel like a chore.

I'm only working a half day this Friday. My original plan was to go do some shopping when shops are empty-ish, but I'm just going to come home and pass out, because I can't handle this. It makes me feel like a failure, but if I sleep then maybe, maybe, I'll have a shot at spending some of my weekend time away.

You spin me right round

First spindle kit

Like a record, baby, right round

First spindle kit

This is the Drop Spindle Kit from Silver Sun Alpacas. He kindly changed the fibre from wool to a beautiful black carbonised bamboo for me, and included a little sample of another bit of bamboo! It arrived today and I can't wait to start.
