Lessee, last I wrote, I was feeling better from chiropractic adjustments. That night, I was tripped by a certain large black cat, and fell down a couple of stairs. The bruise on my rear is spectacular. Thankfully, the fall didn't throw my back out again.

The doctor's appointment was good, and I have a follow-up on the 26, so we can go over the results of the x-rays of my upper spine and base of my skull, and the results of the mass of blood tests that are being run. But I kept having milder versions of the migraine that sent me to the ER ... and then on Sunday, the Stroppy One made me switch back to my old glasses (I'd gotten new ones in June), and we have determined that I probably gave myself hellacious eye strain over a few weeks. It is interesting to note that now that I've switched back to my previous glasses, the swings of vertigo and light sensitivity have died down.

And then on Monday, I slid down two stairs again and banged my right arm up. (Not Vlad's fault this time, but my own carelessness.) And the rotten cherry on this sundae of nonsense: all of this has left me exhausted, so I'm not able to get as much done as I want, and therefore I am feeling unproductive and guilty.


But! I got a new Gothic Charm School post written, I did slooooowly manage to get a couple of mending projects done, and the bedroom is still tidy after last month's Great Uncluttering. And I'm sloooowly stepping up my witchy work, because it makes me feel better.

Soooooo I've talked about this ridiculous modified* ketogenic diet that I'm doing, and how much it's helped with my inflammation and chronic pain issues. And it has, a LOT.

I've also talked about how I'm not actually doing it for weight loss, but that's a side effect I'll happily take.

Today I pulled some things out of the depths of the closets. I'm not gonna lie, being able to fit back into a couple of the bat wing hem overdresses that the Infamous BlueJay made me is fantastic.

*Modified because I have not actually started tracking my macro nutrients yet, I've just been eyeballing it. (I figure if I'm eating more fat than protein, and as few carbs as possible, I'm doing okay, and my results so far seem to support that.) I have to look into the various tracking apps and make sure that calorie counting is optional on them. Counting calories is a fast track to Crazytown for me.

Last night included insomnia AND non-stop nightmares.

I had a 7am meeting this morning.

I went back to bed after the meeting was done, had trouble falling back asleep, and then had more nightmares when I finally did fall asleep.

But I've had tea and coffee, I'm about to have lunch, the Stroppy One keeps checking on me to make sure I'm doing okay, and an anon on Tumblr sent me a super sweet and kind message. (Which made me tear up, because I am fragile right now.)

I hope all of you are doing okay. We'll all get through this.

BRAIN RACCOONS: Hey, let's feel mumphish and low!

ME: ... why?

BRAIN RACCOONS: 'cos? C'mon, we're going to do this!

ME: But things are going well. There's exciting things coming up! Work is good! THERE IS NO REASON TO FEEL LIKE THIS.



I'll be fine, this mood will pass. But right now, the Brain Raccoons are having an ennui party.
I looked at the current "official" LJ prompt for post ideas, then shuddered.

Open Letter
Do you have something you've always wanted to tell someone but never had the chance to say? Use this post to write an open letter to someone and finally tell them what you've always wanted them to know.

Shuddered because yes, I immediately thought of who I would address that letter to, and ... no. Just no. My telling them what I think they should know wouldn't make a difference, and I don't want to have any communication with them ever again.

There's also the idea of writing an open letter to Mom, but that wouldn't do anything but make me sad.

Um, happier things, happier things ... hey, BPAL is officially doing perfumes and mementos for Crimson Peak! I am so excited for the BPAL folks, AND I am so excited to smell these creations. Yes, I am at the point where I want Crimson Peak -themed everything. This should not be a surprise to anyone.

Other stuff:

- Work is good, and on the downswing of crazy right now. THANK GOODNESS.
- I miss Disneyland and my SoCal peeps a lot right now.
- I want someone to throw a fancy nighttime garden party that I can attend.
- All I want to do right now is lay on a velvet fainting couch, eat tasty snacks, drink some absinthe, and read trashy gothic novels. I DO NOT FEEL LIKE BEING PRODUCTIVE. Pity there's all this stuff I need to do.

Dear brain, listening to "Disloyal Order Of Water Buffalos" on repeat is fun, but probably says something slightly worrying about our current mood.

::puts on all the FOB, because if I'm going for a crazycakes day, I might as well go big::

Last night was ... bad. For assorted reasons. As a result there was NO WAY liquid liner was an option this morning, which meant some fiddling with sparkly red-black eye shadow to make my eyes look less swollen.

Tonight: round 1 of Goth Upkeep (bleach and pink dye), and probably some Beetlejuice cartoons.
