No sleep for me. I’ve turned nocturnal again recently. But that’s not the main reason I’m awake right now.
I was awake for 30 hours straight the other day. No idea why, I just didn’t want to sleep. So yesterday I then slept for 20 hours. This got me doubly dehydrated, despite drinking a total of a liter of water throughout the day during my brief awakenings. (Although now my body laughs at such a puny amount of water!) I’ve now been awake for eight hours, but still feel awful. It would probably be dangerous for me to go to sleep now without being fully hydrated. So I’m awake still, trying to catch up.
Staring at the wall. Continue reading “Nocturnal Musings #20: Junk”
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. I’ve never participated in this meme before, so I’ll start with last week’s because I know it’s one I can do pretty easily.
Top Ten Books Read in One Day (alphabetical by author, cuz that’s how I roll):
- Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh
- Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave
- The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
- The Fifth Mountain by Paulo Coelho
- Today Means Amen by Sierra DeMulder
- Humans: An A to Z by Matt Haig
- When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
- Is It All In Your Head?: True Stories of Imaginary Illness by Suzanne O’Sullivan
- But God, Wouldn’t I Be More Useful to You If I Were Healthy? by Esther Smith
- When Chronic Pain and Illness Take Everything Away by Esther Smith
Some of these I can’t believe I read in a single day. Everyone Brave is Forgiven is 424 pages, but a quick read, while Is It All In Your Head? is only 291 pages, but I read more slowly because I was enthralled by the medical stuff. But no matter the length, once I hit that spot, that always-present point-of-no-return, my fate was sealed!
Has anyone else ever read any of these books? I can’t seem to find anyone else on the planet with my taste in literature…🙄
This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this!
Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)? My first name, no. My middle name is my mother’s first name (same with my brother; his middle name is my father’s first name.)
Music or silence while working? It really depends on what I’m doing and what kind of mood I’m in. I have music on right now and I generally do while I’m blogging. But while I’m writing in my journal, I’m a bit more introspective, so I prefer silence. If I happen to be doing anything else, like folding laundry, I like music to be on.

I guess it’s been awhile since I’ve written a real post. Since it’s Endometriosis Awareness Month, I’ve been trying to reblog my better endo-related posts to raise awareness at a time when it’s most important. You can check out my new endo-specific page here, with information, expanding resources, and links to my blog posts. It’s pretty and has that new-page smell! 😊🎗
I guess, when it comes down to it, I’ve been using this month to hide. From myself, from the world. Some good things and some not-so-good things have happened, which you would know if you read any of my weekly Monday “Share Your World” posts. (But the vast majority of people who read those are people who don’t actually know me, so what do the finer details of my life matter to them?)
I’m on this merry-go-round that happens to be a roller coaster at the same time. And I really want to get off it so I can puke (no, really, I am actually uncomfortably nauseous right now, but it’s become a constant part of my life, too, so whatever.) Or at least purge…something.
