Lovely medical stuff, fascinating, I'm sure.
No one commented on my crappy day yesterday :(

It did in fact, get even worse, because I came home and sat in front of the computer for a bit attempting to write, and then came over Very Weird: itchy all over, and dizzy, and twitchy. I basically felt as though I was going to have a seizure, even though I haven't in decades. This particular set of symptoms happens every so often, and I still haven't had a seizure in decades, but it was kinda alarming. I dozed for a bit, and slept for a bit, and then when Richard came in about midnight I was the colour of... porridge. It shouldn't be possible for someone of my natural skintone to get paler than Richard, let alone as pale as I was. It might have been a migraine. My head was hurting, very specifically behind my right eye. I dunno. Whatever it was, it was Not Fun and I didn't enjoy it.

Also, I must have been looking rough when I came home because the guy in the station (who knows me because he gets the wheelchair ramp for me) asked if I was all right. I didn't really think anything of it because I knew I looked tired and stressed, but maybe I was pale as hell then. Huh.

In other news, I got a letter from Sutton Hospital today "inviting" me to make an appointment with their chronic fatigue service. How long has that taken? I phoned up immediately & the appointment is on Tuesday 11th December at 2.30pm.

Now I'm really tired and a bit disoriented. I don't normally fall asleep at 10pm and wake up at 9.50am (with an hour and a half in the middle of wakefulness because I needed to shovel food in and take my meds), and I only woke up because the phone rang. Blargh.

Thanks! Me too. I have no real idea what the chronic fatigue service will be like, but apparently it's an hour-long appointment, which sounds oddly serious. I have organised a friend with a car to take me there.

Sorry for commenting failure (the last post but also in general). I'm bad at responding in general, and get more hesitant on public posts, which most of yours are.

Cool that you're writing stuff, although I haven't actually read it (referring back to your previous post, I am a) not really into even vaguely erotic fiction, would probably be b) traumatised by reading it when it's been written by someone I know, although not c) upset by the canon trauma and dubcon (the last Elder Scrolls I played was Daggerfall (16 years ago...), and I think I've since forgotten all about the world)).

Student demonstration was annoying for travel and doesn't seem to have been too successful, from what little I've read about it. Marching to Kennington does seem a bit odd.

I hope that particular weird medical thing doesn't happen more - doesn't sound good at all.

Edited for missing ). Having doubly nested brackets is generally not a good idea anyway.

Huh. I hadn't even thought of public posts being a barrier to receiving comments. I wonder if that's true for other people?

I post publicly basically because what I'm saying isn't private, and sometimes you get interesting comments left by people you don't actually know. (Also you know if I do hit the Friends-Only lock that what I'm saying really is private).

I should ask to see if this is true for others as well. I'd rather post friends-only and have people actually comment then publicly and... not.

Well don't make changes on my account. I'm just conscious that when I'm commenting on public posts comments (and whatever I'm commenting on) may be read by future employers, future friends, journalists, libel lawyers, or anyone else. I've also got different groups of friends and colleagues online and offline and I tend to keep them all compartmentalised - public comments might go across compartments. I should probably not have all my online identities so readily connected to my real name.

I don't actually think any of that has a practical impact on what I would post in a comment on your LJ, but it adds to the degree of overthinking which deters me from actually posting. But I would think it's an issue that I should deal with rather than you...

Sorry I only just saw this and your post from yesterday - I really don't check LJ as often as I should. Hope you are feeling a bit better soon. Hugs and stuff.

hope cfs service is useful. i mostly check lj on phone and hard to write comments so rarely do.

HL, I do read your posts and they're always seems useful to keep me updated on how you're doing. However I do feel a bit helpless about replies. Just know that we are there and sending positive beams. {{hugs}} Marjorie
