  • Mood:

There seems to be a lot of it about.

I have a theory that just about everyone I know seems to be depressed at the moment, and I think it's because it's got to the point in the year where it's been winter for so long that it's like it's never going to end, and we all feel like crap due to lack of daylight. However, I realise that it is not winter for everyone in the world, and that some people are probably enjoying some lovely sunshine right now (the lucky sods!).

So here is a totally unscientific livejournal poll on the topic. I wish it was possible to write livejournal polls that link together the answers from multiple questions and correlate the answers automatically. Oh well. Question 2 is deliberately vague because I set about writing time intervals like "2-3 days ago" and "4-7 days ago" before realising that I couldn't remember the answer to it that precisely myself, so it was probably pointless expecting anyone else to.

Poll #1331853 Feeling horrible?

    I am alive. Coping with the hiatus hernia. Perhaps in a one damned thing after another sort of way. Still, the symptoms have all improved…

    So I haven't written anything here since July, which is impressively lax even for me. In short, I have been suffering from the worst chronic fatigue…

  • Well, at least it's an answer

    Went to the doctor yesterday. My TSH level, which was apparently 1.93 uIU/mL in October 2015 is now up to the truly appalling 4.13 uIU/mL. Suddenly…
