Grump

I am grumpy. I keep having to cancel meeting friends because of things that aren't my fault, and it's pissing me off. Of course, it's partially my fault for not organising them properly in the first place, and for never being arsed to go out, usually, but it's still annoying. I worry too much about annoying other people, so I very rarely ever turn round and go, "No, this is what I want to do". I wonder if I could go on an assertiveness training course? Heh.

Of course, the real problem is that I'm coming off my meds, so *everything* is pissing me off. I think it's psychosomatic; they're low-dosage, I'm coming off them very slowly, and it should SO not have had an effect by now. And also this is supposed to be the most depressing week of the year anyway. It's all dark and horrible, and my birthday was last week and I have no holidays planned, so there's nothing specific to look forward to. Ooh, I just remembered about the Discworld Con. When is it? Do the tickets sell out? Which of you lot are going?

Have a cute picture to balance out the grumpiness :)




theory slut
You are a Theory Slut. The true elite of the postmodernists, you collect avant-garde Indonesian hiphop compilations and eat journal articles for breakfast. You positively live for theory. It really doesn't matter what kind, as long as the words are big and the paragraph breaks few and far between.

What kind of postmodernist are you!?

Squee! There's an excellent site called Baruchito's Homecage all about the life of a hamster in Japan. It's adorable. Go there. Now.

Re: Discworld
Cool! I'll have to wait till I get paid, but I'll definitely buy a membership then.

Didn't know you were coming off the medication - maybe they feel guilty about leaving you on your own for 3 years? Who knows. I admire that so much - I'm drugged up to eyeballs at the moment and barely feel normal, so can't imagine losing that.

I just went to the doctor on Friday. Yeah, they weren't supposed to ignore me for years! I'm scared by the idea of coming off it, but I have stocked up with Bach's Rescue Remedy and valerian root pills :D and my mum assures me that they'll bung me back on it if it all goes wrong!
