I'm a 20-something Aussie girl who is an easily distracted procrastination-champion...So of course, a tumblr is a necessary addition to my life. This is just a collection of things that I like, things that amuse me and things that inspire me. Oh and there's a stray thought here and there…
I drank a litre and a half of tea yesterday. After making the second cup, I thought “screw that” and made enough to fill a 1L thermos. Then I went and sat by the fire and watched movies, drinking tea all afternoon. It was glorious.
Did a massive cleanout and tidy-up of my room, now I’m sitting here with incense and a candle burning as it pours with rain outside, lovely. All I need now is some tea and it will all be perfect. Somebody fetch me one? :)
Pretty annoyed. I just got some blood test results back today that included vitamin d levels. They’ve been consistently low and despite religiously taking vitamin d supplements religiously every single evening for the last month, they’ve still dropped! Wtf!? (And it’s not like I’ve just been taking the 1000mg you’re meant to keep them adequate, I’ve been taking 2000mg in order to raise them - along with calcium and magnesium to aid absorption.)
Ok, yes, you’re also meant to get it from sunlight, but I can’t do that every day. The amount of time you’re meant to be in the sun for just happens to be how long it usually takes for me to get sunburn because I’m naturally super-pale and also live under A MASSIVE FUCKING HOLE IN THE OZONE LAYER.
Vitamin d deficiency has strong links to hashimoto’s and hypothyroidism, so it’s all extra frustrating - low vitamin d will just exacerbate the problem… Oh and it’s not like I can just take loads, because you can get sick from too much vitamin d at once! Really not sure what I’m meant to do about this. Can’t wait to get to an endocrinologist who can tell me what the fuck to do to straighten this all out.
Also sad to just find out that Bomb Girls is being cancelled when I’ve only just gotten around to watching it, damn! It’s too good to take off the air - especially when there are SO many crap shows out there. Such a shame to take off a brilliant one and replace it with (most likely) yet another shit one.
other people: wow what a perfect morning for a run
me: wow what a perfect morning to go the fuck back to sleep
oh thank you! on both counts :)
while i’m at it, i also dislike taylor swift and lady gaga. and many many more current popstars.
Was temporarily locked out of my fb account for trying to access it “too many times” - only thing is, I hadn’t tried to open it at all today until this evening.
Seems someone was trying to get in. Pretty pathetic. There isn’t even anything interesting there. I am far more active on tumblr (like a million times more - so if bitches want to find “dirt” on me, fb probs isn’t the place they’re going to find it haa).
First off, an open letter to my thyroid antibodies/TPO/thyroid peroxidase whatever:
Please stop eating my thyroid, I need it for energy and stuff.
I got some blood test results back today, and they were all fine except for my TPO (thyroid antibodies) level. They’re meant to be under 35. In 2011 they were 31, in 2012 they were at 42, and as of last Friday they were up at 234! Apparently that can be indicative of Hashimoto’s. As of a few months ago my other thyroid levels (TSH and FT4) were fine though, so maybe I need them retested, in case the TSH is high and/or FT4 is low - apparently that’s more indicative of Hashimoto’s than just elevated TPO alone. Who knows. I wonder what they were when I first started taking thyroxine last year. When I finished, and was feeling a little better but still feeling bad, the TPO was at 42 (slightly elevated). Since stopping the thyroxine, I’ve gone on to feeling more and more tired and it turns out that the TPO is about 5 times higher than that! Hmm, seems to be a pattern or something? Apparently taking thyroxine can help bring down antibody levels…
oh i’m sorry about that, what a major bummer!! after all that work!
lol yeah, was rather displeased. and i was so tired that after falling asleep that night i didn’t wake till 3pm the next day! sheesh!
hahaah wow you’re a busy bee! you must be great with sewing to do all of that by hand, i hope it all turns out, it sounds really pretty from the colors!
ahh, finished my friend’s skirt, got myself a corset top, made most of my skirt today, but then i started crashing around half an hour before the party starting. had some dinner and some juice etc but just kept getting tireder and tireder. it started an hour ago and now i practically can’t move, i’m so tired. drained, trembly, headachey, constantly yawning, ugh, literally can not make it tonight :( it’s such a shame. was so excited and had so much fun buzzing around organising my costume but i’m just screwed. was rather tired today and kept pushing though it to get everything done, but you can only push through it for so long. so lame. i’m so annoyed that this happens so much
