My Current List of Problems

-Being bored at work
-Sick of getting up and going to work everyday but still needing the paycheck
-Having a dining room full of bags and boxes and no idea where to put them
-Owning an excessive amount of books, towels and silverware even though I've given several away
-Staying at home way too much
-1 unfinished screenplay that I wanted to enter into 2 contests by the end of February
-No savings and a huge list of things I need and want
-Being tired all the time, and therefore not doing other things that will make my life better (cooking instead of eating fast food, exercising instead of napping, organizing the house, working on creative ideas, going out at night like a normal relatively young person...)
-No comfort with socializing
-Having trouble keeping in contact with my few non-work friends
-Feeling really busy yet knowing I don't actually do anything
-Seemingly being completely non-orgasmic and thereby becoming less and less interested in sex

I took care of two of these issues this weekend. The lack of energy thing has plagued me for months now, so I finally decided to give up my Flintstones Chewables and try a more mature vitamin. I picked that all day energy One-A-Day kind. I didn't feel anything on Saturday when I had my first dose (I had to cut the pill in half, btw. Why do vitamins have to be so fuckin' HUGE?), but I got a major burst of something Sunday night at 11pm. I started cleaning the dining room and got rid of 6 boxes and 5 bags of our combined crap, put together a bookcase and filled it and two other cases with books. I went to bed at 3am. You know I'm almost dead now, right? I mean, I can feel my eyes trying to go to sleep without my permission as I type. I'm trying so hard to keep busy at work today so things go by quickly and I can get home by 5pm to take a nap before heading out to review my first film (Music and Lyrics) in almost two months.

Do you think you might be anemic? That's been a BIG problem for me over the years and really accounts for the crazy, mind blowing fatigue.

Regular iron supplements always did crazy things to my system, so i'd skip taking them and end up feeling worse than I ever had. It was a vicious cycle.

Then, a friend introduced me to (DRUM ROLL!!!)

Platinum Easy Iron:

Check it out. The stuff is life changing. Of course my bathroom is still filthy and I haven't been to the gym in ages, but I don't want to sleep ALL the time and that is a huge improvement.

Tracey, anemia is one of the things I've been thinking about to explain the tiredness. Most of the women in my family have problems with it, and since I don't eat much meat that probably doesn't help either.

I'll look into your supplement, even though it sounds like something a boobyless female weightlifter would take. Thanks!

Boobyless female weightlifter! LOL. : )

Rest assured, of the many things I would call myself is someone who is without boobs or someone who is prone to heavy lifting. Rest. Assured.

I am familiar with being bored at work - but more of being bored of the whole process of GOING to work. Getting up & just making it. I hope the vitamins help. (Love your blog; looking forward to reading future posts.)

Where are you? Did you fall asleep?

citygirl said...

OMG! I totally fell asleep A LOT in the past month.

I'm so refreshed now.

Oh my god, I have the same thing: The mysterious growth of silverware supply. Where does it come from? Why can't I get it to stop?!!!

citygirl said...

I don't know where it comes from, but I know why. There's all the silverware, snuggled together in a warm, dark drawer. Naughtiness is bound to occur under those conditions. Don't you agree?
