Flush It Friday: The Fermenting Innards Edition

Hello and welcome to another edition of Flush It Friday. Its been a long time since I last wrote for the Toilet, and a lot has happened in my life since then. I guess the reason I decided to write this is because I desperately need to vent out some of the depression and stress that has been festering in my gut for the past month. Things have been difficult, and I really just need to lay everything out on the table here.

The Background

During this winter I really cracked down on my own self by trying to eliminate alcohol and by getting back in shape. This meant eating healthy and working out. I totally achieved this goal and got in peak physical shape, I mean I was in fucking shape goddamnit! Every morning I woke up at 5 am, ate my breakfast, and ran 4 miles before work. After work I ran some more, ate my dinner, and went the fuck to bed. This was my routine for about 5 months. My diet plan never changed either. Everyday it was the same goddamn meal plan. I guess you could say that I became a bit compulsive with it all and basically withered away to nothing. I lost 40 pounds in 5 months which brought me down to 140 pounds, and this is a guy that is six foot 2 inches tall (I basically was a walking skeleton). I was totally fine with this lifestyle because nothing was going wrong for me; in fact, everything was perfect. I was living the best I have ever lived.

On memorial day weekend I decided to visit my father who now lives in Tampa, Florida. This trip was planned for over a month, and I was basically dreading it. Sounds strange… Right? Yeah, I was basically horrified by the thought that I’d be changing up my meal plan and not being able to work out as much. Change is my worst nightmare, and the fact that I would be around people who drank booze for 4 days straight gave me so much anxiety. When the day came to fly down to see my father, the minute I stepped into his house it was beer-30, and of course I broke. I had about 3 beers that night and ate a bunch of food just before passing out. The next day I felt shitty but not too bad and decided to run. After my run I felt fine and decided that day I’d just really let loose. So I drank more beer and ate more food that my body was not familiar with. I even drank a bunch of really high octane espressos from the espresso machine my dad had. After a day of stuffing my face with greasy food, caffeine, and alcohol I went to bed. The next day was the start to a long and painful journey through hell.

The Hell Journey  

As many of you know, since my vacation I’ve been batting an unknown stomach disorder for the past month, and not much has improved unfortunately since May 29th. I’ve had countless tests done that basically all came back normal, yet I can’t eat food without feeling sick all of the time. My GI doctor suspected that I may have Gastroparesis which is a condition that affects the stomach muscles and prevents proper stomach emptying. The test results showed some delay at the end, but it was very minimal. My endoscopy showed no inflammation of the stomach lining or the esophagus, and my ultrasound for my gallbladder came back normal as well. I just had a CT Scan done today and will have the results by Monday of next week. So basically for a month I’ve been experimenting with foods to see what works. Literally the only things that I can eat without throwing up and feeling completely miserable afterwards are white bread, pureed cooked carrots, some baby foods, bananas, and saltine crackers/pretzels. I can also eat/suck on black licorice and eat popsicles. Everything else feels like lead in my stomach which makes me severely nauseous. Things high in fiber, fat, and protein especially. Portion is another big factor here; I can really only eat two thirds of a cup of food every 2 hours or so. If I exceed this I will just barf all of what I ate into oblivion.

So as you can probably gauge, this has been a stressful and agonizing journey for me this month. I can’t run anymore because I’m too weak from not getting the calories and nutrition I need. I can’t do my job efficiently without being in constant discomfort and distress. The list goes on and on here. Oh!!! I almost forgot. My birthday which was this month was a real swell one. Throwing up and not even being able to have cake or ice cream was a real fucking downer. I’m tired of throwing up all of the time and not being able to eat. I’m literally tired period. This illness is so draining. I can only spend so much money on supplements, tests, medicine, and doctors. Nothing is working here. Something has to give here, guys.


The Good: As of today I got my doctor to fill out my company’s short-term disability form which will allow me to have a month to just focus on fixing my gut. Dealing with work and my illness has been overwhelming to say the least. My stomach is a full-time job, and that is more important at the moment. I’m so grateful that I have a job that has benefits. Also, my job is secured for 3 months.

The Bad: Still no real progress here, guys. I’m still spewing chunks, and I’m still a miserable wreck. Can they just replace my stomach with an artificial one? That would be a nice!

The Ugly: The amount of vomit that I’ve spewed the past month. ULTIMATE FLUSH!!!

Spew away in the comment section below, guys!!! I leave you with some oldschool Carcass. This song is my life at the moment.

        Not drinking this year. Had a close call last year being drunk and sloppy. I can’t teach my toddler how to flick his boogers at his mom with a Jason Pierre Paul club hand

        Depends where you are. When I lived in Albuquerque. Every Fourth of July and New Years Eve. They would have to have a news story about gravity. Because so many people liked to shoot their guns in the air. They had to explain what goes up must come down. Inevitably people they weren’t aiming at get shot.

        • Rob M

          Ive heard about that…wish theyd shoot straight up and experience the effects of gravity firsthand

        If he isn’t he will be paying for the pole and fire hydrant and labor to replace them. Insurance doesn’t cover that kind of stupidity.

        • I wonder if I can upgrade my insurance policy to cover drunken stunts.

          • Can confirm. No.

          • more beer

            It would be cool. But the loses in drunken stunts would be astronomical.

  • Max

    Listen to your doctors before even bothering to give my stupid ramblings the time of day, but I can’t help thinking this might be psychologically-related?

    You describe the anxiety you felt visiting your family, for example. Perhaps you’ve gotten into the idea that your body is punishing you for lapsing from your diet regimen, and that has compounded into the symptoms you’re now suffering. After all, the tests aren’t showing much that’s physically wrong with your digestive system.

    I know what I’m proposing is generic “mind over matter” garbage and I don’t wish to be patronizing. But seriously, I have collected a whole range of stress-related problems over the last decade or so – virtually all of them vanquished by a guy in a labcoat telling me they’re just due to stress rather than any deeper medical problem. You’d be surprised how easily they go away once your brain is convinced of that.

    • Just from the timeline of things I don’t think it’s stress-induced. He was stressed before and somewhat during the outing with his family but he’s been back for a while. I’m guessing the extreme change in diet and the addition of alcohol just did a really bad number on his stomach chemistry.

      • Max

        Probably true.

      • The Tetrachord of Archytas

        Sounds too like it could be a built up malnutrition from the period before. As I’ve worked on getting back into shape, a lot of the research I’ve come across seems to show that an extended cutting period with a lot of cardio is pretty hard on the body. Its why marathon runners are prone to serious heart problems later in life. Of course this is a stomach issue and I’m not a doctor…

        • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

          Once the body’s adjusted to living off of minimal fat, it tends to stay that way until it’s slowly introduced to food all over again. There’s been quite a number of times in the past where people from famine stricken areas finally get to where the food is, and have major league problems/death after gorging themselves on food so suddenly. Once the body is conditioned to something, switching it suddenly can be dangerous or deadly (i.e., delerium tremens)

    • I was thinking the same, but it seems like it wouldn’t last for this long if it was a mental thing. I don’t know, it’s a complex situation that has every one including my self very perplexed. Today is my last day of work for a month, so I’m hoping the lack of work stress will help.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Good: got paid yesterday

    Bad: tornado watch in my area.

    Ugly: Nothing

  • JWEG

    Good:

    I’m well into my Canada Day mixtape – which isn’t quite accurate, but “tunes downloaded in FLAC form from Bandcamp” doesn’t sound quite as retro cool as “mixtape”.

    I plan to finish the evening off with a Canadian (mostly-horror) film marathon. In the few hours between I think I may just go out and see what’s going on in the neighbourhood and/or downtown.

    http://i.imgur.com/DxyyYUw.jpg

    Bad: I’ll leave that for next week.

    Ugly: Ditto.

  • A.P.

    Good: so much this last month, I don’t know where to begin. I’ve been working in construction and remodeling after not having much going on work-wise for a couple of months. My girlfriend with whom I live got two new jobs that pay a lot better and will be great for her career in medicine. I got a new instrument after not really having one for a while, and most importantly, we got a new kitten!
    Bad: we’ll be moving to accommodate her new jobs and our landlord wants to be fucking difficult with us about it, meaning we’ll probably both lose our significant deposit and have to pay rent for a room we aren’t even staying in.
    Ugly: we’re moving from Austin to Ft. Worth, or about 257 miles, and that shit is always ugly.

    I hope you feel better soon, Tyree. Keep us updated on the situation!

    • CyberneticOrganism

      What instrument?

      • A.P.

        2014 Ibanez RG927RQFM. I got it for a grand under retail and I’m so unspeakably happy with it. I had a 2010 RG7321 that I got new until really recently and even though the shape of the neck is the same and all, the difference is still night and day between the two.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          Sweeet, I’ve got a Schecter 7 that I love but I know Ibanez has a lot of 7 string fans

  • Dubbbz

    You gotta get better, dude.

  • when compared to that, i’ve got no Good, Bad, or Ugly. i just want you to feel better!!
    Max brings up an interesting point… do you feel anxious a lot? are you able to relax ‘n chill? i used to be a nervous/anxious fella, always clenching my stomach without even knowing it. i would worry almost 24/7 about things like “how do people perceive me?” or “am i disappointing my boss?”. … but that’s just a theory that we could scratch off the list.
    have the docs ruled out pancreatitis? the symptoms sound similar. and i know there exists “chronic pancreatitis” (versus acute, which is what Waynecro and i had).
    were i a praying man, i’d offer to do so… so in lieu of that i’ll just send over good vibes and an offer to talk if you ever need halp. i could also ask some of the GI docs who work at the hospital if they have heard of any rare disorders which share symptoms like that.
    i’m sure the CT scan will show something. keep us updated?
    hehe, your WordPress bio

    • Waynecro

      I wondered about some sort of pancreatic affliction as well; however, I had pancreatitis multiple times, and I couldn’t eat or drink anything during those periods–I couldn’t even keep down a mouthful of water. Plus, the abdominal/lower-back pain was agonizing.

      • tertius_decimus

        Reading these lines can be depressive, big time. Upvoting such posts may be kinda… At loss for words, to be honest. There’s nothing “likable” in the message, internet sometimes confuses with artificial sympathy buttons which were established for clickbait dirtbags but in such cases as you describe it’s safe to upvote out of solidarity. So, upvoted. If I could really help, I’d help. 🙁

        No one deserves to suffer from such heavy diseases. Be healthy, people!

        • Waynecro

          It’s OK, man. I’m better now. Thanks, though. I just don’t know whether Tyree’s symptoms quite line up with those common to pancreatitis. The pancreas can effect the entire endocrine system, so who knows? Sometimes an upvote is just to show support.

          • tertius_decimus

            Why it’s so difficult to diagnose?

          • Waynecro

            Pancreatitis shouldn’t be difficult to diagnose, but two doctors misdiagnosed it when I used to get it a lot.

          • tertius_decimus

            Different clinics or two different doctors from one clinic?

          • Waynecro

            Different doctors from different clinics. One doctor thought I was just depressed, and the other doctor thought I had a pulled muscle or something. It was ridiculous.

          • tertius_decimus

            Could be too rude to blame either one, cause mistakes happen in everything we do, but at least in CIS countries it happens so often, that we don’t go to hospitals until we get terminal stages of diseases. Doctors both don’t give a fuck and aren’t professional enough to diagnose and cure properly. Medication scam is also an unattractive factor. Drug stores selling same meds under different names. Those have pricing levels and corresponding packaging for every price tag. If you don’t know synonymous pills, you’re screwed: doctor prescribes the most expensive pill possible, because they’re affilated with pharmaceutic shmucks and get $$$ for prescribing expensive meds. That’s why it’s always a bad idea to get a disease.

            On that “positive” note, I wanna visit dermatologist for 1,5 years but can’t. I know it would cost me an arm and a leg. Too bad, I know nothing about medication.

Needless to say, this narcotic shit gave me weakness I’ve never experienced before even after strongest exhaustion of physical activity. Shoulda drink what worked for me this time again.

            That is an over the counter herbal supplement. So it wouldn’t be covered in there. This book is for prescription drugs.

          • tertius_decimus

            Got it. Maybe it’s due to difference in what CIS doctors perceive as “prescription drugs”, i.e. “prescribe whatever the drugstore has on the shelves”.

          • more beer

            They are probably much stricter here.

            It’s far from an educated guess on my end, but one of the things I was guessing would be trouble with the bile ducts.

    Bad: Had very little to do for a lot of the week, doing nothing when I get home.
    Ugly: the realization I need to pick up working out again else I’ll get fat
    Hope you get better tyree

  • Get well, Tyree. You’re doing a great job, mang-o!

    Bad: regular bad things at the country, nothing that is killing me anyways, except THIS FUCKING HIGH HUMIDITY TEMPERATURE.

    Ugly: entering all sweat to the job because THIS FUCKING HIGH HUMIDITY TEMPERATURE.

    Good: this new job doesn’t block me all the shit like it was in the last office, so I could enjoy some new records I wanted to check. Wife and family are good. Soon, I will be able to play some GameCube and Wii games, a dream come true.

    Weird friday moment: today I was gifted a digital album in Bandcamp, a highly expensive cold coffee with chocolate and a bottle of Lipton Ice Tea. Wut?

    Working on: Master thesis and the regular job. Also, the classes I give are getting more on the Internet because the college I work is pretty dangerous right now to assist. This July I will have a pre-defense of my thesis and I am anxious as fuck, but I’m doing my best to give a great pre-thesis defense with a very tight theorization.

    Song of my week: great musicianship and those proggy drums are killer!

        Pretty sure Canadian Twitter was all aflutter that Iceland’s new (equivalent of the) ‘First Lady’ is a former Canadian farmgirl.

        That’s kind of a big deal for us, not counting that we could obviously have a new First Lady of sorts of our own every single time we elect a new Prime Minister. We’d ever let that realization get in the way of a good old fashioned social media freak-out, though.

    Tyree, that sounds like a rough fuckin’ road you’ve been/are on. Hoping it rights itself soon.

  • tertius_decimus

    Get well, Tyree! It sucks to feel that your organism is worn-out gear that doesn’t work properly anymore. Like a chainring with abraded teeth. Like a burnt clutch. Like a missing turbine blade. Doesn’t work, needs a replacement.

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    I love seeing Tyree’s name back in the Author line, but damned if this isn’t the worst reason possible!

    Bad: the verge of insanity. The mood… the mood… Not sure if seppuku while listening to “The Forest Of Insomnia” or “Earth Heals Herself”. Call that attention whoring — that’s true and honest.

    Had anyone such a condition when he/she couldn’t cope with emotional pressure him/herself and was asking for help from whoever? Usually people hesitate to ask for help, cause it’s too personal to air grievances on public or they don’t want to bother other people with their problems.

    • Waynecro

      Hang in there, buddy. You can beat this.

      There’s no shame in asking for help. Sometimes things become too big for us to handle alone, but we’re all right here in your corner.

    Good: I am going out to a show tonight with prints in hand for the promoter and headlining band of the painting I did that was used for the flyer.
    Bad: I am worried about our boy Tyree, and hate how miserable he is. I also still really miss my dog you guys, and I’m starting to wonder if I can even handle getting another one.
    Ugly: Yo momma.

    • CT-12

      You can’t let your past dog get you down; there are plenty of animals in a shelter who could make you feel better and use your love as well.

  • Abradolf Lincler

    Get well soon, Grindlord! Ill be blastin’ for ya!

    Git Gud: thanks to freedom day, i have a two day weekend, and a short week. Ill be hosting a cookout for my one friend abd our girlfriends. No one has made another offer on the house, so everything is on track there. Records ordered, patches ordered. Birthday next monday.

    Bad: Found out on Father’s day my dad has terminal lung cancer.

    Ugly: not tapoor, hes been cute lately.

    • Waynecro

      I’m really sorry to hear about your dad, man.

      • Abradolf Lincler

        yeah, ive been avoiding mentioning it due to the sentiments and stigma that smoking has around here and in society lately

    • tertius_decimus

      🙁

    • more beer

      Sorry about your dad man that sucks.

    • Dubbbz

      Sorry about your dad, dude.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Oh man, I’m sorry to hear about your dad dude.

    • Abradolf Lincler

      thank you everyone for your well wishes.

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        Your good is really good though man. Have fun this weekend.

        • Abradolf Lincler

          Im always gittin gud, BtR.

          i saw your progress on your battle vest. i now consider us to be in a race.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Oh, shit…

          • Waynecro

            Oh, it’s on now!

          • more beer

            Damn!

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            He has me at a slight advantage. He has ordered patches already and they’re probably way more kvlt than the ones I had in mind for mine.

          • more beer

            But his more kvlt patches are not what matter. Because a battle vest is about your personal taste.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            This is true. Did you see the pic of mine from the other day?

          • more beer

            No the beginning of the week was extremely hectic. Was it in the battle vest post?

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Yeah Stanley wants to see too, so here it is.

          • more beer

            Nice and you have some punk rock going too.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Naturally! IF you look close at the buttons you will notice Public Enemy along with a few other oddballs

          • more beer

            Like I said personal taste.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Thats all you’ll get from me!
            I have Ross the Boss, Immortal and Clutch patches to put on it. My next order will include Accept, Blind Guardian and Iron Maiden.

          • more beer

            Right on.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            i was hoping i would see a BG patch on your vest. But Immortal is nice (thot about getting one myself). and you know i think clutch >>>>>>>

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            I was hoping to see one as well. hahaha
            I have the Pure Holocaust cover to put on it.
            I didn’t know you liked CLUTCH!

          • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

            Been listening to a lot more punk the last couple of days, especially Anti-Nowhere League and Action Pact.

          • more beer

            It’s a start.

          • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

            I’m getting my start on punk some 21 years later? :-p

          • Stanley

            Nice DK patch. I played Fresh Fruit to death growing up. I have a few LPs here in the USA that I brought back with me too. Bedtime and Frankenchrist (with the HR Giger dick pick poster).

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Thanks!
            That’s awesome man. Not gonna lie and I mean no disrespect, its funny to think that you were once heavily into Punk and Hardcore.

          • Stanley

            That’s what happens when you are as old as the hills. That stuff was popular in the mid to late eighties.

          • more beer

            Don’t complain about being old as the hills. I wouldn’t trade being there for the golden age of metal for anything.

          • Stanley

            Neither would I.

            But now that I think about, I’d take 10 years.

          • more beer

            I am good even after adding another year yesterday.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            DUDE! Happy Birthday MORE BEER!!

          • more beer

            Thank you bro.

          • Stanley

            Belated happy birthday. I’m sure you celebrated it with, um, more beer!!!

          • more beer

            I actually just had a couple with a lady friend and smoked some herb.Thank you.

          • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

            Happy birthday!

          • more beer

            Thanks bro.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            happy birthday brother, ill see you one year on july 11

          • more beer

            Thanks man.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Ha! That makes sense.

            How often do you go back and listen to it?

          • Stanley

            The punk/hardcore stuff, not so much (except AF’s Victim in Pain and the Crumbsuckers two albums). I still listen to all the thrash stuff though.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Right on Stanley.

          • more beer

            On one of Jello’s spoken word albums. He talks about being arrested for the Giger poster in Frankenchrist. It is an amusing bit. But also terrifying.

          • Stanley

            I don’t know why. Lol. (Rfi)

          • more beer

            Do you think the one wearing the condom is the one that pushed the LA district attorney over the edge? Which led to the pornagraphy charges.

          • Stanley

            Yep. It’s gotta be. It’s definitely not the other 7 unhooded members that struck a chord.

          • more beer

            That’s just art. The one with the condom fucking perverse.

          • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

            Lol, can’t forget this spoken word classic:

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z14iLqis5sw

          • NICE! I was working on mine last night and this morning. Added some more studs to the pockets. Also, that Repulsion patch is a new edition.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Looking SICK!

          • Stanley

            Kvlt personal taste = kvlt patches. Win, win.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            Ill just say Emperor back patch, Celestia, GBK, Baptism, and Carpathian Forest patches already OTW

          • more beer

            But not everyone is that kvlt.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            I’m definitely not!

          • Stanley

            Show us the picture of your vest.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            It is down below, good sir

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            What does your progress look like?

          • Abradolf Lincler

            i cant decide on the jacket yet is the problem

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            I ended up just buying the first one I found that fit me. I would really like to get a black vest however

          • Abradolf Lincler

            i want a jacket, not a vest. and dark denim does weird shit to my self image.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Oh, okay. Any luck so far?

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            finding ones that you like

          • Abradolf Lincler

            the gf wanted me to go for leather but i almost want some acid wash denim

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa
          • Stanley
          • Abradolf Lincler

            tbh fam, that shit would never fit me

            i shop at big and tall stores

          • Abradolf Lincler

            “it wont button” . . .
            *hulks out

          • Stanley

            Listen to Sweety’s advice. He says to buy a small size as you’ll never button it up anyway, and you don’t want it flapping about in the mosh pit.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            i was just kidding, ive been drinking cheap whiskey since 5:30. i was saying dark denim doesnt work so well. it is a pretty sweet jacket

          • Stanley

            I was just kidding about the mosh pit part. I fuckin’ hate the fuckin’ mosh pit. Quit that shit right now!

          • Abradolf Lincler
          • Stanley

            Buy a big one. They do come in different sizes.

    • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

      Damn, sorry to hear about your dad. 🙁

    • Lacertilian

  • TheCheezFace

    The good: just finished all my business for this semester as far as college goes, and now I get to go back to my home town next week.

    The bad: my hair is falling excessively (I can see little parts of my head through the strands in some places), which is probably linked to stress.

    The ugly: the situation in Rio. Not looking good, at all.

  • The Tetrachord of Archytas

    Tyree, we don’t really interact on here, but Ive gotten so many solid tune choices from you over time and I can’t help but feel bummed and seriously hope things start getting better!

    Good: Got a little big bear trip for the weekend with the lady. Happens to be our anniversary too.

    Bad: mortgage industry, everyone who works in it either capes or has (loud) prostate issues. And clients are either paranoid or think they “know how it reeeaaaally works” both of these lead to the same thing, they move too slow that by the time they’re ready to move, markets changed and you can’t help them anymore.

    Ugly: the Information Age

  • CyberneticOrganism

    Everyone just take care of yourselves this weekend and beyond. I’ve heard too many stories lately about people dying or getting really sick.

    Get well Tyree, seriously. Focus on healing and you’ll be back to that healthy schedule and blasting again soon.

  • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

    Hoping you get well soon, man, and hoping this is something that’s short term rather than long term.

    The Good: Chill week, as usual. Hoping by the end of next week, I’ll be in the nice big cushy room up front (roomie’s supposed to be getting her stuff in the next few days, or most likely it’s getting tossed. So fucking glad to be rid of her, and things have improved drastically since she left). The room I have now is more or less like a spruced up storage space with no windows, so having windows and a gorgeous view of the skyline is something I’m looking forward to.
    The Bad: Nothing, really. Humidity and sinuses, but that comes with the territory this time of the year.
    The Inspirational:

  • tigeraid

    Thank you for the uuuuh… Extremely detailed recap. I think about my weight loss journey, and my diabetes scare, and realize that really wasn’t so bad compared to what you’re going through. Stiff upper lip, and all that.

    The Good: I’m not particularly Nationalistic, but it’s Canada Day so uuuh… happy that, eh? It’s a three-day weekend, more importantly.

    The Bad: our new puppy goes absolute batshit over fireworks. Which we will now have to spend the entire three-day weekend putting up with.

    The Ugly: Well uuuuh, nothing compared to what Tyree is going through.

    • Abradolf Lincler

      Hail Canada

      • u missd splled America, son!

      This crushes life. I’ve seen Eisenwald pushing this release a lot. If you get it on BC right now there’s no shipping cost. Maybe it’s a glitch?

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    Most importantly, dude, so sorry about the stomach. Sounds horrific. Not religious so I can’t pray for you but hope with my heart it can get figured out.

    Good: At work we got a girl back from maternity leave and a previous temp on a job share so I won’t have to do so much cataloguing. Cataloguing is ok for a day or two, but not in endless piles when only a couple of you are on it and the other cat has her own priority business. Also, quite drunk and just watched Complex World (1992), a rather good offbeat satirical comedy about rock ‘n roll, terrorism and booze. Generally amusing/diverting writing and it benefits tremendously from being set in a real rock ‘n roll club (the Heartbreak Hotel) and the central band (the Young Adults) being a real band.

    Bad: The UK is being handed over to the racists and the hard right, the centre has become irrelevant and the left spend all their time pissing on each other. I would just make cynical jokes about it, but I was chatting for a month odd to a rad Romanian girl (digs booze, digs metal, Negura Bunget used to play in her yard) who moved locally, and was planning to meet her, but now she’s moved back to her homeland indefinitely because she feels weird about Britain now, and I can’t sincerely reassure her. This place stinks.

    Dude I fucking feel you. It isn’t the same thing but being so focused on how your body processes food is absolutely fucking draining; I basically develop IBS (#tmi) when I’m under stress and since I’ve spent the last two years plagued by anxiety and debilitating depression I have to be so fucking careful what I eat. When you’re already exhausted it becomes so much harder to just look after yourself. I hope things improve for you!
