Today has just felt out of sorts. I'm just now sitting down to my first cup of coffee and it's 2 p.m., if that is any indication. I've managed to do a few things today but it was mostly maintenance, not meaningful. The moment I knew something was up with today was when JoDee said that she was leaving and asked when I would get out of the bathroom. I didn't have an answer because, quite simply, I didn't know when I would stop pooping. Unfortunately one of the side effects of Ondansetron (nee: Zofran) is constipation so with the past few days of me taking it it's brought about a certain calm in one area (the nausea) at the expense of another area (the "couldn't stop pooping" of this morning). I literally was washing my hands when I realized I needed to go again. Fortunately that managed to subside after a while but it wiped me out. I did a little work on the Pepper&Carrot RPG but not much.

One thing that I did notice was that as the day got later and later I felt less and less empowered to take on new things. The most important thing to me was just getting cleaned up to start the day and all I felt like was just procrastinating that further and further away. Eventually I did get cleaned up but it felt less empowered than I would have liked.

I'm grateful that I retired when I did because I can't imagine trying to keep a workday going while like this. I'm tired and the only thing I want right now is sleep.

More as I know it.
