Happy birthday to crisavec, mendoza, kythryne, and azhure! Wow! What a big birthday for awesome people. <3

Feeling better after three straight nights of actual sleep.

Only My Life
I wear stuff in my hair. (In the icon, a fabric flower with a feather and retro brooch in the middle.) One of my hair clips is a peacock feather. Most places I go, I get "Oh! Did you make that?"

Yesterday at the New Hampshire Sheep & Wool Festival: "Oh! Do you breed peacocks?"


I do need to start making my own hair stuff, if I can find an accessible craft store with the necessary stuff; the Pearl in Central Square closed down, and the indie art store there doesn't have this sort of thing.

Resetting the Seizure Counter
So Thursday I was thinking "that was probably - okay, almost certainly - a seizure, what with the crawling sensation coming down from my head and the seeing things as if through and aquarium and speech not working."

Friday I was like "...yeah. And then I came home and couldn't think in a straight line and was so exhausted I was in bed at 9."

So yeah. That was.

*resets counter*

Link Soup
* The Doozers' knitting song.
* Hot guys reading books.
* It's not often you see anti-Semitism in Boston.
* Haunted Mansion!

Daily Science
Traumatic experiences can scar for life, both mentally and physically. Now it seems they even leave chemical marks on DNA – in areas responsible for immune functions and memory.

Work, writing time, BARCC Peer Supe.

The Week Ahead
Tuesday: Date afternoon with feste_sylvain, then my first Red Sox game evar with BARCC colleagues, Adam, Elayna, Feste, and Feste's younger daughter.
Wednesday: The first BARCC info/interview session for prospective volunteers. Monday - Wednesday at work = prep for this; Thursday & Friday are prep for the session a week from today. After session, possibly a meetup.
Thursday and Friday: Much-deserved days home.

First and foremost- I'm sorry to see you are having to reset. But I'm glad it is this month (and not April) and you can take the tme to rest. Sucks though- you'd just reached a year. Grrr.

Second- that science link is fascinating. There are so many immune related diseases that are thought to be 'triggered' by either an illness or other totally unknown cause (some researchers have suggested stress or traumatic events). It will be interesting to see how this new finding with PTSD will impact scientists' understanding of the activation of those other diseases (as well as treating PTSD itself).

That's one more seizure you beat! *fist pump*

That book-reading guy site is great.

I hope you continue to feel better this week.

If you can easily get to Arlington Center, there's a great craft store called Play Time that sells ribbons, lace, fabric flowers, buttons, and other fun stuff. I've been there a couple of times with pookit (and she would probably know whether it has the supplies you need).

Sorry you had to reset the counter...

I hate the "maybe" seizures, especially their cousins, the overnight seizures. You know, the kind that you really have to guess at, because the only clue you might have had a seizure is that when you wake up you feel like you're in a post-ictal state.

Sorry to not be able to catch up with y'all on Sunday. Apparently bodies are guaranteed to fail after limited usage! Who knew?

Yargh. Sorry to hear you had a seizure, after being seizure-free for a year :(

Enjoy the Red Sox game!
