Wednesday’s child is full of…

When lip service to some mysterious deity permits bestiality on Wednesday and absolution on Sunday, cash me out.” Frank Sinatra

yeah whatever, Frank. what?

Hello Wednesday, you can pound dirt. Or sand, or whatever.  Today, not surprisingly, I feel like crap. Again. But whatever. I was very moody yesterday, not sure if that was evident. Moody last night. It’s a good thing my family (darn kids mostly) are so supportive so when I tell them I’m in a crabby mood they say “well, get over it”. ok nice. I even posted on facebook that I was getting stabby.  I had done a lot of research yesterday on hypothryoidisms and stuff and today I needed to go through with it.

Following through with things can be difficult when you don’t want to do them. “Why don’t you want to follow through with the endocrinologist, Pam?” you ask.  Because I don’t want to be told by one more dang person that there is nothing wrong with me. When I know there is.  Sure I ordered Mary Shomon’s book on hypothyroid something. But that wont be here for a while. But meanwhile I had to decide if I was gonna call an endo or not. And believe it or not, I did! The endo I called wasn’t taking new patients until August.  <chuckle> yeah riiiiight. So I moved on to the next doc on the list. And believe it or not I got in! of course, its not for a month (June) but that’s waaaay better than August. So I took it.

Now I’ve dealt with mood swings before. Quite a lot, actually. Normally I would grab a few donuts or a bag of chocolates and eat until I’m sick.  But not now. The new and slightly improved me or shall I say slightly vegan me is trying to be good. And it aint easy, I’ll tell ya. <slapping thigh> But I’m doing it.  But anyway. What do I do now that I’m having a mood swing? I don’t know.  I’m sure the Skinny Bitch book says to tough it out.  I do have some chocolates that the Man bought me for Mother’s Day but I will not take them. To be honest, I don’t even know where they are.

According to everyone, Serotonin and norepinephrine are the two suckers who are responsible for being calm and nice.  The B complex vitamins are said to be “essential” (hey I looked this stuff up) to mental health and “well being”. See for yourself:  http://depression.about.com/cs/diet/a/vitamin.htm.  As it so happens, I take (when I can remember) a vitamin B-12, so I’m right on time. But this article also says that alcohol and caffeine and sugar (and smoking) kill this stuff. Whew! Good thing I don’t smoke!   Dang, I just went to one of my go to sites: psychcentral.com and they say that white rice is a baddie. And I just ate a bowl of it for lunch (cuz I’m vegetarian now).  Here, don’t take my word for it: http://blogs.psychcentral.com/bipolar/2009/03/good-mood-foods/.  The article is about bipolar people but don’t let that scare you. Information is information. Wow, that was deep, wasn’t it?  I think I read an article about how low carb diets can affect cognition.  It says blah blah blah low carbs, blah blah blah glucose blah blah not enough energy for the brain: http://psychcentral.com/news/2008/12/12/low-carb-diets-can-affect-cognition/3498.html.  Whatever, cuz I’m like a carb whore. And we all know carbs gots them yummy sugars in them, right?  Besides, I just said so up there. But wait, this info kinda contradicts each other, doesn’t it?  I can’t win.

So…I’m gonna make a pot of coffee (shut up), eat an apple with some yum yum peanut butter and try not to cut anyone tonight.  If you see a crazy lady in a {cashmere} bathrobe, don’t approach her. toss her a rasberry.
