I am such an effing moron. I spent 10 minutes wandering around the parking lot after work looking for my car. When I first got out there I tried to open a car but the interior light didn't come on so I thought it was someone else's car that looked like mine. Basically, 10 minutes was spent circling the aforementioned car before I saw a dent in the side and realized it was my car and that I needed to try and open it again. I'd already decided that my car had been stolen and was wondering how long it was going to take to file a police report and worrying about how pissed Sweety would be when I told him I let his car get stolen.
When I got home I didn't pull into the garage, just parked in the drive so as to not wake the dogs. I'm getting all my stuff together and I hear a car alarm going off. For some reason, I thought I'd accidentally set off the neighbor's alarm. Then I realized that the noise was coming from inside my garage and that I'd hit the button to set the alarm off on the car that was in there. So much for my plan of not waking the dogs or Sweety.
And then, when taking Tiny dog out to pee, I tripped on her and sent her sprawling. I was just glad she didn't get squashed.
I am a danger to myself.
And I think I'm going through early menopause or something. I've been having the most disgusting night sweats. I mean sheet soaking stuff. During the day I'll wake up and move from the puddle on my side of the bed to Sweety's side of the bed. Sometimes I'll sweat up his side and have to move back to mine after it's dried. I looked up some of the symptoms:
hot flushes and night sweats - oh yeah, check and check
aches and pains - yup, but they could be contributed to my lack of exercise
crawling or itching sensations under the skin - oh my fucking goodness, this one has been happening and it's been driving me CRAZY!
headaches - not happening
vaginal dryness - yes again, but i think maybe i'm just dehydrated
reduced sex drive (libido) - eh, it comes and goes
urinary frequency - this is not a problem
tiredness - all the damn time but i am a lazy ass
irritability - not any more than usual
depression - can't blame this one on anything. it's just part of my personality
sleeping difficulty - yes, but i contribute it to my odd schedule
lack of self esteem - i think this one isn't an issue
forgetfulness - damn, i think tonight's losing the car episode illustrates this
The night sweats thing is what's really getting on my nerves. If it continues I may make an appointment with my woman doctor to see if my hormones are out of whack. My sister said she gets the sweats and her doc told her she didn't have enough progesterone. Maybe that's my problem.
The thought of not being able to have kids sooner than I'd anticipated made me reevaluate my stance on spawning. And I told Sweety it's a dumb idea to try and crank out a kid just because we might want one later and it could be too late. But who knows, my biological clock could start going off like the car alarm at any time.
