After pondering it some more, I’ve finally pegged a few reasons for my funkalicious mood lately.
1. Hormones. Being a woman sucks.I have been looking into symptoms of low DHEA and have been amazed at how much this has to do with all of my hormone issues.
2. Fatigue. For the past week or two, I’ve been tired all the time. 8 hours of sleep is not enough; I wake up on my own in the morning (before the alarm goes off), but all I want to do is go back to sleep.
3. Caffiene. I had cut it out of my diet, and recently I’ve let it sneak back in. Now I haven’t had it in days, so I think it drags me down.
4. Housework. I’m hyper-sensitive to anything in my house being messy. Thanks to being so tired though, I don’t want to deal with it. So instead, it just pisses me off. All the time. I can’t stand it. Ironically, the ADD meds have helped kick my manic modes, so what would normally throw me into overdrive to do a ton of work isn’t happening. The good thing? No manic cycles. The bad thing? I’m frustrated by seeing things that are messy, and when I get frustrated I retreat. Vicious cycle.
So I’m off to clean. I really want to take a nap, but I’ll resist the urge for now. Maybe after I clean the kitchen, I’ll let myself take a nap as a reward…
