posting because...why not? i'm in a rare good mood. it might be partly because i am feeling a bit better since i stopped taking the thyroid medication,that according to western medicine and its tsh test treatments,would make me feel energetic. uh,no,it made me even more sluggish,and more depressed,which was definitely going in the wrong direction. don't know what i'm exactly going to do,because most practioner's don't want to know of the nuances of things like hashimoto's,which is thryoid autoimmunity,or adrenal fatigue. there are some docs in boston who deal with adrenal issues,but it's really not likely i'll go there for many reasons,including money and energy. i just can't afford that kind of specialty or a naturopath out of pocket. so what am i gonna do? i don't know. i am going to try a nettle compound,which is supposed to support the adrenals. the only med i am currently taking is prozac...and i'm pretty sure that's blowing out my adrenals too...but i am going to have to wait until spring to start the process of trying to wean off of that. i checked to see if there were any contraindications with the prozac and nettle,and it looks like a go. i will continue to educate myself.
yeah,so this is me in a good mood! good lord,it's a good thing i don't post in my 'normal' moods very often.

it's a beautiful fallish day,with a good medium breeze freshening up the air in here a bit. i got up early,and i'm starting to get tired,but i did clean the kitty's 'bathroom' and called the pharmacy to cancel my prescription refill. i want to become the mastermind of my own life. i like to think of it as a puzzle. how to get the most important things done with very little energy. maybe with a combination of what smarts i have and what wisdom i may have gained,i can choreograph something for myself.

i have been playing the sims 3 a lot and i think it actually helps me use my organizational mind a bit...which is very helpful. hey,that's as good an excuse for playing the sims as any. i'm a benevolent simsgod. in sims 3,some of the sims are evil,so i have been trying to make them feel fulfilled enough to earn points to not be evil anymore. haha. i'm amazed at how some of the sims do when i put them on free will autopilot. i have been doing that with a house with three adults sims. i play a character based on myself,and pretty much let the other two be themselves. i also got a part time job at the bookstore,a job i used to enjoy in real life.
actually,i used to work full time to survive until i burned out badly.

the sims can also do a 'reset' of their life goals,and i'm thinking i can do that for myself too. okay,see what i've got to work with now,because it's much different than what resources i used to have,and how can i make meaning with what i've got now?

so,i have sometimes used the sims as a sort of blueprint. oh,and i love architecture and interior design too,so i love all the houses and i like to visit the neighbors to check out their cribs. most of the time,it's too much work for my self created sims to make enough money to live in the best houses,but that's where strategy comes in...for cohousing,etc.

anyway,i think i will flip on the red sox game on the radio and see if they can sweep a four game series from the yankees. the shaggy bearded red sox have been tearing it up lately. a not-expected but hugely enjoyable bouncing back from last year,which felt like the end of the world. sort of.

oh,how i love dennis eckersley,even if his hair is stuck in the seventies. what a retro-rebel.

i've been kind of lukewarm about the red sox so far this year. however,i was heartened to see jonathan papelbon blow three wicked fastballs past michael young,one of the league's top hitters for the last several years and a clutch guy,on sunday night. now that was a beautiful thing to behold.

i'm interested in following how matsuzaka does this year. he's good,and he's so likable. the only thing i'm not crazy about is he's a strikeout pitcher,and i only enjoy strikeout pitchers when they're closers. otherwise,i think it's kind of boring. i'm fond of curve balls esthetically and i love ground ball pitchers because i love to see the infield do their thing. boy,did i enjoy that last year. not so much yet this year. i miss the santana infield,and i have a special place in my heart for mark loretta. he did some good clutch hitting last year too. my dad even misses loretta,even as in his early (or is it middle?) stage alzheimer's he can't remember his name. we were talking baseball yesterday on the phone, and he was trying to explain who he meant,and i asked 'you mean last year's american league all-star second baseman?'. yeah,that's who he was talking about.

and it's hard to believe it took me so long to appreciate alex gonzalez last year.i think the explanation is that he's so good he makes it look easy,and it took me a while to catch on.

i'm rather peeved that i can't watch my favorites on other teams,since now the extra innings package is exclusively on direct-tv. i miss watching other teams already,especially feeling so-so about the sox so far. and the condo building where i live has a DISH dish mounted on the roof,as the condo association didn't want individual unsightly dishes on our balconies. so i couldn't even get directtv if i wanted to.it is annoying and disappointing, but it's not the end of the world.
