airhead

Yesterday, I used a knife to butter and cut up the kids' pancakes... and then I put it back in the silverware drawer instead of the dishwasher.

I don't feel spacey when I'm around people or actively working on something. I only seem to screw up auto-pilot things, like turning off the stove. I know, people do that sort of thing all the time, but I can't ever recall having done it myself. The burner was set to the lowest possible setting, so that it was difficult to see the flame. I only realized it was on later when I noticed the air was warmer over that burner. No harm done. (So far.)

Sinus meds are doing something because the big node under my jawline has subsided. But my face still feels clogged up. Is this a chicken-and-egg problem? Will the sinus thing ever resolve if my thyroid meds are whacked? How can I tell what's a sinus symptom and what's a thyroid symptom? This is annoying.

I have a sense of waiting for something to happen, and I was trying to figure out what that was. I think I know: I'm waiting for the sinus infection to resolve, and for my thyroid meds to be calibrated. I'm waiting to feel like me again.

Oh, the joys of being us. Combining hypo fog with RA fog is never fun. I know the other day I put the cups I had just taken out of the dishwasher and put them in the fridge. I put on my deodorant before I took my shower. All sorts of little things like that. It sucks. I have to have Hans go around behind me making sure that I don't leave things on. It's frustrating, but this too shall pass.
