But really, when I aborb a lot of new information, the brain is running a thousand miles an hour on what I have just learned and not really focused on
what I am saying. Sorta the mouth running independent of the mind. I like to distinguish between physical tired and mental tired. And it seems more
mental tired than physical tired.
Also, if most of it is on line, how about a vision exam? And/or a glare screen? Oh, and the mattress, if you can't afford a new one, an egg-crate
overlay can help to aliviate the worst of it. And is relatively inexpensive.
I believe you are right about information overload. I haven't been reading the heavy material online for awhile, and the have seemed to gone away. I
have also started to take vitamins. I have been more in the BTS the past few days.
As far as my vision goes, I just got new glasses. I do have a bad stigmatisim in my right eye, and nothing can really be done about it. I can't play
the viedo games where the entire screen moves around showing different angles. I can watch smaller animations such as moving icons, or watching my
Sims in Sim 1 move around. The stigmatisim is so bad, that I can not wear contacts.
GradyPhilpott - You've come to the wrong place. Seek medical attention.
It's not quite that easy. You're talking to someone who had a pair of glasses for 7 years, and only recieved a new pair because a realitive bought
them for me as a Christmas gift. If I had the money, I would be high tailing it to the dentist, since some of my teeth have started to hurt. It
doesn't look like I'll be going any time soon though.
As far as the doctor's, I still have one emergancy visit that I still have to pay for from last year, because of some chest pains that didn't turn
out to be much at all. Unless you want to fork the medical bill, I won't be able to see a doctor any time soon.
It would still be a long time even if I didn't have to pay for my cheap internet connection. My computer isn't worth selling with only 8 gig of hard
drive space that was bought about 6 years ago.
The doc would probablly tell me just to take some asprin and go home. That is what they told me to do when I had the pain in my chest. :bnghd: It was
a non-threatening woman's medical condition. The pain wasen't in the chest, even though it felt like it was. A huge medical bill just to be told go
home and take some advil. Oh, and you can take up to 800mg = 4 of them.
