Shrinkology Today
nanowrimo 2010

Today is the sort of day I really hate. I woke from a lot of bizarre dreams (which I will record in baddreams later today) feeling really miserable. Nothing specific seems wrong, but I have a killer headache, a tightness in the chest, intermittent coughing, and a perpetually runny nose. Actually, that sounded pretty specific. In any event, I feel miserable in an unallocated general way on top of all that. I have been smelling funny smells for a week, citrus, sweetish smells mostly, but once I was firmly convinced I could smell a cigar. Is it possible to have olfactory hallucinations? (the answer is yes). Hmmmm …

Shrinkologist Day
Today is shrinkologist day. I am determined to keep this appointment despite the strong urge to cancel today. I don't know why I am so reluctant to see George. I actually enjoy the sessions. They are a sort of social interaction I don't get otherwise. I just always leave in a bad mood.

On again/off again movie plans
Mario and Kim are going to Return of the King tonight and Sis and I were going to go. Sis may not make it because her friend Bob is going to visit. I may or may not go if she does not. I don't really want to spend the money, but would have in order to have something to do with her. *sigh*

Phone Crap
The phones have been busy lately. I don't know if having a dial-up connection interfering with that would be a good or a bad thing. *sigh* I suppose it is simply a matter of trying it to find out. A lot of the phone calls are calls I would just as soon didn't get through, but I have difficulty passing judgment on others.

Lunch Yesterday
Lunch yesterday with Randy was fun. I enjoyed myself, which is not usually the case. No criticism of Randy is implied, I just seem to have a hard time enjoying any human interaction these days. He and I are going to try to fix my computer. I have to quit now to deal with my own lunch — a bowl of chili.

Do you know why this is? I used to smell horse poop all the time, then it was peas, now it is maple syrup. Every where is maple syrup, it drives me nuts!

I managed to discover that it was possible to have such hallucinations, but was not given an explanation of why they happened. They seem to be associated with chemical forms of schizophrenia, but not exclusively so.
