My weird body

*sigh* There are a lot of weird things about my body. Like, caffeine is not a stimulant for me. Up to a certain point, it relaxes me. Past that point, I get the friggin jitters. It's a symptom of ADD, but I don't think I have that. I think I might have SCT, which stands for Sluggish Cognitive Tempo; many mental conditions only sound like me a little bit, but SCT sounds exactly like me (except that my Asperger's gives me hyper-focus ability at times). I'm going to have to ask my shrink about it. Which means getting an appointment made.

Also, I run hotter than most people. The other day, Amy was so cold she was wrapped in blankets and I thought it was just a wee bit past comfortably warm; 70 F is the beginning of truly uncomfortable for me.

Oh, and you know that whole thing about "take a cold shower" to get rid of horniness? Doesn't work with me. I take room temperature showers or cooler, and the colder the water, the hornier I get. (To a point.)

Also, the hotter it gets, the slower and duller I get, like a Discworld yeti. And likewise, the colder it is, the more alert I am, and the sharper my mind. (To a point.) Kind of weird, I guess, for the avatar of a fire Goddess. Ah well, Chaos Fire isn't like regular fire. It only *looks* like fire; it doesn't put out any heat. Chaos Fire is living energy that eats practically any form of matter or energy it can find, but prefers Creation Onyx. Anyway...

Cold only bothers me when I sleep. I need it to be 65 F at night to be comfy; any colder and I start dreaming about looking for sweaters, etc to keep warm. Only thing is, if it's hotter than 60, I can't easily get to sleep. (In summer, I have to sleep either naked or in undies, and have the fan on high. Even then, it's difficult.
I wish there was a way for the thermostat to start at 60 and go up to 65 once I fall asleep.

Nest makes a network aware Thermostat. Tie it to some detection for your sleep and presto.
Android phone's audio processing listens to your breathing and tags sleep patterns? Mindflex headset Bluetooth links to phone or computer's processing of sleep waves:>

All a mere bunch of hacking code to make it so.

My Weird Body
My body sometimes acts weird. I have cerebral palsy, which is complicated by the many changes in the weather. I can most definitely tell when the weather’s about to change because my muscles will get stiff. After my orthopedic surgeries at the age of 10 is when this began to happen. It began with my left knee cracking if I attempted to bend it a certain way. (Oddly, the right knee doesn’t do this as much as the left.)
Now that I’m having issues with my leg braces, the balance stability isn’t there like it should be. There are times I feel like I am going to fall. At my last podiatrist appointment earlier in the year, I was told that the callas on my right ankle is a result from the brace rubbing and causing irritation. I was told the problem with my feet would become worse unless something was done.
Well, I’m still waiting to find out what that step is in getting the braces and crutches both looked at and replaced. I’ve had to deal with this for so long, now my balance is being hindered—and there are times I feel like I’m going to completely lose my balance and fall on my nose. That’s why I’m glad my incredibly awesome boyfriend, Sean “Mixingk” Keffer’s always with me to make sure I don’t fall and get hurt.

My Hurt Toe=Need A Cuddle
I hate having a sore toe. Not only is it difficult to walk on, but it’s also extremely painful. Annoying callas, please go away. I’ve been dealing with this way too long a day. No matter what I do, the toe ends up hurting so. Ultimately, attempting to walk is made difficult thanks to the position of the injury.
When Train’s around, he makes me smile- even if it’s just for a little while. 😊 I ❤ that goofy puppy, the fur ball who’s getting so chubby. Nothing makes me smile more than when he pops in for a visit—even sticks around for a little while.
I guess I need a hug from my very best friend in the entire universe, my wonderful boyfriend. When he holds me, he gets me to forget about my hurt foot—even if it’s for a little bit. I ❤ how he’s able to be there unconditionally for me—no matter what I am currenty going through. His love gets me through anything.
