Unleashing the crazy.

Sorry for the long gap between posts, but my mind was recently taken over by schizophrenic monkeys with laser prods that they used to keep me in a constant state of manic anxiety. The week leading up to finals and finals week itself was a hellish nightmare for me. I don't understand why it is only during finals and not any other time of the semester that I become a useless mass of nerves, nausea, insomnia and anorexia. I am actually going to be seeking mental health counseling when I get back to the island and maybe some prescription meds to combat my excessive anxiety.

But the good news is that I passed everything. Actually I only got one C+ and the rest were A's and B's. That hasn't stopped my monkey-laser-prodded brain from giving me nightmares all last week about additional exams that I had yet to take in Pharmacology and Virology. I would wake up and practically shout at myself, "You passed! Calm down already!"

Anyway, yes. Seeking professional help and anti-crazy medication as soon as possible.  And my break has been going well. I'm not over-scheduling myself like last break and am taking time to relax. I love the days where it's just me and my husband curled up on the sofa, watching Netflix and eating take out food.

I've got an idea for a pretty long post on common canine behavior myths that I'll probably get up sometime over break. I haven't done a good, detailed skeptical post in awhile and feel the need to be productive. So be on the look out for that.
