Somebody pressed the "blend" button.

That's how my brain feels right now. I know I have stories to tell; I've worked the last three nights. But damned if I can remember any of them, really. It's just been a crummy week. I got my first tattoo, which is awesome, but I had two exams this week which was less so. I've been feeling sick and exhausted no matter what I do. Oh, and the family dog wandered off in to the woods last week and never came home, which I found out about this week and then had to lie to my mom about.

So basically, I'm exhausted, nauseous, depressed, and really would just like to hide in my house for a few days. Five hours until I get to go to work and smile all fucking night!

When I got my first tattoo, I was really under the weather. I didn't realize it was probably shock from the tattoo. My lymph nodes swelled up and everything.

Maybe some of it is that.
Good luck, and I hope you feel better soon.

I wondered about that; I'm not sure how much might be that and how much is sadness over my dog. :( Trying to rest and relax as much as I can for now!

I think Anon may be on to something - that is a shock to your body and it is probably trying to fight it.

I am sorry it is such a long week for you and I am really sorry about your pup. Was he old? I know it doesn't make it any easier but perhaps he just left to go to sleep on his terms. If he is young then I would start checking the pound and SPCA. I wish you luck and hope you feel better soon.

He wasn't old; he was about eight. We've had dogs wander off to die before, and he wasn't displaying any of the symptoms. He hasn't come home, he isn't at the pound, and none of the neighbors on the mountain have seen him. It's horrible, but most likely he was eaten by something. My dad lives in the mountains, and has seen tracks of bears, coyotes, and lynx around his house. Usually the dog would just go to the bathroom and come back, but for some reason he kept going and ... yeah. I'm still sick over it. :(
