    I finally ordered an e-reader about a week ago, and it will supposedly arrive today, any minute now. Ahhh, the anticipation!

    But then there will be the delay whilst you wait for the battery to charge before you can use it.*


    * Brings back memories of the odd christmas present that needed batteries - but didn't come with any. Oh the wait for the shops to open a few days later

    The charging wait is happening right now since I was busy all day! It would have been easier if it needed batteries, I always keep some here of all sizes for a wall clock, TV/ air conditioner remotes, etc. But I also lived through the battery wait you mention when I was little. It was more frustrating than this!

    Exactly how I feel. I should have done uni work, but instead I'm only just starting; if I'd done it earlier I could have legitimately had the evening off and spend it with my boyfriend but, no, I'm an idiot who procrastinates when he isn't about. =/

    Fft. Genuinely hate my life right now.

    Just out if curiosity, if you went to the doctor about suspected anxiety, would they do blood tests and take hair samples?

    As a first step it's unlikely. As a result of at least more than 1 appt or other concerns and relevant medical history then it's possible to take other steps rule out issues that may be an underlying cause of anxiety. I doubt the NHS would use hair sampling though, it seems a very specific thing.

    Blood tests almost certainly but I don't see why they would take hair samples. When I was suffering anxiety I had blood tests to rule out any physical cause but nothing else.
    2g lobes, 18g forward helix (L), 14g Conch (L), 16g Double helix (L) 14g Daith (R), and 18g right nostril. 16g Septum.
    2 hours of ink.
    Retired: Gunned 20g lobes many years ago, 16g Tragus, 18g third (L), 18g Forward helix (bottom of double)(L) 14g Philtrum x 2, 18g second (L).

    Thanks! I thought it seemed strange... (It's not about me by the way!)

    I didn't even know hair sampling at the docs was a thing! I just thought it was for Dna testing at a crime scene or like on TV where they steal hairs from hairbrushes to find out if someone is someone etc ahah. Learn something new everyday!




    Have i gone mad? Im afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But i'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.
