Suspected culprit: digestive tract. Where, who knows. Why, could be any number of reasons. I didn't get much sleep last night. (My fault, by the way. I began to get ready for bed at midnight. Games delayed me until nearly 3 am. So much for being responsible. *facepalm*)
I ate a meal at 2 am last night. (So much was my discomfort that I couldn't even eat breakfast at all...meaning at best I'll get an inquiry; at worst, a lecture. They're not mutually exclusive of course.) Even if not THAT meal, any number of prior meals may have triggered this.
It is also possible that while my symptoms are physical, the trigger was mental, as I have in fact been feeling depressed. It's also possible that this is my monthly problem; it's about the time of the month I have this sort of issue. (I mean, I'm not biologically female but sometimes it feels that way anyway.)
This could even be just...because it is, with no rhyme nor reason attached; sometimes things like this just happen to us. Or maybe it has some other cause I haven't thought of. Honestly, it's probably some combination of the above, so oh well. I'll just have to live with it.
It does kinda suck, but I'll live. The main concern I have for today (I'm writing this post-workout but pre-work) is gender dysphoria. The other guard today is (unlike normal) female. So too is the front desk attendant. Those days always seem to be worse, because in spite of my best efforts at dodging bullets, they often somehow find a way to ask of me tasks I find uncomfortable (to say the least) so don't be surprised if my next entry is an all-caps panic-induced breakdown.
Later today, I'm hoping to give a Civ game update (I'm about to win, thus why I was delayed last night), as well as letting you know if I feel better. (I actually expect the answer to be yes physically. Mentally, well...hard to say. It really depends on the day.)
