Inside looking out.

I've been looking at some personality tests. No, not the kind I used to cheat at in Cosmopolitan when I was in my 20s, but this kind of thing: Jung Typology Test

Your Type is
Introverted Intuitive Thinking Judging
Strength of the preferences %
44 25 1 67

This means I am:
  • moderately expressed introvert
  • moderately expressed intuitive personality
  • slightly expressed thinking personality
  • distinctively expressed judging personality
No real surprises there. Explains why I don't like parties and don't socialise much. Apparently I'm in the same sort of bracket as Hilary Clinton and Stephen Hawking. Who knew?

Introversion aside, I haven't been feeling too good lately. Just don't seem to have been able to shake the lurgy from before Christmas. I'm tired all the time and feel really run down. I'm anaemic and my blood pressure is elevated. I've been feeling quite feel stressed much of the time and feel easilly overwhelmed. My hormones are misbehaving too, so I'm having some gynae treatment and hopefully that will help.
It got so bad that I took three days off work last week, mostly because I was frightened by the scale of my blood pressure issues. I'm trying to tackle it all by resting when I need to, by eating well and getting some exercise. Hopefully, things will start to turn a corner soon.

Currently on the needles:

Unpattern top-down sweater for me. Making this in Marble, but not really enjoying it. Having got past the arm holes, I'm going to finish it.

Clapotis in Noro Kureyon Sock for me. I finally succumbed to the clapotis virus.

Currently on my bedside table:
Lords and Ladies, by Terry Pratchett.

I love the Lancre witches.

Sorry to hear you are not too well, just bear in mind Spring is around the corner and Snowdrops are starting to flower.
