Sorry that it's a bit long. I'm wordy. I've had a rough year so far. I was going to go see a psychologist over the summer, but I talked myself out of it (with help from my mom, who is loathe to think that there is anything wrong with me). I usually do okay, but every week or so I have a half a day, sometimes a full day, where I just crash. Today was one of those days. What makes this time interesting was what preceded it. Last week on Wednesday I passed out shortly after getting up in the morning. The doctor concluded that it was probably hypoglycemia from not eating enough. Fair enough -- I've only had two meals a day with almost no snacking in between for almost three months now. Thing is, I've had similar problems for years, even when I'm sure I was eating enough. I've never passed out before, but sometimes I'll suddenly get dizzy and my vision will go partially black. It only lasts for a second or two before going away. Since last Wednesday, however, it's been happening a lot more frequently -- once every other day at least. And yes, I have been eating more. Meanwhile, the day after that (last Thursday) I got back into one of my favorite MMORPG's. I started a new character on a new server and started playing. A lot. I've probably played this game for 8 to 10 hours every day since then except Sunday, when I was prevented from doing so by going to see a movie (still probably clocked upwards of 5 hours). Also, it's free-to-play, but, like most such games, it has some things that you have to spend real world money on. I did buy something for $5, and I found myself wanting to buy all sorts of things from the shop -- new clothes, new hairstyles, pets -- all for characters I don't think I'll play past this summer. This is not normal for me. This has mostly gone away now. I'll have to log back in to it periodically because I have some commitments (selling stuff I told other people I'd give them, keeping the guild in order), but I feel like I'm done with it. Actually, I feel like I'm done with pretty much everything. I only care about anything insofar that I know I have to care about it in order to function. I also just generally feel depressed and lonely. I'm curious what your thoughts are about any of this. Is it worth seeing a psychologist about my fluctuating mood? Does anyone have any idea about what could be causing the dizziness/partial blackouts?
