Finals Week Brain Swirls

So I am anemic.
And if i don't get enough iron, my brain and body goes a little loopy.
Other contributing factors to anemic freak outs: not enough sleep, exercise, blood loss, stress.

This week, i have been feeling super anemic, tired, slow, over active brain/hard to focus, emotional, needing a lot of alone time. It's a strange thing when you are hyper aware of your body and can understand the source of different feelings, physical and emotional feelings.
I am feeling good in most areas of life right now, but the anemia's effect on my brain spins me for loops. its a lack of oxygen in your blood... aka, my brain is low on fuel. so it's workng over time and making my ADD go crazy.

It is finals week, and i am trying real hard to focus. My legs were shaking like crazy in one of my classes on Monday because my mind is just so buzzy.

To try to focus, i wrote out all the words and phrases i associate with my mind, thought process, how i communicate. Here is the list:
(contributors: artistic, heavy right brained, mystic mindset, ADD, anemia, introverted)

abstract
universal
broad
overarching
buzzing
scattered
lacking particulars
filled with questions
blurry
complicated
complex
open ended
uncertain answers
conflicting ideas
bunny trails
opinionated but relative
answers that lead to more questions
swinging
unbalanced
relativity
desiring facts, but finding more questions
nervous
jittery
dreamy
spacey

needless to say, i am feeling a little loopy this week.
