One nice thing about afternoon naps

They make staying up till 9:30pm significantly less challenging.  I’m still really tired, but I’m not falling asleep while sitting up, which is a victory.  Two weeks till I have to be up to working a full-time schedule; hopefully I won’t need naps by then, because they’re sort of not allowed at work.

On a totally unrelated note

I was feeling woozy and out-of-sorts, and had heart-attack-ish discomfort (in that obnoxious “it could be a heart attack, or indigestion, or panic, or…” kind of way.)  So I went upstairs, laid down for a minute, and used my pulse oximeter.

125 beats per minute, 95% oxygen saturation.  For me, lying down quietly, not having a bad asthma day, this would be known as “oh, heck no” territory.  I suspect, though I’m not sure, that this is a combination of (extreme) anxiety and a drop in blood pressure.  I haven’t eaten much at all today, and I’m under loads of stress.

Anyway, so now I’ve taken a full milligram of Ativan, and am going to drink a ton of fluids.  I’m also going to go lie down until I feel less like crap.  I figure if I still feel really awfully sick in an hour, after drinking half a gallon of water and after the Ativan, then I’ll consider urgent care.  I’ll also consider it if I actually start gasping, or puke, or whatever.

(There’s a little bit of heart “issues” running through my family, but on a day like today, leaning toward the anxiety explanation makes way more sense.  I also have two clear EKGs in the last year, and none of my current meds are supposed to mess with your heart.  I haven’t been on anything really bad for that particular major organ in over a year, actually… woot.)

Lots of stuff is legal but totally at odds with the restored gospel

A partial listing:

Which is to say, nearly everything that ever happens on MTV.

Most of what we are told - in no uncertain terms - not to do in God’s commandments (the stuff handily summarized in For the Strength of Youth, emphasized in every General Conference session, etc.) - is tolerated, accepted, or even celebrated by the world.

Which just goes to show that Lehi was really on to something with that whole “great and spacious building” bit, and that Noah and Abinadi and all the other prophets were far from alone in how they were received by those they preached to.  It happens all the time, everywhere.  Including today, here - even on Tumblr.

And also: that the truth of the gospel has little to nothing to do with the way that the “natural men” of the world organize their lives.  That’s why we need the gospel in the first place.

Incidentally, check out this article from Richard L. Evans: Should the Commandments Be Rewritten?
