Not feeling well again

Very short update about my health, just because it's too long to twitter. I don't know what is going on with me, I've been having some muscular stiffness and weakness since Tuesday. I noticed when I was walking across my unreasonably large campus. For some reason, my legs just stopped working correctly and I had trouble moving at anything above old-geezer speed. Usually I'm pretty loose because of my former athletic lifestyle, but since that day my muscles have felt like I hadn't moved or used them in years. My boyfriend suggested it was the recent trips to the gym, but I hadn't been to the gym in a few days. I'm a little concerned.

On top of that, I've found myself sleeping more than I usually do. That's actually really an accomplishment. I usually nap an hour or two a day, but now I've found myself napping almost 6 hours a day with the normal 8 hours I get every night. That's 14 hours of sleep. I slept all day today. Granted I was out having fun all day yesterday, but usually sleeping until 5 in the afternoon, only getting up for lunch, comes after a night of heavy drinking and dancing. Last night I had one beer and played board games with friends.

So yeah, my health is in question at the moment. On the dream front I've seen the Slender Man again as I'm descending into the third world. I've stopped even trying to get to the second world. I'm fairly certain that only Micah can pull me in anyway. The Slender Man didn't have any messages, not even about trespassing being forbidden. He just stood, non-staring at me. He was actually closer than before. I could also hear some sort of high pitched whistle sound, like that tone that only young people can hear. I hate that sound. Also, nothing with Lemminkaenen. He/she/it is leaving me alone. I stopped taking the allergy meds and I think that's why.

This short update is way longer than it was supposed to be. TL;DR version: I'm weak and I can't sleep. Saw Slender in descent, haven't seen Lemminkaenen or Micah.


  1. Wow, that is a lot of sleep! Do you think it's your experiences in the third world that are making you so tired?

    Your experiences sound very similar to descriptions of shamanic journeys in trance states, have you done any research into this?

    Best wishes, Cate

  2. Cate,

    Yes, I've done a little looking after the Lemminkaenen thing surfaced. I'm inclined to believe that were I living in an ancient time I'd be considered a shaman of some sort because of my epilepsy and I also have an inkling that that may be part of the reason I experience such vivid visions and trips into the second and third worlds.

    I think my tiredness may have something to do with my trips. I always hope that when I'm napping I'll be able to slip into one of the worlds. I maybe be subconsciously trying to sleep more for that reason.

    Thanks for you concern,
