I woke today around 2 p.m. with a slight sense of disorientation. Since then I've been dizzy on and off. I assume this has something to do with sudden changes in my diet, sleep patterns, and neuroenhancer use. Also I have slight, persistent pain in my left chest which would be mild enough to ignore if it didn't vaguely remind me of the pneumothorax I experienced at age 17. I went swimming both yesterday and today; I now swim twice as many laps per day as I used to when I had to hurry because I was skipping out of work. It's a very pleasant feeling, and not difficult. After 30 laps or so, another ten feels the same as five and five feels like two.
Today it rained again.
