i hope it was freezerburned

Dear Person Who Stole My Lunch From the Freezer,

I won't go into a lecture on how temporarily, I'm restricted from certain foods, and most days I don't even eat lunch, but the days I do, it's usually for a purpose, like avoiding life-ending nausea when I take hydrocodone to control gall bladder pain so I can sit up and talk and not scream a lot. I won't even explain how I have to time my food intake between my thyroid medication, work, and what I'm drinking so there's no interaction problems with the hydrocodone and potentially the benthyl that cause life-ending dry mouth and I avoid anyway. Because this is not a secret. And people who steal other people's lunches at work tend to be dicks anyway.

So you know, fuck you.

--Seperis, really goddamn nauseated now

Between this and something I read this morning and the clinic being closed tomorrow so unless I can get to the clinic before six tonight I have to wait until next week to get a refill on my script I am not amused.

I'll do a rec post later, maybe. Re-reading Sherlock and AIRPS is totally a prescription for a better mood.

ETA: Eating half a peanut butter twix. Does not help with nausea, but tastiness does distract from it. Also being that time of the month that involves blood and rage and whatnot, sugar is always welcome.

sherlock recs, in a pile here

Okay, so, Sherlock recs. My mother was at a lunch thing and brought me quiche and salad. I feel in charity with the universe.

London Calling by chaletian, gen - John's relationship with his mobile phone. And everyone who calls it. I giggled.

Twenty Three Minutes by cat_77, gen - John's rescue after kidnapping, Sherlock POV. It's not sweet, per se, but it's warm and a bit homicidal and achingly lovely. The author does a wonderful job of conveying desperation and carefully controlled fear and anger with a lot of subtlety.

Oh, But You're An Explosion by mardia, Sherlock/John - there's pretty much nothing about this story that isn't amazing and awesome. Great characterization, fun, and did I mention hot? I really should have said that first.

Like Bad Wallpaper by flawedamythyst, Sherlock/John - John and Sherlock, at a wedding. Harry's, that is. It's funny and sweet and kind of makes me melt, and yeah, they're both really bad at reading each other.

Homemaking by [personal profile] rageprufrock, gen - set after the pilot ep, I really never stop giggling while reading this. John is not Sherlock's wife, except yeah, he sort of is, and there is much shopping with Clara, bonding with Mycroft, living with Sherlock, and contemplating the insanity of his life. And this one is just fun. Like, read now.

Lab Book by sam_storyteller, Sherlock/John - I actually do believe Sherlock would have a lab book of John's sexuality, to be honest.

The Four Paw Problem by AJHall, gen - I don't want to start a rec trying to explain how Dr. Doolittle is awesome and I loved him as a kid, as that's a tangent to the entire issue, but John as remarkably trigger-happy protector of cats under the threat of death is like, ridiculously awesome.

Breakfast at 221B by AJHall, Sherlock/John - though I don't necessarily agree with this version of Mycroft, Sherlock and John are both amazing. The structure and meaning of the conversation between them slowly drifting from objective to subjective to intensely personal to why they're having it at all is subtly and brilliantly done.

The Fundamental Theory of Calculus by cheeky_vim, Sherlock/John - Sherlock's strange obsession with inexplicable lists is driving John crazy. That's a simplified version of a story premise that is anything but simple and always hilarious.
