I still enjoy singing along to Alanis Morissette's song Ironic whenever I hear it on the radio (every once in a blue moon). Isn't it ironic?
I was thinking about a few things on my drive home from work today, and a couple of ironies popped into my mind.
First, why is it that so many people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have insomnia and other sleep problems? It seems like a cruel joke. I, myself, have had bouts of insomnia on and off for the past several years. While my insomnia seemed to have gotten better for a while, the past few days have been especially challenging. I've alternated between having trouble falling asleep and having trouble staying asleep.
I also think it's ironic that I've been losing my hair because I've actually been trying to grow it out to donate it to an organization called Locks of Love that provides wigs to kids who have lost their hair. I haven't gotten a real hair cut since June of 2008. On a side note, I think the hair loss is finally slowing down (knocking on wood) because not as much hair has come out today.
