ive noticed something disturbing, for the past week or so ive had a mental image that is persistent/obsessive. i dont think thats happened before. its an image im not going to describe in specifics but its generic and biological. an example would be an image of road kill on the highway. at random times throughout the day the image pops into my head and i feel bothered whenever it shows up.

i think its a serious sideeffect of the hours ive been working. even though work itself isnt all that stressful the sheer number of hours has taken its toll. i didnt realize it until just now but ive got to make that a major input in my future work plans.
