Hello all! Kaz, Dottie, Len and Tony, you still out there?
Bit of a clique forming in here, hope we're not scaring anyone off. Lurkers, if you're reading and wondering, wonder no more, say hi, welcome to the club. Welcome to a special part of the world, life with a little added extra. Where's you're rollercoaster at today, let us know. How's the hamster in your head?
Short week time! taking Friday off, 3 days to cram in 5 days of work *lol*. Thanks to invasion day, will be celebrating with acknowledgement and respect.
Mornings suck, I used to be able to get out of bed and spring into the day, at least with some energy even if my head was like a sore bear. Now it's just a morning fog with little desire to leave the bed. Might help going to be (and taking my medication) earlier than 12:30am *whince*. Need better bed time, but there's so much to do!! Need to as least take medication earlier maybe, of which I need to remember to get some more.
Had a great weekend with the missus! lots of lovely adult time, out and about, nice dinner Sat night, rebuilding 'Us'.
Still need to work out how/when I stop buying crap for the sake of buying crap, because I 'may' use it one day, or 'it won't be this cheap again', or 'how much better would that be'. At least I haven't bought any new runners for a month, but haven't really been running either *sigh*. Sat morning's run has given me a slight hamstring strain on the right leg, dammit. Extra weight and lack of training. Ain't no jack rabbit like I was a few months ago.
An unquiet mind is very interesting reading. Haven't had psychosis, but boy it looks scary. So much else in the book resonates so far, the energy levels, the thinking you're in full control, that everything is awesome, you mind whizzing away, unable to stop. One passage resonated about being the life of the party and everything is great, compared to someone looking in and seeing you as a mostly uncontrollable mess. A friend had relayed as much to me one day. I thought I was at the top of my game, top of the world, had it all worked out, and was just celebrating. Seemed I was quite a mess, can't remember half of what I said, good times.
Need to book back into my psychologist too, to say hi, let her know where I am at, seek some guidance I guess. Psychiatrist appointment next week, Rheumatologist the week after. Geez I'm high maintenance.
Time to keep working, there are bills to be paid! #thankfulforhavingajob
Looks like I've run out of chara
