Feels Like A Monday

Song: N/A

Mood: 5.5

Nightmares: 0

I only remember waking up a few times last night, so I think I got a better sleep than usual (which is great). No nightmares, and no weird dreams of psychos wearing jerseys of long-defunct sports teams.

It was lovely outside this morning when I went for my walk. The air was fresh and pleasant, and there wasn’t any trace of the heat or mugginess that we had just two days ago. Unfortunately, about halfway through my circuit around the neighbourhood I began to feel unwell so I cut my walk short and made a beeline for the house. Of course I feel ill on the day when it’s not super windy or hot and gross out. Oh well.

Since I wasn’t feeling well, my exercises this morning suffered pretty bad. I ended up giving up about 45 minutes in. I’m not particularly worried – they’ve been going quite well since I started wearing the ear defenders, and I’m sure today was just an off day because of how I was feeling.

I spent a lot of time writing today, splitting my time between that little blurb that I’m writing for my nephews, and an article that I plan to submit. Despite spending a lot of time on it, I didn’t make that much progress. I wasn’t feeling great to start with, but I kept having trouble transliterating the thoughts and feelings going on in my head to words on a screen. I’d stare at a sentence I’d just written, then a single word, and then I’d start wondering if what I’d typed was actually a word or just something I’d invented. It was kind of weird and a little frustrating.

Some potentially good news, though – whatever was beeping seems to have stopped. I don’t think I’ve heard it in at least the last two days. I’m glad that it’s not making sounds anymore, but at the same time I’m concerned that I never figured out what it was and maybe it was something important, or maybe I’ll find out what it was in eight months when I open something up and find leaked battery and corrosion everywhere. Overall, though, I think the beeping stopping is a good thing.

For some reason, the pharmacy is confused about at least two of my prescriptions this month. This is not unheard of – while the pharmacy J and I use is convenient and nearby, they occasionally have their D-team working. Usually it takes a quick call to the pharmacy staff (instead of talking to their computer) and things get figured out, but sometimes they get stumped. I think it’s because maybe a different shift comes on and people on the previous shift didn’t leave any notes or anything like that. Dr W has mentioned a few times now that that particular pharmacy handles things differently than every other pharmacy he’s dealt with. Anyway, so I got my first “holdover refill” today, and they’re working on sorting out the dosage change to my venlafaxine. To be fair, I’ve been getting a lot of stuff from them for the last 27 months and there haven’t been many misadventures. There’s one person who works there, though, that whether it’s on the phone or in person, they act very condescending. Whenever I call the pharmacy, I cross my fingers that I’ll get one of the other staff… but I usually don’t. Oh well.

J picked up the groceries that I ordered yesterday and was in and out of the store in a flash. That’s good – I like it when things go smoothly. Like I’ve mentioned before, being able to order the groceries online and save J the time of going through the store and comparing prices and ingredients, makes me feel like I’m doing something useful.

J borrowed The Young Pope from the library and we decided to give it a try this evening. Unfortunately, neither of us were in the mood for it and we turned it off after about five minutes. We’ll give it another try before it has to go back.

So far, I have no idea what I’m doing tomorrow. Probably more writing. I’m overthinking the science thing for my nephews so I should just get the pictures and be done with it. Aside from that, I’m sure there’s a bunch of stuff I need to do but I can’t remember right now. I hope it’s as nice out in the morning as it was today.

Stay safe.
