Keeping Pretty Busy

Song: “This is the Life” by ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic

Mood: 7

Nightmares: 3

I didn’t sleep all that well last night. It took me a long time to fall asleep, I woke up quite a few times, and I couldn’t get back to sleep after J left for work.

It wasn’t as easy today to do my exercises – I’ve been a tiny bit anxious for the last few days and today it kicked up a notch to the point where it’s bothering me. I guess that’s one of the reasons I do the exercises in the first place…

After finishing up downstairs I wandered back over to the dining room table and started playing with the quadcopter again. After a bit of poking around I was able to update the software on it and my computer could now talk to the quadcopter’s brain and read all the sensors. I also found out that the transmitter is working and can talk to the quadcopter, too. I’m not sure what my next step will be but I think I’ll work on getting the motors spinning next. I’ve been really enjoying working on this, it’s something different than what I am used to and it’s interesting and fun.

I spent my prescribed time outside again today. It was about as fun as it was yesterday but I did it anyway. I want things to get better quickly so I can drive around the neighbourhood and get to some of my appointments by myself again. J is a huge help but I feel bad that she is scheduling work around me because I can’t drive myself.

I slipped a bit today with the ERP and caught myself checking things again, including the garage door and the stove. It’s so difficult to stop myself when I start – once my arm is reaching for the curtain to move it aside and look at the garage door I can’t make myself drop it and turn away. For whatever reason I need to go through with the action, which is frustrating. I need to talk to Dr P about that.

Tomorrow I have an appointment with Dr W. I haven’t seen him for two weeks so it will be interesting to see if he suggests any medication changes. I would like to decrease something again but with what’s been going on I don’t know if that’s a good idea. I am not looking forward to going out.

Tonight J and I are watching the last Columbo from the original series. We still have the ones from the late ‘80s to 2003 but I don’t think they’re quite as good as the older ones. Either way, we’re still going to have to figure out what we’re going to watch next.

Stay safe.
