Shortest Day Of The Year

Song: “Desperado” by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes

Mood: 7

Nightmares: 0

I slept quite well last night and woke up feeling refreshed. My mindfulness and worry exercises worked well today and I didn’t have any trouble focusing. I also didn’t notice any difference at all with the reduction in haloperidol. I didn’t have any trouble getting to sleep, I’m not hearing anything, and I didn’t feel any different in the morning. Hopefully this means that sometime soon I’ll be able to stop taking it entirely.

After I was done my exercises, I decided to brave the cold and go out for a bit. It took a while to scrape the ice off the truck but when I was done I went and got gas, then drove around for a while. It was very busy out today, with lots of traffic and slow going through some places.

Since I was feeling pretty good and things were going well, I decided to throw caution to the wind and went and wandered through a couple of stores. They were all very busy but I kept telling myself that I was there for fun, not because I had to be, and I managed to keep reasonably calm.

After the last store, I decided to drive around a little bit more and that went quite well, too.

Once I got home, I wrapped J’s presents and then went downstairs to listen to music.

All in all, it’s been a pretty good day. Since it’s the winter solstice, I’m looking forward to longer days as we begin the crawl towards spring!

Stay safe.
