Song: Music From Lazy Jones (Commodore 64 game) by David Whittaker
I slept a little better last night. No nightmares or even any bad dreams that I can remember, and I only woke up a couple of times. I couldn’t get back to sleep after J left for work, but that’s pretty normal now I think.
For whatever reason, I’m really twitchy again today. Every little sound or thing moving out of the corner of my eye makes me jump. I’m kind of glad I’m not driving right now – the traffic around me would probably be difficult to handle.
I went downstairs to do my exercises this morning and they went pretty well. I was able to relax and focus relatively easily, and only got interrupted twice – once when the furnace kicked in, and once when the mail was delivered.
I did the oven exposure today. Unfortunately, it was a little more difficult today but I got through it without too much gnashing of teeth.
I started to work on the quadcopter today but got distracted by a link in one of the RC YouTube videos I was watching and fell down the rabbit hole again for probably too long. On the upside, I watched a dog get zapped while he was peeing on an electric fence, and I learned a couple of cool things about myoglobin. I also saw the beginning of a video on centipedes and millipedes but clicked away from that one pretty quickly.
J got home to pick me up to go to the lab at 3PM. There was only one person in front of me in line, and it felt like half an hour but I think J and I sat there for less than five minutes before my name was called. Even the blood draw was quick – just a single vial today. While we were driving home, I said that I thought it would be worth it to go to appointments at that time even if it meant fasting for 15+ hours. It’s not like I’m going to starve to death (it’d probably take a couple of months) and I’d rather be hungry for half a day instead of standing in a room full of sick people for an hour and a half first thing in the morning.
On the way home, J ducked into the grocery store for some food and to pick up some prescriptions (all mine, I think). I stayed in the car and turned on some music and did some grounding to calm down a bit. Going out is still so very unpleasant, even if it’s somewhere close to home that I’m really familiar with. I keep trying to think of some trick to try to fool myself but I haven’t had luck with that yet.
Tomorrow I have nothing planned (no Dr W appointment this week). The kitchen needs a little work and there’s some laundry to do, so I may start there. Other than that, I think I’ll be working on the quadcopter – as long as I don’t get distracted again.
