Slept Through My Alarm

Song: N/A

Mood: 7

Nightmares: 2

I was supposed to get together with WG this morning to go record shopping but I slept through my alarm this morning. I hope he’s not too upset about it – I was really looking forward to going.

I kept pretty busy today. I guess the main thing was that I went for a walk. Not a huge one, just out to the local grocery store while keeping track of how I was feeling. The farther I got from home, the more anxious I became about leaving the door unlocked or the stove on or garage door open. I was able to do the walk, though, and after peaking, the anxiety started to drop.

I also replaced a piece of the couch where the fabric had torn. That only took a couple of minutes because the bolt holes lined up very nicely.

The workshop is still a disaster so I spent some time in it, trying to tidy up the clutter. It doesn’t look like I made a difference at all but I tried. What I really need to do is clear the bench by throwing everything on it into a box and then put the stuff in the box away piece by piece without putting it back on the bench.

I spent some time writing today, too. It felt good – the words came to me quite easily for a change. When that happens, I find writing to be nice and relaxing.

I did some of the homework that Dr P had assigned me a while ago. Now that I’m not in rough shape we’re going to go back to working on the ACT material.

This evening I’m doing a load of laundry. J has been doing the vast majority of it since I’ve been feeling down, and I really appreciate her stepping in and doing it – if you read this, thank you very much!

My medications are all messed up. I have four days’ worth of some, five weeks’ worth of others, and the rest are all somewhere in between. I counted out all of my pills, did the math, and then gave the pharmacy a call to see if we could balance everything out. With luck, everything will be worked out by mid-week.

I’m afraid to say anything but I’m feeling a lot better than I was a week ago. I’m still not where I want to be, but things are so much better than they were. Thanks to everyone who was patient with me and who helped me get through the slump!

Stay safe.
