Song: “Johnny B Rotten” by The Monks
Woke up a few times with my mind racing again last night but was able to get back to sleep after a bit each time so I don’t think it was too bad.
I got through my exercises today and caught myself worrying or guilting myself only about half a dozen times. That’s a definite improvement over the last little while.
I keep losing track of the day of the week. Part of me keeps thinking it’s Monday, while another part is convinced that it’s Thursday. I keep poking my phone to check the day and date on the lock screen.
It was even nicer outside today when I went for my walk and I did my best to slow down and enjoy it. The sun felt very warm on my skin and the air was fresh and clean. There’s not very much snow left and with the temperatures supposed to go even higher over the next few days, there might be enough clear, dry space in the nearby park to give the quadcopter a try.
I did the exposure exercise with the bathroom fan three times again today. It was a little more difficult today but I was able to get through all of the attempts.
Aside from music, it was pretty quiet here today. Only a couple of texts and a call from the clinic that I managed to answer – they’re fine with me taking a PRN or two but wanted to make sure that I wasn’t driving and whether I needed a prescription. I’m glad that they’re okay with it. If my doctor is going to be cutting pieces off of me and then sewing up the holes left over, it would probably be best if I could sit still and not wave my arms all over the place.
I worked on our DVD collection again. It’s a bigger job than I thought but it’s coming along. That reminds me that I have some records that aren’t in my spreadsheet yet – I should probably do that sooner rather than later. I also cleaned up the kitchen and got a clear container cleaned up and ready for growing algae. Before I put any algae in it, I’m letting it sit overnight to get rid of at least some of the chlorine. I wonder how quickly it will grow.
J and I watched another Boston Legal this evening. It was pretty good – a Christmas episode that wasn’t too cheesy. I’m aware that it’s a fictional show but after a bit of thinking, I’m pretty sure I’d make a terrible lawyer.
Tomorrow I will spend some more time on the DVDs. I may even break out the microscope for the first time in quite a while.
There’s a lot more that I wanted to say in this entry, specifically about what’s going on with my OCD, but it’s getting late and I can’t transcribe the material that’s running around in my head. I will try again tomorrow.
