Weekend Wrap-Up

Weekend wrap-up

wrapping paper, ribbon, and twine

Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:

  • Emotionally I’ve felt pretty numb for much of this week, but hey, I suppose that’s better than feeling really low.
  • I continue to be pretty spacey cognitively.  I wonder how much of that is related to my decision a few weeks ago to stop getting biweekly methylfolate/B12 injections.  I know they were helping, but it was a lot of money to be spending given that I haven’t been working much.
  • With the colder weather, one day I put on my cute leather jacket and discovered that I couldn’t zip it up, mostly because my boobs are too big.  I never would’ve thought I’d say that, but I guess the psych meds aren’t just adding weight to my tummy.
  • I made a $50 mistake, which annoyed me.  I have to do annual CPR training for work, and a few weeks ago when I was really spacey I had registered for a class.  Instead of putting it on my calendar for November 16, I entered it for December 16.  I didn’t realize the mistake until the 16th had already passed, and there was no way I was going to try asking for a refund when it was my own (my depression’s, to be exact) dumb mistake.  I ended up doing a different class this week, and even though it flew by because we were all nurses recertifying, I had a really hard time staying present.
  • For self-care, I went to yoga and had a massage.  I’ve been using my aromatherapy diffuser a lot.  I’ve also been cooking yummy fall comfort foods.
  • I have a lot of things that I’ve started writing, but have had a hard time focusing on anything enough to be very productive.  It’s not a lack of ideas; it’s more a lack of productivity.  That’s fine, but it’s just kind of annoying because I have a lot of time on my hands right now.


How has your week been?

  1. My weeks been pretty good! I did my usual stuff, volunteered, saw my therapist, psych doc, wen to slimming world, then today went Christmas shopping! Loving that its the weekend!

  2. I’ve bought B12 injections to do myself as in the UK we only get them every 3 months, and having pernicious anaemia I’m wondering whether more regular injections will help. I’m sorry you’ve had to stop doing yours so often, but I’d be wondering whether changes in how you feel then relate to that or not. Hard to know what causes what in the end.
    I find meds add weight to my thighs and tummy but never my boobs, which is a shame as they really could do with a little more padding!!
    Grr I would have been frustrated with the CPR date thing, too. These things happen, it’s just super annoying when it costs financially.
    I’ve had a pretty naff week, then a family blow out yesterday had me go from being utterly irate to totally numb and now I have no idea how I feel. I’m sorry you’ve been feeling quite spacey and numb. I do hope that eases off and you can feel a little more ‘with it’ and present soon. Rest up this weekend, if you can’t be too productive then give yourself a break until you feel like you can.

  3. Oh no!! Don’t feel bad! I’ve made even more expensive mistakes than that, but I know what you mean. [Sighs and rolls eyes.] Yeah, it bites.

    So, I wonder how you get the weight into your chest? 😀 I’m a B-cup, and I swear, all my weight goes into my stomach and my legs. Oh well. Here’s to your perkiness.

    My week has been… catastrophic? Disastrous? Downright horrific? So yeah, I hear ya! Pass the hard liquor.

  4. I managed to get my computer back up and running after crashing it, but I lost all the files/emails/system setting changes which had been added in the last 4 months due to making mistakes in restoring from my backup. It’s not as bad as it could be, at least I didn’t lose everything and my work stuff is on an entirely different computer, but it’s still a pain.

  5. This week has been a mixture of emotional breakdown and also a lazy one. I had a fight with one of my friends and cried a lot but then lazy as well because i got 5 days at home, no college, no work, just rest….too lazy indeed.
