Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:
- I don’t like Facebook. Since I started blogging I’ve opened and then deleted a Facebook account a couple of times. I decided to give it another go this past week, until I saw that Facebook was creepily accurate in suggesting people I might know. This was despite the fact that I used my blog-related email address rather than my normal personal email. My guess is that it’s because Facebook now forces you to give a phone number when opening an account, and they must know that number is associated with the account I had years ago. I don’t want these people I knew in the past seeing me any more than I want to be seeing them, so that’s it, Facebook and I are permanently broken up.
- I worked 3 night shifts this week. I felt rather dazed and confused, but at least working at night that’s not too much of a problem. I saw an email sent by a colleague criticizing how I handled a situation with a client a few months back. I was aware she had sent this email, because she’d sent it to the whole team in response to an email I’d sent to the whole team, but it was the first time I actually read it. It was extremely condescending and just as extremely full of shit. I was tempted to respond and stand up for myself, but sadly I have learned that in this particular workplace speaking up accomplishes nothing but create problems and keeping my mouth shut is the best way to go.
- I’ve been having weird vibrating sensations this week. It was happening a lot a couple of months ago, and then it had stopped. I’m sometimes noticing sounds that seem out of place. This was happening mostly on days I was working, and it seems to be triggered by feeling overstimulated. I had meant to go see my doctor this week, but work kind of got in the way, so I’ll see him next week.
- I had a massage, one of my favourite self-care activities. My massage therapist has booked me in for every Thursday morning for the rest of the year. Sweet!
My writing off the blog this week:
- Food as Therapy on Vocal Media’s Longevity
- Juggling Writing and the Effects of Mental Illness on The Writing Cooperative
How has your week been?
