Weekend wrap-up

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

  • I launched my book Psych Meds Made Simple.  It was very cool to get such a positive reaction from people.  Thank you! ❤️  And because of the fabulous people who bought my ebook, it’s a #1 new release in the “popular psychology psychopharmacology” category on Amazon.  Now granted, I don’t imagine there’s a whole lot of competition in that particular micro-mini-niche, but it’s still pretty darn cool.
  • As I mentioned in my post yesterday on psychomotor retardation, I’ve been really slowed down this week.  That has meant not leaving the house, not showering until I got so stinky I grossed myself out, and watching the minutes tick by with agonizing slowness.  Luckily you can get everything you need delivered these days, so I haven’t needed to leave home at all.  Thankfully there’s been an improvement as the week has gone on.  This morning I ventured past my front door for the first time in a week.  Not very far, mind you; I just took out some recycling and picked up my mail, and it was ok but I’m still walking very slowly.
  • Uncomfortable Revolution™ published my story A Venetian Romantic Getaway For Me and My Depression.  I also published Easy money-saving tricks on Vocal Lifehack.
  • I didn’t get much writing done this week (the pieces I just mentioned were written a while ago), and I definitely appreciate my system of always having 2-3 weeks worth of posts scheduled ahead of time; it keeps me from putting any pressure on myself around writing.


How has your week been?


psych meds made simple


My first book, Psych Meds Made Simple: How & Why They Do What They Do, is now available on Amazon as an ebook or paperback.  It’s everything you didn’t realize you wanted to know about medications!

    Huge congratulations about the book and your other articles getting published! 😍 It sucks about the psychomotor retardation, but that’s true and a very good thing that at least you can get what you need without going out. I hope next week will be better for you with this. 🙂

    It might be somewhat easy to have a high rank in an obscure category, but I’ve looked at your numbers, and your book had a super-high overall ranking, which is downright awesome!!! Great job! That’s a successful book launch if ever I’ve seen one!

    I’ve ordered the paperback to put on my “friends” shelf! That’s where I gather books written by myself and my friends!! YAY!!

    I’ll have to include your book on a blog post soon if you’d like? #1 new release, that’s awesome! I’m sorry you’re still doing it tough with the slowness in general but it’s a good sign to get past your front door a little. I’ve found today things may be easing up for me too (current flare seems to have lasted about 2 weeks and is driving me insane). Fingers crossed things continue to get a little easier, bit by bit, for you. Congrats on the other publications too, off to check those out now. I hope this week is kind to you 🙂
