Weekend wrap-up

Weekend wrap-up

wrapping paper, ribbon, and twine

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

  • I did a free download promotion on Monday for my book Psych Meds Made Simple, and it went over amazingly well, far beyond my expectations.  Thank you!!!
  • It fascinates me how some posts seem to act like magnets for certain kinds of characters.  I did a post earlier in the week on blog monetization options and ended up with a bunch of likes and follows from dodgy-sounding internet marketing sites, presumably in the hopes of dragging me over to their sites.  Just goes to show how meaningless stats can be sometimes.
  • My doctor thinks I have Mycoplasma pneumonia, which is a particular type of bacterial infection that doesn’t make you as sick as other types of bacterial pneumonia, but causes a persistent deep cough.  This is the same  thing I’ve been having off and on for the last three years or so, but I hadn’t seen a doctor about it before because I figured it was viral and had to just run its course.  Some research has suggested there might be a link between autoimmune disease and recurrent Mycoplasma infections.
  • Speaking of which, I got my appointment date to see the rheumatologist that my GP referred me to.  It’s in April, which is pretty good as these things go; I was thinking it would probably take a couple months longer than that.
  • My concentration has mostly been crap.  Trying to read anything abstract is pretty much beyond me.  I’ll reach the end of reading a blog post and have no idea what I just read.  Oh well, it is what it is.
  • I’ve seen a few episodes of Marie Kondo‘s show on Netflix, and while I don’t buy some of her ideas, I was curious about her clothes folding method.  This week I gave it a try, and although I was quite a bit more haphazard with it than her exact approach, I was pretty impressed with the results.

How has your week been?

  1. My week has been a mix of things. I got sick particularly on Wednesday simply because I was sickened at each thought of waking up to go to work. It’s totally crazy… The way it’s ending is perfect though; a lot of motivation and yoga 🧘‍♀️ so am so grateful

  2. I’m impressed that you were able to land an appointment that early too. Good for you!
    I haven’t been to the doctors for the annoying cough I’ve had for a month now. I just contirbute it to Winter allergies, and the fact that my roommate is a slob.
    And, she wonders why I don’t usually sit downstairs with her. Duh???
    Hoping you feel better really, really soon. 😊

  3. I wish you didn’t have to wait until April!! The diagnosis of some form of recurring pneumonia makes sense!! Maybe you’re one step closer to figuring out the underlying issue! I hope so!!

    My week has been blah! My period’s finally ending, so maybe I can write more of my novel at long last. I’ve been unfocused, too, so yesterday I literally had to force myself to clean my room. And then I wouldn’t let myself stop, because I knew I’d be even more unwilling to clean today. I got a lot done!

      1. It’s so much easier to see things when they’re lined up on their sides. I haven’t actually refolded everything of mine yet, but I can imagine what it will look like once it’s done 🙂
