Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:
- It’s raining sunshine! Thanks so much to One Regular Dad for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award!
- I’m contemplating using a new theme for my blog. I’m actually quite content with my current theme (Sela), but it has been “retired” and is no longer being updated. That’s fine for now, but I’m sure at some point I’ll have to switch. I don’t like change, especially since change doesn’t always make things better. Speaking of which, I hate the recent revamp of the browser version of Twitter. It was already a lot of things to process all at once, and now it’s just gotten more jarring, so I just avoid it.
- As a guest on my blog this week, I had Noose Girl, who did an emerging blogger post about an ambulance joy ride while manic. And check out her latest post Be Thankful, which talks about how much she’s lost because of her illness and how she’s been able to start moving forward again.
It’s been a difficult week. I couldn’t sleep at all before my work shift Sunday night. Then on Monday morning day staff were really openly hostile because I’d called them out for being late last week. During my shift Monday night I was so stressed out I was shaking the whole night. As soon as my shift was done Tuesday morning I called in sick for Tuesday and Wednesday night, and went home and slept for 15 hours. It didn’t help that my best friend, who I used to work with when he was a health care worker at the same facility, was doing a nursing orientation shift there on Tuesday during the day, but he didn’t bother to tell me. Normally we talk every day and tell each other everything, so I was upset with him. Then he was mad that I was mad… Now it feels like there’s a wall between us – the same kind of wall my head puts up to keep unsafe people (aka almost everybody) away.
Anyway, I’ve been extra slow, low energy, I got smelly enough that I was grossing myself out, and my concentration has been worse than usual, but slowly things are getting easier.
How has your week been?
And with December starting tomorrow, I thought I’d share Action for Happiness’s kindness calendar for the month:
