Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:
- Michelle from Michelle Writer Blog nominated me for the blogger recognition award. Thanks so much!
- A random person (as in someone who doesn’t read my blog) got in touch with me this week to say he’d found my book Psych Meds Made Simple really useful. I thought that was pretty cool. That book is like the little engine that could.
- I’ve had quite a few downloads this week of one of the freebies on the MH@H Store, and some investigating on Google Analytics reveals that people are ending up there via Pinterest. I find Pinterest so fascinating, as there seems to be little rhyme or reason as to what works and what doesn’t.
- My doctor thought it would be a good idea to increase the dose of my stimulant (dextroamphetamine) from 20 to 30mg a day to see if it will get me moving somewhat faster than a snail’s pace. I like how reasonable and pragmatic he is; he cares about what’s likely to be helpful and doesn’t look at the stimulant any differently than any of my other meds.
- I came across an article on Medium.com this week entitled “If you aren’t at least a little schizophrenic your writing may suck.” I would think that most people would recognize that’s just a smidge problematic, but apparently not. At least the writer was reasonable when I pointed it out her.
- I finally dealt with the car issue that I didn’t feel up to handling a couple of weeks ago. Luckily I was eventually able to get it started and get it to the garage. It turned out the battery needed to be replaced, which was relatively inexpensive in the grand scheme of things.
- I’ve felt quite sad for the later part of the week. Despite having depression I don’t often feel sad, but it is what it is.
- The book I’m currently reading tells us ladies that we should give our vaginas empowering names and say daily affirmations for our urethras. Perhaps I’ll call mine Sharon-Stone’s-Leg-Crossing-Move-in-Fatal-Attraction. A little unwieldy, but I think I’m feeling empowered already!
- This week’s spam email of the week is from email@example.com. Because really, who wouldn’t take that seriously with so many letters involved?
How has your week been?
