Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:
- I’m still walking extremely slowly, but overall movement is a little better. I went up on the dose of the Parkinson’s med I started last week.
- Booklife is a site run by Publisher’s Weekly that’s aimed at indie authors. You can enter your book to be considered for a review by Publisher’s Weekly, which is free but not that many books get selected. I got an email that Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis was selected to be reviewed, and that’ll happen sometime in the next couple of months. I was quite surprised, mostly because I would have thought that the book was far too niche to be up their alley.
- When I was at the pet supply store, I saw my very first community psychiatrist from back in 2007. I highly doubt he recognized me.
- I had an uncomfortable encounter in my building’s underground parking. I was carrying my grocery bags and walking from my car to the elevator lobby. Some kind of tradesperson came out of the elevator lobby, and he was holding the door open for me. As slow as I am, I wasn’t going to make it there anytime soon and had no desire to have him watch me inching along, so I tried several times to tell him politely not to hold the door. That didn’t work, so I had to be rude (rude by Canadian über-politeness standards, anyway). Such is life.
- Seen on Walmart.ca: a “seemless” cami. Good old Walmart, classy all the way.
As guests on my blog this week, I had:
- Janine from Nina’s Corner, who wrote about social anxiety disorder and sense of self
- Doctor Getting Sober wrote about whethera diagnosis makes a difference
How has your week been?
