Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:
- I’ve been back on Instagram a bit after taking several months off. It’s interesting to see just how many people that used to be around in the blogosphere have shifted entirely to Instagram. I have a pleasant bunch of people in my Instagram feed, but posting seems like too much effort, what with needing to create visuals and not being able to do it on my laptop like I do everything else.
- I got a letter from the disability people saying that they still hadn’t received the medical report from my doctor, and they must receive it by the end of this month. My doctor was supposed to do it early last month, so what, he can pull it out of his ass to refer me for TMS without talking to me about it, but he can’t be bothered doing my disability form? I so do not have the extra mental resources available to deal with this kind of shit, so I was crying when I called the doctor’s office. The receptionist said they mailed it on November 6. I’d told him it was due November 9, and Canada Post doesn’t work that fast in the times of COVID-. Anyway, so then I called the CPP disability people because the letter I got said that if my doctor had mailed in the form, I should call them and let them know the date. I got through to a person pretty much right away, and by that point, I was doing the vocal version of ugly crying. It took a while for dude to decipher what I was saying, but anyway, they did receive the report, but not until after they sent the letter to me. If I’m going to vocally ugly cry, I would prefer it be directed at the people who need to conclude I’m crazy, but the whole thing was all kinds of exhausting. And my doctor is definitely on my shit list now.
- I saw my baby niece this week. I was over at my brother’s place for about an hour and a half while his wife was at an appointment. I find that anything longer than an hour gets to be pretty tiring. She is cute, though.
- I’ve gotten several voice mails this week from spoofed numbers with an automated voice saying “stay safe and stay home,” and that’s it. Doing a little bit of digging, this has been reported in both Canadian and the US over the past few months, and there was recently a surge of these robocalls on election day in the US. It’s weird, because what’s the point? It’s not a scam where they’re asking you to do something. I can see it as a voter suppression tactic on election day, but aside from that, why? My guess is it’s Russia, and this is a warm-up for something else they’re cooking up.
- Pinterest has randomly gotten mad at me before, and it’s happened again this week, although not as extreme. What I find weird is that they don’t say “you shouldn’t do [x]”, yet they’ll penalize you for doing [x] that you didn’t even know was a thing.
How has your week been?
