Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:
- I’ve known for quite a while now that WordPress will randomly unfollow you from other bloggers. I’ve noticed this myself, and heard of other people experiencing the same thing. It’s hard to notice, though, unless you’re far more on the ball than I am. But in the last couple of months, WP had removed me as a follower of Melissa at Zerospace. The first time I noticed because I was responding to her comments and saw that i wasn’t following. Then the two times in the last week or so, she noticed that I wasn’t following. Screw you, WordPress! Quit being a pain in the ass!
- I have a pin on Pinterest comparing and contrasting introversion, shyness, and social anxiety disorder. It’s from quite a while back, but it continues to get comments on a fairly regular basis (who comments on Pinterest?). There seems to be a theme of people struggling a lot with social anxiety but not really knowing that social anxiety disorder is a thing.
- I knew Reese’s dark chocolate peanut butter thins existed, but couldn’t find them in a store… until this week. What a wonderful creation, and I was a bit surprised by how well the chocolate to peanut butter ratio works.
- I had an appointment with a psychiatrist last weekend that I’d booked a couple of weeks before through a network of family practice clinics. My meds were running out that day. Half an hour before the appointment, II get a text saying the psychiatrist has cancelled the appointment because “patients needs cannot be met through virtual clinic service.” That’s fucked up on many levels. I did end up finding someone to order my meds, but that was a massive fork in the ass. Stress makes my psychomotor slowing worse, so I’ve been mobile all week. Fun stuff. I put in a complaint to the clinic, which they acknowledged, but he only works for them one day a week, so I haven’t gotten an actual response yet.
This is Casper saying “treat please!” She knows exactly when to expect treats, and she’ll remind me if I’m not on the ball. Morning treat is celery, and lunchtime treat is a guinea pig biscuit.
How has your week been?
