Yesterday was kind of a rough day after all because I was still mostly very tired from the ECT session on Wednesday. Even controlled seizures are still really exhausting to do the body. I felt good but tired so I was really grateful that I accidently had the wrong time on my calendar for my therapy appointment. Yesterday I was in no mood for therapy but today I am doing much better. This morning I even managed to write an educational blog post on one of my favorite Information Technology subjects, OpenBSD.
The main goal for today is do a vacuum and a light cleaning because my apartment is in dire need of it. I will wait a little bit because the neighbors might still be asleep. They both work customer service jobs so their days off vary. As much as I would like to get this knocked out now, I am not going to be inconsiderate. My life is certainly not very exciting. I forgot to make the follow-up phone call about employment that I intended to so I will make the call today. I think now that I am doing better I really want to do some work.
In the spirit of gratitude, today I am feeling really grateful for the support that I have in place. The support systems that I have in place really allowed me to start on the road to getting better. I am grateful for my friends Jim and Diane. I don’t really have many friends at all and it is nice to have a some that understand mental illness and know that I am not damaged goods. I am also grateful for my therapist, Walter. Walter is a good and decent human being whom also happens to be very much a socialist and an advocate for socialized medicine, a universal basic income, and an advocate for housing, clothing, and food. It’s nice to be able to have discussions with him about where this country needs to go.
