I haven’t been updating much recently, but I’ve honestly been kind of busy in a not-terribly-interesting fashion.
So, lessee… I finally went to the doctor’s appointment set up to determine if I’m disabled, after it had to be rescheduled due to a snowstorm. The verdict? According to the doctor’s opinion, I’m disabled and my brain is (unsurprisingly) the problem. So, at least that part’s out of the way.
I’ve been working on trying to keep my anxiety in check without having to rely too heavily on a beta blocker. I’m usually okay– things only seem to get difficult for me when I’m alone, or if I have an upset stomach. For some reason, the pain and pressure seems to make my heart race like nobody’s business (even after removing grain and dairy from my diet). C’est la guerre.
My laptop has also come as close as a laptop possibly can to biting the grass. It’s had an occasional blue screen of death for awhile now, but wasn’t really suffering performance-wise other than that– really, it was less frequent and annoying than being bugged about Windows updates. The hard drive wasn’t making any noises, nothing else was behaving oddly… And then the keyboard started up. It should be noted that I haven’t used the built-in keyboard for awhile now. Not only is it sort of donkity, it’s difficult for me to see and type on. Displeased with this lack of attention, it resorted to typing Qs every time I wasn’t paying attention. Just hell of strings of Q, line after line. Sometimes it’d scroll to the bottom of whatever I was trying to do. Annoyed by this tiny mutiny, I disabled the keyboard entirely to no avail. Luckily, my S.O.’s set up my desktop since then, so I still have something to use.
That’s about all I’ve been involved with lately. My days aren’t thrilling, I imagine, but they’re mostly tranquil. We’re coming closer to the end of our lease here, which means another round of (hopefully more successful) apartment hunting in an area that’ll make for a shorter commute for my SO. I can’t wait for the weather to clear up again. I still have about nine thousand aloe plants.
Here’s hoping the wintry weather’s treating you well.
