Shrink Day

A 5-post collection

Friday, Plague Day 11, Shrinkydinks

I need more sleep. I am pretty much constantly out of breath. I do still possess my sense of smell.

I have learned that I am better at doing things when I am seated. Which puts an entire kibosh on a lot of activities.

I have also had an incident with the low-blood pressure wooblies. In which standing up almost causes me to pass out.

Which, in turn, means that my Beloved is on my tail to imbibe more fluids. Bless.

It seems to be working, so I shouldn't complain.

I'm still having a lot of trouble with a lot of walking. Either my legs get weak or, like this morning, having a knee decide to stop working properly.


Anyway, I have a small space of time to write today's tale. During which, I must take my daily dose of atrovent by nebuliser. Because Bad Air Days are my life now. My O2 levels are still above 95% which is apparently human normal. I still need it because it makes breathing much less stress.

Onwards to fiction. Let's get it going.

Wednesday, Wordpress and Shrinky Shenanigans

I derped, yesterday, and mistook the date of my shrink appointment for yesterday instead of today. Fun. So now I have more leftover anxiety to flop around about on Date Night. Yay.

I may or may not write about my first encounter with possible sexual assault later today. My shrink and my Beloved will be the only people who get a direct link.

In other news, a very dumb American state has passed a bill to "protect women" by... (reads the smudged

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon, Shrink, and Dink

Plague news: Two new cases, both imports. There's sixteen total active cases, fourteen of them are in hospital. Australia's at 90.5% first vax, 83% fully vaxxed. Queensland's still last in the vax rate at 82% first vax and 70.5% fully vaxxed. Now that we're at 70% first dose, the borders are OPEN.

Bring on the plague carriers from NSW and Victoria, I guess.

Tuesday, Day 0, Headshrinkery Ho

My normal routine is on the road this morning. I shall be working on the lappy as I go a-roaming. My shrink is in for some edutainment today.

Thirteen total cases, and eleven of those are in hospital.

Also today is the official beginning of me staying the hell away from anything close to a carb. I have been indulging too much in my sweet tooth and its been getting to my health.

Not looking at the news. I have nonsense to
