I’ve had a productive day so far today.
This morning I woke up at 7 AM. I got up then as I had to be out the door by 8:45. I was meeting my PA at the store at 8:45. I had to go to argos which is a store that sells all sorts of things. I was picking up an external hard drive for my computer.
When I got to the store my PA was already there. I decided to go to starbux first to have a mocha and a cookie, before going in to pick up my hard drive. Its compulsory now here to wear masks in stores, so we each had a mask on.
I got my mocha and offered to get my PA a cup of tea but she said she didnt want anything. The mocha was yummy. I had whipped cream on it.
We picked up my hard drive and then we got a taxi back to my house. Once we got back I tested out my new hard drive. It worked ok, so I started loading my audiobooks on to it. My PA started cleaning the house. She did the vacuming and then she said would it be ok if she took Nitro for a walk before she mopped the floors and did the dishes.
So they went out for 20 minutes and Nitro had a nice walk. They met a guy with an apple on their walk, and Nitro decided o go up to the guy and sniff the apple, hoping the guy would give it to him. I had to laugh when my PA told me about it. The guy got a bit of a fright when this big lab stuck his nose into his hand looking for his red apple.
When my PA got back she mopped the floors and did my dishes. Then at 11 AM she left. My friend Norma had rang me asking if it was ok if she called over. I told her she could as I wasnt working until the afternoon. So she came just after 11 and she stayed until 1:30.
After she left I started doing my calls for friendly call. I wasnt really in the mood for work but I did it anyway. Thank goodness all of my clients were feeling ok today. Dont know what I’d have done if they werent. Dr. Barry told me yesterday she feels I need to take some more time off, just while I am feeling unwell. So I think I’ll ask for some more time off next week.
I’ve no plans for the rest of the evening. I’m going to read my book, watch tv, read email and blog posts. I also need to call my mom. My community psychiatric nurse sarah just called me a few minutes ago. We had a good chat. She said she’d check in again on Monday to see how I am doing.
I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot today but I didnt shower which I feel bad about. I just wasnt in the mood for it this morning though. Maybe later on this evening I can hop in the shower. I have to psych myself up for it though. I know I’m unwell when I dont feel like I can shower. I know somethings really wrong when that happens.
On a scale of 1-10 the anxietys at a 10. I’m super anxious. I’m going to make a cup of tea and then read my book for a while.
