This past week or so has been a busy week in some regards and a not so busy week in other regards. Here are some of the excuses I have for why I didn’t write much this past week:
There were a couple of used book sales in the local area at the tail end of last week. Somehow, my wife and I managed to make it through both only spending about $30. It helps that we both have book lists of specific books were chasing at these book sales.
Also, the NHL playoffs are ongoing and the Boston Bruins and the St Louis Blues, two teams I follow, are both still in the playoffs. I’ve had way too many late night sessions watching or listening to games go overtime. As a result, there’s been some further twisting to an already twisted sleep schedule.
And last, and certainly not least, this past week has been an off week for me productively due to anxiety and depression days. Since my own experiences with anxiety, depression, and ocd are a focus for this blog, I decided to not make excuses, apologize, or hide the fact that sometimes bad days will interfere with writing and art projects I am working on because:
- It’s not fair to anyone who follows this blog for the mental illness stuff.
- It shows that good and bad days are just part of the deal, even when you’re properly medicated. and
- It’s not being honest with myself and one of the reasons I write this blog is that there’s too much bad information about mental illness floating around.
