We are now a couple weeks into summer. I can notice already that the days are a little shorter than they were a few weeks ago. I got a new air conditioner as my previous unit broke down. It was the original unit from when my complex was built. So I don’t have to rely on fans and cold baths anymore.
Summers are traditionally a rough time for me, especially July and August. So far I feel stable and calm. I haven’t had problems with depression or paranoia since I changed my medications. And I even sleep less than I did during the winter and spring. I still don’t socialize much outside of phone calls and internet. But I have been enjoying the summer anyway. I still play a lot of computer games. I’m also listening to a lot of audiobooks on youtube. I’m currently working on the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov. I usually play Civilization or Medieval Total War on my PC while listening to audiobooks on my Mac.
I have beens staying up later the last several nights. But I am still getting eight hours of sleep a night. I still sleep in until late mornings. I just stay up later and sleep less. I like staying up late as I have been a night person as long as I can remember.
It’s good to distract the mind. Thank you for sharing.
