Had an appointment with my psych doctor this morning. We did a conference with an app similar to Zoom. While my hometown has gotten it easy (so far) as far as the pandemic goes, my doctor offers this service to his patients. We didn’t make any changes and I’m supposed to see him again in two months.
Been reading much more lately. I not only read on my e-reader, but I am also reading some of my old hardback books. Reading some of my old poetry books for the first time in several years. I usually read in bed as it’s more comfortable for me.
Found out my neighbors are moving out. I’m sorry to see them go. We’ve had lots of people come and go this year. I recently celebrated my 14th anniversary in this complex. I’m now becoming one of the longest tenured residents in here. I admit I usually don’t pay much attention to the comings and goings of people unless they’ve been here for a few months.
Been staying up later lately. I usually stay awake until midnight and wake for good at 8am. I still wake up at least once in the middle of the night most nights. My aches and pains are less than usual lately. Even my morning aches and pains are more bearable. I usually take some advil in the mornings and that’s all I need.
Mentally I’ve been stable. I avoid most news channels and social media these days. I avoid the drama in my complex too. I no longer have the patience for drama and nonsense. I can’t remember the last time I watched cable news. Almost no one I know does anymore.
I’m now almost five months into weathering this pandemic. I can stay isolated for a long time if necessary. Able to do this with some planning and buying extra food and supplies every time I get paid.
