We are falling into a routine after the stress of the last few days.
I’m slowly getting back into my work projects, and Lynn is doing some online marketing for the store and her home-based-businesses.
The air in the house is definitely somber compared to what it was, but the other two dogs are starting to get back to to normal.
Taffy, the pug-beagle cross, was losing her mind when she saw birds flitting around outside the window. She has the cutest little bark. Rolo is still pretty mellow, but he is starting to bark a bit more himself.
I’m feeling a bit better since the doc made the adjustment to my medication, but the problem I am finding now is that when it does knock me out, I’m sleeping in excess of 10 hours. Still, I feel the anxiety inside calming and I feel like I am getting some of my concentration back which has allowed me to read again, and get some writing done.
My fitness regime has been going well. I’ve worked out the last 12 days straight, however I think today is going to be a recovery day. I feel like I need the rest and quiet.
With everything that has gone on in the last couple of weeks, I feel spent. The last few weeks have been anxiety provoking and stressful, and despite the fact that I am feeling a bit better, I am struggling. I’m struggling to make sense of everything that has gone on, in the world and at home.
For a change, even as stressed as I am I’m not suicidal, but I do feel like I’m barely hanging on and am approaching my breaking point. I feel optimistic that I can make it through this downswing, provided nothing else gets piled on me. That’s the plan at least.
I don’t have a lot of work coming up, but I am starting to get a little bit of movement again, so even if it’s not as much as I was doing before, it’s a start. In the meantime I’ve been reading and studying. My course is still ongoing, and it has requirements that need to be met.
I’m also working on my photography skills. I’ve been going through my photography magazines and web-sites, just hammering home the skills I am going to need to full make a go of my photography business when this is all over and we’re able to mingle amongst each other again.
