snapshots of my week – 27th january

doesn’t that blanket look inviting? other than books, buying blankets is probably my other main weakness. i justify it with the fact that most of them are second hand/vintage and that my body temperature control has never been normal, so i’m either ridiculously cold or unbearably hot. there’s seemingly little inbetween.

my goodness my brain has been all over the place lately. brain fog has hit me HARD. i’ll have moments or part of a day of being ‘on’ but for the most part it’s like i’m not all here – like something has snatched my attention and won’t give it back to me. i still feel like myself (one of my biggest fears is lack of control of my mentality and personality – which is why i rarely drink) but it’s still hard to deal with when you know you’re capable of so much more. it’ll take time, but it will pass. that’s what keeps me going.

that, and notes and lists. so many notes and lists to remind me to do things, and notes to remind me to look at the notes. and alarms as a backup just incase. honestly it’s ridiculous but you do what you can to cope, don’t you?

another thing that’s keeping my spirits up is knowing that spring will be here soon. hopefully that means less joint pain and a clearer mind as well as more colour in nature, slightly less biting wind and a general sense of ‘ahhh’.

hopefully i can get back to my ‘old self’ soon and have something more interesting to say, and more varied content too!

      do love a bit of pink. i’d rather the physical pain, at least i can (to some degree) do things with some sort of purpose rather than feeling aimless when i know i’m not. it’s still rubbish and depressing etc but i find it easier to deal with. but i suppose you have to take each day as it is. easier said than done, eh? how are your lungs feeling now, hopefully recovered a little?
