Activity-wise, my spare time go in waves. So far this year, it’s been mostly about the books. I figure I have to get ahead in my challenge before my focus change.
I’ve got myself a Christmas cold. I would feel sorry for myself, but after nearly two years of feeling poorly without any results as to why (until it is suddenly depression/anxiety/panic attacks /burned out.) a cold is really manageable. I mean, drink plenty of fluids. Blow my nose. Try to avoid coughing/sneezing at people and… Continue reading *cough* Still alive.
that run, wander and meander through my mind when I lie in bed at night. I take a deep breath once I switch the light off, and prepare to fall asleep. But then the thoughts get free access to everything. No sensory overload to prevent it. All the things I should have done. All… Continue reading All the thoughts…
I am better. I am. I don’t get as fatigued as easily – it takes a lot more to push me to that point now than it did in February. Of course, I am also incredibly tired of the whole thing – and yet I know it is nothing compared to other people. But I… Continue reading Acceptance

(And in general, though I am talking about my depression and my anxiety, I am also trying to be more aware of not talking to people about it as I… Continue reading Up and down
I’m trying to finish my National Novel Writing Month project today (currently at 47388 words). While I am writing, I am now listening in on the latest in Norwegian slow-television – the Norwegian church’s book of hymns and psalms, sung from cover to cover by Norwegian choirs minute by minute. I started with the backlog today… Continue reading Nanowrimo and slow-tv
I have really been neglecting LJ. Of course, you shouldn’t feel too bad, I have been neglecting almost any social media/where I have to do stuff for the past couple of years (Facebook updating is scarce as well.) . From time to time, I get energy and try to blog – which sometimes work and… Continue reading So yeah (venting about health issues, and sorry for being away.) – Copied from LJ
