Goals for March

My goal for March is pretty basic. Take my time and get better from this burnout, and figure out steps to prevent it from being a recurring thing. I am now over two weeks into the sick leave. The fogginess in my head partially lifted this week. I have energy for longer stretches of time now –… Continue reading Goals for March

Status for February goals

In February I wanted to… Order tickets to visit Oslo. – I did not do this. With the level of energy I was having, traveling anywhere seemed like a major task – and even ordering tickets for a future date seemed unwise. Play in the KVSC Trivia Weekend. 50 hours of trivia. Playing from Norway, on… Continue reading Status for February goals

Burnout: week 1

One week of staying home from work. Honestly, it does not feel like it. It feels like I was at work yesterday. One reason for that is that the majority of the days go by quickly without feeling like I do much of anything. I  sleep a lot, and it takes me a long time… Continue reading Burnout: week 1

Burned out

On Thursday, I went to my doctor. (We have been having bi-weekly appointments since November/December.) Back in September the theory was that various physical ailments that have popped up since January 2013 (at least) were depression and anxiety related. (Dizziness, nausea, headaches, tiredness, feeling down, etc.) So I have been having sessions with my GP… Continue reading Burned out

In-between ill

Of course, it became evident when the fever left me that I am really terrible at being “in-between” ill. When I had fever and was coughing, I was quite good at that. Making sure I had enough to drink. Kept warm or cold depending on what my body wanted. And took a couple of Panodil to get… Continue reading In-between ill

The flu

When I visited my grandmother in the nursing home on Saturday, she and the other inmates were a coughing choir. On Monday, two days later, the cold I had been waiting for, for weeks, broke. Only, I suspect the flu instead, as there is fever, aches in the muscles, lack of appetite, mucus and a… Continue reading The flu

January resolutions

Happy New Year, people! I never keep the resolutions I intend for a whole year, so I thought I would try to have some resolutions each month this year, instead, and then hope at least some of them will become new habits. Or you know, a way to get it done. In January, I will… Read more paper-books… Continue reading January resolutions

Nobel prize week

I’m oddly emotional about the fact that two Norwegians have a share each in the prize for medicine. Never heard of them, but I had to choke back a tear nevertheless. Norwegians winning stuff will do that to me. Apparently in most areas where something can be won.


A selection of photos from the åast couple of weeks. I moved home from Oslo, and went straight to work. My holiday time is in the end of August… But I still have managed to enjoy the summertime.
