Hey everyone, how are you?
I am back writing after a bad weekend with my mental health, I feel that things are slowly returning to normal.
Today, I am aiming to get back writing like normal. I didn’t do any over the weekend because I was in a really bad head space and couldn’t do anything. I do have a telephone appointment at some point during the day, but I am hoping that I can write around it. The writing will be centred around the book chapter as I have a meeting tomorrow with the other author about it. It is mostly researching and seeing how we can put what I have already written into a chapter. It means spending some time downloading and reading other research journals but that is okay, as long as I can print them. As because of my dyslexia I find it hard to read on screen and no longer have the reading software that I had when I was at university.
I started to be able to feel as though I could write again yesterday. After I had a good telephone appointment with the doctor. Although my concentration levels are not back up to what they normally are, but I am able to do a lot more than I was able to at the weekend. I think sleeping throughout the weekend helped me. Sometimes I find sleep is the best medicine, even though most of the time I am an insomniac. I don’t know if I will have the time to look at the short story as well. As I still have a lot of research to do and the telephone appointment that I have today can last up to an hour. Also, depending on the time that I am done with the appointment, I may also need to go out. As I need to collect a prescription and get a couple of things that are needed at home.
But I am just glad to be in a better head space. I am also reading some more and it feels good to be getting back to normal. My gaming and writing routine is not quite there yet, but it is a definite improvement from the weekend. I am going to try and get some gaming in this morning and see where it leads. I really liked the gaming and writing routine that I had going and the main thing is that it worked. Which is why I am not wanting to give it up. So, things are moving in a more positive direction and I am happy with that.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
