So as part of my road to recovery, I’ve decided to start going on morning walks again, if only to get out of the house more. Today was day one, and I learned something right off the bat:

One more thing on the subject of my prolonged “unwellness”:

I’ve come to realize that I’ve been out sorts for so long that I literally may not recognize right away when I am fully recovered.

I’m Starting To Think I’m Unreasonable On That Point

June 21, 2021

One constant about myself that I’ve noticed over the years is that no matter what I’m trying to recover from, every day I haven’t recovered yet I have some variation of the thought, “Shouldn’t I have been over this yesterday?”

May 29, 2020

The other day I told Lala that apparently I wanted to empathize with her more, and therefore pulled something in my back out of sympathy with her own recent pulled back.
