Staycation and other things

After lengthy discussions with my supervisor, I have elected to take a week off starting last Saturday. It’s hard for me to step away from work. I spent too many years being completely unproductive that I am a bit uncomfortable at being “unproductive.” Resting doesn’t come easy to me, which is not the best thing when it comes to my own health. So, in light of all that I have been through in the past few months, after repeated prodding by my supervisor, I am taking a bit of time off. I will then attempt to work a light week next week, though with my presentation and written project looming in the background (along with other papers I have to write), I may not be able to have as light a week as I would like.

In the spirit of this though, I hope not to pour myself just into another task such as this blog, so postage may be still intermittent until I finish off my M.Sc.

As I have previously noted, I have recently changed medications. I don’t particularly like a very bitter pill that I have to let dissolve in my mouth for ten minutes without rinsing but I seem to be sleeping less. This is in some ways bad because I am used to being completely knocked out for 8-10 hours a night, so my sleeping still is a bit spotty. My thoughts seem normal, though I will see if the psychiatrist agrees with that.

Anyways, that’s where the blog stands at this point.


About Neil

I happen to have paranoid schizophrenia. But that is only a small part of who I am. I define me, not my illness. I always try and choose hope and choose to be a better person, though like all people, I have more than a few failures. Some have been rather spectacular.
