We’re having our Easter weather a couple of days late. Thunderstorms yesterday and this morning, I haven’t been caught out in it so I’ve been all right. I am so tired today. Bob had another bad night with his cough; neither one of us got any sleep. I’m starting to despair him ever getting better without going to the doctor and doing some kind of serious intervention. I don’t know what else they can do with allergies but something has to give around here.
I seriously don’t feel like doing anything at all but sleeping. I still have two workshopping essays to do this week so I haven’t finished my class stuff yet. My brain is just foggy, I’m going to get another coke and drink it and see if it helps my concentration any. I;m hoping I’m not slipping backwards. I think this is just going to be an off day and if I get a good night’s sleep tonight that I can make it better tomorrow.’
I have the meeting with NAMI this week on Friday. Hopefully that will go well. I am looking forward to it. I just hope it doesn’t become some kind of skirmish between God people and others. I don’t know how it would get that way, but I can easily see it doing so. I am just going to have to say “In my experience” a lot.
Been getting rejected lately. Two pieces on bipolar that I had a lot of hope for were rejected. They didn’t “fit” what the editors were trying to do. I wonder what that means, because they were special issues: one about invisible illness and another about people on the “margins”. So we will see if anyone else is interested.
I suppose I will just keep pressing on. Hopefully I will wake up and not be so drowsy the rest of the day.
