I have continued feeling like a normal human being today. Had brunch with a friend. Am now able to spend time with people who are not my spouse without feeling slightly panicked. I did not realize that I was experiencing that until I felt its absence today.
This reminds me of what happened at chiropractor when they asked me how the tension between my shoulder blades was. Fine, I said. Then the massage therapist placed his hand between my shoulder blades and I realized that they were not fine at ALL. I guess this is the opposite. But they somehow seem related.
Coming out of the Sad is unlikely to be an instantaneous thing, but I will try to make sure I am progressing forward in general instead of backward.
I am going to see Carrie Newcomer in concert tomorrow. If you are local (in the Twin Cities) you should totally go.
When I came home from work yesterday I really wanted to go inside and read, but I made myself go outside and work in the garden instead. Then I talked to a few neighbors and accepted help from one of the neighbor kids in clearing the dead leaves from my messy front hill garden.
Normal, normal, normal.
I even checked my gmail (sort of) and discovered that my inbox had not, in fact, become sentient and grown five-inch fangs dripping with poison. I missed a few emails. But none of them were life-or-death situations. If you are having a life-or-death situation and cannot reach me, please contact my spouse so I am aware of your messages
This morning I noticed that the "cat hair" growing in the aquarium had become such an issue that it clogged the filter. Time to clear it out. This afternoon. I will rope in assistance from assistants.
