I think I did a pretty good job of not letting stubborn "everything is fine" brain run the show today. Also successfully didn't cook anymore brain cells.
To start the day I engaged in some recreational plumbing but gave up when it became clear that it wouldn't be much fun. Decided to get a new dishwasher instead.
Some days I might have spent all day stubborning my way through the problem. Fruitlessly. Before admitting defeat. Instead we just got a new dishwasher. It's much nicer. And the dishes actually get clean.
Part two of keeping a lid on things was that I declined to paddle in the dragon boat race today. And it was a good call. Had I paddled I would have been in full sun on the water all day. Instead I came as a spectator for a few hours and I was wiped out.
I had no idea that it could take multiple days to bounce back from heat stuff. I have no fantastic insights on Depression today. But I didn't feel like it was running the show.
