Better day, kinda.

I had a better mental day today, physical kicked my but!

No flash backs, and was able to really sit down and talk with Stuart.

My allergies are out of control! It appears I’m now allergic to my cat. It’s so hard. I’m determined not to re-home him, but I have to find an antihistamine that works! The pharmacist told me about a prescription one, I’m going to ask my doctor.

If this doesn’t work I’ll see if I can find someone to bathe him, or shave him. Anything!!

Right now I’m spending most of my time in the casita (my studio I rarely use, but that’s a different story). I’m lucky I have somewhere to go, I have a much higher understanding and empathy for those I know with a cat allergy.

It’s late again, and I’m awake.

I’m scared.

Not the same reason, thankfully.

I’ve been having vertigo on and off all night. Waking up in the middle of the night with vertigo really sucks!

So I’m scared.

I got the latest COVID booster and my first shingles shot (I didn’t know it was a two shot vaccine… Ugh). My shingles shot side is already so sore I can barely use my arm. The other side isn’t bad at all, I feel it, but it’s minor.

Oh I did a little bit of art today, that was nice. Not finished, and I’m just covering some boxes with a mixture of torn newspaper background, with paint added in a decorative fashion. Some intuitive art.

I also sent a special complaint about the security guard. I strongly incouraged them to give their security personnel better training on how to deal with patients, especially disabled patients, with an emphasis on dealing with invisible disabilities.

I didn’t say it, but the way I worded it let them know I’m an advocate for myself and I’m not afraid to have his they deal with the ADA investigated.

I may be afraid, but I’m still strong, and brave.. even if I don’t always feel it.
