    The energy of others

    Today was a good day. It's been a while since I have had a truly deeply good day. And when I say "good day". I mean all around. From waking up aaaaall the way to laying in bed (right now). And I believe that a large reason for the good day was I was feeding off of the good energy of those around me.
    Most days I am home alone, mainly. My husband is at work but he doesn't come home until evening, so the day is usually all mine. And it's spent alone. My energy level is usually very low. My pain level is normally mid to high. But this morning I awoke with energy. With a low pain level. A friend drove an hour and a half to spend the day Really!?! And we spent time with family also. Laughing, talking, eating. You could almost SEE the positive energy around us. It was so beautiful!
    So tonight I lay here and I think of my day. My wonderful day. And I am so thankful. I feel so blessed. Days like these are rare. Like going-into-the-woods-and-almost-petting-a-deer rare. I want to savor this day, cherish it. I wish I could bottle this beautiful energy. The energy of friends and family. The energy from the laughter and conversation. The energy from the love felt by each person. I wish I could bottle that all up and use a little bit each day. Because today felt so good that I think I'm addicted to it, and I might have withdrawals. 😉❤️ #GoodDay #Depression #SchizoaffectiveDisorder #ComplexRegionalPainSyndrome #Insomnia #goodenergy

    Solved a writing impasse today!

    Today, I finally got some progress made on one of my book writing projects! I've been wanting to for months, but just haven't had the energy, or the inspiration. Worse, every time I tried to start working on it, I ran across the same impasse, where I couldn't figure out how to transform this bulleted list of random thoughts into connected prose. Today, I was suddenly inspired to just start writing some stuff, and after several pages (or maybe only a few, but lots of writing, anyways) I suddenly figured out how to solve my impasse!!! And I even learned how to use the cross reference and bookmark functions (sort of) so that I can organize everything, and sort out all the accumulated thoughts into something coherent!! So that means I even know the next step for the next time I work on it!!

    Oh, yeah, and I hyperfocused on it for like 6 hours today!! 😁😁😂. Not straight, but pretty close. No break longer than 10 minutes, probably closer to 5. And only 2 of those! (And a couple 1-2 minutes ones, if that.)

    So no walk today, but I probably needed the rest anyways.

    Now, as I wind down for the night, the happier it makes me!

    Oh yeah, this one is on some of the things I've learned in my decades of dealing with depression and trauma.
