Back on the virtual saddle

One good thing to come out of my virtual immobilisation – getting back into Warcraft.  It has been so long that everything feels (mostly) fresh.  I forgot how much I loved the story of it all.  I think Blizzard have stepped it up a notch with this expansion.  The intro quests alone feel epic.  It is good to be back. My chest is still hurting.  Sometimes I forget about it then get up too quick and boom there it is!  Having said that the weekend seems to have gone slowly for once.  Not that I am complaining but it does feel kind of eerie.  Perhaps it is not sleeping that heavily (except for when I’ve had some pain killers.)  I’ve always been a night owl so around 5 hours max is usually good for me.  Unless it is the weekend and sometimes I make up for it!  Not much chance …

Mind dumping

I started writing this Monday night but I just couldn’t finish it for some reason.  I have had a dark couple of nights mentally so this post might end up a bit of a mash-up.  Anyway, here goes… The weekend didn’t go according to plan.  The weather was terrible so stargazing was off the table.  We’ll probably go further afield next weekend which will hopefully bring us better luck.  It is either that or just driving until we can find some clear sky!  I guess patience is a virtue when it comes to the perfect conditions we are looking for.

Keeping the beast at bay

This morning started off badly for me mentally. For some reason an ominous feeling came over me which I couldn’t shake. I racked my brain trying to think of a reason. Maybe I forgot to do something? As the day progressed though nothing bad happened. In fact it was a good day mostly in the office. It just goes to show that depression is an evil beast seemingly striking with no reason.  I’ve been having a good week too. I won’t quite write off the week goal based on this incident but it definitely took a blow. I’m still having energy level problems and I’ve been planning on taking more exercise in the evenings and weekends.  Hopefully after a few weeks of that I’ll start to feel the benefits.  Also in a couple of weeks, Tyrion will have had his last injection and I can take him for walks too.  …
