I’ve been working on trying to get out of the house more. Stymied by lack of funds plus it is winter. Yes, I live in Arizona but we do have winter which means rain and gloomy days. And for me, highs in the 50s feels really cold and uncomfortable.
As I’ve mentioned before, I need to set down roots. It is vital for my mental health. I never managed that in the Bay Area. I am really trying to do so here. It’s a bit easier since I lived in this area for 6 years. Unfortunately, I’m in a different corner and have to learn my way around this part of town.
I’ve started a SF/F fan group here to mirror my group in Tucson. I plan to drive down to visit my friends in the Tucson group when I have the energy and funds. I am also in the process of reactivating the poly group. Not sure where any of these endeavours will lead but it’s the sort of work I find helpful.
I haven’t yet found a therapist. Doing so is on my agenda. As is getting my follow-up bloodwork to see if anything has improved (or worsened ~sigh).
I’m trying to do some nesting. I want to put things away. There are still boxes taking up one room of the house. I need a dresser, a couple of bookcases and storage shelves. I need to give Craigslist a look though I have no way to transport anything large in my Camry (my wolfcub’s truck wold not make the drive up here so that’s right out).
I am still engaging in what activism I can. Unfortunately, my Congresscritters are not inclined the way I am. But I make my voice heard. I am pulling back from social media a bit. Not reading as much or posting as much because it distresses me.
Thanks for reading.
