Chile…

Remember when we shut down in April, and people were rescheduling events for Sept/Oct/Nov… Well shit, Nov is just about over, December is pulling up, 2021 is on her way, and we’re in worse shape now! Who would have thought protecting ourselves and others would turn into a political issue, with people saying their rights are being violated for asking them to take precautions? United States, my ass. In the words of Kandi Burruss “this is crazy”.

Any-who! On my last personal update I believe I mentioned teeter-tottering between being fine and losing it. My psychiatrist had even suggested increasing my medication to help with my mood, which I did, and it helped. As of recently though, I’ve gone back to my previous dosage. Things have been cool overall. I’ve done little projects around the house, still have a few in the works. I’ve done a little bit of gathering with friends; we did outdoor dining, a picnic, a bbq, Top Golf, and we’ve gone bowling a few times. Even tried to date a little bit, but that fell flat (I did sign up for Match.com, so we’ll see).

With 2020 wrapping up and vaccines on the horizon, I am optimistic about 2021. I do feel like some things will forever be changed, so we’ll just adjust to our next new normal. For the remainder of this year, I want to focus on getting my eating habits and cooking skills together. I want to read more. I want to break away from social media a bit; already working on Facebook. And, I want to work on my friendships and communication.

One thought on “Chile…

  1. It’s very grim right now. I had several things postponed too from March and April. One event got postponed three times, and it’s now scheduled for July 2021. As for the vaccine, I’m wondering about potential side effects. Any medicine you take lists the side effects, but I haven’t heard anybody talking about the side effects for this COVID vaccine. That makes me kind of nervous. Hopefully they won’t be too bad. Finding home projects is one great way to help deal with anxiety. I’ve gotten into house plants lately. It gives me great joy caring for them and watching them grow. That calms my nerves. I have about a dozen or so. I’m glad you’re better and in a good place with your mood and did some socializing. I’ve been very paranoid about this virus, so I haven’t done much socializing at all. I only did one thing. Maybe I’m overreacting, but I feel safer when I stay home. The sacrifice now I think will be a good thing in the long run. With 2020 soon ending, I try to keep a positive outlook and look for a better 2021. Maybe I’ll be able to use these travel miles and hotel miles I have accumulated. I was just looking at the few trips I had planned that got cancelled this year. Bring on 2021 with new beginnings.
