Sick Again

Bob is home sick this morning.  He went to the doctor yesterday and they diagnosed him with a sinus infection and early bronchitis.  So he is recuperating at home and trying to feel better.  I still had a slight cough yesterday  but I didn’t cough hardly any last night, so maybe  I am It done with mine.

I think I am going to write a full essay about my “graduation” from therapy and maybe use it as the closing for my thesis.   It seems like a good place to talk about laying things to rest and unlocking things to help me in my recovery. Summing up my illness journey, etc.  Unless I relapse somehow in some major way.  But I don’t see that happening right now.  I feel like I have good coping skills now and will be able to handle damaging thoughts better and will be more proactive about handling them with my therapist  rather than letting them spin out of control.

I am going to make a serious effort to stay awake this morning.  It won’t be easy, but I’m going to work at it.  I may just write all morning.  That sounds like fun.  Let’s see what I can do.

Happy Wednesday.
