Haven’t been writing much, have been focused on lots of other projects surrounding the selling of and packing up of Condo, websites and med adjustments.
Had a psych appointment this morning, only to show up to find a note from my therapist on her door saying she’s two depressed to see anyone right now. Yeah, I see a psychiatrist with depression. She has her downsides, but lots of upsides too. For one she really can relate to her depressed clients like me, for two she doesn’t treat me like a second class citizen like some Dr.s do. She’s not only been there, she often is there. When she is on, and I do see her, she’s very very good at what she does. It also gives me hope that as a chronically depressed person I may be able to get to a place where I can functionally work the majority of the time as she does. There is a school of thought that therapists should be free of psychological ‘stuff’ of their own, but I don’t buy that. As long as they can put their stuff aside to focus on you, thats what matters. If I had a psychiatrist who was dealing with cancer, or with a non-psychological chronic illness and occasionally couldn’t see me because of that, It wouldn’t be an issue, so why should it be an issue if it’s a mood disorder based illness? Depression is so largely biological, though comes often with so much personal stigma. Ah well.
After we saw my therapist we were going to go check out the huge children’s lottery prize home as it’s not super far from where she practices, unfortunately, it’s not open to view till noon. My appointment was at 10:30, for one hour, the prize home viewing opens at noon…. we would have come just at opening time, now we’re out front waiting for an hour, well, half an hour has passed, just half to go.
This lotto prize home is gorgeous, I’ve taken the virtual tour online…. would SO make an awesome kinky bed and breakfast. It also has a pool, hot tub, and every room has an ocean view… how great is that, we’ll probably pick up tickets while we are here.
My stuff on ebay has been doing pretty good, sold about 1500.$ so far, which is good, because we underestimated shipping costs which is going to ding us about 400$… my goal for the sale was 1000$, so even with the shipping we’ll have to pay over, I’ve still exceeded my goal, so I’m a happy camper. Have decided that when we settle down again after gypsy life, that I will likely do some weekly ebay sales. I think I could make a small amount of additional income that way. we’ll see, so many possibilities depending on what the future brings.
