I have a weird cold and between that and dealing with depression I didn’t feel like picking up the camera for a few days, thus the break in the visual journal entries. I was home sick from work Wednesday and Friday. I felt better Thursday and Saturday, so it is like this virus fools me into thinking I’m about over it, I get up and out and start feeling better, then it wakes me up at 4 a.m. yelling “Fooled ya!” I really need to get some exercise and sunshine to help with my depression, but this damned virus is determined to keep me in the hole.


This is what my bed looked like at 4:30 a.m.

I think that I’ll make a doctor appointment to look at changing or moving off my medication, although I’m always afraid that she’ll make me go to a psychiatrist, and I can’t afford that. If she does, I’ll just switch to a different general practitioner. Art retreats are my therapy, and I do have several lined up for the year ahead. Plus exercise, sunshine, and some socialization will help.

Anyway, I may go over to Susanne’s as planned to do a little marbling. I’ve been looking forward to it.
