Both yesterday and today, have found myself sitting here thinking "um okay, what do I do now?"

A good sign, but let's not read too much into it. Yesterday I was thinking that for hours, but was in fact unable to concentrate and focus and was overloaded and unable to screen out sounds and sights and all the rest. Eventually I got settled enough to think sensibly for a minute (thanks largely to 10B coming home and us having a debrief about how we both are), whereupon I decided to take some diazepam, after which I was able to focus (it's all a bit weird but it works). It enabled me to stop flapping round: instead I tidied some stuff off my chest of drawers, then 10B and I went to the supermarket and the library and all was right with the world.

Admittedly, once we got home from the supermarket, 10B did need to ask if I could please stop trying to clean the fridge and sit down for a bit because he could see what was coming if I did not. So I did stop, and that was okay.

Today I have found myself wondering what to do but I don't feel hyped and overloaded - this is a good sign. I feel both clear headed and physically okay. I have decided to do things that one does when one isn't too sick to do them, like hey, shower and get dressed! Then I'm going to put some clothes in the washing machine! And if I'm still feeling physically okay I'm going to walk to the post office and back.

And it being Thursday, I've reduced my prednisolone dose. I am now down to 15mgs.

Yay for progress. And yay for sensible stopping.
