…can be quite a nightmare. All variables are similar to what they were yesterday. Yet, I am very stressed today. Considering everyone’s expectations is not something I handle well. I shall mark this is as a red dot on the calendar, to track a pattern of when I convince myself I am depressed. One key event being my spending better part of the day wrapped in blankets in my bed.

Fortunately B has a lot of patience and tends to leave me alone – which is a double-edged sword really. I want the attention but I want to be left alone as well.

I lament often, “I should have been born a man. Life would have been simpler.”
