Wheeeee! Mood Swings!
Yesterday was a weird day. The past several weeks I've been hit by unusually strong depressive episodes, to the point where it was physically painful, and yesterday afternoon was one of the worst I've had yet. I did manage to pull myself out the tailspin eventually, but it wasn't easy and I didn't do it alone-- chatting online with graveyardgreg, a trip to my chiropractor Justy, and an awesome pizza dinner with laurie_robey all brought me back to the land of the living, which in turn gave me the strength to go on and have a fun night partying with the #TwitterPonies, including some I hadn't seen in months and sorely missed. So what started as one of the worst days ever, became a very good day by the end, and I'm grateful for that!
Discussing the depression w/ various folks (including Justy), one of the things that came up was the possibility that the blood pressure meds I'm on might be intensifying the depressive episodes (which were already being intensified by all the other crap going on that I've posted about here ad nauseam), thus creating a "straw broke the camel's back" scenario. It's certainly possible and something I plan to bring up w/ my primary doc in August. In the meantime, I will be going back onto the St. John's Wort, which was a big help during my last "crisis" period back in 2001-2002 and probably finding a new counselor.
I've still got a few of the June commissions hanging over my head. I had in mind to get at least two done this past week, but I kept crashing instead. D'Oh! This is why I rarely offer commissions: it's just really hard for me to get them done in a timely fashion.
Anyway, I'm going to see if I can bang out one or two this weekend, although the way stuff that ABSOLUTELY NEEDS TO BE DONE tends to jump up in my face on the weekend, I'm dubious of that too. I'll give it my best shot, tho! If I still owe you a commish, keep watching this space. :)
I have officially decided that I want to avoid hearing about season three as much as possible. Season two has made me twitchy, and what little I've heard about season three has made me just as twitchy if not moreso. I'll watch the episodes when they come, but in the meantime I'm going to stick my fingers in my ears and go "LA LA LA I'M NOT LISTENING!"
As I posted yesterday, I'm contemplating joining Webcomics.com in order to try and get a little more into the "community," such as it is. I've been feeling very out of touch lately, like even moreso than usual, and I want to get back into the swing of things. I'm also looking at SoFurry, but I'm not sold so far. What's the difference between it and FurAffinity? Apparently it's not filtering out content (at least based on their declaration "all types of furry creativity are precious"), which to me just means it's full of all the same "refrigerator porn" that makes FA so irritating. I'm guessing it was created in response to some other schism of which I'm unaware ("FA totally doesn't let us post fursuit pictures, man!") and have no particular interest in.
I think that's it for now, so I'll catcha later! Got a lot to do, and time is always running away. Have an awesome day!
