Gotta start somewhere… Nothing better than the classic Hello World (code monkey to the rescue!)
10 print “Hello World”
20 goto 10
30 win a million dollars
This is where the hard part comes in… trying to find something interesting to write about. I never seem to be able to find something to write about event hough I should be able to find a TON of material. I’ve lived an interesting life. I’ve served proudly in the USMC, I’ve spent the past 20 years in this Society for Creative Anachronism, I ride a motorcycle, I’m planning on moving to NZ in a 2 years (visiting next year), I’ve been to burning man and am going back again this year (40 days!!!!), I’ve been fighting depression and anxiety for a very short time (6 months to a year), I am married to my soul mate and have an amazing son. My life is pretty spectacular… so why cant I find a subject that interests me enough to write about?
Maybe because all I can think about is my muscles and how sore they are from my meds and how all I want to do is curl up and go to sleep. Not to escape but because thats really the only time my legs are comfortable. I think it has to do with the Lexipro that they added to my medication regime. Stretching helps a lot so I should really do more of that. But the side effects are soooo much easier to deal with than they were before the Lexipro because at least with the new meds I am generally happy
I recently went on a couple weeks of disability to try and get my anxiety under control and I think I was mostly successful. I was really glad to be back at work though. I do really enjoy my work and being at home for 3 weeks, while nice and relaxing, was harder than I thought it would be. I enjoy the camaraderie that exists here at my job. I enjoy being a productive member of a team. I think that this is what made it harder to deal with my depression because I didnt want to be friends with anyone and I was anything BUT productive. Things are much better now.
Not bad for a post that started out with nothing to say
