Happy Tuesday morning firsties, Gerbil Nation!

The thread pic reminds me of a SuperTramp album.

I’m driving down to El Centro this morning with my sister in-law to check on things at the apartments. Not the most exciting day, but something I need to do.

Y’all play nice now, y’hear?

Hey, GN!

Hai, Paddy and Sven!

Just got home from BK’s appointment. They told her was there were “positive changes” (which is good); they’ll probably schedule an MRI.

Think I’m gonna have a nap; been up since 04:00 and have had two nights of carptastic sleep.

Safe journeys to Paddy and SiL; hope there are no serious issues at/with the apartments.

Today’s thread pic reminded me of this old LP cover:

REO did some good stuff -- that double-live album is one I remember fondly.

Day by Day.

I read this very interesting article, I don’t remember where.

The author brought up the idea of clinical apathy, often getting misdiagnosed as depression. Evidently a completely different thing, brain chemistry wise. And anti-depressants and other treatments aimed at depression may make it worse.

I think this might be my problem. Because, regardless of my brain always thinking of new things, and also not being able to act on them very well… I would say I almost never feel depressed.

You can diagnose it by almost forcibly getting someone started doing one of the things they want to do. If they are Depressed, it won’t work, and they’ll stop doing it. But if they have clinical apathy, they’ll keep on with the task, even getting more into it as they work on it.

Kinda rung true, experientially.

I hope that knowledge is useful, Dv8.

El Centro was as out of the way and hot as usual. We had a good meeting with the on-site manager and the head of facilities and maintenance. Things are good, but there are always more things that need to be done than there is available time and money and also supply, as in supply chain issues.
