Californians really don’t think about earthquakes that much. Tremors occur every day, but most are too small to feel. The last one that Maurice and I felt was about two months ago. It threw us both up out of our chairs for a second but that was it. Not much. The only other one I felt like that was about 5 years ago. It lasted a bit longer, and shook more, but no damage.
Suddenly, though, earthquakes are on my mind. I don’t know why. I keep looking at the picture over our bed and thinking we need to reinforce it. We don’t have anything in the apartment reinforced like we should. Whenever I go out of the apartment and down the walkway to the stairs I imagine a quake happening and the walkway collapsing.
I don’t have a belief in psychic ability or true premonitions, but this has me thinking that I hope I’m not having one. I guess we’ll see.
Speaking of tremors, I’ve been having tremors the past couple of days. No specific reason, just the type that comes with generalized anxiety. I didn’t really notice until Maurice mentioned. Later I was trying to reattach a knob that fell off our fan and couldn’t hold my hand steady to do it. It’s what my pdoc and I refer to as the Mountain Dew effect.
I did come up with a fun idea yesterday. I’ve been posting these mental health cartoons on this blog and I’ve always wanted to be a cartoonist. So I decided why don’t I just start making my own and post those every day. Immediately I got excited and started writing up ideas. I don’t know when it will start happening but it will be coming.
Feeling depressed again today. I’m very bitchy and anxious and it showed in some emails I responded to (oops). I hope it’s cause I’m still adjusting to my new meds. There’s not much in the house so I planned to walk across the street to the supermarket. I just didn’t have it in me so I had peanut butter and jelly again. After my gourmet lunch I took a three hour nap. I’m still feeling out of it so I’m going to hit the bed again. I hope there’s not any major tremors while I’m in it. That picture over the bed is kind of heavy.
