I have written you only once since January 2019, and that was back in March of this year to discuss academic changes that I was in the process of making. There have been a LOT of other changes since post #610. This is going to be a hastily thrown together post that’s essentially a collection… Read More #612 – New Website, New Me
So hey there, how are you doing? Been a while, hasn’t it? I have over two months to catch you up on, and that has been a hectic time. My apologies for disappearing, but there have been reasons. The last time I wrote to you, I was just getting ready to start the spring semester… Read More #604 – Been a While, Hasn’t It?
This will be my last post this year. I am packing for a flight to Orlando to spend some time with my wife’s family for a few days. We leave very, very early in the morning so tonight’s post is going to be short, but important. One of my first posts of 2017 was on… Read More #602 – Goodbye 2017!
Today is my second birthday. I turn seventeen. You might be asking yourself what I mean. (And you might be going “really?” but I wouldn’t blame you if you are.) Today is a very special anniversary for me. Seventeen years ago today, I quit smoking. There are some of you out there whose earliest memories… Read More My Second Birthday
Today I set an appointment with Austin Community College’s Student Accessibility Services office to discuss my disability and what they can do for me, if anything. The perceived stress of school might be enough to trigger a notable setback in my progress. I’m hoping not, but I’ve noticed that really stressful times tend to be… Read More And There’s More
Today is therapy day, and since I don’t remember all the progress that I’ve made over the last two weeks, I figured it would be prudent to summarize everything in a single place rather than looking through two weeks of blog posts during my session to grab the highlights. For those new to the blog,… Read More A List of Accomplishments
Today we had planned to go to the store together, and then to do our radio show in the evening, and do a lot of goofing off around that. But instead my wife got called into work for seven and a half hours, which put everything else on hold. So I decided to take up… Read More Seems Like a Simple Thing
Yesterday I wrote about my discussion about school with my therapist, and mentioned that she wanted me to contact my Texas Workforce Commission case manager regarding changing my action plan with them. Here’s why. Late last year, I began working with TWC on a plan to get me back to work. They could either give me… Read More A Potential Change of Plans
I’m going back to school in the fall for Medical Billing and Coding, and today was my orientation at Austin Community College. It was a good session, but short, and likely would have been shorter had there not been a couple of obstacles in the way. When my adviser brought me back, she took my… Read More Back to School
I had my first follow-up appointment with my new psychiatrist this afternoon. He asked how things were going, and I told him about the event on Saturday – how I didn’t have panic attacks beforehand like I’ve been doing recently, and how I handled the minor panic attack at the event. He said that it… Read More Steady As She Goes
