Just to be clear, this like most of the pictures I’ve used in this blog were taken years ago. This one in Bloody Scotland (crime writing festival), about 5 years ago.

Got out today, only a walk to a local store for essentials – including a bottle of wine.  Trust me, after the best of three weeks in the house, it felt like an essential. Mind you, I’ve got a glass of it at my side, turns out it’s not as nice as I remember.  But there again, I did dry January, got through most of February with only one evening of drinking, and haven’t drunk anything since my melt down a few days before I started this blog, when I drank two bottles straight – and much to my surprise and my husband’s annoyance, didn’t have a hangover.

So today, I have:

  • Taken my multivitamins, Brewer’s Yeast and iron
  • Taken a walk
  • Done a chore – vacuuming this time
  • Done about 16 pages of editing
  • Written 1800 words of my novel
  • Taken a bath
  • Listened to The Hairy Bikers Roadtrip CD
  • And worried about my family

This last isn’t symptomatic of anything other than I have family I care about, these are worrying time and I feel helpless. Not depressed helpless, just I know I am helpless, there really isn’t anything I can do to help them, much as I want to.

Anyway tonight I’m going to sit in my bed, write a little steampunk while listening to mostly 80s rock, and sip on a glass of wine. Not glamorous, but it gets me through. So for anyone out there, just keep on rocking.

A Month

Since being starting this blog, I have been taking vitamin supplements every day (though not as much of the Brewers Yeast as I should), and I am feeling better.  I’ve noticed a number of physical changes too.

Firstly, my skin has improved. I’ve been having lumps like acne, but not acne, all over my face, but that’s cleared up a lot, still there, but getting better.  Also my skin is actually less dry than it used to be too, mostly because I’m drinking a lot of water every day.

I’m not getting half of the headaches that I used to get.  Nor half the dry aching eyes. Yes, I’ve been in the computer less for the first couple of weeks, but that changed a few days ago because I need to get book four written.  So, I’ve been working it like I was a full-time writer. Getting up in the mornings and going to my desk and working seven hours (breaks allowed), but it’s been easier on my eyes. More natural light and no air conditioning.  Also having two hours less having to watch and concentrate on the road is helping a lot.

Finally, one bit of good news, after 30 days straight, my period is over! I was warned because of the medication I was on that long bleeding might happen, but I’m just glad it’s over.

The point is, I’m feeling a lot more positive now, and I’m reasonably sure that taking the supplements is working for me.
