I had set my alarm clock to ring at ten o’clock in the morning so I would get up in time; the appointment was supposed to be at noon, and I was thinking about taking the bus 39.
I had a dream where I was studying in college, fortunately my ever- so- trustworthy alarm clock woke me up because it was a miserable dream.
I got up, took my morning medicine, washed the crusty sleep off my eyes, and then put on my new dress; a button- up A- line dress made of bright orange terrycloth, with a suit collar. I put a tight black blouse and black stockings under it.
I took the bus 39 to Kamppi, the bus travelled past Pikku Huopalahti. I was thinking of visiting the park nearby, there are gorgeous sculptures. I just need to find out where exactly, so I can go there.
Once in my therapist’s office, I learned that today’s appointment was a regular 45 minutes of talking about my problems and that I didn’t need to fill out any forms.
After the appointment, I visited the thrift shops on Freda and Iso- Roba to see if there were any cute clothes for me to buy. I didn’t find decent clothes, but I found a knitted bedcover and some blankets with cute 70’s retro design that would look dashing in my home. I am going to buy them soon.
It was a real chore walking to the tram stop, it rained snow right into my face, I almost slipped and fell over, and I was freezing. At times like this I wish global warming would stop the snowfall, at least in Finland.
I took the P train to Myyrmäki, once back home I brushed my teeth and did some odd jobs before calling the pharmacy and asking how much do I have to pay for a new batch of anti- psychotic medicine. I was told it’s 331 euros. There’s no way in heaven or hell that me or my mom are going to afford that, so I guess I have to go to the social office to ask for a coupon.
Let’s see; that means I have to print an account statement from the last three months, and take a copy of the prescription form and the special permission for using a prescription antimedicine that isn’t yet allowed in Finland, and some sort of a statement about how much the medicine is going to cost. And I also need to fill out the application for income support, wait for a few hours, and hope that my social worker has had her morning coffee so she will be favourable.
I decided to go visit my mom, I called her and talked to her for a while. She said that I sound unhappy. I told her I am coming over to visit her.
I caught the bus 574 to Raappavuori, once in my parents’ home I drank coffee and watched the BBC Sherlock Xmas special The Abominable Bride that my mother had saved for me.
Later the day I decided to go to the hobby group in Myöhätuuli, mom was on her way to Varisto so we took the same bus.
In Myöhätuuli, the others were watching a Neo-Nazi- themed movie American History X. I didn’t know why they had picked such a morbid film, and watching it triggered me a bit so I went to another room to write into my diary.
I drank a cup of cocoa, and another cup of coffee, and ate some popcorn. Then I decided to leave.
I took the bus 311 to Myyrmäki, went to the Myyrmanni shopping center to hang around for a while, and then headed home.
I watched an episode of Doctor Who, the one with the eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond. I really enjoyed it, I guess I am warming up to the eleventh Doctor, even if I have an unholy love for the tenth Doctor.
