October 3rd, 2017



I woke up in the morning to the sound of the rain pattering against my window. It’s been raining a lot lately.

I was awake before my alarm clock rang in the morning. I got up, took my meds, dressed up, and made myself as pretty as I could.

I logged in to the online bank service, I had received money.

I went to the psychiatric center, I had an appointment there for an interview for the mindfulness group. The occupational therapist arrived to the reception right at the same time with me.
she asked me a few questions, and I started spacing out and travelled to the time in my first high school, when I had a Swedish exam. Geez.

After the interview, I went to the grocery shop and bought some snacks. Then I went to Hennes & Mauritz and bought a new necklace.

I travelled to downtown Helsinki on a bus, but it got stuck in the traffic so I got off and walked. I visited a thrift store and was happy to see that they had a vintage section.

I took another bus to the city center, and walked all the way to another thrift store where I bought a nightshirt I can take along when I go visit my granny.

I travelled back to Hometown and went to the supermarket, I bought a week’s worth of groceries and then I went back home.

I was so tired and my body felt heavy, so I decided to take a nap. I decided not to go to the Late Winds youth group or the Ore City library knitting group.
It’s been a long time since I last took a nap.

I woke up at half past six o’clock in the evening, and washed a load of laundry and went to the shopping mall for one last time. I had a good time there.

Once back home, I felt a bit sad because I haven’t managed to take good care of myself recently; it’s been a long time since I went to the gym, or brushed my teeth.
I got an inspiration; right after hanging my clothes on the drying rack, I took a shower and cleaned my teeth.
I felt so good after that.
