…. it’s been that kind of day. CW: illness, blood, inadvertent self-harm . I’ve grown more klutzy as I get older. This morning started, first thing, even before I got out of bed, with me opening an inch-long gash on my elbow bone courtesy of a laptop I’d left at my bedside.

But today it hit me how bad it still is, vs my miniscule effort,Continue reading “Day 40, with Overwhelm”
