So h bought a treadmill cuz he wants to start walking (where he can watch TV while he walks) so anyway we somehow managed to get the thing in the house yesterday, and today opened up the box and it took us several hours but it has now been assembled!! Yeesh. I broke it in and walked a mere 1/2 mile and now I am tired. I need to work back up to 2 miles a day....

So a colleague just texted me. A faculty member in the sciences—don’t know him, but heard the name often—died of COVID last week. He had been sick for months, since April. And why did he get sick? It may have been because science profs with lab courses were required to continue teaching on campus a few weeks after the rest of us were allowed to work remotely; he tested positive along with two students in his class.

I think the faculty may be getting out their (metaphorical) torches and pitchforks for the administration.

Okay yeah now I'm panicking about studying/being an attending and also sad about the fact that J just moved a 90 minute drive away until COVID is over (he made the decision not to renew his lease in the town where I live right before we met due to a work related thing) and regretting the fact that I didn't do a better job appreciating my month off.

I am panicked and sad and regretful.

Hugs, that all sounds really difficult...

I'm having uncontrollable twitching in my jaw muscle on the left side of my face. It's happened a couple of times before but it went away after a day so I didn't think anything of it. This is the second day in a row, and I'm taking muscle relaxants for a bum hip, so now I'm really worried. I'm going to call the psychiatrist on Monday even if it goes away tomorrow. I don't want it to become permanent.

I don't want to have to go off my antipsychotic med because my anxiety gets out of control and becomes pretty bad agitation. I tried going from 10 mg to 5 mg last summer and couldn't handle it so I don't know how I'll handle stopping it altogether.

That's just awful. Masks are prudent but not a 100% guarantee. I'm nervous to go back and the only reason I'm doing it is because I believe we'll be switching to all online within a few short weeks so my overall exposure will be brief.

ETA One of my graduate classes has already requested to be all online.

Poor little buggers crawled out of the nest and died (three of them). Sigh. Sometimes the cycle of life kinda sucks.

Aw that does suck. I've been through it with litters of feral kittens, and it never gets easier. And most of the time, I never could figure out what was wrong. My vet seemed to think that most times it was a genetic problem, so even if they'd lived, they'd likely be sickly and unable to survive as ferals.

Oof, yeah. My brain is *really* not wanting to study. In med school I did 8-10 hours/day on weekends... not sure why I can't even one good hour at a time now. I guess it's like anything else where your body/brain can get out of practice and you have to ease your way back in. (Apparently, studying is the *opposite* of riding a bike...)

Good news is that I took my roommate practice-driving yesterday around my apt at 7am (so there wouldn't be so many cars) and she actually did really well!
