A darned good day!
Yes, I stayed depression-free and anxiety-free. I also slept all afternoon. But, when I woke up I cooked a linguine marinara with fresh prawns and mussels, and even made a salad. I have not cooked a whole meal and washed up for weeks now. That is a very good sign.
I went to the art store and replenished by paint supplies. Bob was away on site today. when he got home there I was happily priming a canvas. I have not painted for a couple of years now, well not on canvas anyway. Bob was impressed. Also relieved, I am sure, because he could go to work and enjoy being a blokey-bloke on site with blokey-bloke men all dressed in security fluoros instead of the usual boring professional office attire without worrying about crazy wife. (Bob is an electrical engineer, he designs knobs and levers and oil and gas flow meter thingies).
Last night I felt happy. I also felt excitement again. Online surrogacy friends in Australia, Trevor and Pete, just delivered their twin girls Evelyn and Gaia. They are Rotunda clients so they're at Hiranandani Hospital at present. They got on skype and messaged me shortly after the girls were born. How darned sweet to think of me. It gave me such a lift.
Bob and I are thinking July or August for our next trip to India. We still have to choose a clinic, and decide what to do about an ED. But that can happen later, I'm still investigating clinics in Chennai.
I am off to watch crap TV and paint (the canvas, not the walls).
