Checking in for 2023-08-16:

  • Woke up this morning to a phone call from AllianceRx (nee Walgreens). I have two scripts that are ready to be refilled, and I'm waiting on information for both of them. The Lonsurf script needs adjusting, and the Zarxio script (according to their site) needs me to wait a bit to refill because my insurance thinks I need more time before reordering. And yet they call me, insistent that I need to speak with someone about this. Not a great way to start the morning. I'm already frazzled enough as it is; adding more frazzle makes me frizzy.
  • Oh, yes. Apparently someone tried to break into my Apple account this morning. "Apple Account?" I hear you say. Yes, I have an Apple account. Two, actually; both from when I worked with Apple devices. So I spent some of my already frazzled morning deleting two accounts I didn't use because someone decided to jiggle the lock. Thank you, random someone, for reminding me to tidy up even the forgotten parts of my life.
  • I'm still struggling to get to bed at night. This seems weird because I should be tired, but my body has a hell of a time wanting to go to bed. Need to work on this.
  • I'm feeling pretty prickly this morning. I get intensely annoyed with folks calling me on the phone for things that I am trying to do on their website. I find the phone horribly inefficient, especially if someone is reading from a script. Seriously, I would love to normalize using email over the phone. But I understand that folks have lost control over their email inboxes so they prefer to use the phone. I understand it, but I don't like it.
  • Still finding it hard to get my projects underway. I'm feeling overwhelmed to the point where I don't even want to look at my lists anymore. I look at them and just want to instantly shut down. Thing is I'm used to seeing more on these lists so the number of items on these lists shouldn't be enough to blow my fuses. Yet, blown they are. My focus feels shot for some reason. I think I have a lot of things that are hanging out in my head and that's causing things to overwhelm me. Will explore this later with some journaling.

More as I know it.
