My parents bought me a new refrigerator. It arrived today. All big and shiny! They're sort of spending money now while they can see it enjoyed rather than waiting for when they die. Morbid but sweet!

Fridges in the UK generally aren't that big, but they have started selling these huge 'American Style' ones. So imagining one of those.

Mine used to do the same. Enjoy it. You are really making them happy by accepting it. And a new fridge is always welcome, isn't it?

Ugh Monday. January is such a tough time. It's so long, and there's so little light. I hate wishing time away, but January and February feel like punishments or purgatory, just to endure.

I did a short run with my support worker this morning, Jeff. It's dawning on me I'll have to diet as well to get some off the bulk off. Having a heavy cold hindered me more than I had expected. Overall pleased with the buzz I got afterwards.

Jeff M

Good job! I definitely notice how extra weight makes running more difficult (still trying to lose a few holiday pounds). And not breathing well makes it much harder. But great job pushing through!

Lydia R

Yes, well done both of you. I'm just sitting on my behind all day. :)

John T

I'm about 5 stone heavier than I want to be, so it's definitely sensible. I dropped the weight before (on less sedative medication), I reckon I can do it again.

Ran in the cold last night with some good people. Felt pretty good about things, but then horrible night's sleep, dog got sick, bitter cold day - mood dipped again.
Jeff M

Parents coming up this weekend. Don't really want them here. Will have to hear about how messy the house is and how it's so bad the dog ruined my blinds and things... just don't know if I can handle all that.

Jeff M

But I should be thankful. At least they care and want to be around me. Otherwise I'd always be alone. Just ... it will be a stressful weekend in different ways I guess, and then more work to not look forward to. Ugh.

Off work today, still got up early. Cold and sad. Melancholy, I guess. Lonely for sure. Trying to face the year more positively, but feel like I'm failing lately. Or just having to struggle more.
Jeff M
15 Jan 2018 ·

Watching a TV show, a comedy, where a friend is getting a divorce and he confides that he just wants a hug. That hit me, because sometimes that's all I want, a good hug... Or someone to sit across from and talk to, someone who will...

Jeff M
15 Jan 2018 ·

...actually look at me and listen to me and respond meaningfully. Life shouldn't be just about distractions, but I feel like that's all it is... keeping yourself distracted so you don't dwell on the negatives. But that distracts you from the...

Jeff M

Pretty similar for me. Distractions is all I'm seeking at the moment, but it won't make my problems go away. Bit stuck there though. A few days ago I saw something similar about wanting a hug on TV and it almost made me cry and scream 'me too!'.

Yesterday was better. Got stuff done at work. Took advantage of warm weather to run 7.5 miles in the rain. Snow is mostly gone, but a foot expected tonight. Beer/food thing tonight should be fun.

Plus, I have Monday off! And other than tonight's thing, virtually no plans. Want to go outside and run trails, but snow will make that nearly impossible, so probably more treadmill and Netflix. Ugh.

I have some friends who ran outside today. Amazing...I miss running outside, but the cold is dangerous! And the footing is so bad, it's hard to run! Like running on wet sand or mud. Not much fun. :(

Bitter, dangerous cold (-20 to -30F wind chill) today and tomorrow. Snow makes it much worse, because salt won't work on the roads, and shoveling is horrid. Working at home this morning, but...
