What a month. I say that but there was not really that much going on. At least not…I can’t really describe it.
♣️ I got bad depressive episodes. Look, that’s not usually something I would talk about here. It’s not something I would talk about period. But in a way I have noticed that I don’t want to keep it all in either. Fact is that around here nobody talks about when they are feeling bad. I think that might still be because it has some stigma to it and technically it’s not really anybody’s business. On the other hand, I think it would be so much easier if people would just talk about it openly. Not in a “look-how-poor-I-am” kind of way, which also happens. You are valid if you have a happy and stable life. But it should also be okay if you are not well. At the moment I’m not well and I’ve started therapy for it, so I hope there will be improvement at some point in my future.
♣️ Austria went into another lockdown. Which seriously sucks so much, you can’t believe. It’s additional weight on my depression. I wish I could meet people. Not only some of my old friends but I also want to meet new people and make more connections. Face to face. But if anybody of you feels like talking, you can always send me a message on Twitter. Don’t hesitate, I’m here for you if you feel lonely. Okay?
♣️ I got myocarditis. Which is not fun. And also the reason why this wrap-up is so late. I’ve not been able to do much lately and even the way from the bedroom to the livingroom was very exhausting. I slept a lot. I should not do sports for the next six months which sucks because I have taken up biking which is good for my mental health and actually makes commuting to work so much faster. While I’m still not at 100% I’m feeling much better after a lot of rest and can even do stairs again. (Slowly and carefully but it’s progress.) So what I’m saying is: Take your health seriously.
♣️ I was so bored during my extended health break, so I bought 21 books and didn’t read a single one of them. Which is seriously so me.
♣️ I bought a refurbished iPad that never arrived. Which annoys me so much. Somebody has faked my signature and kept it, which makes it so much harder to get compensation and the company that sold it… I mean, the people on the phone are nice and I’m trying to be nice too because it’s not their fault but I’m seriously so frustrated.

I managed…two(?) reviews this month? Which is good. I’d say it’s good. It’s not one per week as hoped but I’m still glad.
I was on fire with new posts in November! I’m so proud! Come and take a look if you haven’t already!
