A stranger at the coffee shop called out good morning to me as I was going in. He looked like he recognized me, but I can't place him... It is always nice to start the morning with a friendly greeting and smile though.

It would be embarrassing if we actually worked together. I haven't bothered learning the names or getting to know anyone at work yet beyond my team. Will have to put in some effort on that.

Went to a party today which was nice, also managed to get some school supplies for fairly good price which includes a cute cactus calendar...I mean I already have a planner that I can reuse from last semester (and will use) but I feel like it'll be nice have it written down in more than one place. Going to try to work on meal prepping too so I have to find some recipes latter on. Which may be more fun than the cooking process itself but we shall see.

Made burrito bowls for meal prep this week and I'm really pleased with how they turned out. Rice, black beans, corn, chicken, and salsa I'm going to put on the side.

Had a decent sleep last night.

Had a fantastic morning. Went to see this new shrink and she's very nice. Prescribed me medication which I'm willing to try, if it's no good we'll try something else. So nice to have a bit of a support system again. Now I'll get a new psychologist as well.

Also had a lovely talk to the ladies in the pharmacy nearby - and I didn't get too crazy, which is always a relief.

Just got a 4wd 97 honda passport ex for $1000 and it's in great shape still. I think this is gonna help us get out more and do more things together. We've both been depressed lately, but life has actually started to improve for us both quite recently and looks like its continuing that way. Real solid financial stability seems to be headed our way.

It's pretty normal for someone to say "good morning" but glad you got excited by it. Learning names is my difficulty, I think it's a part of SA, maybe anxiety makes it more difficult to remember names. I used to be great with names when I was outgoing....i always say that... "when I was outgoing".

It isn't normal to speak to strangers here unless you know them or have a reason to... so when it happens, it definitely gives me pause. I definitely don't speak to people without reason (especially during the morning rush hour).

This isn't exactly a small town.

My day was a bit of a whirlwind but the nice people throughout the day made up for it.

Saw my new psychiatrist again today and I think she's going to be okay. Started Lithium a few hours ago and so far so good. Thank God because I was scared to try it for years.
