Yesterday was a fairly frustrating day at work - I felt like maybe one hour was actually productive and the rest was trying to look busy - I hate days like that. I walked to the station and back, and added on a bit more walking since I had a doctor's appointment after work. For months now when I request a refill of my prescription for the antidepressants they only ever gave me a months supply. It's not a dangerous drug and I don't think it would make me any money on the black market - personally I think it's because we don't pay for prescriptions in Wales and they don't want to risk giving out unnecessary drugs that will end up getting binned if people stop taking them. But my horrendous July has convinced me that I'm not in that place and may never be - so I went to talk to the doctor about getting things simplified so I don't always have to go to the clinic. It's a 20 minute walk from my house, but working full time in Cardiff, with a commute that takes between 1 hour and an hour and a half each way, makes that a lot less convenient than it sounds. Anyway, he agreed to a batch repeat approach so hopefully that will make things easier. It sounds silly but I've actually been getting quite stressed and anxious every time in case something happened to stop me collecting it on time. Not really surprising given that I was diagnosed with anxiety as well as depression.
Yesterday's weather was much better than the forecast said it would be - we were forecast unending heavy rain but in the end not only was it mostly dry, it was even sunny - while still being much cooler than the weekend. Lovely! And although it was drizzling this morning in Cardiff there was a beautiful rainbow to get the day started off well. Add in a delicious free latte from a local coffee shop and so far my Thursday is good!
