the cycle continues

I slept well and for almost 11 hours last night. This morning I feel much better. No hangover from all the sleep, which tells me I needed it. The depressed mood continues to come in two day sags. There’s no discernible pattern I can pick on. Got to be the neurotransmitters doing their on thing, damn them.

Barring some sort of disaster befalling me, I should be able to practice (playing and singing) all day if I want. I’m coming to realize that my preferred way of learning to do something, which is a sort of brute-force, multitude of practice time approach, isn’t well suited for learning to sing. After a couple hours of practicing singing, my voice is tired. I can work on breathing and phrasing without without having to really push it, but I can’t just sing Wild World, all out, for eight hours straight. So, via the back door, I again have lots of time to devote to practicing the guitar, which lends itself perfectly to brute-force.

At any rate, it looks like I’ve weathered the storm. Can probably look forward to the next installment arriving Monday or Tuesday. By then I’ll be a little closer to my next doctor visit.

If you're interested in reading a fairly detailed account of addiction and depression, Cracked Head Memoirs might be for you. It basically tells how it was and what happened. Writing it helped me go from active addiction to recovery yet again.
