Burnout

I've been fighting it for a while. Since 2018, honestly. I've been putting off dealing with it. I kept telling myself that once I started my medication, it would get better. It did get better, for a while. But it didn't get enough better for me to sustain my current commitments and schedule. In the… Continue reading Burnout

The clowder has been largely well behaved of later, though even weirder than usual. Bast likes to sleep in the bottom drawers of my dresser, but the other day he decided to use the top drawer instead.

Check in, with Cats

I hop you are all staying well. So far, despite essentially being at Ground Zero, we are okay. Ash and I have been isolating as much as possible, but we are still both expected to go into work for the time being.
