The ups and downs have been mostly ups and the downs haven't been nearly as bad as I had feared. Life's better than it has been for a while. I've kicked a few bad habits and picked up a few good ones. I've lost weight. I've become a morning person, which intrigues me. I still don't enjoy domestic tasks, but now I do them instead of worrying about not doing them. I'm also consuming a lot less caffeine, despite not having had any desire to cut down.
I shall now return you to your regularly scheduled internet.
