August 10, 2017:

Temporary absence from the world.

To-do list lengthens but can't be faced "right now".
Lack of energy resources consequent on lack of emotional stamina.

Bills, laundry, garbage, showering.
Turning up the thermostat.
Leaving the house.

Endless uncertain hours on the couch, watching movies, tinkering with television image settings.
Texting friends, not seeing them.

There's a woman whose gathering centrality to your life is the most important thing to not set aside.
It's tough to commit to dates when you don't know what day it is.

Lack of exercise.
Lack of proper food.

Feedback loop.
