My procedure last week went really well. I got my stent out and we’ve identified the root cause of the fluid buildup (portal vein thrombosis) and I have a bunch of doctor appointments to start tackling that. I had a paracentesis earlier this week and that’s given me some relief, but considering that my previous one was only 3 weeks ago, I have concerns about how long it will be until I start accumulating again.
But I’ve been doing a lot of reading and journaling and life’s been pretty good this week. I’ll take it.
- “It’s likely that many more workers have experienced burnout at some point in their lives. This isn’t a generational epidemic; it’s a societal one.“
- Larry Ray and the stolen kids of Sarah Lawrence. This is one of the most bizarre situations I have ever read about. Content warning: emotional and sexual abuse (the latter not in great detail).
- ‘Midwesterners have seen themselves as being in the center of everything.’ I found this interview to be fascinating. I lived in the Midwest from when I was 12 until I was 27 and generally say that I’m from there when people ask that question. I’ve added the book to my list and am hoping it won’t be as much of a disaster as the Rushkoff book has been.
