3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
After last week's "failure to launch" I was kinda nervous about this week's encounter. At the back of my mind was the fear that maybe the magic blue tablets would no longer work on me. As it turned out however, last week's summation was absolutely correct - this week I took one on an empty stomach 90 minutes before supper, then a second tablet just before supper. Three hours later when Missus arrived in the bedroom, there were no problems!
I subsequently had the reverse problem. A demanding boner at 03:30, an indication that I need a wee, was no less demanding after the wee. I already know full-well that to indulge these early morning boners takes up to an hour to satisfy. Leaving it until after Missus has gone to work is the wise move as things then take the standard 10-15 minutes. This morning, I didn't make the wise move!
Somewhat to my surprise, though things did last the best part of an hour, I enjoyed it immensely! A combination of my own duvet and the deep unconsciousness induced by olanzapine means that Missus is always blissfully ignorant of the autoerotic shenanigans going on a few inches away. Of course now I have a large sleep debt to pay off and the job of changing the bed as my side is now decidedly damp with sweat.
Detaching myself from my character, observing the effect of ageing is oddly fascinating. The effects I've noticed so far are:
1. Erectile dysfunction
3. Muscles "pull" easily if jerked
4. Automatic tasks (ie those done without thinking) are increasingly unreliable - I forget to do stuff I would do subconsciously, like making sure I've got all my stuff on me and routine daily tasks like packing Missus lunch, and buying items we get every week. I'm going to have start writing stuff down!
5. Name dropouts - I forget the names of people and things I've known for years! They usually return, but after I wanted to recall them!
The discipline of acceptance, letting go of stuff, is now particularly important to prevent suffering and distress!
4. TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
