Well, I've gotten a light box. In my counselor's experience, doctors have just recommended "getting a light box," not specified the perfect light box or the perfect schedule. So I went ahead and purchased one. And I'm really really hoping it helps. So far, it is really bright when it is on, but seems to help me feel more awake. Which is nice.
I practiced with two others from my church at church yesterday to get ready for music this Sunday. And guess what? I felt... safe. I actually enjoyed it. I enjoyed making music with other people. I enjoyed feeling like a valued part of a team. The experience was lovely.
As for school, I've come across a bit of trouble. I suppose it could be described as my usual trouble at about this point in the semester. This is the point, just after the last day to withdraw and get a W on your transcript, where I have trouble caring about my classes. Acoustics of speech? Not interesting enough. Intro to Audiology? Later. This would be one of the moments when I have to fight myself to do schoolwork. Actually, I've settled for downloading the lecture to listen to later. It, well, sort of counts, right? It would probably work faster if the internet was working better.
So I guess in summary, I'm slogging along. I work, and that has been stressful, but I've been able to do it. It is after I leave work that I find myself tired and unmotivated etc. Kind of like when I was working too much earlier this fall, but now I'm back to my preferred schedule at work, so I plan to keep that.
