Daily Journal – Jul 21, 2017

This is my 108th journal.

It’s my last day of work. Next Monday, there will be a farewell dinner. After that, for the remaining week, I will be mostly free except for some medical appointments that I have with NUH.

For work today, it was mainly me focusing on handing over stuff, updating documents, etc. I left the office at around 1800hrs after I returned the company’s key and access card for the customer’s office.

I do have some other stuffs that I need to do tomorrow, and so for the night I shall to catch up on some of the TV series that I haven’t watch due to work and my priority of playing Cities: Skylines.

I do have something that I would like to share but I will need to plan out how to share it. I will probably prepare it a separate journal entry.

Lastly, I just want to note that despite without any medication, I was able to manage my bipolar disorder. If you have been reading my journals, you would have known that I have been doing long distance runs. These runs help to prevent me from slipping into depression. They raise the Serotonin levels in my brain. But let’s not forget that I score very high on neuroticism. A moderate to strong stressor (especially one that I have never dealt with before in my life) will cause me to go into depression again. For the past few days, I have swung from happy to depressed state several times, and was using caffeine to stay neutral or slightly happy.

Here I conclude my journal for today.
