I have been having this problem lately that people misconstrue what I am saying. I am not certain if what I am saying is coming out wrong, or if people are just so rushed and frantic that they aren't listening to what I am ACTUALLY saying. If it is my misspoken words then that is cause for concern, because that can be a warning sign for a relapse with my mental health symptoms. I will watch and see if anything else pops up. If I catch it quickly enough I can head it off. But if it is just other people not listening then there is not much I can do about that. I have noticed that a lot of people don't listen very well. Maybe it is my quiet, introvert nature that makes me want to watch and listen, or maybe it is just my low stress lifestyle that allows me the time to take my time and really pay attention. I have caught myself drifting off during conversations a few times, but I really try not to, and refocus when I notice I'm drifting. Anybody else notice this kind of thing?
I walked Cooper for an hour this morning. We got about another 4 inches of fluffy snow last night, so he was hopping through drifts, and leaping over puddles of slush. It was a real workout for him. I am just glad I finally got a new coat and gloves.
