That certainly offered perspective, Donuel. The reason there is a crisis in the lack of available therapists is because they are in such great demand right now. I can get a few sessions through my employee assistance program, and may, if I can make an appointment with the woman I usually speak to. I use those appointments as a sort of "tune up," to see if everything is more or less running as it should. The depression I have experienced has been situational - and as things improve, so does the mood.

I have a surprise out-of-town guest arriving on Wednesday and staying for several days, whose family here locally is having health issues (pity the daughter with allergies to the point that she developed bronchitis and an asthmatic reaction needing treatments.) She'll stay here instead of with that daughter. I warned her about my upcoming tour - she will join, but she will behave like a member of the general public, she won't put her her "adopted mother" hat she likes to wear around some of us.

I really do need to go ahead and set up a RING doorbell. People have been trying to get my attention for a couple of days and banging on the outer security door just doesn't work. I can't tell which door if I'm at the back of the house (two of them have security doors) and don't get out front in time. The friend has gone out to reconnoiter the new roof and check his mail, the side door is unlocked so he doesn't have to bang or try texting to get my attention. It's not like the house is that large, but I'm just not always near a door when someone is on the other side of it. I've had various types of bells, but anything that is exposed to the heat and has batteries cooks pretty quickly around here. The RING is wired, so might survive a little better.
