Some updates

Humira: Gave myself my first shot on Tuesday. It wasn't as bad as I thought it might be; basically it's akin to an allergy shot that has the needle stay in the skin about twice as long. I got some post-injection fatigue that day and the next, but it went away. I had a very bad pain day on Thursday, set off by two hours of my worst trigger, shopping (something about standing and sorting through racks of stuff just kills my back), but on the upside I got a new dress. The next day I skated for two hours and then walked the dog with no increase over my normal background pain level, so...improvement? Today's been about the same.

Yuletide: BEARS. I know what I want to write but am having trouble getting words on the page.

Skating: Right back inside three turns: UNLOCKED! (Let us not speak of left back inside three turns.) I'm getting more revolutions in forward camel spins, sometimes up to four, and getting better at sitting lower in camel-sit spins. Layback spins exist for a couple of revolutions, albeit I don't know that I'll ever be brave enough to really arch my back and lean my head back.

I asked BF for a lesson on back spins and loop jumps this week, which should be exciting. P and J the elder both say he'll have great tricks to get me to actually do not-awful versions of these elements.

TV: It's been aaaages since I watched any television. Since Agent Carter finished in March, I think it was. I guess The Librarians is coming back next month, but other than that I got bupkis. Is there anything worth watching on these days? I haven't kept up. Since fandom left LJ/DW and I didn't really follow to Tumblr or Imzy, I've been out of the loop.

Thanks for the recs! The Good Place sounds like it could be fun. I kept catching the tail end of Lucifer before X-Files last year...might be time to try it.

Welcome to the self-injection club?

I hope it works well and the pain goes away!

Welcome to the self-injection club?

Hooray? Not a club I wanted to join...

Current shows I really love: The Americans, Bob's Burgers, Transparent, The Man in the High Castle.

Thanks for the recs. I gave up on The Americans sometime in I think the second season, despite liking it at first, because I was tired of what felt like neverending sex scenes between the two main characters and their dupes of the week (or that woman the husband was leading on for her FBI secrets). I haven't tried the rest of them, though--I'll look them up.
