I said in my last post that I mainly sat in my recliner. I also never turned the television on all the time I was alone. Tonight, the television is on and I am more agitated. And the usual political programming was on most of the daylight hours. I slept most of the afternoon.
I have also said before that I believed I would do better in a more controlled environment like assisted living or a memory care facility.
That being said, I do OK when my Wife is with me and we consciencely control my environment. So, a move to assisted living can wait. But, the weekend experiment did illuminate how television influences my agitation and anger. The constant bombardment of violence, political dribble, and extra loud commercials, is not good for me!
I thrive on quiet, calm, and routine. That was reinforced the weekend.
