Goodbye again, karen

Your leaving today. I’ll miss you. If I could tell you one thing now it would be I am forever grateful that you came into my life and were a part of it for four years. Thank you for being you. I will love you forever. You taught me how to trust. You made me feel safe. You showed me there really are professionals out there who lov their job, who care about their patients, who do all they can to connect and engage with their patients. You showed me how it feels to be cared about and you showed me what its like to feel love for someone. I will always love you. And I will never forget you ever. I hope your new job brings you much happiness. You deserved that promotion. You earned it. Today is a sad day for me. I’m happy for you that you got this job but sad because your leaving my life. Your memory will live on in my heart forever. Good luck in everything you do going forward.

If the world could know just one thing about your mental illness

If the world could know just one thing about your diagnosis, what would you want people to know?

Poetry…she left me

i wanted to believe
you’d never hurt me
i tried so hard
but you broke my heart
you wrapped me in care
you showered me with false promises
then when it all got too much
you said no more
i cant work with you
was what you said
but you must not think its you
was what you said
it isnt you, it me
how could i think anything else
my heart was broken
once again
but you didnt see
how much your leaving
effected me


i would really appreciate if my readers would send prayers and positive vibes my way. my dad is going in to have a scan of his bowels today. i am nervous for him and feeling anxious about the outcome. we wont know the outcome for a few weeks could be anything up to two months. he doesnt see the gastroenterologist again until october. this scan is to look at both his upper and lower intestines. he has to drink a dye. i know what its called but i cant spell it lol. barium or something? anyway it takes 2 hours to complete the scan. i just hope its not bad news. would really appreciate any support.
