traump came to ireland last week. i was so sick of hearing about him on our news. everything was trump this and trump that. like he’s some sorta god or something. he’s a fucking idiot. i cant stand him. he’s a baffoon. A clown. I hate his arogant ways. He’s so arogant. So damn full of himself. All you hear on our news is how the US wants to trade with ireland, at least that is what he was saying. He met our taoiseach, thats our leader of the country, his name is leo varadka or however you spell it. He also met our president. they all had a big dinner in trumps resort in county clare. He has a resort there. and they made a huge deal out of his sons going to the bar and buying a round of drinks for everyone in there. stupid fucking idiots the lot of them. he was only here two nights but you’d think it was a lot longer there was so much hullabaloo about it on our news. He played a round of golf at his resort. He should just stay away. We didnt want him here. there were lots of protests, lots of people hate him and didnt want him visiting our country at all.
what gets you really riled up?
Substitute those emotions
And you will
Live your best life
No doubt about it
We should all
Try to be
Sometimes it fails
Having those emotions
On most days
Is a great thing
I’ll take it
Even on my worst days
My most emotional days
Having a positive outlook
Is key to me
Being functional and that
is what keeps me
So the damn plumber never showed up today. I had doubts they would. And the electrician said that it was doubtful they would either. So when he said that I started to worry. But he was right. No plumber came. Now I am not sure if they’ll show up tomorrow morning either. I hope they will, but you just never know. The electrician didnt seem to think the work on my shower would be done tomorrow, he
said they rarely do work like that on Fridays. I hope he’s wrong. Either way, even if they do the work tomorrow, he has to come back to finish it off, and he wont be coming back until the middle of next week, which means, that I am without a shower for a few days. I guess I’ll be body washing in the sink, lol. Anyway its pretty disappointing that the plumbers never showed up today. I was waiting for them to come, I got all nervous hthinking they’d be here and wondering how I’d do with them being in my house. Its too late now for them to come, as they finish work at four PM and its now gone 5 PM. Oh well. I will hope for a better outcome tomorrow morning, wait and see, they’ll probably turn up at 8 AM when I am barely awake.
Well, I’ve walked myself into it now! I got a call this afternoon from a girl at irish guide dogs. She asked me if they can use photos of me and nitro, for a campaign they are doing, targeting taxi drivers, the campaign is for the transport authority, to let taxi drivers know that they cant refuse guide dogs, that its actually against the law for them to refuse a blind person and their dog!
I gave her permission to use my photo, but then I decided to tell her about my negative experiences with a taxi firm I use, how some drivers refuse to pick me up, and their excuse is that they dont want to deal with dog hair!
Hello? I brush my dog every day! But he still sheds! Its what dogs do for fuck sake.
Anyway, on hearing my story, she said to me, well, we’re actually looking for a negative experience from a service user, can I use yours?
So I guess my story is now being broadcast to hundreds of taxi drivers across the country! Talk about being a voice for change! If this doesnt change something, then I dont know what will!
I’m happy to help, though.

HERE IS WHAT MY THERAPIST EILEEN SAID, IN RESPONSE TO SOMETHING I WROTE HER ABOUT OUR ABUSERS AND ABOUT US CHANGING EMAIL ADDRESSES.
Thank you for the change of email address. I do hope things have settled down somewhat now that you are at your parents house. I get your anger and upset at missing the session and feeling of helplessness as to what actually happened. We will get to it on Monday. Breathe….
In the meantime have a good weekend, all will be well!
LOVE HER! SHE IS SO REASSURING!
