Prayers neded

hi guys
if you pray can you please pray for my cousin, he’s a heroin addict and last night he was found unresponsive having overdosed on heroin.
he was rushed to hospital and the overdose was reversed. i am not sure how he’s doing now. a taxi driver found him on the street.
He is the cousin whose mom died of cancer a couple weeks back.

A poem contribution by DV

I’d like to introduce you all to my good friend and fellow blogger, DV. Her bio and one of her poems is below.
Please pop on over to her blog and connect say hi support her, she is an amazing person!

Bio
Im an Australian doctor, artist, writer and mother coming to terms with longstanding mental health problems resulting from complex trauma. I started my blog Dangerous Voyage last year because I was inspired by reading about other peoples journeys through therapy, and I wanted to speak out too and to connect with people who understood what I was going through in a way that friends and family and therapists did not. The caring and support that I have received from being part of the blogging community has been amazing.

My poem: Hope

Hope is a flower
on a distant tree
thick fleshy petals
soft and white
dont touch
touch leaves bruises
dirty and brown
starts the rot
withering decay
I copy the flower in stone
thinking it will be strong
but that fails too
a brittle shell
which crumbles to dust at a touch
dont touch
just look
hope is a flower
on someone elses tree.

When the storm hits, all you can do is ride it out

all i can do is ride the wave. and that, my friends is what ive been doing for the last two hours.
ive been reading, and texting, and binging on netflicks shows, and downloading media, anything and everything to keep busy…
because when im busy im not anxious, im not emotional, im not crazy…
im not a mess of insanity…
its going on for 6 AM. after countless cups of tea and coffee, and no sleep, its time to face another day.
question for you all my loyal and faithful readers…
if you had some words of wisdom for me right now. something that you’d tell me to do to ride out this wave and get through the storm, what would they be?

A busy few days

sorry i went quiet over the past few days. things have been crazy here. first on friday i had my did reassessment. i’ll write about that separately because i have a bit to say about it. then last night i went to a xmas party with my family. we went to see a michael buble tribute band and there was also a four course meal. it was great. i did not get home until 4 AM and spent most of today in bed recovering lol. i did not drink, but the night was exhausting. between eating, dancing, waiting for taxi’s home, yeah it was just full on. then when i did eventually get to bed i couldnt sleep for ages. eventually i did fall asleep and slept well had a few weird dreams though. overall i enjoyed the night out though as i hadnt been out in a while. alls good here though. thank you to those of you that emailed me privately to see how i was doing and check on me. i appreciate it very much. it means a lot to know people care when i dont write and they care enough to check and see how we are doing. so thanks guys.
