Giving up

I sit here
Darkness swallowing me up
Anxious thoughts
Tears fall
As I try to speak
No words come
I am numb
Numb and alone
I say a silent prayer
But who am I praying to?
I pray the feelings subside
I am unable to hold in the tears
Silently they fall
As my dog sits beside me
Looking at me
Nudging me with his soft warm nose
Oh how I hate
This dark night
I want to just give up
Give up this fight

Storm warning

A storm is coming to ireland tomorrow and friday. Hurricane lorrenzo!

We arent actually getting a hurricane, we’re getting the tale end of it, of what was hurricane lorrenzo which battered the atlantic.

We’ll have heavy rain and high winds. A status yellow weather warning is in effect from tomorrow evening at 6 PM until 3 AM on Friday morning.

Before 6 Pm it is going to rain heavily too I think. I wont be out in it as I am not going outside my front door tomorrow. I am staying put.

I hope our power doesnt go out. Thats what I am most nervous about. I hate when the electricity goes off.

Please keep me in your thoughts that I’ll get through it ok. I’m sure I will, but some prayers and good vibes would be nice. I’d appreciate them.


3 things challenge 1st October 2019

I wish I was a good actor, ian said wistfully. His mother stood at the sink, reading the label on the face mask she just bought. She wasnt really listening to Ian lamenting about his desire to be an actor, she was too busy studying the product to hear what he was saying.
Mom, Ian said, are you even listening?
Yes, dear, of course!
No your not! You never listen to me!
No, his mom said, I just pay for your acting lessons!
With that, she turned around and started busying herself putting her face mask on!


I must be doing something right!

I am finally on a good sleep schedule! I got a great nights sleep last night! I slept from 8 Pm until 4 AM! It was amazing! I feel so good having had that sleep!
I was exhausted because on Monday night I didn’t sleep a wink!
I am determined to keep this going! What I am going to do is go to bed each night at a decent hour, even if I don’t feel tired! I will try to sleep even when I think I cant!
Its got to work well I think it will!
What I am also going to do is not drink any caffeinated drinks after 6 PM!
My new med is working well! I am less anxious on it!

Today, remind yourself…

Today remind yourself that nothing is too good to be true. Your great hopes can be realized. Your most wonderful dreams can come true. All that you really need, you can have. An incredible goodness is operating on your behalf. If you are living a paltry life, resolve to stop it today. Expect great things to happen.
