When it rains, it pours. Case in point…
That’s how I feel right now about the amount of rain we’re having! I know this is quite a different take on the question posed, but…rain! I mean guys, its almost May! It shouldn’t be raining so hard outside, we actually had a huge storm last night, and now its still pouring down outside! And I gotta go out in it, as I have to go to therapy!
Storms trigger us big time! We were so scared during the night, we didn’t sleep well at all, tossing and turning a lot. There wasn’t any thunder, just rain and high winds. But still we felt really scared, so we brought Nitro on the bed with us and snuggled up to him.
That felt so good. Felt so grounding. Snuggling him always helps!
Writing Prompt #15
I cant sleep. I took my meds hours ago. I thought the prazosin would knock me out. I only take 3 mg of it, but as I said I haven’t been consistently taking it, I just started back taking it tonight. So I really thought that when I did take it I’d be out like a light. No such luck though. I’m still wide awake. I feel agitated, and edgy. My mind is racing. My thoughts are whirling and spinning. I just feel restless. I cannot seem to slow down. It is an awful feeling. I just want to sleep! I know I’ll be exhausted in the morning if I only get an hour or two or three tonight. This morning I woke early…I woke at 6 AM. I got up for an hour, but then at 7 I went back to bed and I slept again until 9 when mom woke me for breakfast. After eating breakfast I went right back to bed for another hour. Last night was pretty similar to tonight in that I couldn’t go to sleep. I was up late, I didn’t go to bed until after 1 AM.

seaping from her eyes
down her cheeks they cascade
she’s in pain
not physical pain
its all emotional pain

she is ready to give up
give up this fight
