Therapy Musings

Yesterday I had physical therapy again. I really love the journey there, which follows the Bay for a while. I know, I know, I’ve written frequently that the color of the water changes often, defending on the season, weather, time of day, etc., but… Continue Reading “Therapy Musings”

Twice An Idiot

I feel like an idiot today. Twice an idiot. An idiot times two. I was triggered and had a bit of a meltdown. I don’t know if you know much about triggers. The concept of “triggers” has kind of lost its real meaning these… Continue Reading “Twice An Idiot”

Voices of the Victims

I am such a horrible, terrible person! I am bowing my head in absolute shame. Yesterday afternoon I went out to the coop to gather eggs. The ducks met me, quacking loudly in complaint. That’s when I noticed that I had forgotten to feed… Continue Reading “Voices of the Victims”

Transitioning

Yikes! I can’t believe that I haven’t written since January 29th! I have a lot of catching up to do. Mostly I didn’t write because I was very tired. I don’t think that I’ve had a good night’s sleep for more than a year.… Continue Reading “Transitioning”

Rebuilding

I’m feeling better…the attacks of anxiety seem to be finally lessening somewhat. I think the loving support of so many friends helped. One reason I share my struggles with abuse and anxiety is that so many struggle alone as I did for so many… Continue Reading “Rebuilding”

An Angry Sea

I haven’t written in a couple of weeks because I have been struggling with severe anxiety attacks. It’s really awful. I feel as if anxiety is rushing through my veins. I can’t breathe, my stomach is in knots, I feel nauseous. Everything feels overwhelming.… Continue Reading “An Angry Sea”

Fangorn Forest

Today was Memorial Day in the USA. It is a day to honor fallen soldiers. We always really enjoyed the Memorial Day celebrations in the little village we used to live in. They had one of the best, most honoring, Memorial Day celebrations I… Continue Reading “Fangorn Forest”

Battles

We’ve had a rough couple of days. I have struggled to write about it. I often need to pour out my strong thoughts or feelings into writing in order to process them. So I wrote about it, posted it, and then decided that it… Continue Reading “Battles”

Neighbors

This morning I was very startled to see an unfamiliar car coming up the driveway. Just about the only people who drive up to the house is the UPS, FedEx, or USPS people with the occasional package for us–and this wasn’t them. Instead, it… Continue Reading “Neighbors”

Spiders and Trees

Yesterday I bought some spider spray so I’d be armed if I encountered anymore giant spiders. They really do scare me, and I found my “spider senses” are tingling with alertness. I especially scan the front porch when Danny wants out at night because… Continue Reading “Spiders and Trees”

A Minute in My Mind

There are some memes that appear on my Facebook timeline now and then that I really hate because although they can seem true, and may be somewhat true in some circumstances, I think they are mostly just blarney, especially if you think about them… Continue Reading “A Minute in My Mind”

A Crazy Day in Michigan

When I wrote the other day about soon needing to exchange jackets for winter coats, I didn’t expect it to occur so quickly. Meteorologists are forecasting snow for our area this weekend, although I don’t think it’s going to be measurable. Meanwhile, today’s weather… Continue Reading “A Crazy Day in Michigan”

Aftermath

Last night JJ returned home from work in a very happy mood. “I love living up here. I really like my job!” he exclaimed. He says his co-workers are all extremely nice and friendly and helpful. Also, at a meeting that day he had… Continue Reading “Aftermath”

We’re Living, Living, Living in Northern Michigan

It began to rain last night and it has been raining off and on all day. I love how rain makes our forest appear wrapped in mist. The various weather changes the appearance of our forest from day to day–and even hour by hour.… Continue Reading “We’re Living, Living, Living in Northern Michigan”

Van Gogh in the Elevator

I had an eye exam on Monday. I was excited because it’s been a few years since my last eye exam, and a year or two ago my glasses got a small scratch on them which makes them hard to clean. No matter how… Continue Reading “Van Gogh in the Elevator”
