When there are no babbles

The below was composed yesterday, but inadvertently not posted.  Babbles HAVE returned, but slowly and not so gracefully. Yesterday I was struggling to write.  I was overcome with emotions and thoughts.  However, when it came to placing them on paper, it just wasn’t working.  I was off, just not in the right place to write. … Continue reading When there are no babbles

Feeling Blue

There are times in life when I am sad.  It’s usually when there is a lot of trivial things mixed in with a couple of big things that leave me asking myself why.  Why do certain things happen?

When Anxiety Attacks

I am stable.  My mood has been even.  I am neither high nor low, depressed nor manic.  It is such a gift.  It has enabled me to accomplish much over the last 6 or 7 weeks.  I am thrilled to be in this place of stability. However, life is not all hunky doory.  I have… Continue reading When Anxiety Attacks
