Nightly Routine: Medication

I take my medication at night. Its part of my routine. I open the glass cabinet door and I take a deep breath. I start from the far right of the shelf and I work my way down.  One pill onto the next.  Take two then a sip of water.  Another two, then another sip… Continue reading Nightly Routine: Medication

Bella’s Babbles: Friday Edition 2/15/19

The day is nearly over and I have yet to write my weekly babble, golly gee bob willigers, what is going on?  I took the day as a personal day and have done very little work today.  The family had a few appointments today and with the way they were spaced out it made sense… Continue reading Bella’s Babbles: Friday Edition 2/15/19

Bootstraps

I bee-bop through life trying to deal with the things that come up.  I try and act like ordinary things do not bother me, that they are just no big deal, that I am able to dismiss them and move forward.  However, that is a bit of a lie.  I hold onto these things like… Continue reading Bootstraps

Living in the Rearview Mirror

I commute for my job.  It’s usually between a half hour to an hour, depending on time of day and the amount of traffic.  Not a big deal, right?  Well, it really isn’t a big deal, but when you have a history of panic attacks while driving, every minute you are in the car can… Continue reading Living in the Rearview Mirror
