finishing my book (via Writing)

finishing my book (via Writing)

Still keepin on…

So, these last few weeks have been really rough. My mental health problems along with my dad’s physical health problems had me running from reality and any sign of uncomfortable feelings. I wasn’t writing, or blogging, and I slept A LOT. I kept missing my meds which would only make me feel worse, physically and emotionally. It took quite a while to get my head back in the game.

Now that it is, I wish I could say that this won’t happen again, but I am sure it will. I don’t handle stress well, especially stress related to possibly losing my dad, and he’s stable for now, but he won’t be forever. 

All I can do is keep going, keep writing, and keep doing my best. 

I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday and a happy new year! 



P.S. I really need to work harder at continuing to write and blog even when I get depressed. I always feel so much better when I do. It’s hard to fight that instinct to hide though. It’s something I definitely need to work on. :-)

My absolute favorite thing is finding a book I can’t put down

And reading it until really late at night

And only stopping when my eyes start to hurt and my vision gets blurry from either sleep or strain

And when I put it down I realize how tired I am and fall asleep instantly.

In the morning, I wake up, and the first thing I do is pick up the book

And I read until I’m hungry, or I need to pee.

I just love that.
