Sigh, I hope it's temporary

I was not doing well tonight. I was going through some stuff. When my sister dropped off her dog to my house I told her I felt like an animal and that I was going crazy. She tried to reassure me and told me some positive things. By the way, I didn’t feel like a goat or a horse or something. I meant I didn’t feel like a human. being. I felt like I was just surviving on an animal level. Anyway I promised I would set up an emergency session with a therapist. I also promised I would call my step-mom tomorrow for support and I would take a walk with her dog. Well I took Annie for a walk and then I drove through Burger King with her and got a hamburger. Well, when I got home my other sister had called and left a message. She said my older sister had called her to tell her she was really worried about me. She told me to call her back. I called her back but I got her machine. She said call her in Seattle if things got much worse. So that’s where it’s at.

It occurs to me… from your past post… this is just my 5:00 a.m. coffee pondering… please take it with a grain of salt…

But it occurs to me that you have your roughest days when you’ve been cooped up for a while. You have been out most of the week due to this injury. Physical pain will cue my head circus. Being cooped up will also cue my head circus. A dramatic shift in routine is not easy.

A day off here and there feels great… a week off? I’m climbing the crumbing walls and thinking they have faces in them.

I am really glad you have cool sisters and some family to fall back on. I’m also glad your going to talk to the doc to feel better.

I do hope you feel better Nick. Your a diamond gent and I’m rooting for you to feel better on all fronts.

Very perceptive.Your 5:00 am musing makes sense. My sisters just called, they are about 5 minutes from the Space Needle. Wanna meet my sisters? Lol.

No, she couldn’t afford it, she was a nickel short.
Yeah, they were just checking up on me.

‘Turns red’. I ate two of them by myself. Poor dog. She is staying with a greedy host.

Well, I’m sure she isn’t starving, it’s probably healthier for her to not eat burgers.

Then the onion rings I fed her were a HUGE mistake.

No, it wasn’t Taco Bell that we went to !!
