Its Monday and its cold. I had to take in all my indoor plants in from outside before the cold killed them. That means that I will be making plans to put my Kayak away, and have to pack up the outdoor stuff before the snow comes. I realize its just the beginning of Fall but I am never ready for it and to be honest it makes me sad. I love summer.
I had a very very busy weekend. Did a lot of work with my church and we managed to raise almost $10,000. for a local charity in my city. But I am still tired, happy it all went well, but tired.
I have been fighting the tears today. I keep telling myself don’t give in just keep your head up and tell yourself your tired and don’t give into finding a place to hide and not come out. The darkness has moved away from my table, sitting in the shadows of the room. Confusion has become disinterested in my for now, its negitivity that wants to follow me around. Another day of fighting another day of feeling not positive, another day of dragging my butt.
I can not think about the fight. I can not think about how far or how long this has gone on. I can’t think about the walls that I feel stopping me from being able to handle tasks. I have been trying to focus myself on just today. Today I will eat lunch and I did. Today I will pick up milk and cream cause we are out and today I will get something for supper. Today I will clean up the kitchen, today I will clean the bathrooms and I will take sometime to relax cause I need to refocus and put myself in a place to handle tomorrow. I can not think about later this week. To think ahead or about too much is like a trucker trying to load and drive all its goods in one trip instead of the three or four trips it will take to complete the job safely and correctly. My mind can not handle too much planning it overwhelms and I become paralized.
So this fall I have quit everything. I can only handle trying to get some exercise a few days a week and one committee that only meets once everymonth. I have been at the mercy of my wreckless mind. I am going to try to trick it back. If I reduce the amount of things it has to think about maybe I can get what needs to be done and move onto the next. A list of the important stuff to remind me what is what and slowly check it off. I am not sure what will happen if I fall into a depressed state. I am not sure what will happen when I drop in a hole — today I must just think about today– and the tear fight for today.
till next time
