Check- In Time

Hi. I have been a bad blogger, again. I really don’t have time to tell you about my sad backslide over the holidays, or how I made a spectacular mess of spending meaningful time with my friends and family over that two week stretch of chaos we call “Christmas”. I would tell you that I did the best I could, but I am not sure that would be 100% honesty. I limped through it.

Now, I am back to reality. I have to go take a shower to get all of the sand out of my hair that my daughter threw into it at the beach yesterday. I have to get ready to show up for a job that I think I may require pharmaceutical help to make it through, and this is of some concern to me. The bigger issue is- I don’t know what the hell else I want to do, other than write, and I am clearly not very consistent with that either. The only other thing I can think of is that I would love to be an herb specialist, and own an apothecary, but how realistic is that? I still use coffeemate in my coffee, for Pete’s sake, and I don’t even do yoga with much conviction. I am pretty sure that is a job requirement for such an endeavor.

Anyway, I have been waking up, for three days now, to full on anxiety attacks, and this is not like me. I am struggling, to say the least, and I do get tired of saying those words. I am on a waiting list to do a mental health retreat type thing, to maybe figure out, for real, what the hell it is that is going on with me. I don’t care if you know, I don’t feel like hiding anything. Life is too short to feel the way I keep finding myself feeling, and I don’t know what the answer is…but I am certainly not ready to stop looking.

I am hanging in there. I have faith that it will all work out- because it really always does. That is all for now, I need to get this sand out of my hair. Have the loveliest day you are capable of having. I know I will.


I'm a single mom living life fully after years of intense addiction, trying to navigate life with grace-and failing spectacularly, sometimes. Learning to be a grown up In my 40's, without losing my lust for life, or my faith in humanity. Come, watch the antics. It should be fun (for you, at least).

  1. Christmas is the emotional equivalent of running through a military assault course under live ammunition. Just be glad you got through it, you’ll be able to start blogging again soon.


  2. Hi! With love in my heart and no judgement I offer a suggestion since you don’t know what else to do. Try for 30 days going to a meeting each day at least one time. See if the anxiety attacks stop. See if you’re outlook and patience with your job until you make a change improves. If it doesn’t – it doesn’t. But if it does . . . .


  3. As you know, the only thing you can really depend on is that things change. It’s the waiting that is so aggravating. ( this is when the music starts and Little Orphan Annie belts out “Tomorrow”. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Cathy
