Distraction, distraction everywhere and not a point to land on.

bipolar-bear-meme-6014The good news is I’m sleeping better. Five and a half hours of sleep last night.

Bad news is I’m still flitting from thing to thing to thing like a bird in a cage who can’t decide on a perch to settle. As I’m writing this post, I am surrounded on the table by origami papers (for the 1,001 paper cranes, of which I have yet to make one), a jigsaw puzzle, and a book on anxiety. I’m reading all at the same time (picking whichever book fits my fancy at the moment): The Husband’s SecretWhen Panic AttacksThe Mayo Clinic Guide to Stress-Free Living, and The Most Beautiful Girl (for Netgalley). What are you reading?

I have another appt with my psychiatrist at 3:15 tomorrow afternoon. I made an appointment with a therapist (it’s been soooo long since I really got to talk to someone professional) for Wednesday at 12:45. Oh. Oh look, shiny! (I’m joking because otherwise I’d be crying.)

That’s all she wrote. Wish me luck.m

Have a safe and happy Monday. Peace out. xo

Wow, sounds tough. Hope your appointments go well. Can’t wait to see those cranes. What is they say, a journey of 1000 miles starts with one single step? Same holds true with cranes. It all starts with that first fold, that first crease, that first time you let out the breath you’ve been holding and realize you’re doing what the deceiver said you couldn’t. Peace.

    Oh, I like that Lisa! “The first time you let out the breath you’ve been holding and realize you’re doing what the deceiver said you couldn’t.” BAM! I’m a shallow breather by nature. When I go to sleep, I make it a point to breathe through my diaphragm, just like when I sang in the choir. I’ve been holding my breath during the day, waiting for the other shoe to fall! You are so wise. xo
