Monday was the weirdest greatest awful fantastic day. #MySpoons are legit confused.
So I know Mercury goes Retrograde on the 22nd. So my life has been about legit getting as many things airborne as possible before communications fail.
Sunday night I kept trying to sleep but was plagued by night mares. The 3rd was so terrifying I was afraid to sleep again.
One minute I was on the phone with a colleague in the dream, walking somewhere dark but familiar.

(Which I never do IRL.)
The next I was swept up and backwards, off my feet, by a smothering darkness, terrified but fighting.

It laughed a deep, evil cackle, echoing like it was emanating from the night itself.
I woke up fighting. It was a full hour before I was calm enough to move around & speak.
So yeah, fun start to the day!

After which one would expect the tone to be set, right?
Nope. I had one of the most energizing mornings.

Once I was fully awakened, I figured I should reset myself. Did some EFT, did a manifesting meditation & focused on having a can-do spirit.
Being centered seemed to align me with the brighter side of my life.

My sis made me eggs. I was able to come downstairs & drank coffee. I then got more work done today than in the 6 weeks past.
Then I had a nap and was awakened by another less petrifying nightmare.

But I did some deep breathing. And luckily today I was able to mentally focus. And went on to enjoy the day.
The day ended well too.

My brother in law bought me something for dinner, which my sister brought to me.

Eating fueled a second wind after the kids went to bed.
And Tuesday there will be enough adults around that I need not stay up until morning.
Puzzlingly good day. No idea why but I'm grateful.

I had a short-lived migraine in there too, but even that was caught before it went nuclear and hemmed in with meds.
Counting this as a win. Going to finish up this project.
Thinking of what the day could have been and what it ended up being, EFT & guided meditation gets at least part of the credit.

🎥 Intro to EFT - Tapping with Brad Yates - YouTube
I know it sounds corny AF & believe me I'm not one of these people who thinks meditation is some overnight miracle cure. But it helps.
I do the guided type so I don't have to figure out what to do. You can find a bunch of these on YoiTube, some as short as ten minutes.

🎥 Guided Meditation for Centred Happiness
Not everything works for everybody. But if you're struggling, try a few. If I don't sleep enough but I meditate, it gives me a little extra boost to get me through. An extra spoon if you will.

In any era the theme isn't theain problem. Let's start with the word "breastaurant."
In a world where people need a job enough to have to use their bodies for leverage, #MeToo isn't the thing in the way.
It's basic respect for women as PEOPLE. Does this restaurant perpetuate rape culture? Probably. So do lots of places.

Can you have CLEARLY POSTED rules and security precautions to protect these women? Um yeah.

Mayne I forgot the code mayne.

Too paranoid to unlock my phone with my face.
My mother's chain mail game is strong. I can't buy phones they open with my face cuz I might be beheaded.

I guess that's what I get for never forwarding these emails.
Also I never open the door for anyone because maybe they stole that uniform although how did they know when to come to my house Mom?

I know I have real depression. I know this.

Damn if coffee doesn’t help me more than hurt. #myspoons
I wonder if getting out of the habit of drinking coffee was a daft choice as a #spoonie with multiple fatigue conditions.
Once my body let me get out of bed today, I figured, let me get coffee while I'm up. And wow.

It didn't fix everything (I’m definitely depressed and need a therapist) but damned if I'm not actually getting things done for the first time in 3 weeks.

I like #Ifeelbad.

I hate the title. It's also accurate given the explanation.

I love the Indian 1st gen lead. I lover her being an older woman in text. I like the nerds.
Did her neighbor just ask her to agitate her compost? I'll fight you. #ifeelbad
I love how her husband wanted her to pick the restaurant, schedule the sitter etc. For the date where HE was going to spoil HER.

As a reward for putting her needs aside for his.

It’s really 1971. We’re just in hell. #ifeelbad #EmotionalLabor
