Hi Direstraits, 

 

Im sorry you’ve been all up n down but it’s good to get a little reprieve inbetween. Was very happy that you have been managing to get out n about to have some fun. The car ride with the Beatles music blasting would have been a hoot. 

 

It’s easy to overdo it though n then pay for it, isn’t it? Balance is the key. 

 

Hope tomorrow is a better day for you, get some rest n then you can go on some more adventures.

 

Take care💚💚

Hi direstraits, 

 

How wonderful that all you’ve got is a sore throat. Don’t forget to make lots of happy memories while you’re in a window. It’s nice to have them to look back on n to know that more will come when you’re in waves. 

 

I was so so happy to read you’re having a good day. This journey is weird, good one second, bad the next.

 

Enjoy your window, I had a window yesterday too n have woken up in one today. Let’s see what the rest of the day brings.

 

Sending hugs🤗

Hi Direstraits, 

 

Just checking in to see how you’re going. I’m still going through windows and waves but I’ve got lots to distract myself. I’ve been doing a diamond painting with a beach scene that makes me smile. Love the beach as you no doubt know. 

 

Sending sunshine your way☀️☀️☀️

Hi direstraits, 

 

Just checking in to see if you’ve picked up a bit. How was the rough surf from the hurricane? I love watching and listening to the waves at the ocean. Now as for waves during withdrawals that’s not so much fun! 

 

I guess waves are a great metaphor for what we go through, we need to ride them to the end each time and when they’re rough they’re certainly rough. There’s always an end to literal waves though, just like there’s always an end to our waves. It pains me to see people that are on a constant wave without any reprieve. That wave too will end eventually but it’s hard when it’s so long. 

 

Take care, Wishing you sunshine☀️☀️☀️

Hi again Direstraits, 

 

Glad you got to dip your toes in the water. Next week Friday, all going well, a friend and I are going to go the manmade beach in the city and chill there for the day. There are lots of cafes and restaurants there too so we will be having yummy foods as well. 

 

Sorry about the agitation last night, that certainly is a horrible feeling. All we can do is take an hour at a time and distract when in waves. We will there in the end n then it’s time to throw a party. Woohoo!🎉🎉

 

Rest up today, I’m still in bed but hoping to catch up with friends tonight. 

 

Take care💚

😟terrible night, my husband said something that set me off, the internal rage and shaking started,trouble getting to sleep,got up and took a magnesium,finally got to sleep ,woke again around 5 am feeling restless and obsessing about what happened,whining,a mess,fell back to sleep again til around 830 am.

 

got up still feeling miserable and shaky inside and outside.crying when my husband left for work.just feeling like I can't cope with life anymore.

I know it will pass but it's awful whenyou're in the middle of it.😢

 

thought I would be so much better at over 4 years off ….oh well.

 

just thought it might help if I wrote it down.

 

hope you're all doing better than I am right now. 😟

Take care .

thanks so much for your post,pb.

yeah,it's so easy to over react to everything in WD, good that u could walk away before it got out of control.

 

feel a little better now after eating something finally at around 330 pm, you'd think I'd lose some weight.😞

 

anyway,appreciate your kind words and hope you can get some peace,I know you've had a rough time lately.

 

love and hugs,ds

Hi Carmie

thanks for checking in.

had a pretty good day...we drove down to Smithville,a place that has lots of shops and restaurants,they were having an Italian festival and were really crowded.we walked around awhile and stopped for a hot dog then headed home stopping for ice cream along the way...beautiful day.

 

I'm sorry to read how much you've been suffering with the cfs but sounds like you've had some better times ,too.

wow,you were playing with a snake..yikes! we had one get in our apartment we used to live in...luckily our cat noticed it and we were able to call for help to have it removed.

 

well,I hope you have a good day and start feeling better.

 

sending big hugs ...ds
