Frustrating Night

Good Morning, World. It is just after two in the morning in my corner of the world. My anxiety and PTSD are acting up big time because the building fire alarm went off once again. And once again I had to get Lil Gertie, my cat, into her carrier to evacuate the building. Only this time it was not a false alarm nor a malfunction. Someone’s apartment caught on fire due to the person falling asleep with a cigarette. Thankfully everyone got out safely and uninjured.

Now that I am back in my apartment, the first thing I did was calm down Lil Gertie as the alarm freaks her out. Now that she is calmed down I am reading a fantasy book. I am enjoying the book so far. I am only on the second chapter. I will tell you more about it in a later post.

Now, I think I am going go back to bed and attempt to sleep. I hope everyone has good night sleep. Good night and peace out world!!!

  1. How scary! I’ve been in an apartment fire caused by the same reason. It didn’t end well for the person, so very glad the person was uninjured. I hope the fire was far enough from your unit that you didn’t have to deal with smoke in your unit. The fire in my complex happened in a non-smoking complex. I imagine in Seattle yours is non-smoking, too. It’s unfortunate people ignore that, but glad at least that that person got out safely. Hopefully they learned their lesson!

  2. Ugh. How frightening. So you probably have smoke damage, then. I’m so sorry. I remember you also have dealt with neighbors being physically unsafe and violent. I had a situation like that before, too. So sorry you have all these new traumas happening while trying to manage your mental health.
