Middle of the Night of No Sleep So Art Work & Music Type of Night

I’m not finished with coloring his Mandela but I worked on it a good hour.. I hope to update you with my progress with it. Coloring helps with my recovery as well as my mindfulness meditation

Sadly, I am not able to fall asleep again tonight so I decided to color. The above picture is what I colored just tonight as I listened to music. In fact I listened to my recovery play list. Coloring is a form of mindfulness meditation for me and the music helps me get into the groove. In fact there was a period of time my cat Billie Dean was trying to help me color which complicated things for a few minutes.

An Opps = A Lazy Sunday

Good Evening, World!!! It’s been a lazy Sunday. It’s been a lazy Sunday because I haven’t really done anything today. I didn’t even go volunteer because I slept in which is a huge OPPPS for me. When I called letting them know they told me to not worry about it. I feel really bad and was informed to not worry about.

Since I missed my volunteer job, I have felt a little out of place which is why I think it’s been a lazy type of Sunday. Which was a good thing in a way. I was able to go to local park with hiking trails. A friend and I met up at the park and went hiking on the trails. It was the perfect day for it due to the nice, beautiful day here in Seattle. The best part was the mountain was out. When people in the Seattle area say the mountain is out they meant Mount Rainer isn’t hiding behind any clouds. It was nice to go hiking and hang out with my friend.

After hanging out hiking with a friend, I got home and rested. I rested by reading. I read the first three chapters of DragonSong. So far so good. Lets hope I continue to enjoy it. I love to read especially fantasy and science fiction books.

A Lazy Type of Day

Good Morning, World from my corner of the world known as Seattle. In fact it will be a lazy day for me except for doing some minor chores in my home. I am not going to do many chores today becaggguse I don’t feel like doing much of it.

Since I am not going to be doing many chores today, I plan on doing some mindfulness meditation practice. This will help me be in the present time. A time to be present minded in your own way. Mindfulness meditation is something that can change you in a positive way.

After doing mindfulness of day will help me play with my cat, Billie Dean and playing with him will be fun for both my cat and myself. Plus he will tired out after Billie is done playing.

The lazy part of the day is me reading a book today. I am looking forward to reading most of the day. I love to read. It helps me distract myself from the issues I am dealing with.\

Looks Like a Day to Not Watch News

Good Morning, World!!! Today is going to be a day I am not going to watch television. Well, maybe I will watch television later but not at the moment as all the major networks are talking about what the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) did earlier with over turning Roe V. Wade. I am not watching it as the decision make me angry and how politicians are going to politicize this decision especially when the mid term elections happen. All I want to do is watch the Today Show on NBC but it looks like that is not going to happen today.

Since I’m not going to watch television this morning nor the news this evening just to make sure my mental health stays in tact, I am going to read. I am going to read “DragonSong” by Anne McCaffrey. I am choosing to read this book in hopes it grabs my attention within the first two chapters as my concertation isn’t at its best.

I do not have much else to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end that you read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

A Mindfulness Type of Post

Good Morning, World!!! Or maybe I should say Happy Friday Eve!!! Either way, I am greeting everyone with a smile despite being somewhat anxious. Not sure why, I am anxious and I am okay with that. I am okay with that because of doing mindfulness and meditation.

I started doing the “Daily Calm” on the “Calm” app once again. At one point in time I did the “Daily Calm” over one hundred days in a row. I am hoping that I can get back into the habit of doing it again like I did before because it helped me be in a better headspace.

Not only does the “Daily Calm” put me in a better headspace, my cat does it as well. My cat, Billie Dean has helped me a great deal to be in a better headspace. Billie has also helped me do mindfulness especially when he is on my lap. I am so grateful for my cat.

I don’t have much else to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog I would not be writing my blog. Once again, thank you from the bottom of heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Yesterday Was Not a Good Day

Good Morning, World or at least it is three twenty one in the morning in Seattle. Yesterday (Tuesday) was not a good day for me. I ended up in the hospital twice in the Emergency Room due to being suicidal. First time I went in it was four something in morning and was discharged. Thankfully I got home just in time for my psychiatric nurse practitioner called me for our phone appointment, She put me on Ativan which was a good thing.

Being home was not a good thing so I called my therapist who is fairly new to me and appears to be a great therapist. I also called one of the supervisors who happens to be my therapist supervisor. I called the both and left them both an email. The supervisor suggested to go back to the hospital so I did. But the first thing I did was have my grandpa and uncle pick up Billie with his supplies to take to grandpa. My uncle and grandpa dropped me back at the same hospital I was earlier.

On that note they had already did shift change and the social worker on duty was surprised to see me as I’m not going to the Emergency Room for mental health in over four years. Partly glad it was her and partly wish she wasn’t her. She pointed out some stuff I needed to hear which let me come back home. I’m glad she helped me make that decision as I fear if I ended back in a psych ward I most likely would have retreated to old behavior.

As of right now I can’t sleep for unknown reasons so I took an Ativan to help with my anxiety since Billie my cat is with my grandpa and uncle. I know Billie is in good hands but I sure do miss the little dude. Well not so little as he is fifteen and a half pounds. He could loos a few pounds just like I do.

A Stress Free Sunday

Good Evening, World!!! It is eight o’clock in the evening here in Seattle. If you read my blog on the regular basis you know that I have been laid of as of this past Friday (June 3rd). Yesterday I was stressing a little bit but realized the stress knowing I was being laid off is not long a stress at least at the moment. It has been a stress free Sunday and feel great to be stress free. The last three months at my now previous employ caused my anxiety and depression symptom increase. Now that everything is done now with the lay offs it is like the lift has been lifted.

On that note I volunteered today and as PAWS Cat City and that help immensely. I’m happy that volunteer at Cat City because it is a form of self care for me just like my own cat Billie is a source to help with my stress. It appears that animals help a great deal. I am grateful for my cat Billie and and my volunteer job at Cot City.

On a good note I have a job interview tomorrow. I am nervous as hell but at least if I don’t get the job I have the practice of the job interview. Send good juju, energy, vibes or any thing good my way when it comes to my job interview tomorrow (Monday).
