Nothing But Cat & Therapy Talk

Good Morning, World!!! Lil Gertie has been keeping me busy and has been helping me through some rough moments. Moments I don’t want to discuss at the moment.

I saw my therapist yesterday and he really cares. He is concerned about me but thinks that Lil Gertie is being of help to me. He is now seeing me twice a week to help reduce the anxiety I have been dealing with lately. One session is going to be here at home and the other is going to be in the office. We are going to try doing this for about six weeks to see how it goes.  It is a type of exposure therapy he is going to be trying with me.

Lil Gertie takes great pictures if she would stay still long enough. I will post more sometime over the weekend. She really is a sweet cat. A cat that appears to be perfect for me.

Thank you for reading. Have wonderful three day weekend all. Peace Out, World

Furry Friend, Wake Up Call

Good Morning, World!!! I, once again got woken up buy Lil Gertie with her licking me smack dab on the nose. I have an inkling this is going to be an everyday or almost everyday occurrence. I have this inkling because she has done it two days in a row now.

Today, I am have two appointments. One with my therapist and one with someone with the vocational team at the mental health agency I am client of.  I am of course going to be discussing my new cat with my therapist. I will be discussing employment with him as well as with the vocational person.

I should get going as Lil Gertie is trying to get my attention. Thank you for reading. Peace Out, World!!!

Just A Bunch Of Ramblings

Good Afternoon, World!!! My face hurts like hell. After being punched in the face last night I realize how grateful I am that it could have been worse. I could have been more injured than I am.

I saw my therapist today and he saw my eye and how swollen it is. We discussed what happened. We processed what I went through and how I can handle the potential PTSD symptoms.

I now plan on working on one of my workbooks. My workbook specifically geared to strengths and recovery. As I want to learn how to be okay with the strengths I have. I don’t like to acknowledge that I even have any strengths.

After doing my workbook I plan on reading my book; Why Buddhism Is True. I also plan on reading some Buddhist Scriptures. I am finding a sense of peace searching into the Buddhist faith.

Thank you for reading. Have a nice day and Peace Out, World!!!

Tuesday Morning Thoughts

Good Morning, World!!! If you read my last post you know I got punched by a neighbor. I got punched in the face and have the black eye to prove it. It hurts like hell. The doctor told me last night that I have a slight concussion.

I am sure that when I see my therapist today that we will be discussing the assault as well as other things. Things like my safety regarding my neighbor being violent.

I also see my psychiatric nurse practitioner today and I am sure she will be discussing the same thing my therapist will be talking to me about. Except I see her before I see my therapist.

Right now I am watching the news. I don’t understand what the big deal is regarding the royal wedding. I’m not saying that I don’t care about it. I am just saying it doesn’t need to be discussed everyday for a month. Yes, I know it is this Saturday but I’m already sick of hearing about it.

There is a cloud cover here in Seattle which is making it a little cooler than yesterday. I wish it wasn’t cooler as I love the warm weather. The news say it is suppose to get up into the high seventies which I am thrilled about. I just wish it was in the eighties again. The eighty degree weather will be here soon enough.

Thank you for reading. Have a great day. Peace out, World!!!

Random Ramblings

Good Afternoon, World!!! My therapist called to check up on me as I left him a voicemail last night saying I was struggling. He was concerned as I would be if I were in his shoes. I apologized for concerning him and I wan informed to not apologize for my emotions.

I have been reading a great deal lately. It is something I really enjoy. If you have been reading my blog the last few days you know I am reading Star Wars: Heir To The Empire. It is a book that I am highly enjoying at the moment.

I also didn’t get any sleep last night however I was able to take a nap earlier. I feel like getting some sleep helped me a little bit. Getting sleep always helps.

As many of you know I really enjoy blogging. I am attempting to increase my readership as I have been blogging four years as of May 31st. Its hard to believe that I have been blogging for four years. As I am going to be celebrating four years of blogging I am trying to increase the amount of readers I have. I only have 330ish followers. That is not as many as some of you. At least I know that I am reaching people.

I am waiting to hear back to see if I got the job I interviewed for last week. I feel like if I take the time to interview then they can take the time to let me know if I got the job or not. I know when the right job comes it will come.

Thank you for reading. Have a wonderful day. I hope you all are doing well. Peace out, World!!!
