Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a word that contains a silent letter.” Choose a word that contains a silent letter and use it in your post, or write about words with silent letters in general. Enjoy!
Life changes as we get older. And damn it, not all the changes are easy to handle. I wish I had half the problems and twice the solutions. You’d think that by now I would be numb to bad news. Sadly, I am not. When doctors talk to you in that voice designed to make you stay calm, it is a sad indicator of unwelcome news to come. I have no doubt that I will move forward the best I can. But… just once, I’d like them to tell me some good news.
Of course, for me emotional problems exacerbate physical ailments. My fibro seems to start a campaign to attack new areas with pain just as I tell myself I am getting a handle on my feelings. My head is swimming with serious worries about loved ones. It would be helpful if I were able to get some restorative sleep, but unfortunately, I struggle with insomnia. Physical pain, emotional pain, and a lack of sleep are the trifecta for a difficult existence.
I am in the doldrums right now. I hope to not stay here long. I am keeping myself busy working on chores. I get pleasure from accomplishing tasks. I am focusing on finding moments of happiness. This weekend, I am going to see my grandkids to celebrate Z2’s 16th birthday. The day will be filled with good memories. I can use some positive energy to fill my bucket.
