Morning one and all.

Thanks Fbl, a good lyric. Never knew that about pumpkins with the frost, thought it was just sprouts!

Wolfie, did he clip your ears into what shape! Spock? I always wanted Spock ears when we watched Star Trek as kids. Bet you look dapper now.

Hope last night was dreamless or if you dreamed it was about likkle lambs leaping in the soft meadow.

I had a weird one last night, big group of dogs loose and a guy and his car had rolled out of an hotel drunk, he was laid comatose with a smile on his face. I was on the hunt for a bottle of vodka ! Didn't get one though. Lots of other stuff going on as usual with dreams.

I think sometimes Wolfie the more you try not to think of something the more it is there. have you had a word with the therapist you speak with?

Wolfie. Have you tried sleeping with background music? I know YouTube has lots of sleep music and sounds- like wind or waves or streams. I've used it befor when I've had a bout of insomnia .
Hair ears & nose clipped eh? You will be one smart Wolfie !

FBL, I've never heard that poem before, how lovely, thank you for sharing it
And thank you for the congrats ( and to you too Wolfie!) it does feel good racking up the sober months.

Although I've been extra busy and doing more days/hours this week, it has gone pretty quick. Just today and then tonight I pick up hubby from the station and the weekend is here again! One more busy week and then things get kinda back to normal.

Hugs all overs. X

Ps, I'm getting the fourth pair of leggings, they're in the post and I got an apology for the 'confusion' haha the squeaky wheel gets the most oil!!

Good morning, Overs!

Wolfie, hopefully you got some sleep before seeing Toots' post. After seeing that pic, I might just get nightmares, too.

Mags, sorry to admit that I never had Spock ear envy!

Thanks guys after logging out I put on a guided meditation video & I didn't dream as much no where like the last two days so I'm really grateful for that

Spock ears would be so cool Mags but alas it wasn't meant to be

The guy always does my eyebrows with a comb & mini clippers sounds silly but I can't stand bushy eyebrows with wispy hairs everywhere and when he done my ears i didn't ask but he got the one hair on my right side that was buggin me I was well happy I said thank you I've been trying to get that with scissors lol

Thank you Toots, D, FBL, Drake, Rusty, Saskia

As for my therapist I'm on a waiting list since my last therapist left I asked the person who is helping out with courses & work & she said if you havnt heard anything by the end of October then phone me again ? I'm a bit peeved at this and I'm not even sure if this is the right help as they are focusing on anxiety and not on depression and they havnt actually made me think it was Anna who helped me going out regularly again what with talks of walks the books that have really helped my agoraphobia if it wasn't for my foot I'd be out doing 5 miles now (btw i plan on exercising again this weekend hopefully get a pair of karimoor)

I'm ringing the Dr after this post to get an apt as I think I need help and all this waiting is doing my head in & I don't think they have helped its more you guys & I'm not even saying it like that but for real you guys make me better & stronger

Ringing the Dr now

Hey y'all, happy Wednesday.
Can you believe winter is coming. I can't. Time is flying by, makes one think.
So my dental insurance doesn't cover what I thought it would. Big time dissappointment. Some tears were shed over that. I'll never understand why dental isn't included in medical insurance.
So I went to a new mental health counselor yesterday, because the last one changed jobs, and she encouraged me to go to group therapy for my anxiety and addiction issues. So I think I'm going on friday to group therapy! I have never done it before. I'm nervous and also kind of exited. She seemed to think I would really benefit from it.
I've been having bad dreams too lately, and trouble sleeping. I think it's just been too hot in my room. When I'm hot while I'm sleeping I have nightmares, bad ones. I had a terrible one the other night where I was basically dying and possessed and was awake in my dream and couldn't wake up out of the actual dream. I've had those for years and it's usually if my head is covered up or hot or something. Weird, hey?

SW, try mynoise.net it's really cool. Here's the link:

https://mynoise.net/noiseMachines.php

FBL I loved that poem. I might see if I can print it in the paper.

It's beautiful here right now, cool, clear, bright. Getting colder all the time though eep. I wonder when snow will fly, I hear it is usually here by the end of October.

IP, I hear ya on the dental insurance. I have what they call a "dental discount" plan. It only costs about $150 per year and it saves me about 30-50% on various dental expenses. Not sure if it's available in Canada, but you may want to investigate further. Glad you liked the poem. My grandma used to read it to us when we were little kids.

SW - hope you have a good dreamless sleep tonight and get through to your doctor on the first ring in the am

Just ate a Turkish Delight - yum it was delicious - haven't had one in years. It's the small things that make me smile.
