Freein I too believe they're still there in a connected sense. Dad came out of sugery once and repeated what I was saying. He was completely unconscious while I was talking. Glad you're sober to be there. Your mum would be proud.

Izzy hold on to that new vision.

Mariah that photo is epic. What a beautiful place you come from.

Hot here busy completeing paperwork for a new job. Siesta in the arvo. Need to find a good strong principal in a school with space.

New phone Samsung S7 from phone company. 75 bucks a month calls internet etc...

It's all about the money and looking after my body really well this year ...

Hope all are well.

Good luck with the paperwork Obo. Hope you find a great job nearby.

I have a day off today. It's not great weather, but I'm hoping to make a start on my square foot garden. Just clearing some space for it would be a help. OH seems to be on board with it too (unlike my tightrope walking idea ) - probably because there's a possibility of food at the end of it?

Still starting my day with some exercise - I have some muscles peeping through, it's amazing!

Have a great day all.

That's awesome Free, I've taken this last year off & have lost a lot of muscle but Doc recently told me that as long as it doesn't hurt I can get back to the weights. I hurt anyway so we'll see if it worsens with a routine. I had hoped to start back this week but doesn't look like that will happen....I am hoping to make the trip to see the Grandsons this week. Will be nice to have some days off for a long weekend, has been awhile.

Had a late night helping a relative last night & this am & going on little sleep & feel a cold coming on. Time to rest

Sounds like you need a break Mariah. Fingers crossed that you can shake off that cold before it gets a hold.

Are there other forms of exercise that don't cause you pain? Going to the gym to inflict pain on yourself doesn't sound much fun "yogawithadriene" has a free daily course on at the moment. UP, it might interest you too, I remember you were thinking of trying yoga a while back?

Have a lovely time with your grandsons Mariah.

Good morning I am hurting with arthritis Free whether I'm working out or not. The Rhumetologist just started me on a medication but said it could take a couple months to make a difference. I'm sure it will improve as the weather improves in the spring.

Not feeling so hot this am & disappointed I will probably have to cancel my trip to see the kiddos.....Mom & Dad wouldn't like if I showed up sick.

have a good day all!!

Hope you're feeling better soon Mariah- no fun!

For any Eddie vedder fans- his music has been my fav lately. If you haven't heard "Rise" from the movie soundtrack he did for "Into the wild", for me, it's a perfect song for recovery, beautifully played


Such is the way of the world
You can never know
Just where to put all your faith
And how will it grow

Gonna rise up
Burning black holes in dark memories
Gonna rise up
Turning mistakes into gold

Such is the passage of time
Too fast to fold
Suddenly swallowed by signs
Low and behold

Gonna rise up
Find my direction magnetically
Gonna rise up
Throw down my ace in the hole"

❤️

I've just looked him up on u-tube, Izzy, and I love it too, thanks for sharing

Mariah, I hope you're feeling better soon

It's cold, wet and windy here, definitely a good night to go to bed early. I'll probably listen to an Eckhart Tolle meditation before I go to sleep, see if I can quiet my mind a bit.

Hope everyone's week is going well.

Thank you Izzy & Free.....woke with a head cold in the middle of the night. Am home doing sinus cleanses, Alka seltzer plus & vitamin C packets. No sick pay so will have to use my time off I had planed to use to see Grandsons but such is life, I will make a way to go see them anyway when I'm better. Learned this afternoon that the highway between here & there is a sheet of ice anyway.

Let us know how your doing Obo...Up....Tops??

I hope you go to therapy Obo. The temptation is to think you're doing great so you don't need it...but I reckon it's gonna take a while to get to and deal with your anger issues?

Enjoy Mr Cave

Mariah- sorry your sick but glad you're not on icey roads

Free- yeah, he's known for kinda angrier music but I really like the mellower style of that whole soundtrack - and he's such a poet ... and musician

Obo- I was the worst about making my therapy appointments - I do think you'll be glad if you go

You ok up?

Hope today is a better day for you UP.

This week has gone so quickly. I had a reflective moment earlier, just the realisation that life is so very short. It's hard to find ways to keep that life energy pumping. It's so easy when you're young, the energy just comes without you even trying. But as we get older we seem to have to put more effort in to it. Trying not to let life become unconscious routines and habits seems a worthwhile goal, but how? I think that's where mindfulness can be so helpful. I've decided to step up my yoga practice as a way to bring more mindfulness in to my life.

Mariah, hope you're feeling better today.

Keep on keeping on everyone, I'm in for the Bargain

Drove an hour to the quacks....

Then she says she's not suitable for me. Refers me to a male quack because he is better equipped to deal with my issues.

She hadn't called him. And failed to mention this on the phone to me earlier in the day. She said a man would be able to handle anger and relationship issues for men better than her.

This took 10 minutes.

So i thanked her for her honesty and went to leave. But she wanted full payment for the session.
I asked her if that was fair and reasonable. THEN she asked for half.......

I told her if she really wanted 50 bucks she could have it.

I was paying cash to avoid medicare and being on a record.....

She said oh no then.... I told her not to worry about a referral and walked off.

Bloody therapy is all crap. You cant trust them. I studied with and drank with them before.

No worries not drinking. But did have to go to the fish and chip shop.

Still really upset about it though.

I'm sorry the person wasn;t a good fit and jerked you around.

Bottom line is tho you're still left with an anger problem (and lets be honest a 'eff it all' problem)

I identify. But those are things that only served me well in my old drinking life.

You need to do something about those things Obo. Maybe another therapist is the way, maybe not, but don't put it all on the back burner.
