Glad you are a little better, Suze.
My brain is wired weird post burns. I hammered through Nov/Dec- carefully with gym stuff- and even tho I have lost 14kg now- and have settled into a routine with gym work- rationed- the pain is back. Stupid brain. Or stupid something. Me probably- but not complaining...too much.

A pic of part of the hills today on one of my sanity drives- burnt but healing (apt, huh?)

Thank you....woke up in a bad way.
Now the tears are pouring....need to get myself together here.
I am going to be on my own here for four days, which is not an issue, but well, this is all very hard, and kind of all over again. Washing face and getting on with it.

I will be offline today, maybe tomorrow- depending on how the camping bit goes with lunatic friend and another gal who are members of the club we all are members of. They will share a tent- camper number three is a chatter- lunatic friend is not. I will be ensconced in my car- on a mattress, with a book- a quilt and earplugs at night. So not really camping for me- more like having a mobile bedroom. Packed the essential- camp stove (gas canister- small, very efficient) for coffee, coffee cup....I have a very efficient way of preparing- I stuff anything that might be useful into shopping bags- then get lots of exercise searching through all of them to find stuff. Another essential is flip-flops (we call them thongs)- when venturing into no man's land to find the dunny at night. Enjoy your weekend folks.

Have fun camping PJ

Time for some guided meditation 'cause it's been a couple days....my mind is all cray cray

Got this from the Unders thread and I think it's great....

Good luck with the camping PJ! 🏕

Purps, that’s a great little quote. I hope your brain calms down - I hate that anxiety thing. We are here

Glad your situation seems better, too, Venus!

Have a great day. Be good ...

Glad Nick’s mom is better than you thought. Keeping you all in prayer, Suze.

Sounds like you’re ready to have some fun, PHX.

Hey, MITA, Purps, BBG and Dee.

I have Sophia and Olivia all weekend. I know why we have our kids when we’re younger.

Have a great weekend everyone.
