Had an annual (or so) physical exam and got a shingles vaccine upon doctor's recommendation. Now I can't tell whether the stuffy nose is due to that vaccine, the usual allergies, a cold or flu, COVID, or maybe something else... and somehow I don't even want to know! 😑

A kind of a not-so great day for me today. Went to the dentist and I'm going to need work that's expensive. I didn't think it would come down to that. Some fillings and a crown. After that I had to have the battery replaced on my car. So I'm going to have a whopper of expenses this month.

I'm still in bed, watching TV . . . and it's after 2 p.m. This is getting to be a habit. I don't feel depressed. I just don't seem to care about anything.

My mom is turning 70 in 3 weeks or so. My birthday is the day before but I honestly could care less about my own birthday. Although I think this one will be quite a bit diffrent then last one. But anyways my mom turning 70 is bumming me out. Plus all my health issues which are causing finacincal issues. And its also just that time of the year where my SAD is partiuclarly bad. I'm glad my therapy situation is under control and shes being helpful.

I Agree but…Grace Doesn’t Need to be Used to Excuse or Continue Intergenerational Trauma.

•Growing Up Many of My Immediate Family Members Would Do or Say Something Harmful Etc..

•They Would Never Apologize to Each Other. My Mama and Siblings Still Do This.

•They Go Months Without Speaking. Then Act like Nothing Happened and Start Speaking but Nothing is Ever Resolved.

•Just like Any Relationship, Once Another Situation Happens, Each of Them are Arguing about Old **** and the New Situation.

•My Dad’s Side is Exactly the Same, Except They Go YEARS Without Speaking.

•This is a Toxic Pattern of Functioning in Dysfunction and It’s Exhausting.

•If I Did/Said Something, I Will Apologize Even If We Decided to Desolve Our Friendship, Relationship Etc.

•Sometimes Relationships, Interacting Needs to End or You Feed ‘Em with a Long Handled Spoon.

•The Hurt can be so Deep, Painful or Traumatic. People Don’t Have to “Forgive and Continue” the Relationship…Including Relationships with Family Members. Forgiveness is Not Required for Healing.

•People Can Choose to Solely Focus on Healing Daily check in thread:Ups and Downs #30*🩹 the Hurt, Pain, Trauma and PTSD.

Today it's like I've been glued to my recliner in front of the TV.

This is not a good way to live. If I don't stop this soon, I think I'll get me a dog. The pooch will require being walked a few times a day.

I am trapped in a dead-end job. I can only afford the worst apartment in the city. I have written another novel and it is the worst yet. My life is utterly hopeless. Sometimes I contemplate the end, but I would never do it, not yet. Maybe in ten years.

This day has just gotten started. It's wet outside, but it looks like it will break up in an hour or two and may turn out to be a sunny day. As usual, before getting out of bed, my mind had been racing. I'm going to clean and then after lunch, I plan to shop and hopefully purchase a new bike. Yesterday I took my old bike to a recycling place and got a little cash for it. It wasn't much but better than nothing.

Last night, while preparing to sleep for the night, I saw a police car with it's lights going just outside of my window. I looked to see what was going on. There was a young woman at the corner on the bottom that the police were tending to. I don't know what was happening, but it appeared like the woman was crying.

Yesterday, the friend whom I recently let go, messaged me. It was nice of him but I told him I'd like to get back together if he would try to understand me more. We've been though this before. Also yesterday, I had a set a time to talk to my college friend in the mid-afternoon, but decided to postpone it because of the bike. So we agreed to schedule it tomorrow morning in which that will be a perfect time for me and him.

Was a busy day today. Cleaned in the morning. After lunch I went to the bike shop and got a brand new bike. It's the same as the last one, except it feels a little bit lighter, which is nice. Took a one hour ride later in the afternoon and it felt like a nicer ride than before. I think that the people on the streets could tell I was happy because they seemed to have smile back at me. It never happened like that before!

I doubt JK Rowling expected much, either, yet she's now richer than the Queen of England. You never know... even if it's sort of like a lottery. Just keep at it!
