I don't have the heart for a long, sad poem this evening for PAD Challenge, Day 10 so haiku it is!


birds chirping in tree
cat chattering, creeping near...
disappointment: flight!

(Penelope really thought she was gonna catch one of 'em earlier, but it was not to be!)

Instead of a sad poem, I think instead I will make a list of what I am grateful for.

So H and I went to the ER last night. He told the ER doctor that his chest had been bothering him for about a month. News to me! Thankfully all of the basic tests came back normal, but the doctor did recommend that he see a cardiologist for possibly a stress test.

Artie, I understand the allure of a program like that, but I would be very cautious.

Found an organization nearby that offers free support groups for victims of crime and abuse. They offer many other services such as domestic violence, crime and abuse advocates for all age groups as well as a 24 hour crisis line.
Two groups I might be interested in are “survivors of sexual assault support group” and “Boundaries support group.”

Also, the open and closed groups for domestic violence are possibilities: The description says “This group is an especially good fit for adults who are survivors of childhood abuse, multiple abusive relationships, and issues related to low self-esteem.”

The website doesn’t say how they are handling Covid restrictions. I feel it’s worth a few questions.

T is fine with it. I would still be seeing her.

Wentto bed earlyish and I woke up from a nightmare in which I ate something with gluten and knew I was going to get sick. Now I’m awake and worrying about getting sick still.

I think I’ll run my building’s back stairs till I calm down.

I am getting more and more irritated at places that want to make you use hand sanitizer before doing anything. Covid is not spread by hands. I despise senseless acts and I hate putting that stuff on my hands - I hate the way it feels and smells and is sticky. I usually just leave because there isn't any reason I have to go in but the idiocy of it irritates me. Sometimes I just pretend to use it like at the vaccination center (gym of my university - where they should know that it is stupid because it was the idiots at the nursing school doing it. And the student nurse who did mine was patronizing and told me I "did great" - I snarled back not to patronize clients). Theatre of pandemic for sure. After the first shot, the woman told me "congratulations" - I was like wtf? What is wrong with these people?

I wasn’t congratulated after either shot. There was nothing to congratulate me on. I sat there and got a shot.
