I haven’t forgotten you!

Hello Everyone!

I am just popping in to let you know that I haven’t forgotten you or forgotten how to write a blog post.  I am just having a difficult time writing and staying focused.  One minute I am pushing myself like crazy to stay busy to keep my mind occupied and my body going.  Then I can’t seem to do either very well.  I don’t think my body has recovered yet from the exposures either.

I have talked about the spoon theory where you have only so many spoons in a week and  you have to be careful not to use them all before the week is gone.  I think I have used my physical and emotional spoons up for the next month.

Last night I went to bed early to read.  Everything seemed fine until I put my book away and was there with my mind left to its own devices.  The hurt hit me hard and I sat up and fed my journal with my emotions and let the tears fall.  The result was a poem for my dad.  It isn’t the one that I want to write; the one that I keep trying to write but the words don’t come. They will in time.  I hope to share last night’s poem with you when I have fine tuned it.

I am going to go through some of my older blog posts tomorrow and share some Catch-Up Mondays with you this week.  I have many drafts sitting here waiting to be finished, but they will have to wait a little longer.

Thank you all for your patience.  If there is a topic you would like me to write about or share again, please feel free to let me know.

    Grief can be a wicked, exhausting uphill trip. No apologies necessary. give yourself permission to take off from blogging completely. I, for one , would rather have you use the time you might spend on re-posting some blogs, to heal and decompress from all you have coped with and are coping with. Grief is more than enough to fill a platter, let alone a heaping serving of exposures piled on top. We will not forget get you! Please don’t be filled with expectations for helping us. Let your tears wash your grief and exposures away and just Be. Hugs!

    It takes time to process grief. Do what feels right to you and where you are in the moment. We’ll still be here, rooting for you.

    Blessings, Jennie

  5. And I haven’t forgotten about you. Grief is a tough go but adding that toxic chemicals can make one depressed and anxious,it is a tough place to be. Give yourself time to heal and PUT YOUR NEEDS FIRST. We’ll be here when you’re ready and able to blog again. 😀

  6. Hi all. I spent most of yesterday in bed. I am in the office taking care of some things that I need to take care of and then may just head back to bed. I am achey and my stomach is a mess (happens sometimes after exposures). Thank you all for you kind words.

  7. Take all the time you need, Kathryn. Everyone here is a friend, and we understand what an incredibly difficult time this is for you. There is no pressure here at all – just love and friendship. xoxo

  8. Thank you Danica. I am trying to keep on top of things. Right now my body is betraying me.
