I had a rough weekend. Between being on my menstrual and being robbed the least I can say is that I am pretty upset. I'm safe so no worried I just didn't get paid like I was supposed too.
I'm also exhausted beyond belief. I got maybe four hours of sleep over the three day weekend I had. It wasn't all bad. In the night while we were driving I felt really good. Almost like nothing could touch me. I haven't looked at the night sky in a long time and it felt good.
I don't normally leave home because it makes me sick. This weekend made me sicker then normal because I was outside almost the whole time. I guess I should try to go outside more. I'm still tired though. I may need to sleep more.
But I wont be allowed to sleep the way I prefer because my stepfather will be home during the day and he gets upset at my sleep habits. No one in my family understands so I just have to bear with waking up at 9am until I finally move out of here.
The rest of these two weeks are going to be rough I can feel it.

Is it that you are moving out in two weeks?  Then you will be able to sleep when you want.  But try to get sleep regularly.  It helps our overall health.   nono You feel a lot better mentally too. 
I hope that things go well for you.  I am glad that you enjoyed the stars.  Appreciate the simple things in life.  Not that stars are simple, but they are always there and often overlooked.
Hugs, Karen

Hey Saae, I'm glad that you found your way here. For me things like the night sky, enjoying the beauty of nature...they are one of the few things in my life that bring me true joy. If you do get sick when outside, whether it be allergies or just because you're unused to it, I would suggest reading my post on Rhodiola Rosea. I will bump the post anyways because I was gonna ask jaimee how he is doing. It helps with immune resistance and also just general resistance, whether it be allergies or what. It also (by my own word, I took it for two months before having fund issues) makes you just generally's kind of hard to explain exactly. I felt a sense of well being for what seemed like no reason, found myself smiling more, more talkative, more energy, and felt more like the "myself" that I strive to be.

I would say that more sleep would be a huge factor also, that is aaalways good to get. I would also suggest really looking next time your outside and the stars are out, give yourself a minute...let the view soak in...sit for a few and think about the fact that they are all actually unbelievably huge masses of fisson, most larger than the Sun by many many times. Hehe now try to think about the spaces involved in such a proposal, between each of all the tiny points that you see...and those are just the ones that are visible through the haze of the atmosphere. On top of that...we are but one galaxy of many in the universe, all filled with the same stars and distances, all of it Created for us. When I find myself doing this...things in my mind calm, everything slows down a bit, it gives perspective to what is more important and what is less.

I don't know if it will help you, but this is just what I know to help when I am feeling like what you explained. I hope that you feel better and that your move goes as smoothly as possible (hehe always expect some changes), and keep us posted on how you are.
