hi friends. mum awaiting a spot in nursing home, had a look thursday. got a tad emotional. bro has found some special accom in our region. close to family, mum etc. about 5 weeks. i go see mum tomoz. got paperwork for her to do. mentally she switched back on. ECT and meds, the support of professionals and family has brought her back mentally. physically is another issue. bless her.

been in a bad funk-am pushing thru, shrink increased meds. blood levels were low for therapeutic level. hands are crank, peripheral neuropathy and some ra i think. rf was elevated. de-clutter house, throw out old, desk, 200 kg, on me own, killed me. dragged it and flipped it out the back door. six foot monster. cleaning, sorted files and putting things away. the turtle usually lives in an organised chaos method, however it becomes chaotic in my head.

i know posting and responding less. have decided to follow my heart and will commence my spiritual development rather than seek peer gratification via work etc. closed my linkedin acct. cranking tunes, dvd died, using computer dvd. not as loud. bugger. clothes on line, swept, did dishes rubbish out and recycling. sis gave me a put together table and chairs. table was just legs, chairs, every part seperate. only completed one yesterday. my sis still got big furniture in spare room, she in bad pain. seen her yesterday, and she was bad. spinal stenosis, hips bad.

sis in melb has her new shop. went down last week or so ago. sp proud of her and her fiance. fingers getting cranky and cleaning up toomany errors. thx for the kind support my friends. ht.

As we travel this parallel life together I wish you peace and strength to carry on.
Last night as I sipped my Russian water I tried to relax with my dvd of Dark Side of the Moon
Breathe, breathe in the air.
Don't be afraid to care.
Leave but don't leave me.
Look around and choose your own ground.

Long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be.

Run, rabbit run.
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done
Don't sit down it's time to dig another one.

For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race towards an early grave.


Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I'd something more to say. .....

Wow my friend...so much going on!

Caring for others...for youself...attending to all the details, both big and small.

I am sending thoughts for healing, perseverance...and conversely, rest as well!

I encourage you to seek your heart's desire in finding what makes you feel fulfilled...and if that is in exploring your spiritual being again...then I send blessings in that regard!!

Post as you are led...we all have our ebb and flow here. There is no expectation or pressure...only community and support! ❤

HT,

Lots and lots going on, both mentally and physically.

I know the feeling in living in organized chaos, yet it being completely unorganized mentally.

Sending my best wishes to you and your family.

thx. the transitional pharmacy bill was incredulous. i checked with our regular pharmacist, he gave me the heads up. the turtle is on it. i thought incredulous was apt, and is my big word for the day!!! and correctly spelled. a couple of sleepless nights. visit mum to take in some drawers.

Uh-oh....it the bill covered by her plan?

I hope so, or that she can get assistance with it?

Those bills can get downright scary!

Positive thoughts,

All my best HT-if they think they're going to get one over on you they are wrong!
They don't know who they're dealing with!
