All At Once

• Both my grandmothers died.
• My favorite cat dharma died.
• Bryn and I got crazy sinus and ear infections, still getting over it. First time baby was really sick and that was really hard. I reacted to the antibiotics and was doubled over…
• My boss came to work with me for two days in the middle of all of this.

I just needed to write some of this down and get it out of my head. On one had does not sound like a lot but on the other it has been crazy juggling time. So why do things like seem to all happen at once, like something is testing your resiliency or ability to deal with more and more. The older I get the larger the challenges and the more tired I feel. I remember my parents talking about this and at the time I did not understand. I mean overall I am okay. I feel I have developed the ability to just look forward and move ahead. I try not to dwell does not seem to do any good. I also have a bad memory (maybe a coping mechanism?). What more can I do beside exercise and meditate both of which I am very lax on as of late.

I know exactly what you mean - how sometimes it seems that events gang up on you.

Now, twelve years after the end of life as I knew it, when it's literally a struggle for me to get out of bed in the morning or to put one foot in front of the other, all I can say is that you probably have a lot more in the gas tank than you're feeling. If that helps any!

Sorry to hear of your losses. May you have the strength to deal with this and get yourself through all of this. Things will be fine with time. I have learnt in life that memory losses happen when i dont pay attention to things. If i conentrate hard and pay attention, i found that i dont have a memory loss problem. You should try it too... it may work for you.

Thank you for stopping by my blog the other day. Really appreciate your comments.
