Week One

Yesterday was not a good day.  I had a meltdown, something in which I rarely  indulge.  Poor Terry, having to sit through my tantrum.  The good thing is that he went through his own dark valley of depression some 16 years ago, and he understands.  Still.  I shouldn’t have put him through that.

Some things did surface, though, that I need to address and quit stuffing down into that dark place in my soul that we all keep hidden and protected.

I’m trying to decide whether or not to call my doctor for medication.  If I were my own client, I would strongly suggest it.  I, however, am SO STRONG that I can get through this.  Right.

Well, my God is that strong.  And it has occurred to me that maybe I need to experience what I help so many other people pick their way through.  Take my own medicine.  We’ll see.  This is a busy week, with cleaning, laundry, and food prep that has to be done before Thanksgiving Day.

No time for any more meltdowns.

    Praying that God will lift you up and enable you to do all that you need to do. Even a doctor needs doctoring once in awhile, but it’s hard to see the “cure” when you’re the patient. In all of your busy-ness, just focus on the reason you do all these things to prepare for a joyful time together. 🙂

    Linda, your creator knew this was going to come along before you did and he has a handle on it and will see you through….. We pray your day tomorrow is brighter.
    Remember we all, if honest, have experienced the pressure cooker syndrome ….. glad you were able to let the steam out…. .a new day is coming and you will get through this… Love you!


    1. Thanks, Margie. It has been helpful just to be honest about what’s happening. I thought long and hard before “going public,” but the response has been so warm and sympathetic, and very encouraging. I’m glad I did it. It does help to talk openly. I love you guys. Know you’ve been down your own dark paths. Heaven looks better all the time, doesn’t it?
