Hello.... let me re-introduce myself... it's been a while.
I'm currently in a state (once again) where my life has crumbled and I'm starting over.
My last post was in 2019.... A lot has happened since then. Cliffnotes:
More deaths of people I love
Moved across the country
Fired From Job
Burnt out and Broken
Moved back home (across the country)
Now attempting to rebuild and rise from the ashes for the ... I've lost count (millionth) time.
It's a lot.
I have cats now. While not officially emotional support animals... let's be real they are. They help my anxiety and depression and are the best part of every day. They have their own instagram: @A_Kitty_Named_Chai They are pretty cute. Maybe give them a follow.
I've had Chai since October of 2021 and Mango since August of 2022.
Things I've come to realize that I've been ignoring:
My ADHD (Inattentive) effects me more than I'd like
I have CPTSD
I'm Burnt Out
That last one I've been aware of and am more aware now that it is a result of the above things and the fact that in addition to those injury and chronic pain have made it difficult to do anything about them.
So I'll be searching for a therapist. (hopefully I'll find a job that has insurance that covers that) and be working through some deep dark painful shit.
I realize that all of the above has effected my:
I'm 45. Theres a lot of shoulda woulda coulda floating around in my neurodivergent brain.
I'm going to attempt vlogging (which is scary... like who wants to see my face) in addition to the more comfortable writing that I'm used to.
So I hope you follow along in the journey as I rediscover/discover myself and do some healing. I'll also continue to explore deliciousness and fun places.
Thanks for reading. If you have things you'd like me to talk about... let me know.
