May 2022 Blogging goals and changes

I took a break from blogging for most of the month of April and am slowly getting back into it. The days are long when you don’t work, and researching and writing gives me something to do to break up the day. I’m trying to avoid streaming movies and shows during the day, focusing on…

Dream Speak: astral travel and the fluidness of lucid dreaming

This afternoon I went down for a nap because I was feeling pretty drained. My hours have almost regulated themselves and I’m getting a good six hours of sleep most nights and am up before nine most mornings. But then by two or three in the afternoon, I need to stretch out and rest my…

Spiritual empaths and natural empathy

The other day I came across a really good blog post by Dr. Perry. I followed him back in 2020 and other authors like him when I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I’ve had issues with anxiety all my life but my doctor never diagnosed me. It’s a shame really. This article on Empathy…

Dream Speak: What’s your earliest memory?

This was a question that popped up on Reddit and as I was doing some writing today, a vision popped into my head as clear as thought it happened yesterday. When I was an infant, maybe just a year old, my mother took me and my siblings on a train ride. It could have been…

My new meds are causing some crazy anxiety dreams

It’s Tuesday morning and I’ve been awake since 7:30. The sky is dark this morning even after 9:00 am. I just finally got out of bed, got dressed and have my breakfast and a cup of coffee. Breakfast this morning is a piece of toast with half a banana, some oatmeal granola that I made…

Dream Speak: recurring nightmares and stress

I keep having this recurring themed dream where I wake up in an unfamiliar condo or apartment and it’s a complete shithole. Pardon my French. It’s a different apartment every time but similar kind of building. Much like my first apartment which was a literally shithole. Last night’s dream was no different. I woke up…

Insomnia aftermath: considering a self-lobotomy

Good morning dear readers. It’s 8:00 am on Tuesday morning and I’m wide awake. You might think that I’m turning a new leaf but not really. I haven’t been to bed yet. Actually that’s not true. I have been to bed. But once again, I tossed and turned for two hours before finally crawling out…

Just another lazy Sunday

It’s Sunday afternoon as I sit down to the computer for the first time. My brain is foggy and I’m trying to make sense of all the weird dreams I had last night. I now remember why I don’t like taking sleeping pills. It’s all the dreams. So many weird dreams. That and it just…

Boxing Day Rituals

It’s 8:30 am and I’m wide awake on Boxing Day morning. I always wake up a little sad on Boxing Day. I love Christmas. But it feels you put so much work into Christmas for a few weeks, and then it’s over. Just like that. Boom. You’re done until New Years – at which I…

I had a dream where I couldn’t remember where I lived.

Yesterday was an awful day with PCOS pains. I won’t gross you out with details. But I spent most of the day in bed and slept. That’s all you can do on those days. I have about one or two out of the entire month. I took a pain pill last night before bed and…
