Day 29 : The Truth is…

I am overwhelmed with the health issues of my family. My son is now dealing with similar things my husband is dealing with. I am so frustrated with this long process. It’s like we just can’t catch a break.

Sunday

Rest

that’s what they say

a day set aside

BAM. BAM. BAM.

If only the thoughts would stop their fire

I shift my weight

I smile

I look forward

BAM. BAM. BAM.

Eyes closed.

Breathe.

I stand

I sing

I sit

I listen

BAM. BAM. BAM.

BAM. BAM. BAM.

I…

BAM. BAM. BAM.

BAM. BAM. BAM.

BAM. BAM. BAM.

BAM. BAM. BAM.

Breathe.

I stand

I sing

I smile

I leave

Day 28 : The Truth is…

If it’s just going to be the same thing, if the struggle won’t go away, if I have to work 5 times as hard just to get through….what’s the point?

Day 25 : The Truth is…

Sundays are always hard for me.

Sunday is the day I have to force myself to go to church, a place I used to feel so comfortable. Now my OCD has me so confused. It latches on to normal doubt and makes it feel so real. I have to fight the voices/thoughts and pretend everything is ok.

I am a fraud.

Day 20 : The Truth is… Once in a while – A #Poem

Once in a while

I feel the need to escape

I want crawl out of my skin

and become something else

roam the wild

see what there is to see

be something different

if only for a little while

a break from being me
