    But I Can't..

    I know I need to just take a deep breath and calm myself.  Deep down I know this... but I just can't seem to do it today.  The woman I love and know like a mother is so ill and had to be taken to the hospital today.  She is home now, but I am so worried I just can't seem to...

    Breathe . . . Please just breathe .

    . . Slowly . . . deeply . . . intentionally. You’ll find me within, I promise I’m right there beside you. On the cusp of heaven and hell, we’ll defy, we’ll learn to fly – this too will pass. Step with trepidation it’s a minefield, but you know this. A life time...

    Just Breathe...

    I just need to breathe and keep doing my part. I need to remember everything will fall into place as it should. I need to remember how strong I am. I need to remember I have angels around me and am blessed. I need to remember to breathe and take things step by step. Breathe...

    I Need To....

    I need to breathe, I need a break from everything that is going on. All the stress, all the problems, all the Drama. I need a break from the trauma that is going on. I just can't take it much longer. I am eventually going to explode, and I can't take it much anymore.

    I don't know where I am going

    but I will get somewhere, somehow. I know everything is moving so quickly, I just need time... I don't have control over everything, but I do need time... Time to relax, and understand that everything will be okay

    Keep Forgetting

    Okay, I know that it's impossible to literally forget to breathe...but I know my breath gets ragged and irregular when I get upset.  And I know that it's hard to think when I'm not breathing right.So yeah.  I just need to breathe.

    You know that feeling?

    When you're just waiting. Waiting to get home, into your room, close the door, fall into bed, and just let everything out that you let in all day. That feeling of both relief and desperation. Nothing wrong, but nothing is right either. And you're tired... Tired of everything...

    I Am Overcome Wih Emotion Right Now.

    The strongest emotion I am feeling right now is a STRONG dislike for someone. Then the anxiety not too far behind.  But that is masked at the moment by that voice in there screaming, "Oh, hell no b**ch!" Better than a panic attack, though.
