Forgetting I go in late today, I totally got up and dressed at 4:00. It didn’t dawn on me until I was standing there in the shower.
That’s okay, because now I have this time with you.
I’ve started to get migraines again lately. I haven’t had them in a while. I wonder if it could be a meds change from a couple of months ago.
I forgot that my Labetalol doubles as a blood pressure and migraine med, and my new doctor switched me to a different blood pressure med, taking me off the Labetalol.
It hasn’t been a huge problem. I take ibuprofen at the onset and that seems to help.
I thought I had lots to say, but as it turns out, I don’t.
I could be negative and say something about December. But I’m not going to do that. I can’t. If I begin thinking December is going to suck as badly as October, it might. It’s like a self-fulfilling prophecy.
At least I have some extra money now to pay for my tires, right? That would be one way to look at it.
Also, December 21 is right around the corner. December 21 is the shortest day of the year. I like it because it reminds me there is an end in sight. After the 21st, days get longer again. More sunlight for Leah.
See? I’m not always so negative. I always have hope that things will get better. I always have appreciation that it could be much worse, but it isn’t. No one is without obstacles.
Life is tough. And full of stuff. I can’t take credit for these, they are long ago song lyrics. But I agree. It’s silly to pretend that life is always easy. For some, every minute of everyday is a struggle.
Sometimes I have to just stop and appreciate how lucky I am. I’m not sick. I’m not homeless. I have work. I have family and friends. Support. Love.
I’m reasonable. I recognize the gifts I’m given. Most of the time, anyway. Maybe not always my own.
If you believe in God, or the universe, and I do, believe in something bigger, and believe he/ she/ it is benevolent, I believe that, one way or another, things will work out the way they’re supposed to, for me. For everyone I care about.
Turns out I did have something to say.
