Working out with the creepers

For the past three  weeks or so, I have had a very difficult time. I’ve been maligned, thrown under the bus, and stomped on. All because of who I am. Thats all i will say on that (for now). Great times! While going through all this, I have tried to keep a good sense of humor.  I’ve always managed to laugh off things. I’m still trying. But I will admit, with everything that has been going on, my mind has been racing and I have been distracted at times. I am very much looking forward to Halloween. Guess what I will be! The Mad Hatter. Cause its a mad, mad world. See, I’m keeping my sense of humor. But back to my racing mind. Because of all this nuttiness, I haven’t been sleeping well at all. For a few nights there, I’ve only slept three to four hours. No good. Its hard to remain chipper when you just want to sleep. For the first time ever, I took melatonin. I’m trying to avoid sleep aids. Don’t want to get my body used to that. Thus, I keep going and going. Just like how there’s been no pause to this paragraph. I can’t stop because then I’ll explode. While I keep going, I’ve been trying to maintain my exercise regimen. I work out in the morning and in the evening. I like the distraction of exercise. While I was working out, I looked up and noticed there were five spiders hoovering above me. How appropriate. Of course I would be working out with a bunch of creepers. That’s my life these days. I kept exercising with one eye above. They tried to tiptoe across me bit I discouraged them from doing so. Yet, I didn’t harm them. Not one bit. I believe irs bad luck to harm a spider. So, I coexist with them.  And that’s what o need to do. Now, I’m done with my rant and maybe I will sleep. Maybe I’ll dream of spiders. Maybe I’ll dream of androids. Maybe my nightmares will end.

  1. I’m sorry to hear of the stresses and tribulations you’ve been going through, but you sound like you’re handling it as well as you can. Keep going, and as my grandmother Jean used to say, chin up, chest out! And remember that even Ron Weasley hated spiders. 🙂

  2. I have a similar type of spider in the corner of the ceiling above me where I write. I think it’s from the ‘Harvester’ species. It’s been there for a few weeks now and I can’t bring myself to remove it, so much so that I have started greeting it whenever I look up. Maybe their message to us as we gaze up and stare at them is… “chin up” ?
    There is also a tiny lizard that somehow got in which we sometimes see late at night or in the early hours. First time we saw it we freaked a little, but now, like the spider, it’s become part of the home.
