How do you stay busy?


images (14)Lately, I have been focused on staying busy. This morning I abruptly tore my fridge apart, cleaned it inside and out, then I folded laundry and put it away to sweeping my floors and taking my dogs out. Oh and go grocery shopping which I forget vegetables and cat food *insert palm to head*.

Some days I am like this, I don’t know if it is mania or what, but its like I am on an engine revved and it has gas that until its used up, it doesn’t stop.

I have come to realize that it is important to get out at least once a day. It seems to make me feel good on the inside. Walking my dogs, increases the endorphins, which helps me feel better.

I’ve been using my Happy Light, it sure is bright and taking my 6,000 I.U. Vitamin D. I think there is some improvement in my mood/depression.

I am most active in the morning, I’ve always been that way. How about you, when are you most active? Do you have a routine that you do everyday? Have you found it helpful?

I do feel moments of loneliness, however, there aren’t any friends around me that are home during the day. So all my time is by myself, just me, my housework and pets. I feel like a 1950’s housewife, I know I could change it, but I know I don’t have the confidence to go back to work. I’ve always started out well, then as soon as stress appears, I start getting sick, making mistakes and less than a year later I’m fired. The longest I’ve held a job is 2 years and I still wonder how that happened.

Tomorrow is my Women’s Sexual Assault Recovery group, I’m sure that I will have something to post :).

Have a great day!

Birthdays, Christmas and BPD


My birthday is on Monday, the 23rd of December, I don’t have memories of birthday parties or presents from childhood friends. Christmas, when I was a young child, I remember family, playing bingo, laughter and memories. Living with BPD, I can tell you that the last few years, I’ve spent alone, sad and depressed.

My spouse is leaving for the holidays on Sunday, to spend it with his family. I’ve put out a request to my cousin to spend Christmas dinner with her and her family.

This time of year sucks, always has for me more so as an adult, on top of BPD, my mood swings have been really severe. I’ve swung from being super angry, to feeling intense emotions on the verge of tears, yet nothing happens.

The only thing that keeps me grounded is my pets, without them, I would be nothing.

Poor Annie! She got spooked on her walk and now she’s missing!


Coquitlam Friends!!! Keep an eye out for this senior girl. Mama helped with a recent rescue of her (last weekend) and she became spooked on her walk. (we aren’t sure what she was spooked over, possibly fireworks in the area) She is new to the area, no ID or name tag are on her. She has a medical condition and is very new to the area. She will be afraid. I can tell you she is a gentle soul, just very scared. If you see her please contact @Susan Patterson 604-722-8550 or your closest animal shelter. Please help us find her. Thank you!

Jingles wants to meow!


MEOW!! Finally, Jingles (dat’s me!) gets to have my say on Caturday! (dat’s what we call it around here, heheh). This is a picture mama took of Moi (I’m the grey and white one with Cinder when he was a little smaller).

Image

So we were wondering, what do all our cat pals do on Caturday? See in our house mama and daddy won’t let us outside! *pout*. We meow and tell them dat their are birds and stuff out here and we want to go and say hello to them. We have watched on that box type thing that shows pictures (mama says it is a tv, whatever dat is), of this cat who chases little a yellow bird. Image

We always meow lots and paw the tv when we see these two! They are so bery bery funny!

Hmmm, we also drive mama crazy with running up and down the hallway bery late at night! She then gets even madder when we jump the wall and bounce off of it. But hey, we have springs that need to be stretched *snickers*. In the morning, Cinder likes to sit at one of the windows, meow for it be opened. Don’t ya just lub how he has trained mama *snickers*

Well, that’s our message today! Have a pawsitively beautiful day!

Meow!
