Feeling awful, awful, awful. My head is still aching horribly from the concussion I got on Tuesday. I am not supposed to be on the computer, in artificial light, reading, or watching television. But what else is there to do. I tried sketching but that just made me head hurt more. And sleep seems to be alluding me today. Oh well.

The pups are really getting me through. I've been alone a lot which is no fun when I'm not feeling good. But the pups are snuggly and sweet, and Isabelle is barking at squirrels and passing cars a little less than normal, which is good because I'm super sensitive to noise at the moment.

I'm also quite depressed. It's rough going. Each day is a battle. I really haven't been able to find relief in anything. Even in sleep I have nightmares and then when I wake the despair hits me all over again.

I just keep reminding myself to stay put, keep going, and that one day all this bad will wear itself out.

  1. Hi Catherine! I want to thank you for following and reading my blog. I always love to hear feedback from smart readers, and judging by the few posts I've read here so far you are very smart.

    Oh no! about the concussion! I've never had one, but I've heard it can be really painful/uncomfortable and scary. I hope you begin to feel better soon. Do you like playing or listening to music? That's an activity that does not require artificial light.

    Also, happy belated birthday! I'm sorry you didn't turn 29 in the most desirable of circumstances, but I think the rules permit you to put off a real celebration until your brain heals.

    I look forward to reading more!


  2. I do understand. I go through my days with a fake smile pasted on my face, just to make everyone else feel better. The only reason I bother to get up every morning, is because of my hubby and our kitties. Nothing else ever really matters to me. But on most days, that's more than enough to keep me going. Sometimes it's hard to see beyond the pain on the inside. My husband sees my pain, and loves me nonetheless. It sounds like your husband is a wonderful man as well.

  3. I hope you're feeling better this week!


I adore your notes! Please don't be shy! :)
