Settle Down

Unicorn

If you read the tips pages on WordPress, they advise that you should never apologise for an absence, so I won’t, I shall simply start with hello again. That said, those of you who have followed me for a while are well used to my absences.

I didn’t write last week, I didn’t even read much. As far as weeks go, it was the worst one in a long time. There was so much going on and things were continually piling in on top of each other. The Mothership was stressed and seeing things under the table, and I was stressed wondering how I was going to extract a urine sample from her, whilst worrying about the fact she was seeing things under the table. I end up walking around with constant nausea because worry turns my stomach into a washing machine.

Imagine a day where you have a shadow and that shadow is constantly talking at you and getting irritated when you don’t understand. Imagine finishing all the housework and finally sitting down only for the door to open and the shadow to appear asking yet another question which means you have to get up cos you need to be shown what it relates to. To finally get to sleep at 4am to be woken the next morning to start the routine of dressing the shadow. I may turn to alcohol!

Work was just as bad, I’m finding it really stressful. I get up in the morning and feel nauseous because I have no idea what I am going in to. I leave work and feel nauseous because I have no idea what I am coming home to. I’m not sleeping which of course makes everything seem ten times worse than it actually is.

I broke down in work the other day and told my boss I was not cut out for the job and that I couldn’t do it. I hate to admit failure, but, that’s genuinely how I feel, my job is making me feel stupid, which in turn is giving my already low confidence a good boot in the balls. He was very nice about it, but he more than likely thinks I am a fruit loop. Ah well if the cap fits.

Phew, I feel better after writing all that and now I’ve left myself with nowhere to go. I really don’t want hugs or kind words or commiserations, I just needed to get that off my chest. With a few nights good sleep (hopefully) I’ll be dead on. Tell me a joke instead or something random that will make me smile!

Missed you lot.

(I deliberated about posting this, because I really do not want sympathy, if it’s this hard for me, imagine what it must me like for the Mothership, but I promised myself a while ago I would write the good and the bad and that’s what I need to do. Better out than in as the man says!)

  1. No sympathy, just a friendly suggestion. Maybe it’s time to consult a doc and see about something (med or therapy) to help manage the stress. Take care of yourself love. If you don’t take care of you you won’t be able to take care of them. <3

  2. Honestly, the lack of sleep thing is probably the biggest culprit for all the feelings. I know that is true for me. Fun fact – the symptoms for Chronic Depression and Sleep Deprivation are almost exactly the same. I don’t know how to get more restful sleep though, I am thinking about going to bed super early to make sure I get enough sleep. That doesn’t sound like an option for you. Hey maybe there is a meditation thing we could try for getting sleep.

  3. Okay, you asked for humour, so here it is. I found this online and thought you might enjoy.
    Test for Dementia

    Below are four (4) questions and a bonus question. You have to answer them instantly. You can’t take your time, answer all of them immediately. OK?
    Let’s find out just how clever you really are.
    Ready? GO!!! (scroll down)

    First Question:

    You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in now?
    Write down your answer.

    Second Question:

    To answer the second question, don’t take as much time as you took for the first question.
    If you overtake the last person, then you are…?

    Answer:

    Third Question:

    Mary’s father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono.
    What is the name of the fifth daughter?

    Answer: (Nunu?)

    Fourth Question:
    Very tricky math ! Note: This must be done in your head only.

    Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.

    Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total?

    Answer

    Okay, now the bonus round:
    There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one’s teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.

    Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself?

    If you actually took the time to do all these, you at least deserve to know if you’re on your way to the same fate as your ships……….

    First Question:
    You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?

    Answer: If you answered that you are first, then you are absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are second!

    Try not to screw up in the next question.
    To answer the second question, don’t take as much time as you took for the first question.

    Second Question:
    If you overtake the last person, then you are…?

    Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person?

    You’re not very good at this! Are you?

    Third Question:

    Mary’s father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono.
    What is the name of the fifth daughter?

    Answer: Nunu?

    NO! Of course not.
    Her name is Mary. Read the question again

    Fourth Question:
    Very tricky math ! Note: This must be done in your head only.
    Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.

    Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000
    Now add 10. What is the total?

    Scroll down for answer.

    Did you get 5000?

    The correct answer is actually 4100.

    Don’t believe it? Check with your calculator! Today is definitely not your day. Maybe you will get the last question, right?

    Okay, now the bonus round:
    There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By
    imitating the action of brushing one’s teeth he successfully
    expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is
    done.
    Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of
    sunglasses, how should he express himself?

    Answer

    The blind person just has to open his mouth and ask, it’s so simple!

    Okay, I want to know how you did on this? Then I’ll tell you how I did. :)

  4. Also, just want to say….I think you are in need of a break. Am thinking you should pop over here and take a breather! How’s that sound? Would be lovely to meet you in person and remind you what life is like on the outside!
