Take a breath and answer this please
As we say goodbye to Halloween and start counting down to Christmas, I want to know how you are. Not your spouse/partner, not your kids or skiddos. Not the BM/BD/parent from hades. You. How are you? How is your mental state? What are you up to?
When people ask us "how are you" we often reply with "fine" (which is never actually fine) or "good" (which is usually not actually good). Or we give a narrative on the hubby/wifey, kids and kinfolk. So I'm asking YOU how YOU are. How's the state of your heart and head? What is up w/ YOU?
I'll try to reply to every reply as I box up Halloween today.
Me? I'm good, but I do mean mostly good. Having a few health issues. Large amount of weight lost for no reason, liver #s worrisome. But I'm seeing my Dr and going for every other weekly blood work until I can see a specialist in Januray and that's a quick appt. Other than that I'm mostly happy. A few hiccups, my brother has gone silent again which means he jumped off his sober wagon and is probably drinking again. That really sucks but it's his path not mine and I can only do so much. I'm seriously considering becoming a volunteer w/ hospice. When my mom was on hospice at her nursing home and I had to go home to get some sleep and eat, they had a volunteer coordinated w/ my schedule so mom was never alone. I think I'd like to do that for someone else's family as kind of a pay it back thing.
So back to you... how are YOU?
