This week keeps rolling the punches

My day was a whirlwind of meetings and running around the shop floor. All of a sudden everything is a priority again and quotes need to be done on time and parts are running late (mostly due to client issues….), yada yada yada….

I left early for my doctor’s appointment and was glad to get away from it all.

When I saw the doctor I gave him a brief summary of what’s been going on with my family and he stared at me in shock. I’m kinda used to seeing the eye-popping expression of disbelief. The look of incredulous astonishment that this can happen bewilders people so much they can hardly speak, let alone even know how to respond to me. How can our government do that? Why on earth would they? How can decide to send innocent people to jail like that? Well…. it all boils down to money and politics, clearly. So hard-working people like my mother, who try to do the right thing, end up getting fucked.

Needless to say he gave me a medication for anxiety. This is for short term, so depending on what happens with my mother’s upcoming sentencing, I might need more medications or a change in them.

  1. I can imagine the doctor’s face when you told him everything that you’re going through. It all just sounds so traumatic and almost too much for just one person. I hope the medicine helps keep you afloat. I have been experiencing anxiety issues after having children and more and more as I get older. Almost weekly I think I should go to the doctor, but haven’t done it yet. I’m functional and very very lucky that my life is relatively calm now, but I don’t know about the future.
    Lots of love.


    1. So far the medicine has helped me sleep, which I definitely need.
      I honestly don’t know how every mother isn’t on anxiety medication. I see my friends with their kids and wonder how in the world they manage it, so you have my sympathy there. Being a parent isn’t easy and although I chose not to become one, I can only imagine how much anxiety comes with that role on a daily basis.
