Breathe

Anxious

Down the hole I go…

Stop

Try to get out and move forward…

Slide

If I let myself go I would slide…

Invisible

Strings that pull my head..

Pressure

On my brain that seems to weigh my thoughts down

Direction

Spinning

Stop

Willing

Hold on – spit it out – process – debrief – move forward –

I need routine, reliability, solitude

Kevin

I am a mom.  I am a wife.  I am a friend, a student, a teacher…

Get up, move forward, carry on

I fought to be here – now to clear my head to see, to hear, to think

Organize my thoughts

Get up, get up, get up

Carry on

Carry on… move forward… get up

Be still – be calm – breathe – – –

Still waters run deep

About inmycorner

This blog began as an opportunity to tell my Dad's stories. I sat with him and the computer and together we told stories. It was a wonderful way to get to know Dad. He was 9. He and Mom had a wonderful life together and since she passed away a year and a half before him - Dad was ready to join her. I no longer tell his stories but have found stories of my own. The impetus to resume this blog was the discovery that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. Since blogging had been so therapeutic for my dad and I to get through our grief, I felt maybe this would be a good outlet to process my situation. I also hoped it may serve as an outreach to anyone else who is facing this very ominous journey. So far, so good.

One Response to Breathe

    Unfortunately the brain will send you into a tail spin at times. I have experienced this several times and have desperately tried to calm my thought through meditation, relaxation and positive thinking.

    I am not saying that this is easy to do but I found that it was the only way that I could stop the anxiety, confusion, frustration and worry.

    Hope this helps Stacey
