Just Jot It January: Sane


Today 10th  January  is  Sane. The  prompt  is  from  John W. Howell at Fiction Favorites





 All depends on the  amount of pain

To decide if you are quite sane

Are  the  nightmares that  you hide

That which keeps  your eyes wide

Dark shadows creep near

Sanity or fear

Black dog here

I am

    I said, ‘WOW’ and then I shuddered. You are good!

    How do we keep our sanity at times? Writing helps get me out of a funk. How about you?

    I tell myself that the feeling is just temporary and that it will pass.

      That’s a good coping system!

        Self talk. Lol. I’ve been doing it for two years since the hospital. I woke up last night and Emma had turned the heater up. I couldn’t breathe. It felt like invisible hands were choking me. This time of year is so scary for me. I think if I can just make it through the winter…

        Hun, you can make it through any time of year you are strong . I feel similar to you at times when my back is bad and I fear it might crumble. If you need to talk I am here!

        Thank you. I’m ok. It’s the same process now. (Which you know) just a matter of trudging through and seeing if the body will respond. I don’t tell you enough how thankful I am for you.

        Yes keep trudging, and I don’t say enough how grateful I am for you too. Bless the day we connected. xxxxx
