hey, CF, that sucks about the food stamps.  my D and i also rely on a food bank in town to supplement her food stamps.  sometimes we get great stuff, sometimes not so much, but those things are throwaways, so we do.  when we move, she'll have to re-register in another state, and who knows what those requirements will be?  so, yeah, i get it.

some of the things i've decided i need for the move are my cross-stitch kits i've never opened cuz i ran out of energy to do them.  also knitting needles.  i love being creative w/ my hands, and i know you do as well.  i think the gift for your bro is brilliant!  love the whole brain thing.  such fun!

i hope you keep going w/ all this.  sounds like something you're not only good at but that you enjoy.  love and hugs :hug:
it all sounds wonderful, NK.  just so glad you're back.  love and hugs :hug:
NK, so glad to hear you're better and will be home soon.  dang, i hate that this happened to you. just glad you're ok.  love and hugs :hug:

hey, PC, i agree w/ all of the above.  yay!  love and hugs :hug:

CF, i'm part of that system, and i think inefficient is a kind word to use for it.  i hate ever having to do anything with them.  i'm glad you got your stuff straightened out, tho.  yeah, script reading drives me nuts.  ugh!

just glad it's behind you and you're on your way to getting what you need.  love and hugs :hug:
also been there, bach, including w/ the back and forth stuff.  my heart is with you as you try to find your 'self'. i get it, haven't had a lot of my 'self' during my lifetime, either.  still not sure, but i don't feel as floaty as i once did, so i think that's a step in the right direction.

hang tough, ok?  hangin' right beside you.  love and hugs :hug:

indeed, it is lovely.  i'm back, going thru w/drawal, just need a quiet, safe place to let my body do its thing.  this is the healing porch, after all, and i just let out a sigh of relief it's here.  i'm sitting in the cabin off to the side of the original porch, listening to the birds and insects, breeze thru the trees, a lovely fire, and a book i haven't read in a while. mmmm . . .

blueberry, i understand the teeter totter thing about accomplishing a lot one day, wiped out the next.  i think you're doing a lot, and a big yay! for your meditation practice.  even if you don't do it every day, each day that you manage it means something pos. for you, and that's a good thing, right?  keep going, one foot in front of the other.  we got this.

lots to unpack in your conversion order thread. interesting. i looked it up. i can relate to some of it. love and hugs :hug:

hope, that's a lot of info on our sleeping state and what our minds might be doing during it.  thanks. it makes sense.  i'm glad your partner has noted you've not been having so many so intensely of late.  sorry you have to go thru this at all.  i hope it continues to get better as your mind continues to make progress thru it all.  i think your routine might be helping as well. keep up the good work!  love and hugs :hug:

personally, blueberry, that's kind of a pet peeve for me, asking me if it's ok if something's not going to go the way i wanted or expected.  i'm glad you were in a good enough place for it to be ok, tho.

i like this meditation/music stuff for you.  it sounds like, at times, it's very helpful. interesting that when the time shift was off, so was the meditation.  hope you can figure it out.  love and hugs :hug:

just adorable, CF.  it's really cute.

again, so glad you got your disability.  my D finally got a diagnosis that could be what the board/judge is looking for during her next round, which will be in about a year.  i totally get the anxiety about finances - it's one of the reasons we're moving - we can't afford where we live anymore, she can't make enough money by working to pick up the slack from my own retirement stuff.  it's a horrific place to be stuck in, and i'm so glad you're out of it and on the other side.  yay!!!  love and hugs :hug:
