Driving Issues and Other Stuff

I was supposed to go get my CPAP machine yesterday, but I rescheduled for Thursday morning (I’m less anxious during the morning). I only drove a short distance to the pharmacy to get my medication and some essentials like toilet paper.

I thought about writing yesterday, but like I said, I was anxious and there wasn’t a whole lot I could think to write about. I did get a call from social services, though. It was a lady who said she was supposed to be off work in three minutes but wanted to make sure I wasn’t sleeping on the streets. I told her I was okay, and that I just don’t have a permanent address and need help as soon as I can get it.

There’s a big part of me that thinks I may do well in a group home, but my ego says I should be living on my own. If I live in a group home, am I automatically less functioning? Or, is that just how functioning I am, regardless of where I live. If that makes sense.

This morning I’m heading to Physical Therapy. I don’t really want to go because I know I have a lot to do around the house and I may not feel motivated once I get home from my appointent.

Yesterday I received a beautiful resin pendant that I ordered from Etsy from Kiti. I absolutely love it! Thank you! I wrote you a note through the “contact me” on WordPress.

When I get home I must do some more clearing out of my room. It’s still cluttered and only contributed to my anxiety issues. I’ve been watching the show Tiny House Nation, which has inspired me to really only keep essentials.

I hope you all have nice days!

Oh, Ashley, I also wrote you a note through “contact me”, so let me know if you received it or the best way to contact you regarding a book.

Until next time,


P.S. – Sorry about the enormous photo. I’m not sure how to resize on here.

I'm a fortysomething woman who likes to write a lot! I've been in the mental health system for decades, and have finally been diagnosed correctly with Schizoaffective Disorder. I like to write about mental health, people, relationships, observations, interests, and more.

When I saw the picture, I wondered right away if that was one of Kiti’s pendants.

For some reason I didn’t get your message, but you can email me at

That’s a tough call about the group home. It might turn out to be better for your overall functioning than if you were to try living independently and end up struggling with it.

First of all, the necklace looks amazing on you and I am so happy you love it! Thank you SO MUCH for linking my shop too, you are the absolute best ❤

As far as the group home, I don't think it automatically makes you less functioning. If you think you might do well in the setting, then perhaps you should consider it. There's nothing wrong with doing what you need to do for you! For me, I know it's hard when I care so much about what other people think of me (I truly try not to), and I also have a lot of stubborn pride. I'm learning to care a little less about what other people may think of me. It's rather freeing. You do you!

Sending love xoxoxoxoxo
