friday




This week has defeated me.

I've got nothing left.

I went there. I cried all the tears. I scraped the bottom. It terrified me.

I hope to be back next week, one week before spring, with more hopeful tales of life on our farm. But until then you'll find me here, gathering my strength, reading chapters, sipping tea, knitting rows, and looking out the windows at the wind dancing through the tops of the trees in the forest.

Be kind to yourselves friends, and look after each other.

  1. You my dear internet friend, be kind to yourself. I'm sorry to hear you've been having such a tough time. May that space bring you healing and the wind blow those clouds through quickly to expose that blue sky that is always underneath somewhere.
    Cheers Kate

  17. What can we do other than support each other in any way we can, even if it's just with kind words. There are times when your pictures and words help smooth the roughness from my days. Sending you love and light from VT, USA.

  19. Sounds like you are doing the right things to get you to a happpier place. Don’t beat yourself up about the things you haven’t done and can’t do just be positive about what you have achieved, a post no matter how short is still a post! I still appreciated it as it’s good to know others have bad weeks too, we all do. Love from the other side of the world and sending many positive vibes your way x

  20. Only a day ago I was suicidal but today was my birthday (I HATE my birthday) but I turned up, got out of bed and got on with it. I had fun with hubby as we visited cafes, ran in the rain and I felt attached to the world now and then (very rare for me). What I'm trying to say is, I have been at the lowest point, unresponsive, catatonic, suicidal and it just takes one, just one ok day to make life worth the struggle. You will be yourself again, never lose hope. I still meditate for your soul tonight before I sleep x

  27. Dear Kate, thinking of you and sending you hugs and big slices of comfort-pie. Hope you you can regain your strength to come out of this valley of defeat, stronger and more optimistic. I wish you many little joyful bits and pieces that come together as the light at the end of the tunnel.So thoughtful of you telling us to look after ourselves but please hold this thought infront of a mirror or any shiny surface and do whatever is helping you and take care and give your family and nearby friends the opportunity to help you through this.Hugs from Germany

  35. Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future injectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because i have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but i still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Cancer,Hiv_ Aids,Herpes,Copd,Diabetes,Hepatitis,I read about him online how he cure Tasha and Tara so i contacted him on drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com even talked on whatsapps +2348149277967 believe me it was easy i drank his herbal medicine for two weeks and i was cured just like that isn't Dr Itua a wonder man? Yes he is! I thank him so much so i will advise if you are suffering from one of those diseases Pls do contact him he's a nice man.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
