This has been a brutal few days. I'm dealing with some "stuff" in my life and my stress is high. I'm really feeling overwhelmed and struggling to stave off depression. I'll be OK. It's just gonna take a while to work things out.
I've determined that my financial situation is disastrous. No, I'm not kidding, that is a fact. Since my choices are limited .....I can struggle along for a while yet, then wind up needing to find a way to supplement my income when I'm 70, vs my current 66 .... I decided I should go to work now while I still can without as much difficulty. So I'm off to find answers to many question in the next few days. It may include finding a job in an art gallery or similar business, applying for my license to practice Clinical Social Work in NM, or it could go so far as to make me consider moving out of my beloved home to find a job elsewhere. I sincerely pray it is not the latter. But I can't continue to drain what is left of my retirement funds now. :'(
Secondly, I'm worried about family members who are struggling with their own lives. It is so hard to watch people I love floundering and in pain, without being able to make everything right again in their lives. This is weighing heavily on me. I know I shouldn't be so concerned about others business, but I can't help it. I hurt when those I love hurt.
So .... I may be somewhat absent for the next week or even more. Sometimes there are things in life that take precedence over even the blog and Facebook. :) Till next time, whenever that is.
