Crazy Dreams, Quiet Neighborhoods, & Migraines

Have you’ve been having crazy dreams lately? I noticed I’ve had an increase in nightmares a few nights ago. Weird dreams that bring out my worst fears. Such as being left by someone I’m close or hiding from someone who doesn’t have good intentions. I’ve only woken up once this week and felt shaken byContinue reading “Crazy Dreams, Quiet Neighborhoods, & Migraines”

Seeing the Light

Double vision is no longer interrupting my days. I can stay up until 1am without my reality splitting apart. I can wake up without objects in my room hovering over each other. People no longer have four eyes when I look at them! I do have a little double on the outer edges of myContinue reading “Seeing the Light”

Comfort

I find comfort in writing. It used to be the opposite. I used to be scared to write things down. Because writing things down makes them real. But now I have found there’s a comfort in placing my thoughts down on the page instead of having them consume my brain. If I can let goContinue reading “Comfort”

How I Stay Sane

Inspired by #IKeepMyselfSaneBy on Twitter. I limit how much news I watch and read. I write every day. I drink water. I read books. I go for walks with my dog. I hang out with my cat. I FaceTime with friends. I do yoga. I go the therapy. I meditate a lot. I color inContinue reading “How I Stay Sane”

Simmering Frustration with Compassion

I’m walking down a trail, the concrete is hard beneath my feet. I feel my legs moving me forward. I cross back and forth from the sidewalk to grass, grass to sidewalk, sidewalk back to grass, then back to the sidewalk, when I pass by people. I’ve realized most walk in clusters, uncertain of whatContinue reading “Simmering Frustration with Compassion”

Some Good News

John Krasinski launched a YouTube show the other day called Some Good News. I watched the first episode and simultaneously laughed and cried. I’ve been relishing in good content as much as I possibly can. Whether it’s cute animal videos on TikTok (links below) or watching late-night talk show hosts work from home, anything thatContinue reading “Some Good News”

A Healthy Balance

I’m not used to having my anxiety come from external forces for an extended amount of time, especially at this magnitude. I’ve spent the last week in my head, trying to avoid the news as much as possible. I have gravitated towards good news, positive quotes, and tv shows while locking my feelings in aContinue reading “A Healthy Balance”

Stay Home Poem

We sit at home and wait to know that it’s safe. We don’t know when that will be. Weeks, months, it’s all up in the air. I go for a drive to relieve stress. The snow reflects off the mountains. People are outside walking. That’s all they can do these days. People in clusters. PeopleContinue reading “Stay Home Poem”

Part Four

Today is World Poetry Day. Poetry is so important, especially for this uncertain moment we’re currently living in. A few weeks ago, I posted a poem called Mantra for the Madness. It contains a lot of the fears and anxieties I had about what could happen. Flash forward two weeks and our society has completelyContinue reading “Part Four”

Beach Day

The sun reflects off the sand and the water, Causing reality to brighten passed the point of comfort. This moment is now blinded by light, As many people continue on with their time. How is everyone not impacted by this brightness? She thinks as she puts her phone back in her bag. Exchanging her phoneContinue reading “Beach Day”
