Random morning musings

1. People  can read lists, even when they are having  anxiety  and are rushing through  their busy day.

2. Reading  lists helps the brain to become more organized

3. Writing  lists helps the brain  to become  more organized.

4. See I mean say to organize the yes brain It is working very so much

5. Just kidding.

6. Did you worry about my brain or think my cell phone was acting up?

7. The brain needs to be active in order to keep working  well.

8. Learning new things keeps the brain active.

9. Learning things can be reading  about something,  learning a new game,  a craft, a new yoga posture….a new  love position. ….mmmm..

10. Just trying  to make you smile a little and see if you are paying attention. If I had someone to practice  love positions with, then I would not be talking to you guys right now….no offense ….sigh..

If you do have someone next to you in the bed that is sweet ..go cuddle and stop reading  my goofy post..

11. You might already know but I have issues sticking within the parameters  of a top ten list.

12. No….really…I just cannot stop talking…

13. And I think it is funny to go past ten…Yes I can sometimes  be easily amused…

14. And I feel boxed in, when I get to number 10

15. And freeeeeeee  to go beyond 10…weeee…womp…womba woo

16. I am feeling a bit better today

17. Perhaps  this depression  that has been sucking me into a pit of darkness  lately, is beginning  to lift

18. I could  not have written  a funny post last week or the week before. ..or a few days ago

19. This is hopefully  a good sign

20. Talkativeness is usually a sign of depression  lifting for me

21. So is the feeling of wanting  to challenge  things, like ethical things at work.

22. But then….sometimes  doing the right thing gets me into trouble

23. I end up annoying  the ” normals” who want me to stay in my place….and not to incorporate  creative, innovative  thinking  into my work

24. Probably  good I am off today…

25. I need to be working  for myself  so I will be free to think outside the bix

26. And go outside the parameters  of top ten lists….so to speak…

Time for Annie’s Top Ten 10 Random Thoughts

Time for 10 random thoughts ….

1. I think that only people who have been through a trauma can understand. Maybe therapists that treat PTSD should be people that have been through trauma and are also  trained to treat it. These people that have had cushy lives with no horrible mental injuries cannot understand. How can they help you, if they have no idea how you feel?

2. I love veggie straws and I sometimes eat them while sipping a peach fuzzy navel wine cooler. It is a strange flavor combination that I find oddly pleasurable

3. I love my bunny soooo much. He is sooo funny

4. I am tired and want to sleep for a week

5. Facebook has closed groups for mental health. There are some for bipolar disorder, PTSD, domestic abuse survivors , eating disorders etc. You can search tags in the facebook search bar. Type in anxiety, depression or mental illness or whatever you are looking for. Then you click to request to join the group. They usually approve you and then give you the group rules

6. Writing poetry is easy, dealing with live people is hard

7. Sometimes I am afraid I

8. My flute is broken and I want to buy a new one with the tax refund. Then I can play flute for you all 🙂

9. I think that blogging can be great therapy

10. Making certain kinds of lists can be therapeutic. The part of the brain that is involved in organizing and sorting ideas becomes activated. When that part is dominant, the fear center of the brain is quieter. Just make lists about things that are not anxiety provoking. You can list things about your mental health if it helps.

Ideas for lists

1. Lists within lists LOL

2. Lists about what to list LOL

3. Fears

4. Dreams

5. Achievements

6. People you like

7. Favorite somethings….animals, colors, sensations, movies….

8. Question that starts a list “What I would do if I were a queen..” “What I would change if I were president…”  “What would I do if I lived in a a mansion?”

9. favorite post of Annie 🙂

10. Favorite posts of your own
