“Where do they go, these dreams of mine? Do they live? Do they die? Do they fall? Do they fly?”
“Most people will spend their lives doing jobs that they don’t particularly enjoy, and will eventually save up enough money to stop doing those jobs just in time to start dying instead. Don’t be one of those people. There’s a difference between living, and just surviving. Do something that you love, and find someone to love who loves that you love what you do.
It really is that simple.
And that hard.” – John Connolly
I believe that most of us crave adventure. We want our lives to make us feel. We crave the bittersweet excitement brought on by uncertainty.
Time, paused between the clicks of the second hand,
Clock on the toilet door,
In front of me
Hanging on every thought in me
I wouldn’t be long sitting on it…
To let, 200 dollars a week it clicked, tick tock…
Said the grandfather clock,
Material from another age, standing in someone’s hall

I have had a lot of time to reflect today. After last nights panic attack that almost landed me in the hospital, I spend most of the day in bed, mostly thinking about the causes of my anxiety.
It’s funny. I have been working toward so many goals this year. I started this blog because it was a requirement for a class I was taking. It was creating my writer’s platform. A place to share the parts of myself that were both as a writer and as someone with a mental illness. It has been an amazing journey for me. The people that have touched my life through their own sharing of their own stories.
I have tried to create a blog much like what The Bipolar Writer in the past, it has become over these past few months something I have never imagined. I had no expectations that this place would become a place to really talk about mental illness, not just my own story.

I have been attending the Gerontology clinic and from there my Dr. sent me to have an MRI with contrast to check for visual signs of Alzheimer’s or senility/dementia. I have been having great difficulty in remembering names – nouns really, both proper and improper and seemed to have failed the test he gave me.
The results showed that there were no markers that would make me a candidate for dementia though there are some long words that need clarifying.
