Recently I have sunken into a negative, hopeless, frustrated spiral leading down… I reached the point where I was exhausted all the time, physically, mentally and emotionally… I have slept more everyday and felt less rested.
Lacking energy to do anything more than eat… and make terrible choices whilst eating. It’s a new low for me and I don’t like it. I find myself worrying about work, worrying about home (we have a dead rat somewhere in the attic and as of last night I discovered that there are at least three living rats in the attic/garage).
Every noise I hear during the night wakes me up in a panic, worrying at what point is the rat going to find it’s way into the bedroom. The pest control team came out, they basically said $100 a week to trap for $800 a year to trap and treat and prevent. But I won’t be in this house in a year. At this point… I am not sure what my options really are. As of last night I set traps by myself. I am fed up. I am tired. I am drained.
This is the point like I said where I feel like I am spiraling down.
I find myself talking about things that worry me and my worries seem to be getting larger and larger every day.
I have wonderful supportive friends and family who keep pulling me up out of the pool of worry.
I need to find my sense of wander… I need to look forward into what wanders I will find and explore.
I need to remember that the smell of a rat decomposing isn’t permanent.
