    Update: Thanks to all my blog followers. thank you for your patience and being faithful. I feel like I sound like I am making excuses for my absence. I hate I have not had the energy even to follow up on you all liking my blog posts and such. It seems like I am doing okay for a couple weeks and get hit with some other issue within my medical problems. Someday I hope to get back to a normal schedule and the vitality of health with mind and body. Thanks for your patience. You are all the best.

      As you know I do have some of the same challenges sweets. So your not alone. SO happy to see you visit my blog though! I will send healthy vibes and prayers your way. I hope all else is blessed your way. I have been MIA over on my Book Blog as I am deep in writing again two book projects!

      One is my 2nd book and I am excited and blessed to say I am co-writing a memoir with/for a former NFL Pro from the Denver Broncos. SOON I can say who, but not quite yet. I’m happy to see you BACK and I won’t stay away so long! LOL.

      Love & Light,
      Cat

      I hope you feel better, I totally get it. I used to hike & compete in power lifting but just have no idea when a migraine is going to hit now. So hard to keep to a schedule!

      It’s difficult to keep our blogs updated, sometimes our own minds and bodies can be our worst enemies. Personally it helps me to exercise three times per week, it not only shapes the body but the mind to be more disciplined. Despite that, I’m struggling to keep my blog updated as much as I’d like and sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the aspects a webmaster has to take care of. What I’m doing is taking baby steps, I take the time I need to learn the new tricks like SEO, social marketing or monetization and stop worrying about putting content on the blog. Imho blogging has to be a balanced journey between the right amount of struggle, effort and a healthy dose of having fun, learning new abilities.

      Take care.

    #whyistayed #whyileft-Found on another blog-My Melancholia 

    #whyistayed #whyileft.  This author says the reason for staying with an abuser so well, I am borrowing it here.

    I added a bit to the title and hope she will not mind. I give her all the credit. Please stop & visit  her blog. It is very honest and heartfelt.

    I am sharing this for several reasons:

    1. It is good to know you are not alone in such circumstances whether still there or having left.
    2. It may be the incentive and encouragement you need either way to get out or keep on. ( I know I have wanted to give in and even give up after I finally did get out.)
    3. I want to enlighten some folks that ” just have never been there and flippantly say -hurt-fully -even  in meaning well-“Why didn’t she just leave?”  This lead me to :
    4. This is about the 8th time I have left. It is the 2nd time I finally was able to get more than just a room at a shelter. I am finally ready to really “make it work” this time.  It is so hard to get help. It took me 10 months to get a small apartment. I was at a shelter and was told to leave for 6 months;I had to live for 3 more months with the abuser and I am so thankful the place opened up since I almost wanted to just live in my car when I tried to call and get back into the shelter and they would not let me. This was not because of anything wrong I had done, but because I was too costly with my meds. I could not work because I was trying to get disability and my meds were $200 a month. I tried to get Medicaid, but Missouri is a bad place to do that and they messed with me. I am now waiting on them where I am for it again.
    5. I also am sharing this because I wish to let you a bit more in on my life. I struggle with mental stuff. I am a very strong person, but depression from bipolar is a fight I have about 60% of days. I can also have extreme anxiety and just a little wrong thing happening on days I have either can make me want to roll up and hide in a cocoon for hours. I am strong because I really never do this. do not be down o yourself if you do do that. (We all have different temperaments and strengths.)
    6. I said #5 above to lead into # 6 : I really believe that if I had been married to a real gentlemen with a give and take relationship. More as a team and having mercy, grace and love for each others nuances and interests with working together, my mental stuff would have been very minor compared to how it developed with a furious and angry man I lived under.

    Now, you may not know what I am really talking about if you do not read her post also.  http://chasingdestino.com/2014/09/10/whyistayed-whyileft/ So here is the link again.

    Why do I let him destroy me?!!!!  Foto 4 Friday

    How I feel. I was slightly depressed already. I am trying to earn money so I can get out if it comes to this again. I am in the business of setting up 3 places I am selling on. 1/2 of it is to sell stuff I have too much of and do not want to have to relocate and have all this baggage. Clutter, though worth something. I was telling my daughter on the phone how much work it is getting going business wise and he comes in and says “Have you sold anything?”. Laughed and mocked. Added as an attachment to this,”I rest my case!” I know I am the better person and though he is strong and big: I am the jewel and he is a loser., So why does he make my mind and emotions tear up? He is a braying churlish ,boorish Jack ass!

    I tried to find a photo challenge I participate in to get “Two birds with one stone here”, but none fit. did it anyway and feel a lot better for it.

      I’m glad you know that you shouldn’t be listening to him.

        I did for years. I finally discovered it was verbal and mental abuse. Now I know it, but since I internalized and believed the way he treated me for so long, even if I try to repel it and really do not believe it anymore, extreme anxiety and depression slam into me like a bomb.
