Spinning and Sinking…

I wrote this after experiencing some weird sensations during my meditation the other day…

The world is spinning. As I close my eyes I am sinking. I can feel the ground below me giving way,as my body slowly gives in to the fog and the weight. Foggy Frog and the Gnawing Gnats are having a party today and I’m not sure my body can take any more of this.

I know I’ve done too much in the past two weeks and I know that has made me weaker in my fight against Foggy Frog and the Pain Gang. I know that as the Pain Gang get stronger and Foggy Frog blows the draining fog further over me, my shield of brightness is beginning to strain. But surely the warmth of the sun and the songs of the birds will help soon!

Without them I may just have to give in for now and ride this party out. Surely they’ll tire soon and I will get some proper rest.

    I’m really sorry to hear that the pain gang isn’t letting up. I can’t remember if you have cut out sugar – I’m on day two or three of no sugar and my pain has lessened a significant degree (to the point where I actually got dressed today – GOAL!).

      I haven’t completely eliminated sugar, but if I do have it I try to make it more natural versions like honey. I don’t use sugar in many dishes anymore and avoid processed items as much as possible.

    I might need to come your way and give Foggy Frog and his Pain Gang a good whacking with my pillow! 😉 Hope you feel better soon!

      That would be great 🙂 I’m trying to find my best fighting tool.

      Thanks, still not a good day. Had a friends wedding yesterday which ended up being auch later night than I’d planned for, so I’m paying for that today even though I think I did pretty well pacing until the reception (should have left much earlier or found somewhere quiet to rest).

        Hope you manage to rest up for a few days and allow your body time to heal and build up some energy. Occasions are so difficult to manage aren’t they, it’s so easy to overdo it when we have planned and tried out best to pace carefully. Unexpected activity is a challenge. Take care and rest up x

          Thanks definitely resting up. I have a few appointments early this week, but other than them I’m just resting.
