I'm too old to have a three year old puppy. Puppy he still is. I had him on the leash when we went to the garage to pile the dogs (we have 2 dogs)into the car; The puppy plunged into the darkness and dragged me along with him and I tripped over a can and landed in a pile. It was a ladylike landing; My Dad helped me up and asked me what was the matter. It was a discombobulating start to our trip.

I'm hyperventilating at the moment. I took a CBD gummy hoping it will calm my breathing down. No dice. I think CBD is a lot of hooey.

The trip to the pharmacy was a success. I managed to hang on to the puppy's leash while I exited the car after my older dog, Max, jumped out of the car from where I was sitting.

I appreciate those who came by to check on me. As of today, I'm still suffering my anxiety symptoms. I took my meds early but it's not taken effect yet. Today I'm worrying about our trip to the pharmacy with my two dogs. The puppy is my main worry. You see, when we park in the garage, he's the first one out the door. And I have to hang on for dear life. I have to wait for his older sibling to leave the car and then I get to leave the car still attached to the leash of my puppy who's running back and forth beside the car.Most of the exiting activity I don't see my puppy at all so I have to be sure he's directed towards the door to the house. I let him go the last time we took a trip in the car. He didn't go to the door of the house but ran outside. I ordered his sibling to bring him to heel where I was. It took a while to get his leash close to foot and I stepped on so my puppy couldn't wander away again. Imagine the relief I felt when we got inside the house. That's the lesson that I learned and I'm going to hang on to the puppy everythime we go on a trip.

I'm breathing fast. That's a symptom of Anxiety Disorder. I have thoughts that go through my mind. The only thing to make it go away is to do something. Like write a post, read email,do a small project, or anything to occupy my mind. That's what I'm doing now. But the breathing is still going fast. The other thing is to pray. And take my medicines.

The FedEx man is due to deliver my package today. So I'm up early getting geared up to do whatever I need to do to get my package. It's in an envelope, really, and I'm wondering if they'll need my signature or if they'll put it in the mailbox. I read in Google that FedEx and USPS have an agreement to deliver FedEx mail on the last leg of their trip. If that's true in my case, it makes it easier. If not, then I have to stand by. I'll have to leash my dogs and go to meet the FedEx man to sign their log. This whole issue has made my anxiety disorder go into overdrive. So I've been praying to God to make things go smoothly. I might be waiting all day for the man to show up.

My goal is to recover from my depression and anxiety disorder. I found out that lying in bed ruminating attracts scary thoughts and so I have to get up out of bed and start my day. That way the scary thoughts fall away from my mind. I do try to take naps and sometimes that works out for the better, and I forget the worries that plague me. These worries are trivial to anyone else. But I end up having almost a panick attack. That's when I take my medicine. It keeps the worries and panic attacks at bay. I may never get out of taking my medications. But I have to be strong and courageous.

The Question of Day asks what one word describes this point of your life. My response is: re-maturation.

I'm newly retired. I have to learn how to be a retiree. I enrolled in Medicare. I have my health insurance. It seems that I see my doctor frequently for my depression and anxiety disorder. I have to deal with these two ailments head on. I pray a lot.

In our part of the world, it;s freezing. 'we had a windchill advisory. i lay in bed listening to the howl of the wind for what seemed like hours. I'm lucky that I slept through some of it. Now, a day later, it's subsided and things are quiet. We had a good lunch and took naps.

I started writing again. It's been a slow process.
