Morning Sickness

I need to produce a masterpiece,
To ‘make up’ for all of the struggles,
And lost times :P,

No not really,
But I need to write something nice, now;

β€”I woke up from extended nightmares,
About undiscovered parking tickets,
And criticism from my dad,

Having to ask for money,
And defend myself again,

Whilst protecting myself,
From worsening rumination;

I screamed, repeatedly,
β€”Whilst picking up envelopes in the hallway,
Which my housemates heard,
And judged,

β€”In frustration at my dad,
For his misunderstanding,
Lack of empathy,
And taunting,

Whilst already hurting;

Now I’m listening to ‘Peaceful Piano’,
Through my headphones,
Which blocks out the noise of creaking floorboards,
And crushing of baby’s skulls;

It doesn’t, really,
Not unless I turn the volume right up;

And it doesn’t matter, what time I get up,
β€”My nerves are jangled, by this incessant noise!

But never mind,
β€”For although the nightmares,
Got me overthinking,
And ruminating,
And ritualising,

I’ve remembered the golden rule:
Nothing worth repeating,
Is ever worth it,

And simply the more I believe and practice that,
The easier,
It will get!

It’s a wonderful feeling to be free!

    1. Thanks so much! I’m usually hesitant to investigate these things because of money issues, and because I’ve had so many suggestions over time, that if I was going to spare extra money on any of them, it’s impossible to have any perspective on which to start researching.

      But I just looked into this and it looks very promising! I can get some nearby from an Asdaβ€” I’m going to get some as soon as it’s open! πŸ˜€ thank you. If it helps I’ll probably get some in root form like you.

      I’ll let you know how it goes πŸ’™.


    2. You’ve opened my mind though and since I’ve freed up a lot of time for myself, I’m definitely going to learn more about natural anxiety solutions. Would be great to get off the antidepressants.


    3. I got the valerian tablets by the way! (Kalms Day). I’ve taken 2 doses today, and will take 3 more tomorrow.

    4. I’m really feeling a lot better now! I’ve been avoiding the tics a lot today, and I’ve stayed busy and free of ruminating for most of the day, writing and interacting with people on here a lot.

      I don’t know how much is all of that and how much is perhaps the new tabletsβ€” but everything together is making me feel much better! πŸ˜„ I do feel like they must be contributing right now.
