Mindfulness

I've been out of sorts lately, for many reasons. One of the big reasons why I've been out of sorts has to do with my weird hormonal issues--see, I don't have a thyroid and the thyroid controls/regulates so much stuff in the body. Round about this time in 2007 I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. I had my thyroid removed and have had to take a thyroid hormone supplement. Well, my presecription ran out last week and the pharmacy where I had been getting my meds no longer took my insurance. So there was a big delay. Blah blah blah, what resulted is my feeling feverish, cold, slow, and cranky for the weekend. It took me two more days after I started taking my meds again to get back to my normal self.

Other things that have been on my mind--money. I need money. Period. I'd love to do low-res teaching, but I don't know how to go about asking to teach for a low-res gig, particularly one that's close by.

Still, other things--one of my kids might need therapy for some sensory development issues. The senses and sensory development is such an interesting thing--imagine feeling everything simultaneously. Or feeling certain things more greatly than otherwise normal. I'm filling out paperwork for my kid. That's been on my mind. And all through it I'm trying to maintain my writing habit. It's been okay. It hasn't been a drain, but it hasn't been easy, either.

I've come to a realization about my "Labyrinth" series. It's about my son. That kind of freaks me out, and I'm not sure how to proceed now.
