And then there was the low

Tuesday morning I drooped.

My these days usually cheerful mood - ecstatically cheerful recently - disappeared and was replaced by that once familiar knotted stomach. The black cloud was so real, its gloomy pressure tangible, that apathy encased me like a barrier of thorns.

I'd almost forgotten what it was like. An old enemy that once held sway over my life, shredding it to miserable little pieces. I am so glad I'm not in that place any more.

Tuesday's decline was temporary; by late evening it had passed.  But its memory and the reminder of how I used to be frightened me. I don't want to go there again.

I need to bounce that's what it is! The weather - and my poorliness - has stopped me getting out there and bouncing; I must bounce. I need to bounce! Let there be bouncing. (And maybe chocolate.)

Oh, that must have been a nasty reminder. I hope you get your bounce back in very large quantities.

Liz, you're a Christian I believe. Therein lies all the succour needed through the bad times. They aren't platitutdes - they work.

Hi Liz

You said to me

"When the impossibility of it all engulfs me I think of Jesus the man on earth and cling on to that."

He's here now for you.

He's here always for you.

Reach out and grasp his hand.
