Right now not much is can happen because of covid 19. With lockdown and restrictions in place, a lot of people are bored, and can't do much. These days there is not much going on.

The exciting thing can be small or it can big. It can be personal or it can be with a group of friends. Whatever it is you can share it here.

My sister announced that she's moving to Alaska. I am happy for her because she's spent most of the past decade taking care of other people. Since the beginning of 2019, we've lost 3 members of my family...and my sister has had to make final arrangements for all three.

Before that, she spent nearly 5 years taking care of my father as he deteriorated from Alzheimer's. I took care of him for 24 hours to give her a break once (I live 3000 miles away from them and was home for a visit.) I was exhausted. How she did it for 5 years, I'll never know.

She is now free to do as she pleases and boy does she deserve it. She's posted pictures of road trips, of places she hasn't seen in years. Now that she's moving somewhere that she's always wanted to be, I'm proud and excited for her all at once.

I saw bees!!! I live in the Western United States and the insects have been missing this year. The crickets have been silent, the butterflies not frolicking, and bees not dancing. Between the decrease in flowers from the drought and the smoke from the wildfire, I have not seen any bees this summer. Last week I was out walking my dog and saw zillions of them servicing salvia in someone''s front flowerbeds. They normally don't bloom this late but it made my week.

My daughter is on the severe side of the spectrum. Yesterday I received a letter asking permission if she could be part of a program for graduate students working towards their degree in "Assessment and Education of Exceptional Learners". I have been told that the class is for those going into the field of teaching and helping gifted children who also have disabilities. My daughter has hyperlexia and was doing double digit math problems when she was 4 (though at that time she was unable to talk).

I harvested veggies and fruits all summer that me and my partner planted. It's a very new experience for us and it's funny how exciting it can be to see a tiny "baby" green bean starting to grow, a honeydew melon getting "fatter" every day, and eating fried pattypan squash twice every week because we planted too many of those. Making preserves, sun drying tomatoes. Laughing about how tiny our garlics came out to be, and how nothing really became of the celeriac. Watching sadly as all the green peas are burned out by the scorching Sun. Listening to jars every morning to notice if one or two is hissing because the preservation didn't take.
Raising 6 baby kittens that we also "harvested" in the garden from a homeless cat that now lives indoors with us and our original cat, both neutered now, looking at pictures with tears in our eyes that the babies new owners send us from time to time.
We made lots of mistakes and worked a lot. The plans for next year's garden arrangement are already made.

You are a good person. Edit. Growing vegetables is mostly a labour of love, but you will reap a harvest as time goes by. To know you've eaten your own homegrown food is a wonderful thing!

OMG! OMG! OMG!
I suffer from severe mental health problems, I struggle just to keep breathing most days. I have PTSD, Bi-polar, general anxiety, severe depressive disorder, borderline personality disorder, and the oh so rare Dissociative identity disorder, with Dissociative amnesia. I have tried ALMOST every treatment available, and have been on meds for years, yet still I have had suicide attempts. I am just so tired... SOUL tired of hoping beyond hope one of them would help, but always been let down so many times. I have reached out for help, because honestly I don't want to die, I just don't want to live this way, honestly it is unbearable suffering. I still feel like I have been beaten down by the mental health system...
So for years I have been watching as hallucinotnic research has taken shape. From the beginning stages where scientiste posed the question "Why did we stop in the 60s? The research was going well, till the flower children stopped it in its tracks. Let's try again." to "Well it works, we watched it on a MRI light up all the centers of the brain, and creates new paths making the brain connect in ways never thought possible. With medication resistant depression, and PTSD" To "What else can this do?"
I remember in my stupid experimental teenage years, I had tired LSD and mushrooms a few time, and every time I felt changed for the better fo AWHILE.
The analogy I heard was "Think of a snowy hill that you have been sledding down for awhile, eventually it forms ruts where the sled goes over and over again; that is the neural pathways of someone with trauma. With Hallucinotnics you finally put a new layer of "snow" to create new healthy neural pathways." It felt like finally I have maybe I finally found my answer...
So signed up for every trial I could get my hands on, absolutely willing to travel anywhere in the world to do them. Everytime I was once again let down. Reason being that there is actually TOO MUCH wrong with me to be accepted for the studies at this point. They needed people with diagnoses of only what they where researching. It got to the point that even my family was on board with this, thinking it would help and offered to grow mushrooms for me. That is not what I want that though, I want the guided therapy that goes along with it so my mind can form the RIGHT paths. So I have just waited for years for it to become widely available to the public...

That time is here and now. Finally I can seek treatment through ketamine therapy...
I HAVE A CONSULT APPOINTMENT TOMORROW! Everyone pray for me that the doctors think it will help.

If you want to know more about hallucinotnic therapy Netflix has a great episode of "The mind explained" on it.

Thanks for reading everyone!

Everyone I got in!!! I start on Monday. 6 sessions 3 times a week for 2 weeks, then it is going to continue creating new neural pathways for the next 6 weeks that will last the rest of my life. I am so thankful

I am disabled and leaving the house is a chore and a joy. I need a cane or walker and portable oxygen to get around. It really is more of a chore but the moving about and fresh air, new sights and sounds is a joy even though for the next few days I am so exhausted that I can hardly move.

With Covid around, I have little to no joy left as I only leave the house, now, to go to a Doctor Appointment-and most of them are over the telephone these days so once a year, thus far.

A few days ago I was playing online bingo at our regional lottery website. I am so lucky that I could have every bingo card and you have only one and you would win.

I won 100 Real Dollar$ in a full card game! I'm still living on that 'high'! AND That is The Most Exciting Thing That Has Happened To Me Lately.
