A Reluctant Walk and An Unwanted Present


My son wanted me to go for a walk with him this evening.  I was lying down.  For some reason, I was totally exhausted.  I didn’t even do anything today to be exhausted for.  I really didn’t feel up to going for a walk but I did want to go with him.  So I used the DBT skill of Acting Opposite To Your Emotion and dragged myself out of bed and went for a walk with him for a few minutes.  He wasn’t feeling well, so we had to come right back home but at least I did it.  I went for a walk, and I’m so glad I did.

On a different note, my daughter gave me a present.  Head lice!  My husband helped me wash it with some lice shampoo today.  It feels so much better.  My head was so itchy and raw.  I thought that we were done with that years ago.

I hope everyone is having a good weekend.  Till we meet again,
