It started off with only 3 dogs in bed with me tonight, now I have all 5.
Oh, the joys of dogsitting for my family.
They were giving me space earlier on in the night (as seen in the photo), but now I barely have any room. It's not comfortable. I'm losing sleep, but I hope they are at least enjoying the company.😂

Trashcanman Hope you are well Kayla. Hope you'll check in. You're missed 1mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai 👋👋 Just check in. Hope all is well. ❤️ 1mo
Trashcanman Hi Kayla, please let us know your ok 2w

blondie @Trashcanman @GrilledCheeseSamurai Thank you both for checking in. Things haven't been good, I'm not okay, but I will be. I probably won't be on much for awhile. I'd prefer not to talk about it on here, but as of today people are aware of my situation and have offered support. 2w
Trashcanman @blondie Have you tried the national suicide hotline? I have, no joke many times. I never give me name and I don't have someone telling me all the ways I've done this to myself. It might help, please consider it. If you ever need to talk to someone I'm always here. I know we don't know each we'll be were are the same in many ways. I know you want the pain to stop and I hope it does soon. You matter and are worthwhile. 2w
blondie @Trashcanman Thank you. I appreciate it. Unfortunately it's more to it than my mental illness, that part of it has just made it much worse. I've caused so much chaos and pain recently. I'm trying to make things better. My family called me and had a deep talk with me last night. I'm still emotional over it. I'm hoping things will start looking up after facing them last night. My heart aches, but I know it has to get better eventually. 2w
Trashcanman @blondie hugs, don't be a stranger. Hope things get kinder soon. 2w
blondie @Trashcanman thank you 🖤 2w
GrilledCheeseSamurai I'm glad you have some support and thanks for taking the time to check in. Sorry things are a struggle. I hope life becomes easier for. Take all the time you need and know there are people here who care for you and value the person that you are. ❤️ 2w

Today wasn't a great day, but after a nap I feel a lot better.
I probably won't be able to sleep now, but that's okay. I'm really enjoying my book.
If I'm tired in the morning, it'll be worth it.

Trashcanman I'm glad the nap helped. Hope tomorrow is kinder. 2mo

I went to two thrift stores yesterday and one of them had 2 books I've been wanting along with a "buy one, get one free" sale, so I got 4 books for around 2 dollars.
I also got a nice fuzzy new blanket which is in the washer right now. ?

No Sad Songs | Frank Morelli

I made another trip to the library.
This time with my grandpa and grandma. My grandpa is the only other reader in my family and is probably the reason I've always loved to read.
We got him a new library card and I showed him where the history section was and did my own thing.
I was having a panic attack the entire time, but I pushed through it the best that I could because I wanted my grandpa to take his time. 💜

LiteraryinLititz Sorry you had a panic attack! 💜 Do you know what brought it on? Hope you‘re taking some time to rest now. Looks like a great batch of books! 3mo

Today was quite the day.
A rough day at work, but in the end it only made me feel stronger.
Then I spent some much needed time with my mom. We went shopping for birthday presents for my grandma. I got myself a new lamp for reading while I was at it. And we stopped at the dollar store and I got two new books as well.
I'm pooped, but I'm content.

This book was cute. It was a bit cliche and stereotypical, but I still enjoyed it.
I appreciate the effort she put into researching agoraphobia and trying to show how complex it is. It's much more than just a fear of leaving the house.

3.5/5 stars

The Pain Eater | Beth Goobie

This book was intense.
I felt so entirely connected to Maddy that it scared me. Because she said/confronted what many can't.

"That was what rape had taught her, that was the truth she'd taken deep into herself: that without warning, without any possible way of knowing in advance, catastrophe could erupt out of complete ordinariness and be done directly to her. Anyone who thought otherwise simply didn't know yet, they hadn't been done like that."

RadicalReader @blondie I absolutely adore when a book and the characters are on a relatable level 8mo
blondie @RadicalReader Me too! It actually hasn't happened in a long time. The last time I felt this way was a few months ago. I've been in a reading slump, but this has pulled me out of it. 🖤 8mo
RadicalReader @blondie when you discover a delightful book you honestly don‘t know why you hadn‘t read or discovered it sooner or recommended it more ravenously 8mo

I'm enjoying this so far. 💛
I think my last read got me out of my slump.

RadicalReader @blondie do you prefer physical books or ebooks and why? 8mo
blondie @RadicalReader I honestly used to really struggle with reading ebooks and I'm not sure why! But now that I've started reading ebooks, it's really growing on me. I like that I can lie down and just tap the screen rather than holding a book and turning the pages. I still love physical copies though. Always have. How about you? 8mo
RadicalReader @blondie I like audiobooks a lot never lost the enjoyment of being read to such a wonderful experience especially if you get an audiobook read by the author themselves. I love having the physical bookmarks for books though it‘s the simple pleasures in life I got a laminated bookmark I‘m exceptionally proud of 8mo
blondie @RadicalReader That's awesome! I've only fully listened to 2 audiobooks. I can't seem to keep my mind focused on it it for the most part. I made some bookmarks that mean a lot to me, so I understand what you mean :) 8mo

I got this from the thrift store today. I went to another one and saw another book I wanted, but I had to remind myself of all of the books I already have. This will hopefully be more of a catch up year than book buying year.

RadicalReader @blondie I immensely enjoyed this incredible book couldn‘t read through the chapters fast enough and finding a place to stop never seemed to cross my mind because the book was that incredible 8mo
blondie @RadicalReader I'm so excited for this one. I don't entirely remember what it's supposed to be about, but doesn't it involve an agoraphobic character? I might be thinking about the wrong book, but that's what drew me to it since I also suffer with agoraphobia. 8mo
