Summer Break

As a kid I hated summer vacation. It is not to great as an adult either. I am looking forward to starting at a new college in the fall. The program I have chosen is one that will help people. There are no classes for me this summer and I am having a hard time with that.

Dance is over until August. I got used to having class at the college too. I am trying to figure out how to replace it.

The good side it that I get to spend time with the kids. I am not sure right now how many will come to stay. I am hoping all of them will, yet my oldest has been so distant.

Therapy is continuing as usual. I do need to start seeing a new psychiatrist. I am worried that I will not be able to get an appointment before my meds run out. I miss my psychiatrist, yet I have to continue to move forward with my treatment. 

I guess after writing this post I am busier and have more to do than I thought. For this week, I have a break. Maybe I should just enjoy the quiet time while I have it.

Summer Break

My kids have come to the end of another school year. They are looking forward to playing in the pool and other outside activities. Also, they are already planning sleepovers and days with their friends.

Life was different for me. We did not have a pool. The inside of the house was hotter than the outside because I was not allowed to turn on the air conditioning. My room was so hot at night that I really could not sleep.

Then there were the monsters that I lived with. The ones who would beat me until I though that they would not stop. The ones who would put me down. All I wanted to do was to get back to school. At least there I knew what was expected of me.
