Sending love and good thoughts.

The nature of my work is such that I can't say much about it. Have moved back into public mental health at a time when resources are scarce and treatment teams that support one another are history. Has always been challenging, but I moved out of it when the support dried up, and have had to move back into it to stay employed. Knew it would be hard. Love my work, but the level of need and trauma among clients is so very high, with little these days from agencies to support the clinician in our work. Feel like I'm running on empty recently. Little protection from "secondary trauma." Draining me of the capacity to be present for anyone. Could use some juice. Thanks.

he is making good progress, thankyou for asking chantylass. he is on his feet much more now and even managed a few stair steps recently.
he has vomited a few times recently but his readings have been generally good, and we think he might have bought on the sick by chewing material picked from changing sheets and nappies, so we have needed to be careful. we had a meeting this week with care in the community nurse and doctor, and his SW about long term and end of life care...........just in case we should get complacent about his myotonic dystrophy, eh !

Soft summer night here. unseasonably cool nighttime temperatures. Reminds me of summer at home in the low mountains of my earlier years.

Beautiful bug chorus. Really ought to take the time to learn which bugs are singling what, as well as when. Or not. Nature's chorus.

We are each of us part of nature's chorus. Part of the beautiful harmony. I feel so content in the brief moments I realize that.

Gratitude to all.

Wendy, isn't "normal" lovely?

Sorry I haven't been by for a while. Hugs all around, just because I like hugs.

Also would like some of the wonderful mojo here to be sent to a young friend of mine named Lauren who is in crisis at the moment. She's suffering from severe depression and I seem to be the only one aware of what she's going through - even though we've never met in person. Thanks to Janie, I've passed on some resources where she can find help, but a few good thoughts, white light and/or prayers beamed her way wouldn't hurt.

Monday morning, a new day and a new week.The sun is out, the sky is blue, mum is knitting!!!! and beautifully too, she hasn't knitted for months but I thought I would try it after breakfast as I think the colouring book and dominoes are not so popular with her at the moment.I am going to risk going upstairs to change the beds and get the wash on.Sounds mundane? But it is normal, joy oh joy I cannot tell you how brilliant " normal" feels!

We had a visit from my cousins daughter with her children at the weekend. Six under 8's what fun. Saturday at the beach hut, bangers for lunch with added sand in the sandwiches, sandcastles and trying to stop the tide! Then a day at our daughter's yesterday with the silliest games in the garden ( photos on my FB page if you care to look? Wendy Ann Simon) I still cannot blue clicky here ! Luddite me.

So a happy normal weekend, feeling so much better , thank you for all your love Rainbows.

much love and mojo all round

We are focussing on our new family member now - our expected grandkid - although my brother who has gone will always be with me. It will be a well travelled kid too, it is currently in Switzerland with its mum who is performing in the Basel Tattoo; she plays French horn with an Australian Army Corps band.

Nigel, thank you for telling us more about your health challenges. It sounds like I should double the dose of mojo I'm sending!

A few months ago I was having trouble with my phone connection to the web. My son came in and set up wifi, which was lovely. Then I started having trouble with that. It seemed to be the power strip that everything was plugged into, so I checked it in another outlet and it wasn't working. Last night I bought a new strip, but I still can't get my connection to work. Using my phone is tedious. I'll read often but post less, and I'll still send mojo, love, and prayers to all.

Our part of Maine got about 4 inches of rain, gnu, but no troubles with electricity. When I'm home we're working outside from about 5 AM until dark, so staying cool isn't in the picture - with the bird chorus at dawn and the tree frogs trilling at dusk, we're fine. Need any snails? There are thousands...our chooks are eating them up! I found yet another active robin nest in the pollarded Box Elder in the peony bed.

Nigel, thinking about your friend Ian... Do you not realize you have continued Ian's legacy of encouragement to the crew and passengers right here on The Rainbow, as well as to me regarding song composition? He lives!

Janie- Despite the heat here, we've had so much rain my Bloodroot patch is still in leaf. Last spring the Purple Gem rhododendrons bloomed twice. I wonder if that will happen again?

Fair winds to all,

Maeve

Wendy. Thanks. As we all know, laughter is the best medicine. So, from a Facebook post... I was excited all to pieces when Dad said we were going to visit Yogi Berra (famous Yankee baseball catcher) at his cottage on Lake Ontario. I was 5 years old.

Most fortunate of men am I that I should have your love & friendship. I'm overwhelmed, lost for words, but deeply grateful.
    Pete's right, the sight loss is normally a very gradual deterioration, often taking several years before one has to face up to things like quitting driving. My hearing loss seems determined to push ahead, regardless. The most recent audiogram showed moderate to severe loss over a wide range of frequencies, taking account of my music activities. Ageing plays it's part, but most of the damage has been caused by steroids. Three years of taking steroids (Prednisolone) for Polymyalgia Rheumatica has caused Type 2 Diabetes, Osteopenia & Fatty Liver Disease. For the sake of completeness,I may as well throw Dystonia & an Anxiety Disorder into the mix too, although I can't blame Prednisolone for them.
      
       I've been avoiding this sort of 'medical rant' for ages, but I'm mad as hell at the irreversible damage caused by the steroids. I can't hold it in any longer.
       With Love to you all, my Dear, Loyal Friends,
                                                                         Nigel.

You're always here for others, and when you give so freely, it feels bad to ask for anything. You have the right to do that, and everybody who reads this thread will, I'm sure, agree. Asking is just fine. You're a good man, and I hope your health (and everything else) goes as well as it possibly can.
