Time on my Hands

Today is an interesting day. Interesting because, unlike most days, I seem to have a bit of time on my hands. There are no extra hours being granted for work. Other than my usual daily chauffeuring, I have nowhere to go. There’s a chilly dampness in the air today. It’s gray and sort of sad and lazy out.

Not Alone.

I guess I write an awful lot about issues I’m having that are related to my anxiety — it appears to be the biggest tag in my cloud.
