It’s the sticky hold out days of winter here in the OH, and Wee One and I just went through our latest bout of exchanging illnesses. In the interest of science and wanting to make myself feel better, I thought I would experiment with a few untried strategies for addressing a cold.
I had an experience Monday that sent me back down a shame spiral; a spiral of despair and loneliness I haven’t felt in a long time. Am I being hyperbolic? Maybe, but I was really upset.
I am not going to go into the whole experience, but it was the kind of situation that I went to meet someone and they weren’t there. It was actually a comedy of errors with miscommunication and we did get together and have lunch, but I’m reflecting on the experience beforehand, in hopes of finding healing.
