Here and now, I’m trying to make sense of things, including:
- Why my INR level dipped dangerously low yesterday,
- Why I thought to check my INR earlier than usual (thank goodness),
- How it was so difficult to get the shots I needed to protect myself from having such a low INR from my local pharmacy,
- Why I’m doing a better job administering those shots than some trained professionals did last week at a Georgia hospital when my INR was also dangerously low,
- Why some people that I reach out to take so long getting back to me,
- Why the repair of our upstairs bathroom is taking so long,
- Why some days have so many National Day observances and other have so few,
- Why so many people in the USA don’t exercise their right to vote,
- Why so many people get fooled by toxic narcissists, and
- How I continue to remain sane through all of this.
Yesterday, my dear friend Carol and I discussed how trying to make sense of things can lead to magical thinking.
For example, I’ve been trying to make sense of the unexpected and scary medical things I’ve been dealing with lately by magically thinking they might be the the result of:
- my unexpectedly being reassured by a new cardiologist this month that my very unusual heart was serving me very well and should keep me alive for many years to come,
- my not observing the Jewish High Holidays,
- my boldly and confidently sharing my original song “Everybody‘s Somebody’s Asshole” with total strangers in Georgia and getting a delighted reaction, and
- being “too” confident in general.
I’m wondering how you are trying to make sense of things (including this blog post) right now.
Please join me in trying to make sense of my images for today.
Thanks to the National Days website, now I’m making sense of National Seat Check Saturday.
Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “trying to make sense of things.”
Gratitude always helps me make sense of things, so thanks to those who visit this daily blog, including YOU!
