Had the EMDR session Saturday. Rattled the cage again. Lots of dreams and thoughts. Not really making much sense. Things have to settle to see if it helped or not. Feel scattered for a couple of days after. Hard to focus. The dreams are really strange. About things that I just don't ever think about. I am sure there is some kind of connection here but I can't see it.
Not had a chance to see my son the last couple of days. Wish I could have seen him more but I am thankful I got to spend time with him and his girl.
Watching the political storm ramp up here in the US. I honestly don't understand why people think either of the people running for president are any good. I see some good in each but it has been years since we have had anyone that had this countries best interests in mind. I see people being swept up in the BS each has to sling around. I support our president because he is our president but I did not vote for him. I some things that have happened that if I can believe them make me lean in his direction this fall but that is the problem. You can't trust that what you hear and read is the truth anymore. If I just look at the economy I can't see anything that is different from four years ago.......I will throw up if I hear him blame the previous administration again though. I do find it interesting to look at the stock market for the last 75 years and see the dramatic upturn that took place in the 90's. It started slowly but really jumped in the late 90's. If I would blame anyone for the economic woes we have it would be congress. They passed the laws and regulations that changed the banking system and credit card system. The did the mortgage thing with Fannie May and Freddie Mac. They all made money and we paid the price. Syphoned off the retirement $ of the working person. If you remember that is when the retirement accounts started up also. Wall Street saw a way to tap that otherwise unreachable cash reserve that people used to put in the bank and save.
Ok enough with the amateur financial analyst crap.
Going to have to dig deep for the good stuff this morning...
Things I am thankful for:
I worked out
Son in town
Doing what I have to do this morning
Spent some time this afternoon with my son and his girl. Had some lunch. It was nice. I feel bad when he leaves. Every time. That sucks but the time spent is great.
