feeling sorry for my pitiful self today as i've been going back & forth & back & forth over wanting to go to the cool Grimm estate/prop sale here in pdx ~ https://twitter.com/GhostAtTheGate/status/841025233238732801 but being too agoraphobic to attend. it's a big event with lots of people & i'm feeling intimidated & can't do it, but it pains me.. we're all big fans from the beginning & several scenes have been filmed at mr dad's shop (see here in my pdx album) ~ http://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/i_love_portland/grimm-shoot-x.html anyway, mr dad says he'll go & look for us :D so i'm here hoping there's something left? a mortar & pestle from the spice shop? skeletal remains? hell, a dead rat prop & i'd be happy.. i haven't been right since we lost tabitha. at first i was so distraught i thought i was losing my mind, then after i was able to sleep for a night or two i felt better, the emotional exhaustion was gone & i still felt like tabitha was here with me, like i was carrying her inside me? then i had to torture my ocd self going over the details of her illness & last days & symptoms, second-guessing my every decision until i was sure it was my fault, my mistake somehow, that caused her to suffer. (it wasn't, i know now.) but then my grief just shut off mysteriously. i don't understand that. it's like i disconnected the way i (toxic) had to years ago with all the kitties suffering & dying all around her. so now i question just what is going on with me.. also i tweeted this link recently to a psych central article on CEN ~ https://twitter.com/GhostAtTheGate/status/839528074987220992 it's just me in a nutshell. (appropriately - a nut) it depressed me. i ponder these things, i ruminate too much.. i realized the way the thoughts that nobody loves me come into my head so chronically it has been a kind of joke, sorta funny, sorta not, you know? but i have to wonder how bent i must be that these thoughts even give me a small slip of comfort when i'm honest with myself, so just what the fuck is that? is it what keeps me safe? kinda? not really. but is familiar? will update later.. so, mr dad called saying they're turning people away because there's still so many in line they won't get through before closing.. :( http://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/i_love_portland/grimm-sale.html p.s. no comments here at the ghostblog in so long, guess this is officially where i talk to myself now.. :/
