My last post for the year 2014

Hey everyone. I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. This is going to be my last post for the year, unless there's something important I need to post.

My son (dog) has gotten sick on Sunday and we took him to the vet yesterday and the medication they gave him only made him worse. So this morning my brother took him back to the vet and they did all kinds of tests and deduced that he has a bacterial infection in his small intestine and put him on an antibiotic drip and kept him for a few hours and guess what? When he came back he was still not better, but gave my brother a pack of antibiotic medication to administer over the next few days.

Okay, I'm ranting, but I need to get this out. My dog hasn't eaten or drank anything in over two days. He still won't eat, not even chicken or steak or drink water to help save his life, not even when I force him (which makes him freak out by the way) and now I'm supposed to get this huge antibiotic pill down his throat? The vet told my brother that my son is not a social dog and he doesn't want to work with him, which is why he can't give him anymore antibiotics intravenously. My dog gets along fine with me and my family, as well as our two other dogs and even the cat. Of course he's extra grumpy because he's not feeling well and then I keep taking him to the vet to get experimented on. My son wants me to make it better and I don't know how.

The saddest part is watching him slip away right in front of my eyes and though I want to help, I don't know how. I tried forcing him to take the pill and he flipped out on me. It just stresses him out even more and I don't think adding stress to his already weakened condition is logical.

I'm sorry my last post is so heavy and depressing. But that is why I am ending my blogging year now. I'm going to focus on my son now and hope to comfort him any way I can and nurse him back to perfect health. Even my second round of rewrites will have to wait.

Once again, please have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and please take good care of yourselves. See you next year!

I feel so blessed and honored (IWSG)

I’m not as insecure this month as I usually am. Maybe it’s because I’m getting off a high of finishing my first round of rewrites, which I thought I would never get through or finally achieving my first publishing credit, by having my short entry accepted and included into the IWSG Guide to Publishing and Beyond. Once again, a huge thank you to the IWSG Team for all their hard work and making the e-book possible. I’m among great company and feel so honored.

The Insecure Writers Support Group was created by the talented Mr. Alex J. Cavanaugh, so that writers can share their insecurities and/or encourage others who need support with their own. You can visit Alex Here, or if you want to join us in discussing our insecurities on the first Wednesday of each month, you are welcome to join by going Here.

The past week has gone very well for me and any depression episodes have been kept at a minimum. Yay! Today I finished my first round of rewrites. I'm going to take a few days off before I start on the second round.

How is your week going so far?

Good start to the week

I've been having a great couple of days. My rewriting is going along nicely. I'm not feeling stressed at this point, which is great. Yay!

My brother asked me to limit my refined sugar intake, as it may relieve my depression symptoms and it really is helping. It's just so hard to stop drinking soda and sugary drinks when you're addicted to it. Yes, I'm guilty. And I really have a sweet tooth. The torture! I've even started half-hour walks to help my mood. I hate the exercise when I'm doing it, but when I feel better the next morning I'm grateful. Plus, I really need to lose weight anyway, so...yeah.

Hope your week started off great. Let me know.
