Rainy Monday

Well, New Year's Day started out auspiciously enough, and I'm hoping that I can carry the happiness and optimism from it, through the rest of the year. Personal traditions and superstitions have been dealt with, and my fingers are crossed.

I haven't asked for positive thoughts and well wishes in a while, but I'm asking today. And this time, it's not for me- G. Monkey needs 'em. Needs 'em really badly, actually. She's going away tomorrow, and I'm not sure how long she'll be gone. She's been dealing with a lot of shit lately, and the ways she had been dealing weren't exactly healthy, productive, or effective. (Well, except the therapy.)

Anyway. She's trying to do some things on her own first- will be staying semi-nearby, close enough that I can go visit her on the weekends if she wants. She's going to try to take her meds like she is supposed to, and work on the self-destructive stuff, and keep seeing her therapist, and hope that the change of scenery helps. But if that doesn't work, she's going to let the professionals take over.

I'm not as worried as I have been for the past month and a half, and specifically the last 2 weeks, because she's recognizing that what she was doing wasn't healthy. And she's making changes to try to get healthy. Or at least healthier, and maybe a little happier. So send your positive vibes, prayers, crossed fingers, and atta girls to her. She needs everyone she can get to be pulling for her.

Thanks y'all.

God I hate learning things like this about people I know IRL. That being said, I'll keep her in my prayers.

A stick of incense is burning already on the new Hindu shrine for G. Monkey, that she may surmount her obstancles and have nothing but good fortune.

hope yout nre year was happy. That said, I'm drunk and going to bed as soon as I finish doing darshan for the Monkey.

Hey anon, can you do me a favor? Don't mention this to Mr. Monkey, OK? It's a bit complex, my reasons why, but it'd be greatly appreciated.

Thank you both for everything you're doing. Trust me, she will appreciate it even more than I do.

And sorry for the atrocious spelling in my last comment, but...drunk.

Still remembering the Monkey in my darshan...I'm going to print a pic of Hanuman, the Monkey God, for the shrine specifically for her. He is mighty, indeed, and mighty can't hurt in this case.

It couldn't hurt for her to wear her Hindu birthstone either...

**scribbles note in Hindu studies notebook to ask Leela, in addition to the eight kinds of poverty, WTF a Hindu birthstone is**

So, ET, how doeth the Monkey? Better, I hope.

now is probably not the time, but I got my GBC shirt in the mail today and I am really really happy...especially since a random check also showed up that will almost exactly pay the rest of my ridiculously high electric bill.

She's sounding better- is coming up here tomorrow for a day of "we're not sure what yet", a bad movie, and she'll stay at my house, or another friend's. She's sleeping, and ate the day I talked to her- so I consider all that to be an improvement. :)

Thanks again, Parce, Stephee, Anon, and everyone, :)

Best wishes to the G Monkey, SS. Been there done that, doing it again. It's never fun, but I'll send prayers and blessings and hope all ends well!
