"She seemed to come suddenly upon happiness as if she had surprised a butterfly in the Winter woods"
(edith wharton)


Thursday, 19 November 2009

I have decided to take an extended break from Inglewood. Most probably until next year.
I can feel myself slipping into a state of depression and it terrifies me as usually I am a strong person, emotionally and mentally. The past month has pushed me over the edge. I need to find my way through this.

if you would like me to visit your blog please leave a comment here and I promise that I will come by and visit from time to time..

otherwise, please feel free to email me if you would like to keep in touch.

I am also on facebook, a place that I look upon as being totally silly and pointless - a place to escape the madness that is life.

Oh I am sorry and hope you feel better soon. I am slipping to the same place myself, so I will see you down there in the despair - we'll have tea perhaps, then think about how we can climb back out. I will keep up with you via email sometimes. I hope this passes soon (for both of us), but sometimes it just seems like we have to go to the dark quiet places for a time.
Love to you sweet Robyn.

That's exactly what Facebook is, just an escape and a place to be silly.

See you there!!

Yes, be gentle with yourself, do what's best for you and see you next year! And please don't try to struggle through this all by yourself -- I hope you will find a wise counsellor who will assist you during this emotional journey. Hugs to you!

Miss R, Although I never got to know you (new to blogging, I began following you when you took your leave) please accept my most sincere sympathies. Take time for you. We all need that once in awhile.

Hi Robyn, yes, yes, and yes. Please do come and visit. I will also email you from time to time. And yes, I will check you out on facebook. I also think it's silly, but 2 of my grandkids, my kids and their spouses are all on facebook, so if I want to see everyone's pics, I do facebook.

Sending you lots of healing love and light. You will get through this, as you've gotten through hurdles in the past.
Blessings and cyber hugs!

I so understand the pull depression seems to have, it can feel like getting stuck in a jar of tacky glue! I came across a book that might help, it's "The Butterfly Effect", newly released by Andy Andrews, one of my favorite authors. I hope and pray that you are lifted up again real soon as we will all miss your posts and sharing life's day to day happenings.

Janet said...

I think this time of year is very stressful for some people. Take a break and just enjoy life. Blogland will always be here when you're ready.

I, too, am on facebook but I seldom ever use it!

Imogen said...

Take care and rest, Miss Robyn...

Do feel free to drop in on imogenscreativefire if you want a laugh, but no bother if you need to centre and focus on healing yourself and your family.

I pray that things ease up for you over the Yule and New Year holidays.

be good to you...

judie said...

So sorry Robyn, about your stepdad. Your poor mum must be terribly sad. At least she has you. And not being able to see your grandchildren...trust me I know the feeling. I have an ex son-in law like that. I too, am so tired of all the "mess". You take care and have a good rest away from the rest of the world for awhile, and when you come back, maybe you'll feel refreshed, and maybe can tell us about your trip. Hope your holidays are good! xoxoxo

Angela said...

I'm off to treatmentn tomorrow, Robyn. Will be gone at least 30 days, maybe more. Just wanted you to know that I will include you in my prayers. We'll get through these times, girlfriend.

Leanne said...

Annie said...

Big, warm hug to you Miss Robyn. Merry Christmas. 2010 will be a better year for all. I have decreed it to be so. Love, Annie

Naturegirl said...

Dearest Ms. R. I have been busy with chemo so I don't visit blogs as much however it is Christmas and I find myself thinking of the caring spirits whom I have had the pleasure of getting to know through blogging. You my dear are one..I want to wish you peace in her heart and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with New beginnings. love and light aNNa xo

...mmm... said...

Miss R, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your comment. I'm excited to have your join Creative Tuesdays. it is a great way to inspire each other as a small blog community, regardless of our skill levels. Thinking creatively fires up other synapsis we may not use much and can thereby allow us to see or handle thigns differently--well, at least that is my hope, as like you, I have been going through a very trying time this year, with my own share of aches and such, but not cancer. I don't know what else you may be contending with but if my blog can bring any small measure of something to look forard to, to get involved in or some smile than that woudl mean so much. Please know I feel for you and if there is anything i can do, don't hesistate to leave me a comment, publicly or privately.
Sincerely,
Mmmr. Toast.

Hope you had a merry Xmas, Robyn and wishing you a wonderful happy New Year!
