i feel you there, in every pore.

“Pray that you will never have to suffer all that you are able to endure.” —Jewish proverb
Nice moments as of late:
*Giving DJM (my ever faithful GP) an orange and poppy seed cake with the words 'Worlds #1 GP' as a thank-you for the 50 minutes he spent discussing and completely emphasising with my myriad of complex clinical conditions
*Getting unique ice cream flavours with Magnus and Gem Stone - pink champagne, Crème Brûlée and vanilla lavender - and generally treating ourselves to fine food, drink and laughter
*Sewing day with the Drehan sisters - listening to upbeat music, drinking Danish coffee and watching Kate's precise needlework and Maddy's messy switches with equal love and admiration
*Visiting Ms. Mountain and Ms. OH at my old high school - crying with the first and laughing with the second; not realising until much later that I had spent an hour and a half discussing poetry, psychology and travel with complete joyful ease (recovery victory!)
*Replying to Laurel Matilda's emails at my favourite uni café - losing myself in her words and my reply while watching all the funny looks from other customers as I typed intensely for over an hour
“You do this, you do. You take the things you love
and tear them apart
or you pin them down with your body and pretend they’re yours.”
