I have no idea how this post is going to go. I’ve been putting it off due to not really knowing how to put thoughts into actual words or how my concentration is going to hold out.
My body feels fine, it was a glorious morning and I managed to set off at half seven leaving the boy to have a little more responsability which he handled very well and it seem to of spured him on to have a very happy productive day. My brain and general coordination is noticeably lower making everything a struggle and mixed with thoughts about how the woman and young girls cope has left me with many questions
1. What does their diet consist of?
It’s easy for me to try and get my energy from instant sugar fixes and cafieen. I have a fairly healthy diet but my intolerances mean I stay away from some things such as cereals and grains. What I eat for the rest of the week shall have to be looked at in closer more planned detail to see if it’s going to help my inner fog.
2. How do they cope at “that time of the month”?
I am not alone in struggling at that time of the month, bent over in agony, hot water bottles, snuggly blankets, pain killers etc the list could go on. I’m sure others help those that struggle but it’s yet something else I’ve never even thought of having to be grateful for.
3. What do they do to pass the time?
I’ve chosen not to take my iPod with me, I tend not to anyway preferring the sound of the birds to my play list. But I can imagine the same route can get quite monotonous even with beautiful scenery. I am also lucky to meet dog walkers who are not only lovely but also own some beautiful dogs that I get to fuss.
There is one profound effect doing this is also having on me and that is how I look at the women in our society. I do wonder if they realise the struggles other women have gone through and still are going through for a more equal stand in the world. All I have seen today on some social media sites is women slagging off other women.. Where has our solidarity gone? There appears to be more critisims and judgments than acceptance, help and support. Have we really exchanged it all for materialistic values from industries controlled still by an inproportinate male to female ratio?
As I say there are so many questions going around in my foggy brain that I am far from even thinking about drawing conclusions to any of them. It is though it’s too much to process for my brain which can only currently think the basic “fire bad, tree pretty”
So I leave you with photos from today which has been named as “the squirrel with an erection” honestly purely accidental.
