Something New on January Two

Yahoo! I have joined Pinterest. My first and so far only board is of cute animals. I could use the smiles. You see, I’ve mentioned that I’m a worrier in previous posts. It overtakes me way too much. I saw first hand what worrying did to my father. He had congestive heart failure compounded by serious worrying. My cousin’s worries turned into high anxiety and bouts of agoraphobia. It is in my genetic formula. Maybe mine isn’t that extreme, but it’s migraine-fueling at times. It’s also very fruitless. Why worry about things that are out of my control? It makes no sense. I know this on an intellectual level, and yet I let my mind drive me bonkers with worry. How is my daughter’s new job? Her relationship? Is Tim okay? Is he going to get hurt? How about my husband’s upcoming surgery? Is the world safe anymore? Are we going off a fiscal cliff? Are relatives going to talk dreaded politics at the holiday gathering? On and on it can go. So Pinterest is a distraction. I don’t care about followers and “likes”. I just want to save what I enjoy on these virtual bulletin boards and Smile instead of Worrying.

Just trying to navigate a life circumvented by chronic migraines. Sometimes I write about managing with those, but at other times I am prone to deviate a bit.
