it is in these times that I cannot deny I suffer from mental illness.

Friday I felt like a deer caught in the headlights of life and yesterday I had a panic attack and Dan had to talk me down.

In case you need an October 2018 we visited a duplex in Verdun, fell in love, bought it , and that meant I needed to sell my huge house on Le Plateau mont Royal.
House is on the market, we accepted an offer, inspection is in 3 days and I am freaking out because I fear the buyers might change their minds and be stuck with 2 houses....

Since then we went on a road trip to Ottawa, Ontario, had a great meal, thrifted but I did not find anything...On the plus side my Pyrex eagle eye is as honed in as ever! I can spot a piece of Pyrex a hundred yards away!

 All the following pictures are random, no real theme here.
My cat Yoda is not a cuddle but suddenly there is cuddle action..

 Are there any old time SNL fans here? If so I am sure you will appreciate
these Ambiguously Gay Duo action figures I spotted in one of my neighbor's
window. I love their sense of humor and would sure like to meet them before
I go. 

 My Dad picked up those 2 Italian funeral ornements quite a long
time ago, I remember them from my childhood. They were in his office.

and now I have them. the beading work is amazing but this is a kind of craft not everybody
is confortable with....

 I have seen this Empire dresser most of my life. It is a thing of amazing beauty
and I was oh so very happy that my BFF Jean-Francois wanted to give it
a good home.
It is now living on the north shore of Montreal.

On a newer note, i spotted these Vintage inspired Pyrex pieces
at the dollar store. I know, I know the quality is iffy but I like the design...
Okay I got one!

And by the I feel so much better, so in control. 
so Que Sera, Sera...what ever will be will be
the future's not ours to see Que Sera, Sera!

so my friends, my faithful readers...if you feel scared, anxious, panicky...
please reach out to someone.
There should not be any stigma about mental illness .
 Most of us suffer from it one way or another

stay safe, stay thrifty

Sweet friend, I am glad you are doing better. I suffer from depression and anxiety and last spring I hit rock bottom. I started therapy and it has helped me deal with the stress and so many other problems I have. Thank you for sharing your struggles. It helps take the stigma out of mental health issues. Hugs!

I think mental health is frankly something everyone deals with. Selling a home is one of the most stressful things in the world - I completely get that. Love your Yoda picture, perhaps its the crappy weather encouraging him to be cuddly lol
