Thankful for Zombies

Zombies Run App
I had an urgent visit with my doctor yesterday
Her recommendation is to exercise each day
I found this fun walking app
That I can use on my way
Being chased by zombies
Pushes boredom away



My doctor prescribed an antidepressant
As I need more help to act as suppressant
The suicidal ideation is more than unpleasant
I pray that this will work, oh please, my Lord God


Paul is a blessing
He's a good distraction
He comes to the rescue
To change my attention


I laughed at him 
After seeing this picture
I'd even asked if he "got" it
And he said, yes, he's pretty sure

(Yup, he got me with my eyes closed).


I am very thankful 
that our Broncos team won
It calls for the whole state
for a big celebration
Here, we go Superbowl
The game is on


I pray for my kids
Who are now both in detention
I keep them there for now for their own protection
They kept running away when they were with me
So, although I may bond them out
I cannot let them be free

I need a better plan 
To keep them from harm
And also to get myself fit,
Get ready for alarm

One after the other
Them running away
Caused unbearable pain, and so much dismay
It affected me so much in each and every way

I lost so much sleep
I could not function the same
So Lord, keep helping me
I hope and I pray


The walking and jogging are helping so far
And with this, app, again, I made it this far
More than 2 kilometers in thirty four minutes
I can feel the benefit in my mental fitness


I splurge on a new pair of shoes
Which I had been putting off
I did not think I needed it
Now I'm happy I bought it
It feels so good on my feet
It's so comfy, indeed


I can't thank Paul enough
My sunshine, my love
He must be sent from up high
By the Lord, above



Oh, here's another thing
That makes the cold morning jog bearable
My cute lady gloves that
It's so soft and comfortable


Ttot, gratitude

How poetic you are. And in the midst of life's challenges, the rhyme is spirit-lifting. The app looks like fun - whatever it takes to spur you on. Hope the meds help and you continue to see gratitude in life everyday.

The app may be a bit immature but I like listening to it while jogging.

Thanks Ivy. The med is my last resort as my depression is not well controlled lately.

I hope your depression lifts with exercise and medication. Good running shoes help make exercise more bearable!

The most important thing in this post is your meds and hoping that they work. Exercise is excellent too. It's a very positive thing to do.

Have a blessed day. ☺

Hang in there, Carin. As hard as it is to get motivated sometimes, exercise really does help with mental health, doesn't it? Love your eyes-closed picture - men!

I've found that exercise does wonders for my mood, and I'm glad the docs are taking your condition seriously. I hope that their interventions will help you feel like you're on more of an even keel very soon.

It sounds like your older kids are safe, even if they're not where you'd prefer them to be. I hope they come to realise how important it is to keep good bonds with their family though.

I NEED that zombie app, because it's gonna take rabid dogs or zombies to get this girl to run.

sounds like a tough week, but it also sounds like you have the will and determination to get through the difficult times and have some help and support…. and poetry! (I've never even come close to believing that I can write poetry).
hang in there

I put meds off trying meds a few times. I gave in and I am glad I did.
