I Am the Desert June 17, 2012

Posted by icelikediamonds in Uncategorized.


That is the word I would use to describe myself over these past few weeks. I’m searching for something. . . and I don’t know what. Nothing satisfies me.

I am the desert.

My thirst is unquenchable.

Television,movies, music, yoga, games, cooking, eating, shopping, sports, reading, writing. . . although some of these things provide momentary distraction – that is all they provide. It all feels empty.I want something I need something more. . and I don’t know what it is! I can’t even sleep.  Granted, it’s not unusual for me to have trouble sleeping, in fact, it’s unusual for me not to have trouble sleeping. But, it’s become 10x worse. I’ve tried teas, warm baths, relaxation exercises, counting sheep and other things, herbal remedies, presecription medication. . . Nothing works. I am forced to be awake. Awake and restless. What is missing??!
