Today i crashed and burned hard. Ive never been a great sleeper more like an survive only on a few hours sleep each night since i can remember.. but since april something is wrong. I have had very little sleep since then only averaging 3hours max each night, i have had a constant infection of either sinus, mad headaches to the point my eyes and head feel like their going to explode.. i have been to the doctors every month only to be prescribed heavy medications and its still not getting better. .constant green mucus is not cool nor is feeling like death warmed up. Im over it and today im lucky my mum snapped out and apologised for her shit tantrum the other night cause she looked after my daughter whilst i had a nap or i would have litterally fell on the floor.

I held off putting up my grateful challenge yesterday. I had a great day with the kids whilst mum was out and when she arrived home everything turned to mud..or lets say she had a mental blow out.. long story short she has so much emotional and mental baggage she carries and holds on to from her childhood that she has a ‘poison relationship’ with her father. She’s only been recently talking and spending time with him since september this year after quite a few years brake from putting up with his crap..she’s like a child desperatly seeking to please him wven when he treats her like shit. See he wont talk to me or my kids and hasnt for a few years..I’ve done nothing wrong in anyway he’s just an asshole like that. I dont care tho and let it roll of my back like a duck in water.. seriously tho everyone and everything was fine until she come home and its a verbal blow out and i had enough. I dont normally go off at anyone unless they’ve bypassed my tollerance limit and in the process treated me like shit… so in the end after i went ape shit at her putting her in her place..i ignored her and ao did my kids and dad as we have the theory: why keep biting when she keeps throwing out the fishing line for arguments? Like they say silence is a killer and it stops her shit pretty quick and she ends up sulking. So i didnt post a blog last night cause i wasn’t in a “peaceful mind set”. So…
