Emotional Vampires

I’ve had a lot of questions lately such as:

“Where’s your blog?”

“Why haven’t you written?”

I’d apologize but I’m not sorry.  I was visited by vampires.  Thats right, emotional vampires.  Not just one, multiple!  Emotional vampires were thirsty for my delectable A negative juice and there was nothing I could do.  I was drained and exhausted, to say the least.  By the time July hit I threw a bon voyage party to early 2016 in my kitchen.

Pop the cork, there she goes.

Peace out, homie.

 See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya!! 

An ’emotional vampire’ is any situation, person or event that sucks your precious life energy out of your veins, spits it on the floor and does a little jig.  In the short span of 5 months, I was visited by more emotional vampires than I have been in the last 5 years.  

The crescendo hit in June during what I affectionately refer to as ‘the dark week.’ The rain pelted the windows on my already dimly lit living room and I spent every evening sporadically sobbing while clutching a wine bottle, binge watching Canadian TV on Netflix.

I was ready for 2017 in a bad way but as you do in life, I rallied.  Im happy to say I feel more like myself now than I have in years.  Sometimes all it takes is serious ME time.  When you neglect yourself life makes a joke no one thinks is funny (enter vampire).  In fact I’m happy to say that I’m back at the gym for ‘Operation Get My Glow Back’ and I started my Masters Degree in Business.

You may ask yourself, why hasn’t she written anything?  Well, I’ve been selfish.  All my emotions, thoughts and feelings needed to be kept in the vault (except for my therapist of course).  Vampires can bleed you dry so sometimes you have to preserve yourself to stave off evil spirits…and add garlic to everything.  

Writing uses my creativity and I had none to give.  It’s my only excuse, but this short writing experiement was kinda fun so maybe I’ll be back in no time.
