Time a great healer? …


I’m going to be honest here as I feel I need to release, I hope you don’t mind…

I’ve had a pretty emotional last couple of weeks and to be trueful I’m finding it hard to motivate myself …

I’ve had to rehome my little lap dog due to having to have my other dog put to sleep for health reasons, my little lap dog would not cope without her because sadly I had to leave them on their own for hours whilst I went to work. The little dog has a lovely new home with dog play friend, lots of laps & human company. He is very happy. My home is quiet and I’m still grieving. I miss them especially my dog that was put to sleep she was the most beautiful dog, ever so faithful, full of love. It hurt to say goodbye. There are times when I forget they are gone, then it hits me hard.

I also had an ugly ending to a fake friendship that I considered real the other day, which still hasn’t settled within me. This was not the right time but then is there ever a right time for dealing with matters that affect the heart and mind? 

My braces cause my teeth to permanently ache, they give me a slight lisp and I’m craving for certain food but if I have I won’t manage to eat them. I can’t chew and am paranoid of keeping the braces clean. This I would normally cope with but it’s just not the right time to have added suffering.
I can’t seem to relax to read, watch a film, play my ukulele or anything that would normally bring me enjoyment.

I know of the sound advice I give to others and to myself but I can’t seem to apply it. 

I feel I have been zapped of my zeal for life.
I need to shed some tears but I have become numb with all the emotion that is whirling around my head & heart. They well up but they won’t tumble anymore. 

The words that I’m hanging onto is ‘Time is a great healer’.

  1. Rainbow Bridge

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    Rainbow Bridge

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that
    pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
    There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run
    and play together.
    There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor;
    those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we
    remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
    The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each
    miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops
    and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body
    quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green
    grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet,
    you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
    The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved
    head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long
    gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

    I found the above on Myspace long ago and saved it. It gave me some peace when I lost a beloved cat who was with me for 18 years.
    The world is full of fake friends esp. on the Net. Remember people can fool you easily
    behind a screen and keyboard. Real life friends can do the same. Try to find a new
    best friend. Don’t blame yourself. People change all the time – that’s just the way
    life is. People come into our life and exit our life. When one door closes, another
    door opens but you must see that open door.

    Interview With God

    Ask your orthodontist about your teeth aching all the time. I wore braces for several
    years and don’t remember having this problem. Braces will collect food particles and
    all you can do is brush your teeth as defined by orthodontist. They do recommend you
    avoid certain foods but most foods can be eaten without any damage to the braces.
    If you find yourself crying all the time or wanting to cry – you may be depressed.
    If you feel overwhelmed – you may need to talk to a therapist or your doctor about
    this. Try to talk to your mom or dad about your feelings. Talk to someone who will
    listen and cares about your welfare.

    ‘Time is a great healer’ but sometimes you need a little help. It’s not wrong to
    ask for help when you need it. I hope something I’ve said here helps you – at least
    that was my intention.


    1. Thank you for your reply & kind intentions of being some peace, I have heard of rainbow bridge the above brought some tears.
      The aching in my teeth is movement I have fast braces, it just is an added pain at this time.
      As for the depression we are quite close friends but I must admit the mum & dad bit made me laugh I’m in advanced years but obviously very youthful!
      Sometimes healing involves being still & allowing the process of emotions to flow in their time.
      I find to write my feelings down a very useful release it is easier here to share as no one knows you but everyone is kind to take a moment of their busy time to listen to my story.
      Thank you again 🙂


      1. oh sorry about assuming your age – I wore braces when I was 12-13 YO.
        But these days, it’s no longer a teenage years ordeal. Mine were metal, and when I played sports and was hit in the mouth with a basketball, I quickly learned that a mouth guard was not optional.
        Well, if i helped you to cry and made you smile, I guess my day was not lived in vain. Depression is a life long friend of mine, so I understand. Feel free to write me if you need to talk to someone
        further. I am a good listener and a super-sensitive. My e-mail on this comment will work. L+L.


      2. I received the age thing as a complement 🙂 yep braces at my age was a big step but they are clear ones but you can still see them lol, it be worth it in the end.
        No you did a kind thing today … Thank you especially for offer of contacting you if needing to talk.
        Kind regards RubyRed


      3. oh good! Yes, you’ll be happy with the end results of wearing braces even though they are a real pain sometimes while on your teeth. You are welcome! Have a good day! 🙂
