Is it Urgent? … haiku

Yeah Write poetry challenge for March is Haikus, and I attempted my first ever Haiku as a result of this last week… see previous blog post.  Its a Haiku, it won’t take long to read.  Three lines; five, seven ,five syllables.  Harder than it sounds.  I’m hoping for Limericks next month ( #hinthint ).

Yeah Write also offer a non-compulsory prompt and for week #256 “What did the doctor say?”

It took me back to this blog post of mine following a long period of dealing with anxiety, panic attacks and the like and various other physical ailments that manifested themselves as a result. Or vice versa.

Is it Urgent – blog post

When you have mental health issues attending the doctors and discussing your issues is quite a challenge in itself.  My mind would go blank.  I’d feel a fraud, ashamed, embarrassed.  Even the process of booking the appointment was an ordeal.  It often had to inolve my partner for strength and support.

Sooooo, after that lengthy introduction and link to the original blog post and with the appropriate Yeah Write reference… lets have a go at this Haiku challenge…..

Anxious and fearful

Brave the phone; power-crazed staff.  Blocked

“sick?, is IT urgent?”

Rose Tinted Ramblings

I'm Bernice but unless I'm in trouble, it's Berni. I laugh heartily; love wholely and live completely. I write what I think. Sometimes its fun, sometimes its political, sometimes its frustration, or angst. Always its real and heartfelt. I now live in Mid Wales having found a home with my family (John, my parner and Jason, our son) here in Llanwrtyd Wells where everyday eccentricity is celebrated. a place in the UK that attracts those from outside the mainstream and has created an identity based on its quirkiness. A perfect home for someone like me who tends not to follow the crowd, doesn't have a quiet laugh, and tends to speak first, think later! Life has reached a juncture where I have become aware that when you live your life through rose-tinted spectacles, every experience becomes one including joy, laughter, friends, meetings, experiences and great memories. Having always fancied being a columnist I figured why not share my rose-tinted ramblings with anyone out there who might want to listen- and if no-ones out there, why not write them anyway - bit like a public diary - but hey I have no dirty little secrets that I'm not prepared to share....!!!!
