Redundant - A reflection

  1. No longer needed or useful; superfluous.
  2. (of words or data) Able to be omitted without loss of meaning or function.
superfluous - unnecessary - needless - excessive - spare

It's Bad News I'm Afraid
You've been made 

a haze
empty space
where words were

Of Course You'll be Paid
... sentences fade

RE - DUN-dnt



So Sorry
she says.

Later I thought
outside the daze
I'm out of a job
but I haven't fought 
this long
this hard
to be 
I'll leave dun
and duh nt
take the re

re start
    re view
        re fresh
           re new

Thank you.


  1. What an awful shock that must be.It must be hard to get your head around such difficult news.
    Yet something tells me you won't be redundant for long - your creativity will enable you to find something for you, will allow you to blossom elsewhere. I deeply admire your tenacity and your will to be alive. I trust in your capacity to find a way through. Something good will happen I am sure.

    Believe in yourself dear WS.

    Much love and my support.

    Sky xx

  2. I'm so sorry. It's bad enough when the other shoe falls, but it's particularly hurtful when the shoe is still on the foot that is kicking you while down.
    If you are interested, drop me a line and I may have some thoughts for you.
    Best wishes, Bob

  3. Sky - Thank you for your ongoing support. I really appreciate it and still find it hard to believe...
    Thank you for believing in me. Your faith in me means more than I can say.

    Bob - Another faithful reader. Thank you, as always, for your understanding and your wisdom. I'm up for hearing those thoughts.
    Warm regards

  4. thanks so much for the comment you left on my blog - it meant a lot to me : ) recovery IS possible and life without our demons IS possible! it took me a looooong time to get there, and i still struggle and slip sometimes but finding recovery was the greatest blessing i have ever found! i know you will find it too.

    i just found your blog and am looking forward to reading past posts and also continuing along with you on your journey. never give up because you are worth it!

  5. I'm so glad I found your blog, I'm living with a different illness and I strongly believe recovery starts in the mind. Keep believing and fighting

  6. Jenn - no prob. Thank you so much for your encouragement. I hope to reach a better place too. I look forward to reading about your experience.
    Take care and keep on the road. I'm glad it's worth the agony.

  7. Poetic Soul - Thanks so much for your kind comment. I too believe that recovery starts in the mind. Unfortunately, with eating disorders, the belief is that your head FOLLOWS your behaviours, which makes things very, very tricky when it comes to making changes.
    I should probably write a post about that one...
    Thank you for stopping here!
