The big storm
Friday, February 01, 2013
We had an eventful week after the big storm created by ex tropical cyclone Oswald, but not as bad as Bundaberg and Rockhampton. We live high on the hills in the Gold Coast hinterland and we had no damage, but we lost power, cells and landline for 38hs.
We had a genertor and gas ring but it got very worrying. Not even close to the
poor people that got flooded, but bad enough for my anxiety. There a lot of people still with no power or phones.
All is well now, but we had another storm last night and the fear of losing power reappeared.
I'm only a month away from my trip to Buenos Aires to see my family, and I'm already getting nightmares about the flight and being there. Trying desperately to live in the present and using mindfulness. Increased my antidep to a medium dose not full, i need all the help i can get.
Many thanks to all the wonderful people that left encouraging messages in my last blog. Will start tracking again today.
