I Just Want to Runaway

These last few weeks have been brutal.

Full-on, painful, never-ending, stressful, grinding and exhausting.

I may be slightly exaggerating, but I know I haven’t had much fun lately.

I won’t bore you with all the details – suffice to say there has been lots going on for me at work, a husband MIA due to ongoing HSC commitments, a trip up to the emergency department for Delilah, a mental health day for Gilbert (who has been really struggling lately) and the start of the psychological assessments for Matilda to confirm her Aspergers diagnosis.

The relentlessness of everything has really pushed me to my limits, mentally and physically. I just want to runaway from everything and reclaim my sanity, somewhere other than here…

I have been trying to focus on the positives to get  me through. The fact it won’t be this relentless for long, that my husband will one day be free of his commitments to help me out more, that the holidays aren’t that far away now.

One of the other positives is my love of music and I wanted to share one particular song with you today.

The artist is Jamiroquai (my all time favourite band) and the song is aptly called “Runaway”. The lyrics of the chorus particularly echo my own feelings lately:

I just want to runaway
Turn me loose
Got people around running me down I can’t stay
I just want to get away, I just want to get away now.
Get them off my back today

So sit back and enjoy the dance skills of Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay and the funky beats of this song- I know I will!

Spread the positivity!

  1. Kirsty, I hope things get better for you really soon, sounds like you’ve had a intense few weeks {the stars must all be aligned or something cause I’m feeling the same!}
    Hope your day with Gilbert gives you both strength for the last couple of months of school/year and I SOOOO hope Delilah is ok, that your trip to emergency turned out fine!
    Thinking of you xx

    I hope so much that things settle for you soon, Kirsty. We’ve had a month very much like that, and another to come as we start Samuel’s assessments for ASD. My own health issues have had in the past month 5 specialist appts, 3 MRIs, X Rays, 3 GP appts and 3 Therapy appts for my arthritis/fibromyalgia. And 2 school apps for Xander, pneumonia for him and salmonella poisoning for Joel!

    It has to get better, right?

      Melissa, knowing what you face I really shouldn’t complain! Most of the time I think we can handle most things thrown at us but there are other times when it all feels a bit too hard. I’m hopefully coming out of the other side now – sending positive and healthy vibes to you and your boys too!
