My Greatest Friend In Times Of Need


My greatest friend in times of need,

I talk to you, say what I please.

You help me out when times get tough,

You listen – never say you’ve had enough.

You’re the one I lean on every day,

So I can turn the busy to relaxed, do things my own way.

You take the weight so it’s off my chest,

Of all my friends, YOU are the BEST!

My diary helps me :

Schedule my day.

Divide time consuming tasks into easily dealt with smaller tasks,

Work out different ways of handling challenging situations.

Cope with grief and loss,

And celebrate happiness on days when I want to shout it out to the world.

Some advice if you’re thinking of starting a diary, write until you’re done, then tear it up. It’s a release, as well as a way of letting to of problems. And it will keep your inner thoughts and feelings safe and private.

    1. I started to during a 2year bout of laryngitis. The last 3 months were totally without any sound from my voice. I taught for examinations with direction cards and a notebook. Texted or wrote to my husband and parents. And started writing my thoughts off and on. I started it as a daily habit post a surgical menopause, as my energy level and multi tasking ability changed, and we needed to restructure our home and my workflow to adjust. It’s been a wonderful experience and I actually achieve much more than I did pre menopause. My diary has been my greatest support through it all.

      1. It was a huge change, and it forced us to change our lives and grow in very positive ways. I am quite open about it. I think more women need to speak about menopause 😊 as it helps families know their support is essential for this to be a positive time.
