My Name is Tess and I’m a Mess

291My Name is Tess and I’m a Mess!

My name is Tess.

My room’s a mess.

There is no border

When you’re a hoarder.

I need to clean this up,

Oh look, a cup!

Shame on me,

I let it be.

To you it’s visible

To me it is invisible.

Others see it if I let them up,

Oh look, I found the pup!

Shame on me, I don’t care,

Make me clean it , if you dare!

    Hmm. It isn’t a matter of “making” me declutter the house. I’d really like to get it done. When I was in better shape I got lots done. Since I’ve been so very ill, I’m not able to do much at all. Are you ABLE to declutter and, for some reason, refusing? Or, is this a task beyond you right now?

      Both, physically it hurts to do much, but I don’t want to either. Double whammy. I am in a weird mood, you are liable to see anything on here. I am manic, enraged one minute and goofy the next. I need an overhaul on my meds I think. Annoying the hell out of dad. I talk so fast and he can’t hear me and he gets mad. Easier to stay away in this mood.
