Mambo No. 5 Revisited

(a nod to Lou Bega's song "Mambo No. 5"..... just for me....)

a little bit of Amelie in my life
a little bit of k.d. by my side
a little bit of Rhona's all I need
a little bit of Hillary's what I see
a little bit of Xena in the sun
a little bit of Carter all night long
a little bit of Seven - here I am.......
a little bit of Hothead......Paisan!

Dr. Crusher's warp bubble

"The severity of agoraphobia varies enormously between sufferers from those who are housebound, even room-bound, to those who can travel specific distances within a defined boundary."

for some time(think years) I've had an increasing feeling that I had agoraphobia, but thought it meant only those who were unable to leave the house...... so told myself no, it can't be.

however, the distance I can safely(as in without anxiety) travel has been gradually getting less and less....and the occasions less and less.

yesterday I had one of those lightbulb moments - the episode of Star Trek: the next Generation where Beverly is caught in Wesley's warp bubble, and her 'universe' is contracting.......and that's exactly how I feel.

I had a surf and found the quote at the start of this post..... so, it seems I 'qualify'.......

now for more thought and search for information.......

in the meantime, it's ok to be in my own wee warp bubble: just knowing that will - hopefully - slow down or even stop it from contracting any further......

and even if this doesn't make sense to anyone else(though I suspect it will......), it does to me, and that is the main thing, ain't it?

to be continued........
