Opening the Mail

I get scared by letters that come in the post. I tend to leave them at the bottom of the stairs, sometimes for days.

Today I thought I’d try opening all the outstanding letters, but it is hard.

I put on some gentle music and started. But the first letter was from the bank and it made me burst into tears, not because it was bad news, it was just information on the changes to charges for going overdrawn – I am not overdrawn. It’s just the stress of dealing with the bank and money and all that stuff overwhelmed me for a few moments.

It shouldn’t be this hard.

I am so fragile at the moment.

I’ve got another four letters to open. Wish me luck.

I did the normal things people do - worked in an office, bought a house, fell in love, but my love would not marry me, she left me. After this it all spiralled out of control, went mad and ended up in hospital, more than once. So I changed tack, gave up the day job and became an entertaininer: writing, producing and performing my own one-person-shows as well as songs, poems and videos. To see some of what I do look at And I search for a way to be happy in a world that doesn't understand me, as you can see in some of my blogs.

    I have this feeling sometimes too. Some of those letters from the bank throw so much information at you and there’s no way to tell what, if anything, is actually relevant. I tell myself I have better things to do than sift through that stuff, but then I worry there might have been something truly important in there that I missed.
