Day Fourteen: To Whom It May Concern
Today’s Prompt: Pick up the nearest book and flip to page 29. What’s the first word that jumps off the page? Use this word as your springboard for inspiration Today’s twist: write the post in the form of a letter.
There are just so many different uses for the word. It has had quite a history and I am sure a very fine future. It has been used as titles of movies, a magazine, and music albums. There is a whole series of books and many working in the crash test field. The word that jumped out of me on page 29 was dummy. I chuckled as I realized I could definitely work with that. The definitions I am going to focus on is a stupid person; idiot; jackass; moron; and to keep silent; refuse to answer; as in ‘dummy up’.
haha I laugh at you today. Did you really think you could get rid of me forever. You know I may leave temporarily but I never go far. You are a true idiot if you think that just because I have been gone so long this time that you start to think I could never return. I am here to remind you of me. Remind you of what I can do.
What a moron you can be sometimes. You were getting too smaht there for a while. I had to change things up a bit. I came at you working with agitation and irritability this time. Wasn’t I the smaht one? Remember, I always return. I may look different sometimes, but I guarantee it is always me.
I may have stayed away too long this time though. You had time to work on other things. Get better in other ways. Find more support. I am very powerful and will always be able to make you do what I want. I am sneaky and unrelenting.
Have as much fun as you can for now. Because I am coming back. I am coming back stronger than ever.
– See you soon – Your depressive brain
Hey Jack ass,
Guess what. The jokes on you. I see you coming. Too much time has passed. I had time to do things. Time to change things. The biggest thing I have done was become more aware. So aware that I already see you messing around with my sleep. You are trying to fool me by doing it slowly, but I am not fooled. I can see it happening. So guess what? I did not dummy up this time. When I saw you playing with my sleep this month, I got voice to talk about it. I and other folk are aware of what you are trying to do. They all know. They are all watching. We have ways to make you lose control of sleep. When we sleep, you lose your power. We are not letting you get so out of hand that you get strong this time. We will stop you and stop you now.
We are no longer the dummy you thought you had to work with. I played it smaht. I learned new skills, tried new things, became more courageous, and voice worked with mouth to open up. We have the power to kick your dumbass.
Bring it on Depressive brain this is the new and improved, strong, mighty, healthy brain you are messing with this time. And, I have control of voice. Boy, she has loved talking. I almost forgot, we found hope too. We found her and we are not letting go of her this time.
