Slowly Catching Up

Day 237

I am slowly catching up on comments and blogs, but it will take me some time. I have missed my morning ritual and chatting with my blogging friends.

When my daughter was here, she was talking to me about Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR). I think I have heard the term, but never really explored the meaning.

She uses ‘tapping’ videos to help her relax. YouTube is full of videos like the ones below. ASMR can simulate the tingling feeling many people feel when they hear certain sounds or experience close touch. The idea is to wear EarPods so you can hear the sounds moving from left to right.

Last night I tried listening to different videos to see if any helped me relax or sleep. That was a big no. I guess we each have our own things that bring us peace.

On my way to visit my daughter-in-law, I was rear-ended at a stop light. Luckily no one was injured and the bumper was just a little marred. The man who hit me was very apologetic and concerned about me. We exchanged information and then I was on my way.

No real updates on my daughter-in-law. More tests to come and still waiting on results from others. She is amazing and strong and such a fighter.
