Llama Farm

Deviant Art Llama  3 By Lunarstormpheonix Dfa6yz3-

Flora the llama was adopted from @LunarStormPheonix :heart:

2022 was one of the toughest years on record for me. It was sad and difficult, and I felt like I was losing my hope a lot of the time that it would ever get better. We lost both of my family dogs, Tug and Braxton, to sudden illnesses, we had to move my grandfather with dementia into a memory care unit, Seren had a lot of little health problems, and a lot of the time I felt like I was just hemorrhaging money (it was an incredibly expensive year between getting a new roof so home insurance would cover me, Seren's many vet visits, and other various surprise expenses).

And if the next hurdle isn't right after the other then my mind searches tirelessly for things that *might* be hurdles and anticipates disaster around every bend. And sometimes those things that I think might turn into hurdles, do actually turn into hurdles, thus reinforcing to my brain that "oh shit, you better keep anticipating those hurdles!!" It is surprisingly exhausting for your brain to constantly ruminate on small details that could determine what could go wrong next. So, I guess what I'm saying is that my anxiety has been particularly
