Vampire hunt

It’s not even 5AM and I’ve been on the hunt for the past hour. My body itches like crazy as red welts are building all over. The ceiling is stained with my blood from the ones that fed on me, got caught, and paid with their lives. It’s mosquito season and no matter how careful I am or was, somehow the annoying blood suckers got inside. The windows I open have screens and there haven’t been any moments leaving the light on to attract them towards the golden glow. I’ve had them before, maybe one or two, but tonight it is as if a nest hatched in my room. I have grown restless and although I can’t feel them sitting on me, I know they have been there as another spot starts to itch and swell up. Other times you can hear their humming sounds around your ears and head as a warning sign of approach. I know there is at least one more, but I can’t find him. He got away, for now and I can’t have another repeat of the same scenario tonight. I already feel overtired and sick, I’m in for what might be a long day.

There, one followed the light into the kitchen and this time he didn’t get away. Perhaps I give sleep another try…wish me luck.

Well, before this actually got to post there was another in my room, and yet another that got away. I think I might have broke a wooden panel from my Lattenrost (Boxspring), and I am giving up on sleep for tonight, sipping my morning coffee at 6:27 AM.

Hello Tuesday….


Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

    1. 😔 a dear friend recommended a product called skin so soft from Avon. I heard about it before and even remember how the bottle looks like, but didn’t realize it would help with mosquitos. I’m in it lol


      1. Yes my gardening friends in scotland use it. It really helps apparently! I’m still itching!

        Then this morning I stuck my hand in a package that arrived in the post – before remembering someone had posted me some cactus cuttings! My hand is having a rough week! X

  1. Unfortunate Rhapsody. The bitey things are hatching out of sequence to the bird nesting, so more of us are experiencing bites. For me it has been only the odd mosquito, but deer flies and midges have been having their fun. I have itchy bites all over the place. Vampires indeed!😞

  2. Oh, my dear, I hope you got some soothing cream to put on those bites? It really helps. Apart from a great big net, I was telling Kris on one of her posts, there is this amazing moisturising oil made by Avon called Skin So Soft Original Dry Oil Spray, its really cheap, isn’t really for mossies so isn’t all chemically and I heard the British army and wildlife rangers swear by it. I’ve been using the old version of this for years and its the only thing that actually works. As its a moisturiser, its a joy to cover your body in too. Only, thing, not sure if Avon is a UK thing only…? Good luck, I hope you find a way to beat the little suckers. xx

    1. Thank you Amanda, I have used it before, just didn’t realize it would help with mosquitos and know exactly what the bottle looks like. I checked and can order it through amazon. Thank you so much, it really is a pain in the rear and they looove my blood for some reason.


      1. Skin So Soft do lots of products and only one has the secret mossie-hating ingredient, make sure you get the right one. It’s all the goodness in you they are after, my lovely one. xx
