How Many Years …

I am sure I will write at least another post with this title. Maybe a book. But for now, all I will say is HOW MANY YEARS WILL IT TAKE TO FORGET YOU??I don't know. I'm not there yet. I wonder if I will ever be. *And all the obvious "you"s that could mean are … Continue reading How Many Years …

Nightmares Part … X?

So I have been having very strange nightmares over the last couple of weeks (basically since around the time my flu started). They are strange because they are about an ex-boyfriend with whom I still speak but do not REALLY still love, To clarify that, I love the OLD boyfriend, the one that I knew … Continue reading Nightmares Part … X?

Succinct-ify THAT Sunday!

In my last long post (earlier today!) the basic "idea" I'm driving at and driving MYSELF toward is to try to be "a voice" within the "Chronic Illness Community" that is less showcase-y and less sad. There is already so much sadness and so many bad things we deal with on a daily basis - … Continue reading Succinct-ify THAT Sunday!

What’s the Harm in …

... laughing at someone's hypothetical "expense?" We all do it ... well, maybe not ALL (there are some very saintly people out there ... but I bet they too once DID it!) ... but as a fairly reasonable generalization, we all use comedy as a means of dealing with situations and realizations that might be … Continue reading What’s the Harm in …

Wednesday Wisdom – “Righting Your Heart”

I have been sort of watching (in my "watching way" of leaving shows on while I am doing other things) this Netflix Anime called ピアノの森. It's a little goofy (the attempts at getting the "animation" of piano playing is VERY computerized, if that is a "proper" description), but there was just an interesting line that … Continue reading Wednesday Wisdom – “Righting Your Heart”

I do want to write something up about "9/11" or "September 11" or however you "call" "it." BUT it is crucial for me to do so TOMORROW. So for now, I just want to say that I remember and will never forget that day - I am sure all of those of us who were … Continue reading 11 September

One Minor Clarification

I have realized there might be a discrepancy between how I REALLY feel about certain topics, beliefs, "institutions," &c. and between how I have conveyed said "issues" here. I mentioned in an earlier post that I want to start "clarifying" these matters one at a time because, given the very idea behind this "blog," I … Continue reading One Minor Clarification

That “Friday Feeling” – FANTASIES

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you are all having a great day and a happy and healthy day wherever you are in the world! The weather here is beautiful today - it is certainly a gorgeous early fall day ... but I know the weather isn't quite as beautiful everywhere right now and my prayers … Continue reading That “Friday Feeling” – FANTASIES

“If I Were Healthy …”

There is this little game I like to play with myself when I'm feeling down in the dumps or depressed or just very ill - for functional purposes, I will call it "If I Were Healthy." The idea is that I think back to the days before I was so sick (or, perhaps, the "pauses" … Continue reading “If I Were Healthy …”

Wednesday Wisdom! “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead!”

This one WILL be short and sweet! I had planned out a continuation of "Tautology Tuesday" from yesterday but Imma save that one for later in the week! For now, I just want to talk about something I'm sure you've either heard or said yourself:"I'll sleep when I'm dead!"Now, the general insinuations here are: 1. … Continue reading Wednesday Wisdom! “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead!”
