Long time, no post

I guess my sick leave has extended longer that I expected it to. My abdominal pain has really flared up since the viral/bacterial infection and my sleep has been really whacked, so I've been in a greater fog than usual. High pain plus a slow brain makes me a dull blogger.











Ever feel like you've having the stuffing pulled out of you?

Don't sweat the blogging. Life is more important. Hang in there.

I just miss the blogging part of my life. I miss feeling that spark and connecting with people that way. But yup, hanging in there... I'm doing that. Thanks.

That is an amazing photo. I can never describe my headaches or mental fogginess very well, but now I can point someone toward this image. I'm not very good with words in general, so I'm having a hard time saying how moved I am by this image. Well done, Donimo. You are saying it with images.

Donimo said...

Thanks so much, Michelle. This means a lot to me. Words fail me often... so I'm really pleased that this image says something for you as well.

Donimo, I can totally relate to having the stuffing pulled out of you! Just remember that the most important thing is that you take care of YOU...the blogging will follow when it's right. Living with a chronic condition has taught me that you do what you can when you can and try to to sweat anything else....keep your head up!

Donimo said...

Hobbz,thanks for the reminder. I'm not the most patient person, but I do work hard at pacing myself and trying to be realistic about what I can and can not do vs. what I want to do... as well as doing the reality check about WHEN it is that I can do things vs. when I think things ought to be done. Oh, such a balancing act. Head up, forward I go...

Hey, August seems to be down time in blogland with many regulars taking a rest, including me. Love the picture, says it all. See you as soon as we can muster synchronised come-backs!

Seahorse: I'm glad you like the picture. It pretty much sums up how I feel right now. I have my old dog to thanks for doing the modifications to the stuffed toy. I have a whole bag of his collected "works". I find them very evocative. I'm sure he meant every rip and pull to be placed just so.

Every day. Every single day.

Today is a doctor's apppointment. The first day I will have been out of the bed and out of my home in over a month. It will take two people to get me there. When did life get this way?
