I know that we are nearing the end of November. I also know I haven’t posted in a while. The last few weeks have been challenging due to trigeminal flare-ups, our truck dying (yes, we share one vehicle) and Frank’s father having major surgery. It seems as though everything happened all at once.
When my life gets overwhelming, my disorder pretty much takes the wheel; It renders me almost useless. My brain triggers fast in a constant effort to reset itself. Concentration becomes challenging. The nausea wakes me from a dead sleep at 4:30 in the morning, forcing me out in to the cold for some medical cannabis because I live in a non-smoking building, even on the balconies, and I adhere to their little rules. I sleep in because I come back to bed for a few hours. Some days I spend the day in bed or on the couch. Most days I go to my friend Mia’s place because I can use indoors there.
This is my life. All winter. I try to stay positive. I try to keep my blog and Facebook posts up beat and I try to be expedient. But it is really hard for me to get stuff done when all of this is happening. I try to show the good stuff. Because trust me, you DO NOT want to see me at 4:30. Not. Hot. I will try to bring you the amazing stuff I have as quickly as I can. Thanks for hanging in. I have some really great stuff I’m working on.
Social media is easy to maintain. Why? It’s a few hundred characters. It’s a share or a retweet. Sometimes a sarcastic comment. Putting 2000 words together takes more effort than I have some days. My social media efforts paid off this week though. One of my tweets showed up on The Voice:
It is no secret that I am a huge fan of the show. Chloe Kohanski and Red Marlow are both on Team Blake and I am a huge fan of them both. But last night, Chloe stole the show with her performance of “Total Eclipse Of The Heart”. I mean…WOW. I’m going to watch the lives, but I think after tonight I’ll be able to make a top 3 prediction.
Thanks again for hanging in guys. I’ll have something new up soon!
