Apologies must be said for not reading blogs, replying to received comments and/or not posting new work on this blog. Like I’ve written in my previous post, I’m not letting my illness win, but MS is a right b*tch right now.
As always, December and January are hectic months for everyone and after trigeminal neuralgia kept me… well… awake, over-drugged and under my duvet throughout the year, my batteries have sucked out the last bit of energy that was still in them.
I will be back online soon – after all, I have a few blog awards I still need to add on here – and I already look forward to getting back to big time writing and hopefully being published at some stage.
“Embrace each challenge in your life as an opportunity for self-transformation.” (Bernie S. Siegel)
“Illness is the night side of life, a more onerous citizenship. Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick. Although we all prefer to use the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place.” (Susan Sontag)
“I was inspired to write (Life Continues) to tell people dealing with MS or any other illness that if opening your eyes, or getting out of bed, or holding a spoon, or combing your hair is the daunting Mount Everest you climb today, that is okay.” (Carmen Ambrosio, Life Continues: Facing the Challenges of MS, Menopause & Midlife with Hope, Courage & Humor)
