Apologies

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… wellawake, 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)

      Oh no, summer is my enemy Marilyn. I can’t stand temperatures higher than 20 degrees Celsius. My MS goes through the roof when it’s that warm. I so love autumn and winter, but am always really tired after Christmas and New Year, even when I don’t do the whole party thing :)

    And, I too, hope you are feeling more energised soon, so you are able to ‘ring the bells that still can ring’ (my current mantra, line from Leonard Cohen’s Anthem)

        I must admit, I’ve done rather more this last few weeks, and today I’m really feeling it, so major sit-down periods today! But I do build loads of rest into every day, and it certainly keeps me able to do more than if I tried to keep going all the time

    Anyone who understands what you’re going through really won’t mind you not reading their blog :-) I understand trigeminal neuralgia and I empathise. I really hope you get through this tough spot soon :-)
