Where did I leave off?

Hello again! After the last March challenge, I tried to keep up with the Tuesday challenge but was only able to do it intermittently. As I dusted my blog off for this year’s challenge, I went back and read the last couple posts. The second to last one was bad memories…And unfortunately, things haven’t gotten a whole lot better since then.

I was going to write today about the next trial I did in September that went even worse than the one in the hospital in June, but ironically enough, today while at school during lunch, something happened in my back that put me in excruciating pain. It was so bad that I couldn’t teach and had to have the health aide drive me home.

So needless to say, I don’t have much energy or strength to write a long or witty slice. I instead am heading back up to bed.

I will eventually write about the September ordeal. Just not today. I’m actually really excited to be getting back to blogging because I really loved it before. But again…just not today. Since…I can hardly move…ugh…

See you tomorrow.

  1. One, I totally agree with you about going back and reading previous slices. It’s a mixed bag for sure. Some I was super proud of and others, particularly towards the end of the challenge were…not my best work. I could almost feel it when re-reading my words.

    Two, as a society we need to do better about invisible conditions. We tend to look at people and say “but you don’t look unwell” and it’s really rude to someone who deals with a chronic condition and pain day in and day out. Do you experience any of that?

    Wishing you comfort and respite!

    1. I luckily, at least not to my face, don’t get a whole lot of “you don’t look unwell.” Unless it’s supposed to be meant as a compliment. Like, wow, I can’t believe you deal with that and then have a smile on your face every day and go to work. But while they mean it to be nice, that gets hard to hear sometimes too. Because a lot of the time, it’s just putting on a mask to hide what’s underneath. And for whatever reason…I don’t want to get complimented on that. Lately when I get, “how is your back?” I say, “crappy as usual.” That kind of puts most people off, but oh well. Then if they go further to “but you seem like you’re doing better.” That’s when I add, “I’m just good at hiding it. “
