Forgive me D.O.C. and Amazon Warriors for I have gone MIA. It’s been 9 months since my last blog post.
I was mentioned in a tweet today, which led me to a blog post written by my friend Ninjabetic, and I am overwhelmed with his kind words. I’m so grateful for the support I receive from the DOC and I’m sorry I haven’t been involved recently, enough to return the love. Oh sure, I’ve shared some items on Pinterest with a few of you. I’ve commented a time or two on Facebook, but I really haven’t been all that active online.
I’ve been off the grid for a while, for several reasons, a few of which I will disclose today.
- I kept thinking over this past year that I wanted to “re-invent” myself, start a new blog, find a new voice.
- It felt that my disease processes were taking over my life and all I ever talked about was a new symptom, a pain, an uncontrollable urge to throw my CGM through a window. . . .you know. . . . Is it not bad enough to have all this going on in my body, and then that’s all I talk about, everywhere, with everyone, in the whole wide world? So, I chose to disappear from the blogosphere and Twitter for a while to relieve some of that pressure.
- I have battled a bit of depression, but feel that cloud lifting, slowly but surely
- I have fought with my writing persona about the need to be positive vs. telling it like it is
I have, in recent days, stated more than once, that I wanted to start writing again and renew those online friendships I so value. But, nothing has really given me the kick I needed until today (Thank you George!) So, here goes. . .
Here I am. . .it’s just me. . .in words.
