Trying to sleep but they won’t let me
Blood pressure and temperature? Check ✅
Laugh when they tell me “get some rest”
But they keep waking me, what the heck!
My roommate has been yelling since 2AM
I finally called for the nurse
Decided there was no way to sleep
The day just seemed to get worse
Hoping to go home later today
So far, all tests have been negative
Waiting for breakfast to arrive
Praying it comes with a sedative!

I’ll try not to ramble, but please forgive me if I do 🙂
Most of you who have been following my blog for some time know how upside down my life has been over the past year and a half. My daughter had been in and out of the hospital for most of 2016 and a part of the beginning of 2017. She suffers from Sjogren’s Syndrome, among other things, and she’s only 27. It breaks my heart to see someone so young struggling to get through a day that others think nothing of. For those of you who pray, please keep her in your thoughts. Thank you. 🙂
As for me, well, that’s another can of worms. I suffer from Transverse Myelitis and was recently diagnosed with “essential tremor“. To say this freaked me out, is putting it mildly. There is no cure. They will get progressively worse. So, if I miss commenting or liking your post, please don’t hold it against me. My days are filled with trying to take care of everything else, including beginning to pack as we’ll need to sell our home. There usually isn’t time to take care of me, but looks like I won’t have much choice. It’s getting harder to type, so I will eventually need to switch to my Dragon software and go voice to type. I’m so frustrated over all of it.
I love you all, and always appreciate your support, from the bottom of my heart. I haven’t forgotten you. Just be patient with me. I’ll figure it all out. I’m not a quitter by any means. I only know how to fight for what I want and this is a battle I am sure to win!!
In the coming weeks, I will be posting much less than what you might be used to. I am dealing with some health issues, and as you can imagine, my thoughts are scattered all over the place. My writing has taken a hit because of it, and I need to step back and re-evaluate.
I will still be doing Morgan’s #DailyHaikuChallenge. After 219 days I’m sure as heck not stopping now! 🙂 And my Wordless Wednesdays, with perhaps less photos. But my actual writing will be sporadic, at best.
Please feel free to stop by and read past posts, leave me a comment, even if it’s just to say hi. I may not answer you right away (as some have already seen) but know that I am reading and will get to you ASAP.
This is life….and we battle on, and we sure as hell don’t give in. I know I don’t….
Until we meet again..
You may have noticed (or not ), that I have been remiss in replying to your comments, as well as commenting on your posts. I do apologize, but it is with good reason. If you read my poem from today, “Overwhelmed“, you’ll get a feel from where I’m coming from. I apologize, and am slowly catching up with everyone, a little at a time. I am also battling some health issues, which I do not like to dwell on, but have been more of a nuisance than not, and as such, I am away from my keyboard more than I’d like to be. Please be patient with me. I love reading your posts, it will just take me a bit longer.
A side note ~ if you have a twitter account, please make sure your twitter ID is filled in on the Sharing page (settings -> sharing). I also use this as a way of telling you I loved the piece I read, especially when I don’t have time to comment!!
Love you all,
