Empty Spaces

I haven't been around in a long spell. Energy has been in short supply and life has been demanding. Next week I'll regale you with stories and even photos of what I've been doing. I meant to do that already, but while I was fiddling my fingers and taking my own sweet time, life jumped up and bonked my chronic head. I have pnuemonia. That's the stuff where you feel like you're drowning only you're standing on dry land. Not fun

So tonight, Halloween, I'm sitting at home in jammies and robe, eagerly awaiting my next breathing treatment. Woo Hoo. Oxygen.

I'm not going to do anything more impressive than writing this blog entry for a few days while I give the high-powered antibiotics time to do their stuff.

Cya next week. Until then, everybody stay well. Wash your hands all the time. Eat green veggies. Sleep as much as you're supposed to. Take your meds.

Cause we who are chronic know that if you do all the things you're supposed to, you won't get sick. Yeah, right. And now I'm going to go watch something vapid on TV and leave you to find your own fairy tales.

Your blog is an eloquent expose of what it is like to be "chronic". I have enjoyed your writing style and your ability to give insight into something that many people just can't understand. I hope you are recovering from your bout of pneumonia and can get back to lnormal (whatever that is!) life soon.
