Small Beginnings


I don't like to complain about my chronic pain, at least, I really, really hope I don't complain to much about it. Lately though, this past month, it is as though someone turned a dial up a few notches. The pain and the fatigue has just been utterly exhausting. During these times, it is very hard to keep my eyes focused firmly on the goal at the end of the tunnel -- wherever and whenever that end may be. So, sometimes when I get stuck in this sort of hole I find it good to look backward as I try to stumble forward.

Farewell House...

I'm sitting in my very scarce office as I write this. A couple boxes remain scattered around me, and my computer. The room echoes when I speak now. A single picture hangs on the nearby wall. I rather dread the moment I have to remove it, as it almost feels as though the moment I do, it will be the end of an era within this house that has been the creation of many wondrous memories.

Annie McCaffrey was a huge influence as I was growing up - especially in regards to her female heroines in a time that I felt like I was being swamped by heroines I could not relate to, I found solace in her amazingly well crafted female characters that I could relate to. I owe her much for helping me become the writer I am today.

Dealing with chronic pain and fatigue is a daily battle and one I don't think I will ever get better at. While I learn new tricks and I gain a better understanding of my body, I am continuously left without an answer as to what causes headaches, migraines, fatigue and pain to arise -- when some days I may be running on a seventy percent battery and other days that battery will be entirely empty with no hope of recharge. I have come to an understanding -- it isn't my fault, it isn't anything *I* do -- One week I may be alright, I'll be able to pick up a bit more of my ropes and I think "wow, this is great, I can do a bit more! Sweet!" and then...wham...I'm back, slumping again and it's like a brick wall has collided with all my hopes and dreams and I am left pondering the mayhem of the universe.
