Daily Post: Dating!

Disastrous

Two years ago I agreed to risk rejection and enter the dating scene. Had it not been a homework assignment from my therapist, I would still be focused only on creating a future that includes a decent retirement rather than designing a life that includes laughter and love today. I was as excited about this as I was of starving myself for two days in preparation for a colonoscopy. The results could potentially be the same, disastrous.  I’d have to expose my innermost private parts and hope for the best. Sometimes, shit happens.

I knew odds were that I would unpack my luggage several times before I met “the one” if I ever did at all. When I mentioned I came with luggage, a date asked if it were Samsonite. If you laughed at that, you are as seasoned as I am with as many gray hairs, lol. I initially complained that…

Who Do You See?

Two Are Better Than One

Good morning, friends!  Happy Monday! For all those who are preparing to go to work, may your day be filled with wonderful surprises. For those who have the day off, are retired, or are enjoying a nice summer break, do whatever brings you joy today.  Whether you’re going to work or not, we all have a job to do. I hope you take some time to discover what it is — your purpose for being here.

We all have a purpose — even those we sometimes ignore at intersections or outside stores, hoping to meet your eyes to ask for a hand out or a hand up. We’ve all had those encounters where we try to block out their seemingly urgent pleas for help. If they’re young and strong, we wonder why they’re not working. If they appear fragile and defeated, we wonder how they got that way. I know…

Book Review – “The Memory Of Health”

Being Lydia!

MemoryOfHealth2

“I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. “

“The Memory of Health” by Edie Summers is a very interesting book. I think she had me from the start of the forward with “Dear Friend”. Why? Because I instantly felt this person wants to meet me where I am.

The 470-page book takes on many forms:

  • It contains excerpts from the author’s journal citing how her health is from day to day, etc.
  • The author has included some of her own poetry which gives a glimpse into how her illness comes out in her creativity.
  • There is some medical terminology to give substance and credibility.
  • And there is “the story”. All through the book, Edie talks about…

Bumble and Tailor–Daily Prompts

Fearless

I have always felt like a fish out of water. I learned to swim at the age of five. And I begin competing at the age of eight. I was a lifeguard and a water safety instructor. So I’ve been around water on my life.


On land I bumble quite often. If there’s something that I can run into, I’ll do it. Bruises will show up at odd times and I won’t even know how the bruise happened. When I started falling in a more serious way about 15 years ago, I had an appointment with a neurologist. She said she had no idea why I was falling. Great!!

And when I bumble I fall spectacularly! One time while I was still wearing glasses, my glasses got all scratched up. That was before I had Lasik eye surgery (which I recommend highly). So I had to buy another pair of…
