There have been several things that I’ve been wanting to accomplish with this blog but I’ve always hit the usual wall of not knowing what to write and finding a way for my first post to be compelling!
So I’m gonna stop over analysing and just start telling you guys what has been going on with me lately. Chronic pain is a nightmare and today has been no exception to that rule. Specifically for my illness its very difficult to explain to people what it is about without getting into frankly gross detail which people can be spared. Or can they? I’m always of the opinion that people are never going to know what’s going on unless you’re honest about it and what comes from it after that is the other persons business and not yours. It gets complex to explain to people the finer delicates of what this does to someone; not just physically but psychologically. Don’t get me wrong, I consider myself one of the lucky ones as I don’t have to live with it 24/7 only 2/4 weeks of the month. It’s enough for it to be medically considered chronic so that’s the definition I’m running with. I find myself getting more withdrawn and I don’t know if its just what I’m going through or if its a combination of things that I’m going through right now. It’s probably a bit of both.
In happier news though I’m now engaged to Splinter of [http://nevertrustthecat.wordpress.com]
This is it for those of you who are interested in what I got. Its a very unique ring & we’re very happy with how it turned out and in general!
Only problem we’re presently having is with the hubub that comes with getting engaged and the fact that it’s all were going to be talking about for the next two years. Which neither of us are best pleased with, we feel people, mainly family are getting way too ahead of themselves. We have our own thoughts about how we wanna handle it and what we wanna do about it. We know for a fact that it doesn’t matter what way this is gonna go down – we’re gonna wind up upsetting someone & no one is going to be 100% happy with what we’ve decided. But we’ve just gotta roll with the punches with it.
