Hi! Hi, I'm still here!

This is a busy week for me - not only is work up, but this week we do Jamestown for Thanksgiving, and I do my food display in the Governor's House, which involves, preparation, cooking, and stuff. The cruise was awesome - I'm working on that post - but it took me three days to recover (part of which was waiting for the ground to stop moving).

In the meantime, here's a post about invisible disability that is resonant with me, because what she describes? Is me. But I am lucky - amazingly lucky and thankful - that I have Bob, who takes care of me, even when I stubbornly insist I can handle stuff.

I'm in the middle of claiming and owning my own disability (my Dr. tells me the pain is basically permanent at this point, and is working on medicating me to minimal pain levels, but we're not there yet), and it's been... so many things. I'm not ready to write about it yet.

But I'll have that cruise post up soon. With pictures.

(note: Link fixed. You know what I did? Hit [shift+v] instead of [ctrl+v]. I am amazing at html, am I not? My keyboard, she laughs at me.)

Sadly, the link doesn't appear to be working.

Perhaps it, too, has an invisible disability.

I'm not sure, but I certainly found her inspirational.

Thank you for the link! My conditions are rather different from Attack Laurel and the creator of that bingo, but I still feel the frustration and violent impulses towards those who don't believe/think it can be cured/or want it themselves.

That is freaking genius. I'm SOOO tired of the folks who pull the 'well, if you don't want to listen to me babble on about this gizmo/snake-oil that cured my sister's dentist's babysitter, then *obviously* you LIKE having whatever-you-think-your-problems-are, so I can dismiss you as selfish and crazy from here on out.'

Grrr.....

Welcome back! You were missed, and I hope the world has stopped surging for you.
