Bloggers sometimes get writer's block.
I've been having the opposite problem lately. So much has been going on, I have so many stories to share – but not enough time to write them up.
And then, just watch … tomorrow I'll have writer's block and forget everything inside my head.
In the meantime, I feel an overwhelming urge to share the following – very random – tidbits with you:
• Orange County is BREATHTAKINGLY beautiful right now. Come visit!
• Steroids are my miracle drug! Can you say R-E-L-I-E-F?
• As of yesterday, the doc has taken me OFF my miracle drug – steroids are also dangerous.
• My pain level is already ramping back up.
• Fuck pain.
• Surprisingly (!!), a lot of you like are pirates.
• I'm a pervert magnet. Yes, I am.
• Just ask your local perv and he will tell you how great he thinks I am.
• Trust me, he knows me – even though I probably hopefully don't know him.
• I wasn't calling those of you who like are pirates – perverts.
• Perverts and pirates are two separate things.
• Most of the time.
• I think.
• Dr. Painless and I had a very unusual conversation yesterday about implanting stimulating electrodes in people's bodies.
• I'm in the waiting-for-insurance-approval stage for my personal, built-in, stimulators.
• Yes, the vibrating electrodes conversation with Dr. Painless did take a downhill turn.
• Would you expect anything different from the likes of me?
• Sometimes, in my writing, I say I'm "disabled."
• I always use quotes around the word, because there's so much wrong with using the word disabled to describe a human being.
• Also, I don't REALLY think the word applies to me.
• And yet, at the same time, I know it does.
• When a doctor calls me disabled – in a very matter of fact, this-is-reality, manner – I flinch.
• The words hurt and I think they always will.
• I've recently signed a Blogger Agreement with Cheerios.
• They, for some unknown reason, find me "inspirational."
• On a separate note, there are a lot of people with disabilities and chronic pain who need a voice.
• I don't pretend to be a spokesperson for anyone but myself.
• I'm not a great role model either.
• I am, however, happy to use my voice to help others if I can.
• I hope I can.
