Fog. Bridge. Stubborn. Sorry.

July 29, 2006 | Category: In My Life

I wrote a long entry here. And to sum up, I've been ill. My ability to write, walk, shit even remember my way home from the bank has all been compromised over the last month.

I've talked about having Lupus before, but before it was inconvenience to my life.

I made some mistakes with my health, and then made the situation worse with a dose of pride and recklessness. I kept thinking if I could get through the day, then it wasn't so bad.

It was my first time facing a flare without a backup resource, and if it was a test - I failed.

I did manage to write about it, but it took more courage than I have at just this minute to have it out there.

I'm sorry.

And here I thought you'd had such a wonderful vacation that you'd forgotten all about the internet.

I'm sorry to hear that you've been ill and hope you're back to well again soon - I've been missing you & Bear.

No need to apologize, Elizabeth. I hope that you are feeling much better soon. Try not to be too hard on yourself re: having made mistakes. I'm thinking of you.

I'm sad that you've been ill, Elizabeth. Your travel photos look so happy. Rest. Recover. No apology expected or needed.

Yuck! I have AS (spinal arthritis) and can identify. It can come out of no where and completely kick your ass! When you have serious health problems the doctor always tells you "not to burn the candle at both ends"...but how exactly do you not do that? Especially when you are a Mom who is also trying to pay the bills? Well, hope you feel better and realize lot's of us have gone through it also!

Hey Elizabeth- I chose your blog as one of our Top10 Sources some time ago, and have very much enjoyed reading your entries! I am sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I'm sure your family is there for you, and it seems that you have a strong on-line support group as well. So reach out when you need it. Here is to your great writing and sharing. Thanks!

I have RA, so I know where you're coming from. Take it easy - and take it easy on yourself - rest up, get better.

Oh no! Please don't worry about us -- we just want you to be well and happy.

I'm sorry, sweetheart. And I don't think that by trying to stretch your limits, you failed.

I have RA, so I know where you're at. Take it easy and feel better. Your family is way more important than being on the 'nets.

Big hugs!
