Sick in limbo

Sometimes, I wish someone will just appear, out of nowhere even, and give me the magic potion that will cure my ailments and keep them away from me for years!

I don’t write about what I’m going to write now because I am fully aware of the [over]sensitivity of some people or groups of people. I fear that I will be severely criticized for perceived insensitivity. However, there are times when I really feel that I should be booked off on disability. I am always sick that I don’t feel able to do what I used to do and what I normally am capable of doing without much effort.

I was never a sickly person. I hardly took sick leave. I even used to go to work when I was unwell. I was a typical woman who didn’t say, “I’m sick.” I also had a lot of stress then. I blame aging but hubby says I’m not old enough to blame my age. I don’t know why then.

I have always been the “eater” that I am now. I probably ate more junk 10 years ago. I even drank alcohol and I smoked! I went out partying and I had less sleep than what I get now.

So, yes. I want in my reality the fantasy I write about. I want magic. I want spells. I want that world where I can make my illness disappear and for good.

But I am not a witch and I don’t have powers. I miss my youth. I miss the old times when I was as healthy as a horse.

Then, when I thought it couldn’t get worse, the road nightmares to which I am subjected daily pushed me to the edge and I broke down. I know… do you know of anyone who had a nervous breakdown because of the frustration from traffic? Probably not.

I suppose the situation would have been slightly different if I didn’t have fear in my heart. Perhaps I wouldn’t have had a break down if I didn’t dread the anger or sarcasm or even rudeness of someone when I am unavoidably held up in traffic and thus late for work.

However, could it be also that it was just a catalyst?

Could it be that I have been harboring frustration, irritation, anger, sadness, hopelessness, etc. and I just couldn’t keep those negative feelings anymore?

Was it simply the time to release the pent up emotions, whether I liked it or not?

In short, I’m back on my “happy pills”. Hopefully, six months on medication will do wonders for the wiring of my brain.

I hope you’ll stick around.

Thank you for all the support always.


Much love and hugs,

  2. *Hugs* Writers are sensitive creatures – we feel everything – and when we are feeling too much, everything becomes too much. Stay strong – remember you’re titanium (love the song from Sia), though even that isn’t always enough with the traffic on our roads.

    1. Thanks so much, Ronel. Oh yes, that song gets me pumped up and I forget the mess around me. 🙂
      Fortunately, I’ve gotten this far, halfway, and I’m closer to the end of the bridge ahead of me than behind me, as with Shrek and Donkey. 🙂
      The love and support from everyone help a lot, too. Much love and hugs. xxx
