Yup – you guessed it. Usual position – freshly showered – in my favorite pair of VS pjs – sipping on a cup of the best green tea I have ever tasted. I’m usual not a tea person but I’m trying to be a little healthier in my life choices (coughs, laughs, and almost spits out tea at the thought of healthy.)
I mask my pain, my struggles, my problems with laughter – with humor. I always have – ever since I can remember. I remember when I was in High School and my Grandmother passed away – I remember sitting in the funeral home laughing my ass off. And it wasn’t just me – two of my sisters and I were tucked away in a corner – laughing – joking – and when I say laughing I mean the type of laughter that is uncontrollable and you laugh so hard that tears stream down your face. I also mask my pain, my struggles and problems with drugs. Again as far back as I can remember – drugs never take the struggles, pain and problems away they just make me not give a shit. Of course it’s wrong – every person needs to learn how to deal with the pain, the struggles, the problems in a healthy way. It was just something I was never taught. Is it something parents are supposed to teach children? I don’t know!
I am not a religious person but I consider myself to be spiritual. I believe in miracles. I believe in staying away from negative people and negative situations. I treat people they way I would want to be treated. Sometimes people mistake my kindness as a weakness and try to take advantage of me. I believe everyone – absolutely everyone deserves respect. I find comfort in being grateful – I try to be grateful for what I have. I don’t live in a mansion, I don’t drive a fancy sports car, I don’t wear designer clothes – o.k. o.k. some of them are designer thanks to Mini Me. Sometimes I have to remind myself to be grateful. It can be difficult. I mean – come on now – I’m fucking dying. I don’t know how long I have – I don’t know what tomorrow will bring – I could go to bed tonight and not wake up tomorrow. So sometimes trying to be a grateful person can be difficult. But I NEVER – EVER – EVER lose hope. I always have hope for what tomorrow might bring. I’m going to try to make a mark on this great big earth while I am here………..damn it.
I am also a very realistic person and I know that there might come a time when the doctors say “this is it” and though thoughts of suicide have entered my mind I will more than likely just asked them to keep me as pain-free as possible – maybe a little too comfortable if you know what I mean. It hasn’t been easy – some of my doctors don’t agree with my choice – my decision and I leave their office frustrated and sad with a “How dare they attitude. It’s my life – it’s my body attitude.” “It’s not you who is going through this it is me attitude.”
I don’t even know where the fuck I am going with this post. – No fuckin clue – damn it. I guess maybe I just want some people not to give up hope – to tell them I admire the deep commitment and love they have. To tell them to always have hope. There is always someone out there that can help them.
On another note – we are expecting another snow storm sometime tomorrow. What kills me is the snow prediction is 4 to 10 inches…………..are you kidding me? There is a huge difference between 4 inches and 10 inches – of snow – get your minds out of the gutter. HAHAHA. Today I dropped off 34 pounds of motherfucking laundry that I haven’t done in a month. 34 pounds! 34 pounds is a lot of laundry – a lot. So, I let someone else wash, dry and fold it. Geez, I can be lazy sometimes. I also picked up my prescriptions just in case we do get those 10 inches. I just finished a bowl of the leftover 3 bean turkey chili I made yesterday when I was watching the two teams I wanted to win – lose. Oh well – we can’t win every major sporting event every year – HAHAHA.
I am hoping to go back to the same trail with Buddy on Wednesday but the snow might put a damper on that plan. Hiking in the snow is great but it is when it turns to ice that makes it tricky – I need ice cleats. And true to form with my addictive personality I am now addictive to a couple shows on the National Geographic Channel. I absolutely feel in love with the Legend of Mick Dodge and Ultimate Survival Alaska. I can’t believe I just said that. You all know how I feel about the idiot box.
Sleep tight and sweet dreams.
