This is my last post here at WordPress…it has been a great journey for me but it has come to an end. I’m proud of my work on here, but I’m also proud of the website that I created for Digestive Disorder awareness and honestly, it’s hard (for me) to manage both 🙂
I hope that you visit me sometime at http://www.mycrazycolon.com
I’ll be there tucked away in Kat’s corner!
Thank you for your support…
I truly appreciate it!
Today, I mentally went to my “special” place (in my mind) when my son started talking about the new safe house that he built in Minecraft. For 45 minutes, I heard about zombies, secret passageways, storage chests and some poor cows that fell over and turned into leather. I tried to look interested, I really did and even interjected an “Oh, my goodness, really?” every couple of minutes. I truly thought this game would lose its appeal after a couple of weeks but…it seems to be hanging on…tight.
Not EVERYONE likes artificial sweeteners in their gum. I know this for a fact because I really had to pee today while at the grocery store…but I held it (barely, cuz ya’ll know I got Incontinence) because I was listening to a woman who talked to me for 15 minutes about the Fall of Chewing Gum. I totally agreed with her.
It seems like a lot of gum has *stuff* in it. I looked at about 20 packs today and saw ingredients that my body just doesn’t like 😦 Sometimes, you don’t have to change things. Just keep Big Red…Big Red! Oh, and trust me, I don’t need another new flavor. Pink flavor is good enough for me even if it only lasts for 6 seconds. If I want to taste deep dish apple pie a la mode….I would eat a piece of deep dish apple pie a la mode. Just give me a choice between real sugar and fake sugar…that’s all. Thank you.
Me & the random lady in the grocery store
When I got sick back in 2008 (see my About Me page :)) I thought I could manage it. I truly did. I shrugged it off, No big deal. I would continue to eat. Run. Be normal. Then…
I couldn’t deal with things.
A glass of wine became two…then three…
Silence was a day…then a week
Fullness needed cutting
I needed help. I needed to talk. I needed to let it all out…and I did. I humbled myself. I let myself heal. Today, I take one day at time….Today, I write. Today, I laugh…Today, I am back to…ME 🙂
I looked at her
She looked back at me
Like a sharp knife
Wanting to slice me
She wanted to cut me
So that I would peer down
At my bleeding & gaping flesh
To look away
But I didn’t
I stared you down
Like a dirty cowboy
With my boots in the dust
And tumbleweeds blowing in the wind
I saw you
Pick your nose
And then eat your booger
