Hello my dear friends,
I have posted several articles that have been somewhat generalized. Although I feel that it’s okay, at the same time, I feel that I wasn’t living up to the promise I made myself. That promise was to keep this site very intimate and blatantly honest.
It’s not that I’ve been dishonest, but it has been written about subjects that are not very intimate. I do realize that one can’t always be intimate because there are months when nothing new happens. I don’t want to keep rehashing relentlessly about the same old things.
The goal was to tell you about MY life with Multiple Sclerosis, not about other’s and not about the subject in general. However, as I said above, when nothing new happens to relay to you, there really isn’t anything to be said. I am honest about this.
You see, I’m not the type of person who keeps going over and over the events of my life. Sure, I think about them and sometimes in real life, not the written word, I will talk about it with a friend, but once said is once said. Repeating it again is pointless.
Repeating it again, in this venue, however; is actually necessary. Now that I think about it. People don’t bother reading all the articles, do they? I know I don’t when I follow someone’s blog. Most authors aren’t all that interesting after a while, including me. Don’t you think?
I write when I have something to say. I don’t write just to write, although in college, one is taught to write something, anything, to practice one’s craft. Singers have to sing to maintain their voices. Actors practice their lines over and over. Perhaps I’m wrong and college professors are right? I don’t know.
I do have some new events to tell you about but not today. I’ve gone on and on about feeling guilty over not writing, that I’ve actually written an article about it.
What writing does for me is help clear my brain fog. It helps me come to decisions and it helps me to either berate myself or stop berating myself over one thing or another. I am my toughest critic.
Try it sometime. Write! You may find that it helps you in many ways.
