The Truth in Titles

At least my title anyway.

I don’t know how many people actually look at the titles that others place under their names on forums, or on their profie pages. Anal-retentive such and such that I am I spent long hours internet eons ago thinking of the perfect tiny title that would describe the soul sucking microcosm that is me. (Hey, I should have gone with Soul Sucking Microcosm!)

I ended up with Author, Mother, Gimp.
This was before all of the attack-display fiasco which has landed me in surgery and stuck on the downstairs couch for almost a month now. I am losing my collective minds.

I finally made it upstairs today for the first time in, well, forever it seems.

I haven’t written a word, editied a chapter, posted a blog, or had a decent bath since my surgery in August. I am so tired of this, but being sick and injured takes a lot out of you!

My immune system is still defunct from the chemo, and the surgery was hard. Add to that I caught an infection in the wound, and you have all the makings of a PAR-TAY! *not*

I’m hoping to get back into the groove this coming week since I can now hobble a bit and scoot up and down the stairs on my butt. Maybe even, dare I say it, WRITE!

*Angles sing HALLELUJAH!*

If not, I am going to have to change my title to just Gimp.

  1. Wow, you are brave, fantastically committed person!

    You are going through so much, yet you still want to get back to writing… and the lack of decent showers alone would be very hard on me.

    I hope you recover beautifully and write away at the very first opportunity!

    • Aww, thanks Shakespeare! You are right, sponge bathing in a bathroom sink off the kitchen isn’t ideal, but neither are a great many things, all of which are much worse than my situation. šŸ˜€ I’m writing tonight on the hubby’s laptop, which is very soul satisfying. Thanks for the well wishes!
