You Know You're a Writer When...

Last night I felt completely overwhelmed with all of these health issues. I went home, ate supper, and decided to work out on my treadmill. Well, the treadmill wasn't working right. In disgust, I went upstairs, flopped down on my bed, and cried.

A few minutes later, however, I got up, went and booted up my laptop, and started writing. Sure, it was only for ten minutes or so, but in those ten minutes, I completely forgot about my health and dived into my characters' world. It was amazing.

I wanted to work on it longer, but I only had so much energy last night. Medical issues sort of suck the energy out of you.

I took my glucose tolerance test this morning and thankfully, my mom came with me to keep me company. The whole thing took two hours since they had to check my blood every 30 minutes. But that's just one test out of the way, and hopefully, it will be the test that will help give them a diagnosis.

I really just wanted to go home and sleep after that, but alas, duty calls. The day job and all that. *grin*

  1. Try to schedule a couple of those escape times for yourself each day. You need a break from the stress.

  2. Hopefully they'll diagnose you soon and you have the stress of the unknown removed! Like Jason says, schedule a couple of 15 min submersion breaks into your day!! Hugs.

  3. I'm with Toni - knowing what the problem is is the first step. Good luck!

  5. Gee, Mel, hope they figure things out soon. That really sucks. And, stupid treadmill - hope you kicked it!

    Glad the writing helped :-)

  6. I'm glad you were able to grab even ten minutes writing time and that it helped. It's nice escaping into someone else's world for a while, especially when you control it.

  7. Melissa, I know it's very tedious going through all the testing. But hang in there and I pray everything will be alright.
