I’m Fine Redux

I am very much not okay.  It’s why I haven’t blogged in so very long.  I am an emotional wreck.  Remember how I was having trouble sleeping?  Well, that’s over.  I’m now sleeping 10/11/12 hours a day or more.  I am making it to appointments.  I do eventually drag myself out of bed and take care of the critters.

My partner has been cooking for me.  Finding delicious ways to meet my restricted dietary needs.

I’ve been dreaming vivid dreams about old friends and places.

A dear friend gave us money when things got dire at the beginning of the month.  Really hoping my disability appeal will go through.  Though I think we’ve found a few things to cut expenses.  But medical stuff continues to stack up.  We’ve both had our medications tweaked.  We both need dental procedures.  My partner is getting a couple of other necessary medical procedures.  My orthotics cost more than expected. Not a lot more but still.  ~sigh~

I just want to disappear in a puff of despair.

Authors of African descent are taking Urban Fantasy by storm and, as author Daniel José Older
