I'm not titanium...

...sadly...
 
Or any of those super strong things that make you able to leap tall buildings at a single bound...
 
...or...
 
Wait.
 
I am mixing metaphors here.
 
Or something.
 
And confusing what I'm actually trying to write.
 
Or just confusing myself.
 
I'm not sure which.
 
But.
 
I'm in the midst of a some chronic illness battles that are leaving me fairly broken and bloody from the fighting. 
 


It has become increasingly difficult to type...
 
It has become increasingly difficult to string thoughts together...
 
...not that I could ever actually do that in a succinct fashion.
 
However.
 
I'm trying to maintain Alphabe-Thursday until the letter Z this round and I will get the links up each week so you can continue with our lovely little community of support and interesting subjects...
 
I am just unable to participate in much right now such as visiting you all and even linking my own posts for this round.  
 
I'm seeing some really good new doctors and having lots and lots of tests over the next few weeks...
 
I'm hoping for progress with some of these difficult medications I'm taking for now...
 
...and I'm feeling  confident in saying, "I'll be back."
 
But the truth is, both the pain and the treatments seem to be draining me of all  energy.
 
So...
 
For now  dear blog friends...
 
The links are pre-posted clear through the letter Z.
 
I'll check in when I can.
 
Because I miss you all.
 
And I really, really like you all.
 
And because I kinda/sorta hate when pain wins out over what I want to be doing.
 
I'm cranky like that.
 
And getting crankier.
 
Sigh...

Jenny, since you are seeing a new doctor and having tests done, you should have them test you for an MTHFR mutation. All these years I've been searching and thought that one only had to do with fertility and pregnancy loss. Was I ever wrong about that!

Pat Tillett said...

Hi Jenny! I'm so sorry that you are ailing so much. All the positive and healing thoughts I can muster are flying your way. You take care of yourself. You are one of my favorites and I hope to see you back here and feeling better soon...

Lola said...

So sorry to learn about this - do hope all the new tests prove successful and you're feeling so much better soon.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

Sending prayers that you recover quickly.

Jenny Short said...

Dear Jenny,
I am so sorry to hear you're laen down by this battle but you will overcome in the long run. Keep going on. One day at a time. Do you have arthritis, rheumatisn, fibromyalgia? and the list goes on. Getting old sucks!@#$#!@@%%##@^&* because with it comes a whole bevy of invaders. Trust in the Lord. xo Jenny

Theresa said...

I will pray for you dear Jenny that the pain will go away. I will miss you terribly, but just come back when you feel better! Love you!

Oh Jenny, I am so sorry! I have had some small medical issues and it amazes me just how much they derail life and make everyday living difficult. I can't imagine dealing with the extent of things that you have. My heart goes out to you! I know you've struggled for awhile yet you've always kept your chin up, gracing us with your fun personality. We all love you! No worries, come back when you can girl. <3
