I have been putting off sitting down and just writing in my blog about what is really going on in my life. A lot of it is due to pride and the rest maybe fear.
Since I was young I have battled with some problem or other in my skeleton, whether it be my back, legs or whatever. It never truly stopped me from being active and playing sports, riding like a wild woman on horses or jumping out of perfectly good planes but now it's different, time has caught up!
I find myself unable to do the simplest task, like vacuuming or doing the dishes. I can't stand for more than a few minutes and God forbid that I need to walk anywhere cause I just can't. For the last two years, since my surgery, I have been battling one issue after another and never really winning the war just the battle.....This war has now taken over the battlefield and rages on.
Last January I faced yet another life altering dilemma which could only be corrected with massive amounts of steroids. Needless to say steroids are not my friend for long term use and have given me a whole new set of problems to deal with....not walking is one of them. I'm trying to keep that proverbial chin up and to think positive but there are times that even with my strong life ethic I find myself falter a bit. I truly hate having to dump even the simplest task on my already over-worked husband but most of you know we live in a rather remote area of Virginia with no friends or family readily available.....besides I honestly think if my kids were here they would probably put a gag in my mouth , a bag over my head and lock me in a closet cause I would drive them completely NUTS! I'm not a good patient....
To all those wonderful collectors of mine that have waited ever so patiently for there commissioned pieces all I can say is "someday"....I am no longer taking any more custom work for the time being because I refuse to disappoint anyone else.
"Ghoultide Gathering" is still happening even if I have to wheel myself around in a tastefully decorated wheelchair! Okay who am I kidding it won't be tastefully decorated! This part of my life is not the end but just a new beginning and like most people with ADD we love beginnings it's the ends we have problems with!
