You know how on most roller coasters you gingerly crest that first hill. Like a deep breath holding back a hurricane? Well, that's where I am right now.
For the past two months my left hand has been shaking noticeably. Kinda like this.
Not quite that bad, but pretty close. I finally go tonight to speak to my doctor about it. I've been having trouble recalling words and finishing my sentences. And I've been exhausted. As in taking-somewhat-involuntary-naps-in-the-middle-of-the-afternoon exhausted.
Those things could be from the stress. Or the worry. Or the depression as my brain spins every worst case scenario it can imagine. Which, as writers, we know we can make it really bad.
So I'm poised at the top of this hill, hoping like hell this will be a kiddie sized ride instead of the screaming, tear your face off with g-forces twist and turns variety.
I've taken a break from writing and this blog. I miss visiting you guys and the camaraderie you all so easily share.
I'll be back when I can. I know you'll all be here because you've been such an awesome, supportive group.
Until then, Citizens.
