Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
Is this what discouragement feels like?

If we could just go one month . . . hell, if we could just go two weeks . . . without some sort of sickness or health issue. I've started to wonder what it would feel like.

This must be what it's like to be helpless against the inevitable. And as we get older, it won't get better, I imagine.

I just feel completely, utterly dispirited.

And, honestly, I almost never feel this way. I think it's been nearly 15 years since I can remember feeling anything like it.

Well, I guess I'll go clean out a drawer or clean off a shelf. It's time to do something useful. Because this is something I am absolutely powerless against, and I despise admitting to a lack of power.

I'm so sorry. This has all been much harder on you than me, ever since July and the diabetes... And I don't know what I'd do without you, dealing with that and my allergies and the f-ing flu and now my dental crap. Man.

It's okay for you to feel down, of course. But we'll be okay. We always are! And like you always say, hard times make the good times better. We appreciate them more...

And the swelling is down some, so it's all good -- right?

(At least I don't look like Quasimodo, yet -- like years ago! Close, but not quite... grin...)

It was lucky that the pain died down when it did . . . maybe it's that old saying about God not giving you more than you can handle, or some such thing.

Oh no, that's made of so much suck. :( *hugs*

Thanks! It's okay, just a rare down moment.

Hang in there, dancing babe!
I'm not in on the full story but I feel with you. Don't let the pitty pot win. Give in to it for now but I'm sure that suddenly, everything will be blue & pink again.

You're so powerful and full of wit. I have so much faith in you, dancing star.

I'm sorry to hear that you feel discouraged for any reason... Hang in there!

Thanks, dearie. This is probably the lowest post I've ever posted, not like me at all. It just seemed like a good way to get it out.

I hope it worked and that the riddance is done!

I always think of Annie's song "The Sun'll Come Out Tomorrow". It always cheers me up at least a little! :)

And, as corny as it is, it's true. As Mom always said:

This, too, will pass.

Thanks, dear!

Wow, I'm sorry I missed this entry. It's so difficult to have health problems and difficult to have a sister that is having some. I wish I could tell you I think it will only get better the older you both get. But I do think it can come in bunches, groups, herds or something of that sort.

It's so easy to miss a post. I hadn't seen yours about entering the Writer's Digest contest until Charlie told me about it! I had to just go to your journal and give up on my friends' view.

Yes, you know what it's like to live with your sister and be affected by her health and moods. It's an interesting thing, not that different, I guess, from any sort of co-habitation.

Luckily Charlie is doing a bit better with her teeth. The next round will come two days before Christmas. Deck the halls!
