If I had a worry doll, it would be Tiny shaped.on February 4, 2013 at 6:00 am
Can you believe it is February already?! What happened, didn’t it just seem like we were rounding the corner into 2013? For once I’m actually looking forward for things a few months away. Towards the end of last year I got diagnosed with a stress-related disorder that’s causing my immune system to go wonky, and I was really out of my mind with worry (hooray, cuz THAT’s great for stress) over the turn of the year. My doctor says it will take 6 months for everything to settle down…and considering that I’m still in the period where my paranoia that my condition will get much much WORSE instead of staying fairly mild (as it does for most people) likes to return and haunt me every few days. You know, because the worst case scenario happens to people! On the internet, mostly – I wish I could drink a Kiss of Lethe and forget the day I spend reading all these worst case scenarios. (Honestly sometimes I wish I could take a double dose of Lethe and sleep through some unpleasant times or wake and know if it will/HAS gotten worse. *grumble*)
This is the first time I have had to worry about a health related thing. Instantly I wish I could go back to a time when I wasn’t worrying, but in life I suppose it’s always one thing after another. Look at Maddie! She’d gotten her life on track with work and job and career, and seemed to have settled recent romantic troubles and now look! An exposé book revealing a dark or embarrassing time in her past that she really really wanted to keep secret! Must be terrible being a semi-celebrity and having to worry about that!
