Plans for a New Year

Today I was tempted to just post a piece I had written last week which I didn’t get around to uploading. Yes, I was very tempted, but I didn’t want my first post of the new year to be a leftover from last year. You will be seeing that one tomorrow (c’mon, I’m not going to waste it?!). I hope everyone has had a good start to 2015, but I know that if you’re anything like me, you’re probably struggling after all the over-exertion of the last few weeks. I am so ill at the moment, I can barely see straight, but I can’t say I regret a single minute of all the activity, talking and laughing that has left me totally wrecked. Of course, the longer I’m left feeling this way, the more that feeling of contentment will wane, but for now, I’m good.

I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to do in 2015. I don’t really make resolutions, but I do assess where I’ve been, what I’m doing right now and where I want to be. I started The ME/CFS Ghost in the hopes of sharing what my life with ME is like. That means writing about how I feel, what I do; the good, the bad and the ugly. So, I’m going to be sticking to that, but I’m sure you’ll see more of a militant side to me because that’s honestly how I’ve been feeling. I’m not angry, I actually feel great inside, but I am much more confident in what I know and passionate about sharing that with others. I’m also in the process of writing a book about living with a chronic illness. I began planning it a while ago, but I haven’t had the time, health or energy to really work on it.

Going forward, I’ll still be attempting to post every week day, health allowing of course. Tomorrow you’ll see the post which is almost a part two of the mini rant I had in The Fault in Our Stars. On Wednesday I’m hoping to talk about ME adrenaline surges, because that’s what landed me in my current mess, but it all depends on if I can get my brain to engage. Thank you all for joining me in 2015, let’s make it the best one that we can.

In the past I’ve talked about how I have certain songs that get me through the day. Today’s song is Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Free Bird – guitar solo all the way! Enjoy and I’ll see you tomorrow!
