It may be news to some of my followers to hear that I suffer from an auto-immune disease that totally sucks it. I don't like to talk about it much, because I don't ever want to use it as a crutch. I am the type of person who always focuses on the positive and refuses to let this disease overtake my ability to live my life to the fullest. That is why, I like to keep it on the down low. But lately, it's becoming increasingly more and more difficult to do so.
Stress can induce flare ups and I've been under an unusual amount of stress with the string of unfortunate events. I considered stopping my blog all together, but after getting an extremely kind compliment/comment from one of my followers, (thanks Ilima) I decided I should just tell everyone the truth. When I am in the midst of a bad flare up, I am sure to be doing one (or all) of these stupid things:
(1) make lots and lots of typos/mistakes
(2) forget that I already commented on one of your posts and do it again
(3) repeat myself, a lot.
Memory loss/impairment is just one of many symptoms that can get bad for awhile. I guess I considered quitting because I was being a bit vain, and didn't want to embarrass myself. But that's not being very fair to my followers. Maybe some of you wouldn't mind as much as I think, now that you know why. And after my recent rant/post on LIES OF OMISSION, I would consider myself a total hypocrite, for not telling you the complete truth now and allowing you to make up your own minds.
So follow at your own risk friends, but consider yourselves forewarned if I blog/comment like I'm totally wasted from time to time. Cheers ~Jaybird
