And the adventure continues…

It's a great read, really. More people would say so if they took the time to read it.

It’s a great read, really. More people would say so if they took the time to read it. Hey, it even won a literary award!

I really thought my memoir-writing days were over. Heck fire. Enough happened to me to fill a whole book. And it was l…o…n…g. But it ended so well. I didn’t die peacefully or anything like that. But I’m living with the perfect man for me in the perfect home for me. I feel way more found than lost. I’d say that was a good ending. Sure, I still have the crazy-pants health issues I had before:

*dizziness (but only when I’m awake)

*migraines (but only when I’m stressed, tired, overwhelmed by too much hoopla around me, or the weather changes)

*fatigue (but only when I’m tired)

*easily overwhelmed by sound, motion, light, other people’s emotions and any other possible sensory stimulation (but only when I’m around other people or alone)

*irritable bowel syndrome (butt only when my bowels are provoked)

I can happily say that these symptoms are not as severe as they used to be and, when they occur, don’t bother me for as long as they used to. My life is so much more serene and I’m surrounded by people who accept and love me. I’m no longer trying to be someone I’m not, which is good, because it takes a village idiot worth of energy just being who I am from day to day. Who ever that is.

Hey Lady, let's go over there! I think there must be something fun, fun, fun, to do over there. Then you can take me back to my special place. Okay? So let's go, go, go!

Hey Lady, let’s go, go, go over there!!! It looks like fun, fun, fun!!!. Then you can take me back to my special place. Okay? So let’s go, go, go!!! Now, now, now!!!

So, I figured that my life would be pretty boring from here on out. You know, nothing to write home about, or write a blog about, or write a book about. But, that’s not the way my life works. I should have known better. My life story just wants to keep going for your–not necessarily my–entertainment pleasure. And it doesn’t want to be a schmaltzy romance. Although…I could write some hotsy-totsy love scenes.

Just pretend George is Philip and this brunette is me. Yes. We love nature.

No. I’d categorize my continuing story as more of a “medical farcical mystery.” Is that a genre? If not, it should be one. So, over the next year, you are coming with me on my medical farcical mystery tour. Eventually, just like my memoir, these posts will magically congeal into a book. That means you’re getting in on the ground floor. Congratulations! But I won’t tell you everything here. I have to leave some surprises for the book. I’m blonde; I’m definitely dizzy, but I’m not dumb.

No, dear. It's not the hair or body or even the flawless features that got me where I am. It's the glasses. They make you smarter. It's like magic.

What about my other book–the novel that’s already 86,000+ words long and not finished yet? Oh, I’m still working on that. I finish what I start, People. So, stay tuned for the next installment when I reveal the answer to the question:

Whatever has happened to our favorite dizzy blonde heroine now?

Don't fret, Bert. I'm sure she won't make us wait too long for the answer. She's not a cruel woman.

  1. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. MOST DEFINITELY!!

  3. I’d rather have the wrinkles, wouldn’t you? ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. YOU’RE RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a “friend” who almost NEVER smilesโ€ฆand she’s pretty wrinkle freeโ€ฆas opposed to meโ€ฆ

  5. Yup. I suppose an up-side to all of this is that with less smiling, my crow’s feet won’t deepen… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. OH NO!!!!!! Not on that pretty face!!!

  7. Yes. It seems that the older I get, the younger I act. What’s next? Acne? ๐Ÿ˜

  8. GOODNESSโ€ฆGRACIOUSโ€ฆLORNA’S GOT TO HAVE BRACES!!

  9. lol

  10. Hey, I can’t seem to help it. Life throws me a curve ball and I can’t seem to duck! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Lorna, I’ve been thinking of you so strongly! And now i see why! You are at it again, LOL LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰ So glad to see you are still “on it” and “at it” – never stop writing or being you. We have the same exact ailments. Almost. And don’t you dare even get me started on the body. LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hugs to you, write on! โค โค โค

  12. I agree. Being at this point in my life and being able to say that makes everything else all the more tolerable. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. More than anything I am pleased you are in a more settled place now, with a man and other people who love and value you: that’s the nicest thing there is.

  14. Who do you have in mind for the movie leads? ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Well, we wouldn’t want that to add to my list of “challenges,” now would we? ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Prolonged standing causes varicose veins anyway.

  17. Yup, that’s what I’m going to have to do. But I have to get it all out first. I’m almost there. Almost…

  18. nice idea ๐Ÿ˜‰

  19. I know that ache. I just cute over three full chapters cause I was so in love with including unnecessary medical stuff. But, at least I got it out of me.

  20. I suppose that’s true. I may need me some of those “special effects” pretty soon… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. Happy weekend to you, too! And, yes, too many words in this novel. I have to take a scalpel to it once I finish the first draft. I just have to admit to myself that I have many words in me that are aching to get out… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  22. I thought I was the only one with all those symptoms, lol! It’s the best, the absolute best, to be over trying to be someone we’re not. Took me a long long time to drop the people pleasing persona which was exhausting, especially being a nurse. Ov vey. Wow, lotta words in your next one, yipppeee, can’t wait to read it! Happy weekend.

  23. That’s what special effects are for!

  24. I thank you most sincerely for the compliment. And I can only say that I’m only funny when I write. I’d bomb at stand-up routines. Not quick enough in the head… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  25. Yes, you should! Writing your experiences and thought in little pieces (posts) isn’t very intimidating. Then, POOF! Over the course of time, you have enough material for a book. Just make sure to leave some juicy bits for the book alone. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. I really didn’t think so, but I was never one for knowing what was coming around the corner at me… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  27. But, Al, she’s missing a pair of essential, well, um, props… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  28. My money’s on Angelina Jolie to play you in the movie version.

  29. Of course, there has to be a sequel to your memoir x

  30. Cannot wait,, maybe I should start a monthly blog/post from when I was diagnosed diabetic,, this was a farce and still is, I will title it ‘Di bet it is boring’ heehee look forward to yours..

  31. Lorna, no one woman could be this clever, funny, no, nobody. Chuckle.

Silence can be just what the doctor ordered. You know I'm a doctor, right?
