Why Hello Again!
Did you ever notice that throughout the day you have a million thoughts, that you think, WOW! This would make a great blog! But you never actually write it. You never even make it to a computer. Sure sometimes you write the thought down. Hell I have an entire section in the notes on my phone of future blogs that I want to write. I even bought a book of ideas to write about.
Yet here I sit, with nothing written.
So lets start, again.
I’m going to start with me. Just in case you are new here. 🙂
There are the usual boring things. I have 2 crazy boys, I’ve been married forever, and I live in the cutest old town with all of it’s dirty little edges.
What is on my mind right now though, I am on my local BOE. It has been a huge struggle. It has given me stress and happiness. Honestly though, most of the time I feel like I am working by myself. I am banging my head against a wall. Why is it that people say they care about something, go out of their way to be part of something, and then NOTHING! Why?!?
This is actually why I stopped writing. This blog is tied to my real name. So I am forever afraid that someone will read this and somehow I will get in trouble for what I write. There are so many rules. For some reason there are more rules and guidelines for the members of a Board of Education than there are for your local government. Thankfully there is also significantly more training in New Jersey for a Board member. That should say something fellow Jersians. There is a reason our Government sucks but we have the best schools in the country.
I just want people to care. I just want people who say that they care to actually care.
Alright rant over. 🙂
I started this blog as a way to talk about, vent about, dealing with this ridiculous disease called Multiple Sclerosis. My invisible monster. I hit my 100th Tysabri infusion last month. It felt like somehow I was getting somewhere. Just like when I was on Copaxone. When I finished a box of shots I got all excited. It felt like, Yes! I have accomplished something! I must be done now. This has to be over. I have made it to the end! Then the next box of shots shows up at my door. DAMN IT! Same exact situation with my infusions. Just last week I went to my 101 infusion. And being the Disney nerd that I am, I was upset that there were no puppies. Puppies seemed like the most appropriate way to celebrate my 101 infusion. But, no puppies. And I still have to go to my 102, and my 103, and so on.
Many more things catch my attention, drive me nuts, and make me laugh than my life with MS. This is my place to share those things with you. I hope you enjoy the crazy place that is my brain.
