At the End of My Cope

Posted by kayholt on August 6, 2013 in health, work |

This is hard for me to write. I’m sick, but I don’t look sick. Most of my symptoms are cognitive. Failures of concentration, recall, and communication. On good days, I can force out a few emails.

Work, work, work. I love working. Free time is good, too, because I have a lot of projects to labor on at home, but I find industrious leisure even more satisfying when it’s married to steady, paid employment. And if a job is less than dreamy? Well. At least it’s fodder for my fiction. Or, […]

Tired this morning. Again. Bitching out the cable company yesterday was taxing – I’m generally intractable, but not usually so LOUD.
