Degree

The post Christmas and new years entry is always a pain to write, and even worse when hindered with illness. I have (or my body does, I’m beginning to think it is it’s own person) an annual habit/date/whatever you want to call it of being ill. By being ill I mean more so than the normal health issues because they’re part of every day life. For the past 3-4 months I’ve had sinus problems on and off;  antibiotics sooner would have probably helped nip that in the bud but I’ve ranted about that before, I’m sure. What I haven’t said is that a cough came along with this and has stayed with me. I’m on my third bottle of cough mixture and the little bugger will not give up. My doctor is pretty concerned that it’s been going on since she saw me at the beginning of December – I didn’t see the point in saying it’s probably been longer – and has given me antibiotics to shift it. I have some sort of other virus/infection in my throat so two birds with one stone.

Anyway; why is this entry so hard for me to write? For one it can be quite depressing. While my life is moving on and I am moving closer to my goals, I am also in another year of being constantly ill. Every year is going to be like that and the start of a new year just tends to hammer it home. It wasn’t helped by reading a news article that said that the Disability Living Allowance is being completely scrapped. I think this is old news, but I tend to keep my head buried in the sand – I have to, I don’t have the energy to deal with everything else in the world. I’d love to solve the worlds wrongs, help everyone that needs help, or save the tigers… I just can’t right now. That’s one of the reasons I want to become an author and/or a teacher; to be in a position to make a difference.

I’ve written more than I intended; this entry was supposed to concentrate on my online projects. Before Christmas my muse decided to pop back from it’s long vacation and it has been singing to me ever since. The result was my personal site finally up and running at Ruby-Wings.net as well as my online portfolio HLTrend.com. I also changed the joinables directory to Ruby Wings Listings and created a plug site, Ruby Plugs. There is also the Great Gift Exchange which is a gift exchange site similar to Secret Santa but all year round. On top of all this I have gone back to role playing finally, although I am not running them which takes a lot of stress out of it and I am taking it slowly.
