Woke up to a sinus headache,

So what, right?


But not quite my usual

“Warmed-over-death” ill

Despite the throbing knot

Bridging my neck,

and the left side of my skull,

I still felt “Do-er.”

I followed that intuition,


Slowly I moved throughout the daylight.

I broke free willingly for a nap,

Woke feeling the same

and marched forward focused.

The night came on and passed

And I woke the same.

There is no happy ending to this,


But the slow and careful middle

is happy enough this time.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
