I'm tired.......

I'm tired of:
  • Saying, "It is what it is."
  • Keeping a stiff upper lip.
  • Being brave.
  • Carrying the load.
  • Wearing the armor.
  • Faking it.
  • Hiding the pain.
  • Walking funny.
  • Seeing the look on friends' faces.
  • Asking for help.
  • Feeling frail.
  • Not being able to smell the honeysuckle.
  • Being afraid.
  • Not knowing when.
  • Moving slowly.
  • Avoiding people.
  • Being such a wimp and blogging about it.


  1. I'm not tired of listening...

  2. Tux,
    You must a glutton for punishment. :-) Thanks.

  3. I think CBGD entitles one to some bitching -- I'm mentally striking the last bullet in my mind about you being a wimp.


  4. Donna,
    I think my next post will be about our society equating courage with suffering. Thanks.

  5. COURAGE: the power or quality of dealing with or facing danger, fear, pain, etc.
    'Courageous wimp'... an oxymoron, you're not, CW!!

  6. Stumbled across your blog while looking for pictures of carpets for kids. Don't know why your living room came up.

    Anyway, very sympathetic to your plight. I understand terminal degenerative illness very well. My father recently passed away of pulmonary fibrosis and I myself have cystic fibrosis. I'm being considered for transplant and am on IVs as I type. I can relate to a lot of your feelings in "I'm tired..." and look forward to what you say about society equating courage and suffering. Peace.
