I Told You I Was Sick!

This is an old post, but since I cannot write anything new now, I thought it was appropriate to repost it. This is how I feel now!!!!

I am sick.

I am sick of being sick.

I am sick of being told I am not that sick.

I am sick of doctors telling me I am depressed and giving me anti depressants — six so far.  None worked. They made me worse.

I am sick of being in bed, tired, not able to do much but sleep, read, and listen to music. Even when friends call it is not easy to talk. I get tired. But I do appreciate phone calls!

I am sick of people urging me to get up and walk. I am not Lazarus. They may mean well, but I simply cannot do it. My body, not my mind, is not responding.

Soon, this is what they will all see:


About martisima

After over 50 years of teaching literature to undergraduate and graduate students, I feel I have earned my retirement (it happened when I was 72, five years ago). I do miss the classroom, however, but not the meetings and all other requirements of the profession. I love teaching, and wish I could still do it. But now I read for pleasure, and watch films, and listen to all kinds of music (no TV, though). I love to travel, and hope I can resume doing it soon. I need to get over my health issues caused by thyroid surgery three years ago!
