Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired | Day 44

Posted by Edward Ernest | Jul 21, 2017 | Body Image, Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired | 0 |

It started off as a good Fitbit steps day, but eventually, it turned into some nausea and light headedness.

I was so stubborn about making the walk to the office in bad weather that I wasn’t in the mood to do much moving once I got to my desk. This may become a problem, but I’ll deal with it for now.

Besides not moving from my seat for most of the day, I dealt with building this website and all the crap that goes along with it all. I’m a patient guy when it comes to other people and work, but the man I paid to help build the phobia files was behind schedule by two…… months. HA! You thought I was going to say two weeks. Seriously, two fucking months and I’ve never got mad at him once.

So either I’m the fucking Dalai Lama, have no backbone, or I’m just plain stupid. Is there another option? Kinda. The truth is, I’m always someone that goes fast and needs to get from A to Z right away, and that has never worked out for me. Having this guy be slow, in my opinion, was just what I needed. This project didn’t need to rush. I mean, it wasn’t like there was a small window. We are building a world, and the longer myself and the others helping me had time to think of new ideas, the better. So yeah, maybe I am the Dalai Lama?

In reality, this was all just happenstance. My new attitude came along with the change to my diet and exercise habits. I’m still going fast, but I’m learning to slow down a little as well. Creating new characters and building ideas with other people is where I derive most of my joy….. and doing things for others. I won’t forget that part. My work partner, Laurel Leaside, and I, are building this place for us and for you. We see ourselves as a small band of misfits who are going to make some noise and take the mental health world by storm. We want to present the same info you always see but in a completely odd ball/quirky way. We are feeling very punk rock, and that’s exciting enough to propel us out of bed every morning. As long as this never feels like a job, which so far it doesn’t, we’ll be around to make things for you folks to consume.

I really went on a heartfelt tangent there. Oh, you’re getting to see the other side of me. I’m becoming a 3D character in a 2D world. Now you can see me instead of seeing right through me.

I’m gonna end this here. I’m being super positive and not the normal sounding whiny complaining dick that I usually am! Thanks for listening.

Oh, wait. I can’t end it here because I started a story on line one and never finished. Ok, I walked all the way home, got light headed and dizzy. I didn’t feel like eating dinner as I was nauseous, so I just snacked.

Was that the worst ending after that inspiring heartfelt section? You bet your ass it was and I’m damn proud I wrote it too! Suckers!
