Soak it up

Look inside my eyes
I know you’re watching
Look at my demise
You know you got me
Feed me all your lies
And I just soak it up, soak it up, soak it up, baby
Thought that you were mine
But you ain’t down
Ain’t down
~ Johnny Rain – LLWH

Love is Love

June is PRIDE month. For a community of people that have had to hide who they really are from employers, family, friends, and especially the public…this is a huge deal. Living your life in secret is not only unhealthy, but its simply not a good way to live. Being able to step out into the light, declare your validity, and love who you love openly without shame or fear…THAT is an amazing feeling, particularly if you’ve been hiding it all for most if not all of your life.
I encourage you to join the inworld groups Second Pride (inworld link: secondlife:///app/group/e8560935-aa78-1703-8e9f-09e6f32c72a5/about ) and SL Pride at Home : Shoppers (inworld link: secondlife:///app/group/8fe743be-b9f2-abd9-5e27-82d948034302/about )

I Miss It

My hearts seen things I wish it didn’t
Somewhere I lost some of my innocence
and I miss it
I miss it
Stay up all night thinking it’s twisted
My life’s been survival of the fittest
But I did it
I did it

If Life Gives You Lemons

They say that if life gives you lemons you should make lemonade, but what if lemonade gives you heartburn? I say there are lots of ways to use lemons. In fact, I could surpass Bubba Gump and his uses for shrimp if I started listing all the things you can do with lemons. Soooo, if lemonade gives you heartburn, like it does me, then make lemon cake or lemon cookies or use it for cleaning or use it with chicken or fish….you see where this is going. The point is…if life gives you lemons, you’re ahead of the game! Now, if life gives you crabs….well, you might need to slow down and see a doctor.

The Other Side

I don’t want to know who we are without each other
It’s just too hard
I don’t want to leave here without you
I don’t want to lose part of me
Will I recover?
That broken piece, let it go and unleash all the feelings

Did we ever see it coming?
Will we ever let it go?

We are buried in broken dreams
We are knee-deep without a plea
I don’t want to know what it’s like to live without you
Don’t want to know the other side of a world without you

Is it fair, or is it fate?
No one knows
The stars choose their lovers, save my soul
It hurts just the same
And I can’t tear myself away

Did we ever see it coming?
Will we ever let it go?

We are buried in broken dreams
We are knee-deep without a plea
I don’t want to know what it’s like to live without you
Don’t want to know the other side of a world without you

Our hope’s gone up in smoke

This indecision’s got me climbing up the walls
I’ve been cheating gravity and waiting on the falls
How did this come over me, I thought I was above it all
Our hope’s gone up in smoke, swallow your crown

Choke! On a kiss, I thought I’d save my breath for you
Choke! On a kiss, I thought I’d save my breath for you
Give me some rope I’m coming loose, I’m hanging on you
Give me some rope I’m coming loose, I’m pulling for you now
Give me some rope I’m coming out of my head, into the clear
When you go I come loose
~Foo Fighters – Rope

Fire Away

You’re a real tough cookie
With a long history
Of breaking little hearts like the one in me
That’s okay, lets see how you do it
Put up your dukes, let’s get down to it

Why don’t you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

A little happier

My therapist said something really enlightening the other day and I haven’t stopped thinking about it. She said, “The most thankful people tend to be the happiest.” This took me back to a time in my life that I kept a gratitude journal. I would start and end every single day by writing about something for which I was grateful. It really did make a huge difference in my daily perspective. Sometimes it was something as simple as being grateful for a bed to sleep in, as there have been times in my life when I did not have such a luxury. Sometimes it would be something monumental, like being grateful that my mom is still alive and annoying me. The funny thing about gratitude is that when you find yourself looking at your life for things to be grateful for, you find more than you thought you would. Suddenly, your perception starts to change. So, it makes sense that we would be a little happier. *winks* So, today, I am grateful that someone has taken the time to read these words. That’s right, today I am grateful for YOU. ♥

Looking too closely

This is a song about somebody else
So don’t worry yourself, worry yourself
The devil’s right there, right there in the details
And you don’t wanna hurt yourself, hurt yourself
By looking too closely
By looking too closely
No no no no…

Put your arms around somebody else
And don’t punish yourself, punish yourself
The truth is like blood underneath your fingernails
You don’t wanna hurt yourself, hurt yourself
By looking too closely
By looking too closely
No no no no…
No no no no…

You don’t wanna hurt yourself
You don’t wanna hurt yourself

And I could be wrong about anybody else
So don’t kid yourself, kid yourself
It’s you right there, right there in the mirror
You don’t wanna hurt yourself, hurt yourself
By looking too closely
Mmmmmmmm
By looking too close
Mmmmmmm
Yeah…..
Looking too closely
You don’t wanna hurt yourself
You don’t wanna hurt yourself
By looking too closely

What I’m dealing with

I’m really not even sure how much I’ve talked about my fibromyalgia. I think I mentioned it a while back and about how someone suggested that I’d become one of those people that post memes about it all the time. I do my best not to whine about it. People ask how I’m doing and I usually say I’m alright. No one really wants to hear about the trials and tribulations of living with this incredibly wretched disease. A lot of people don’t really know what it is and on that note, I took the liberty of grabbing this definition from the Mayo Clinic’s website:
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. 

That’s putting in the plainest terms possible. It almost sounds like a list of possible side effects from one of those prescription med commercials. To give you a genuine look at what it feels like would almost be impossible. There are good days and bad, but the bad days are so awful that its often too painful to even get out of bed. If you’ve ever had the actual flu (not a bad cold that you called the flu), then you may have experienced a rather small percentage of  fibro like pain. It can be quite similar. Even that is not a fair comparison, because some days it feels like I’ve been in a car wreck and I’m covered in bruises. While other days it feels like every nerve ending I have is on fire.
There are days when I can’t sleep and there are days when that’s all I can do. There are days that I’m extremely motivated and days that I can only describe as mental vacation. It’s like my brain just checks out and I can’t focus to save my life. Then there are the mood swings. I could be in the best of mood and then a wave of pain washes over me out of nowhere. I can’t imagine anyone would handle that particularly well, but when your moods are already questionable it makes matters much worse. As a result of all this, I’ve become much more reclusive than I once was. I tend to isolate which can lead to loneliness, but at least I’m not at risk of lashing out at anyone for no rational reason. Meh, I’m in the middle of a bad wave of pain…spent most of the day in bed…so that’s why I chose to write about it now. I hope it wasn’t too much of a downer. I tried not to make it whiny, but there are times when I just want the world to understand what I’m dealing with here. *shrugs*
