Insecure Writer’s Support Group: Crazy

InsecureWritersSupportGroup

The first Wednesday of the month has come and I almost forgot that today is Alex J. Cavanaugh's Insecure Writer’s Support Group where we tell our insecurities or offer encouragement to one another.

My work schedule is one that changes from week to week. It kind of makes me crazy. This week I’m one day ahead of myself in my mind. Yesterday, I showed up for a chiropractic visit that was for today.

I like how the company refers to it as a flexible schedule. Like it’s a wonderful benefit or something.

But then…to some extent it is, I get to request the days off I want and most times I work a 1 to 9 shift, which leaves the mornings to write. And too, its been helpful because on the Sweetman’s chemo week, I only work the day shifts.

And speaking of Sweetman, he’s got one more chemo treatment. That begins next Monday. This Friday, he’s going for a blood transfusion. The chemo kills everything good, too. So his red blood cells are way too low.

And I want to thank everyone for their prayers, thoughts, and good vibes. If anything we should all wish and pray the best for our bloggy buddies out there.

I’ve read some heart wrenching things out there about what some of you are going through. You have my prayers, good vibes, and thoughts. Heck, I’ll even cry with you.

So I don’t feel insecure, I feel crazy. And I think about all of you through out my day.

Hugs and chocolate,

Shelly

PS I won’t be around today or tomorrow so I’ll have to play catch on Friday and Sunday.

  1. Shelly, I pray everything goes well for your husband.

    I don't have a set schedule, so my work week is chaotic at best. I've just learned to function that way.

    1. Thank you, Diane. Lately, I seem to forget things even though I write things in my calendar.

  2. My prayers are with you and your husband daily. Take some time to just sit back and heal, resting your eyes and heart if only for a few minutes. :-)

  3. Crazy works. Sometimes it's the only way to get through. *hugs* for the the last chemo. That has to be encouraging, that it's the last.

  5. My work schedule changes from week to week, too. But like Donna said, crazy works and is sometimes the only way to get through.

    Hope all goes well with the chemo.

    1. Yes. It is. A silent one at that. Sneaky and sinister.

  10. Best wishes for you and hubby. I hope the treatment is successful.
    Yes, I think 'crazy' is the right way to describe our precious life. We run around so much to live instead of just living. But I guess that's life. Hope the craziness eases up on you soon:)

  15. I have an aunt that has had four bouts of cancer over a lot of years. She said the chemo they use now is not as horrible as it used to be. Sad that she knows that, but I'm glad it's better now. Hugs to you and Sweetman. I wonder if life is supposed to be crazy, and we just think it's supposed to be peaceful.

  19. One of those things where the treatment's nearly as bad as the disease. I've watched several family members go through it. The best to you.

    1. Its just as much a killer as the cancer. And still there's no promises of a total healing.

    Oh, life can be tough sometimes. But you've just got to hang on in there.
