Hrmph 1: I had an upset tummy all weekend, and diarrhea. I felt weak from it and called in sick today. I searched the 'net for information about the herbal supplements, was relieved to discover that they truly are harmless but that it may be necessary to cut the dose if one gets diarrhea. The pills are for cleansing the gut and moving any constipation, but surely my gut is cleaned out by now. I cut my dosage today, from 6 daily pills to 4, and ran to the bathroom only once. The 'net also said I should stick to a vegetarian diet and avoid sugar as well as milk. However, my acupuncturist never told me any of that (except for the avoid milk part). Not a confidence builder, that. I'll see her again on Monday, and decide then if I should continue seeing her.
Hrmph 2: I don't like criticizing people. Bringing up my dissatisfaction with my acupuncturist's lack of information is not something I look forward to. But, it may very well be that we do not communicate well, that not only did she not tell me everything I needed to know, but I may not have told her everything she needed to know. But who knew?
Hrmph 3: Blogging daily. I feel - dissatisfied. I lead a very quiet life so you, my dear reader, just got the same topic that is so popular in nursing homes: Bowel movements (subtitled: What Are They and Can I Get Some?) I also depend on my mood for inspiration. I've never thought of myself as a Moon child (influenced by the Moon) but I can tell by my own introvert-extrovert cycle what sign the Moon is in. Some days I'm an extrovert, other days I'm an introvert and on those latter days, I don't want to tell nobody nothing. But Blog365 makes me, and now I'm wondering if my simple posts, my uninspired "must says" (this is one of them; sorry about the digestion mention) are worth it. The truth is, I want to offer something more - substantial. I read other people's blogs and some are so inspiring, are so well-written, and that's really what I want to offer. But with this daily schedule I no longer have the luxury of just resting, waiting for inspiration and/or spending a few days polishing a post. Now I end up doing a quick hunt for something - anything - to post. It's not what I want to do to my readers. I miss feeling inspired, feeling that I need to write, to tell you something. Right now, this feels like a chore. Posting daily without having daily things to tell sucks, and I'm sure it shows in my writing.
