One of the blogs I usually read...The Naked Ovary
decided to ask everyone today how THEY were doing - since a blog is a place where we tell you, the world, wide internet how WE are doing on a daily, or almost, or OK, school starts Monday - ACK, weekly basis, I liked that she turned the tables around...
this was my response to her:
I am overwhelmed with the grief of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
I am ANGRY at people that compare it to September 11th. I live here, dammit, I WATCHED the fucking first tower fall, don't you DARE compare it.
I am bitter at everyone on my fertility friend on-line supprot group that has gotten pregnant by just looking at sperm, and we NEVER got pregnant after 14 medicated IUI cycles.
I am anxious that my boss and I missed a scheduling glitch and will have some MAJOR fixin' to do come Monday...
I miss my girlfriend/partner/lover/what is the PC term these days? She's in California, and comes home to me on Sunday
I am sad by the loss of the relationship between my mother and I - she doesn't have all of her "there" there, and it hurts to try and remember that.
I am grateful that you asked how I'm doing, and that you ACTUALLY want to hear the answer. I, as well, am SO fascinated by those that ask it all the time, I simply reply: "do you really want to know, or do you just want to hear "fine, thanks, and you?" Because if they want to know, I'll tell them. And most of the time, I'm happy and content with my life, and happy to tell them that, too - just today, however, today, I have a lot of feelings swirling around, and I think I'll copy this post and post it on MY blog, and ask them how THEY are doing.
Thanks for letting me tell you how I'm doing today.
I pray your wait gets shorter and shorter...
So, dear internet, I ask YOU - "how YOU doin?"
Please feel free to share. honestly.
