SBQ – February 15, 2006

  • Posted on February 16, 2006 at 11:24 am

Today’s SBQ was suggested by Heather
and is:

Comment on your comments (giving and recieving): Do you love comments or hate them? Do you check them every day, never check them, or find them helpful? And finally, are you convinced no one is reading your
blog if you don’t get any?

This is a great question, thanks Heather!

I just LOVE comments! Each one is emailed to me when it is posted on my blog, so I read them every day. I am immensely grateful for all of the love, support and assistance I receive from people through comments.

Because they are so important to me, I try to comment whenever possible on the blogs that I read regularly. My biggest problem is that some blogs require a Blogger account, which I don’t have.

I am not “convinced” that no one is reading my blog if I don’t get any comments, but I will check the counter and wonder if my post just didn’t grab anyone. I try to keep my posts interesting, so sometimes I take a lack of comments as a hint that maybe I’m whining too much and need to kick things up another notch. 😉

I really like to use my blog to tell interesting or funny stories, but I’m so busy that I often don’t have enough fodder to write something interesting or witty. I might have to stretch my creative muscles a little bit to try to keep people plugged in. 😀

I do want to say, though, that I appreciate the time that everyone takes to comment on my blog. I know how long it takes me to read through all of the blogs that I keep tabs on and trying to comment on each one whenever possible takes even more time. So, a big THANK YOU to all of you, even any avid readers who choose not to comment. Thank you for reading and welcome to my life! 🙂

I don’t have much to say, but I did want to report that today I took two Excedrin for the first glimmer of a headache that I’ve had since last Thursday! Almost a week without a headache! And this one went away quickly. 😀

If I could only express what a huge deal this is and how much it means to me! I really can’t put it into words, but my mood have been elevated over the past week, I’ve been much less anxious (for the most part) and I have felt more relaxed than I have in quite some time.

I don’t know if it’s the Neurontin that the neurologist prescribed or the work with the psychologist or both (most likely), but I think I’m starting to feel better! I did my “homework” this weekend and wrote a letter to my Pap. Oddly enough, once I signed my name to it, I actually felt a sense of peace. I shed a lot of tears in the process, but I feel less intense in my sadness around his death now. My next psychologist visit is tomorrow morning and my next neurologist visit is next Thursday, so I’ll have had a slew of eventful Thursdays over the course of a month when I’m done! I’ll give a report after tomorrow morning’s visit. Here’s to hoping that it won’t be as teary an experience as last week! 😉
