Rifampin - What the #^%@?

Anybody have any side affects with this drug?

Me? Dizzy, fatigue, nausea, severe headaches and brain burn. I think my chest is burning too.

Please Share.

Lyme Sucks!

I'm Back

I haven't blogged for a while. Still sober, thank my higher power -- 11.5 years now.

I've been sick, very sick. I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease which had gone undetected for ten years. It's infiltrated all of my joints, muscles but sadly, it attacked my brain.

I haven't been able to teach this year in a high school classroom. Most days, I don't leave the house. It's too painful. So I write, read and in between headaches, I write some more.

I welcome all who choose to follow my journey

Lyme Sucks.

I am 48. I am a Recovering Addict. I am Fragile... I am a teacher...
She was 48. She was sick. She was Fragile...
Let Whitney be a teacher as well.
Need I say more?

My heart aches... R.I.P. Whitney xoxoxoxox

Honesty... It's a Policy

We're taught to make amends for our wrongdoings -- and live our lives with kindness and honesty. I question, "Is honesty really the best policy?"

My mom always told me, "Susan, if you don't have anything nice to say. Don't say anything at all." With the exception of my critical self-analysis, I've tried to live my life that way. But am I wrong?

Are there degrees of honesty? Does it depend on the person or scenario?
When should we be honest?

What are your thoughts?
Hugs, Sue

SPECIAL REQUEST TO MY FRIENDS & READERS... I'm looking for a few readers to be honest about the first chapter of my book (It's very short -- 12 or so pages). I had a family member read it and said it was great. But that's family. I need an objective opinion.
Let me know in a comment, if you're interested in helping out.

Give up, giving up...

I am honored to report I made it to the Quarerfinals of the Bluecat Screenwriting Competition. Whoo!

No, I didn't write JAWS - that was the great Peter Benchley. And Steven something or other, directed the movie. I just liked the picture - lollll.
Okay, I'm not going to be shopping for knock-off designer red carpet dresses any time soon. But it sure does feel good working on something, without giving up.

Well... that's not entirely true. I almost gave up or what I fondly call pulled a "Sue", but I perserved. I'd like to give someone credit for mentoring me or pushing me to follow through, but it was all me this time. Or was it? Keep it real, Sue...

Can you share any time you were about to give up, but something or someone kept you going?

Hugs, Sue
