Longing for the Sea.

Sometimes I dream of the sea. I can taste the sea air, feel the water on my body and the water fill me with comfort as I dive below. I’m never human in these dreams, but a creature of salt and spray. They’re wonderful dreams. I actually wake up rested, which is unusual. My mantra these days is that I’m tired of being tired. I’ve long been obsessed with the sea.

The Other Side of the Coin

I started to write this blog post last night, and got so far as an outline before I found myself in the middle of a panic attack. There were some lovely lovely people from Tumblr who talked me out of my panic so that I could talk to TheBoy about it. I tried to vlog this- but it turned into a sea of inappropriate laughs and tears. But I said it, which meant I could write it. All I ask is that you try to see this from my POV. I’ve written a lot about my health issues. The Crohn’s,…
