Life Can Make a Liar Out of You


In my post on Wednesday, I discussed how I haven’t been able to take a nap in the afternoon, even though I was tired. Well, by the time school was over yesterday, I was so exhausted, I could barely hold my head up. I think I might be coming down with something because I ached all over. This was not just a headache, it was body aches. I wasn’t running a fever though, which was good. I got home, got undressed, and went straight to sleep. I woke up a few hours later to check my phone for messages and to answer a phone call, then tried to go back to sleep, but this time I could only lay there. I eventually got out of bed and got something to eat, then I went back to bed. I did some reading, some work, and watched some TV. Eventually, I fell back to sleep. I hope I continue to feel better today. I really don’t want to be sick. Sunday, I am supposed to go with my mother to see the 75th anniversary showing of Gone with the Wind. I’m excited to see it in the movie theater, and to see my mother see it in the theater again. She saw it on the 25th and 50th anniversaries. It’s her favorite movie and these tickets were part of her birthday from me this year. So I need to be feeling better.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
