I’ve had a bad migraine for two days, and my hand is still hurting. I know part of the migraine is being caused by emotions that I just don’t want to talk about. I’d probably feel better if I did, but sometimes talking about things just make it worse, for me at least, especially when it’s something beyond my control. I’m flying to Alabama tomorrow, and I’m dreading every bit of it. There is absolutely nothing that I’m looking forward to while I’m there. So, I’m a bit blue at the moment. 

It also doesn’t help that I have to go to the dentist this morning. I hate going to the dentist.

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

    I understand your pain Joe, and will be saying some extra prayers for you. That said, it says a lot about you that you’re going to Alabama. It’s sad so many people aren’t comfortable with their families, but we can choose our friends but are cursed with relatives. Remember anything said by them reflects on THEM, not you.

    Hope that the dentist visit went better than imagined. I hope that your trip is not terrible. Praying for you, but praying more for your family that love might enter their souls and change them.

    I’m so sorry hon, this is a very hard time of year that causes lots of stress and mixed emotions. Big hugs and prayers that Alabama will be at least bearable for you.
