BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD
OUTSIDE OF SOCIETY - THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
I'm alive...

I've been very ill lately, the long and short of it is that I got some sort of wierd stomach bug last week that has wreaked complete havoc on my digestive tract over the past several days. It's astounding when I think about it, I've eaten (and kept down) in the past three days what the average person consumes in an average meal. I've dehydrated myself and gotten weak and dizzy from simply standing up too quickly. All in all I've felt like four sacks of shit with a side of smashed assholes. I'm not kidding, this thing was terrible. I won't go into details, but suffice it to say, I've drank half a bottle of Pepto Bismol (feels stomach lurching yet again) in the past 18 hours. I had a reasonable dinner earlier (a simple vegetable plate from Country's) and though it is still feeling like schrapnel in my stomach, I'm keeping it down. The chamomile tea is also helping soothe my angry tummy. Okay, enough of that.

Still reading through my lj_abuse stuff, so bear with me erin and rahaeli - I'm a few days behind on covering documentation, but I'll have the brunt of next week to myself to devote more time to it. I'm mostly finished, save for the last bits, and am going to reread the entirety of it so as to have it fresh in my mind. That and I hope a reread will put it all into better perspective.

I feel very weak and shaky, but my strength will come back in a day or so and I'll feel closer to 100% by the end of the week. I'm still excited about the weekend, Damien's best friend Brian is coming into town to spend the day with us on Saturday and then we're headed to Atlanta on Sunday morning.

By the way, all of you should be as lucky as I am to have the sweetest, cutest, most attentive and otherwise wonderful man in the entire world for a partner as I have in Damien. I swear, he amazes me with his kindness almost every day. He's also funny as hell when he's not trying to be. When I told him today that he deserves much better than me, he agreed very stoically with "Yeah, that's true" and I laughed out loud for the first time in a week.

For some reason or other, I've been thinking a great deal about my friend arie over the past few days, so wherever you are my sweetie I hope you're safe and well. I keep you in my thoughts and send you good energy. If you're up to it, come to Pride on Sunday and I'll see you there!

Kisses and hugs for all who need them tonight...

I've got a Dr's appointment on Thursday. It's to see if I can take the brace off and switch to doctor approved sneakers (I have to bring them with me so he can check them :P). If I get it off, I'll come to Pride. If not, nothing on this earth can drag me down there in Georgia heat with this thing on. :P

Didn't I tell you? The parade is for YOU! YAY!!!!!!!

I understand about the heat thing, it doesn't bother me at all. Matter of fact, I kinda like it. But I'm wierd that way.

Have you ever been to Pride before? It's amazing to see that many people unified in celebration of freedom and equality.

Hope the Doc gives you the A-ok and that all is well, I send more good energy...

I don't usually mind the heat. This thing is just black and insultated. Hot and sweaty is one thing, but having that sweat absorbed into a giant sponge and strapped to your leg is a whole other thing. ;)

I've never been to Pride before. I'm really looking forward to it, so hopefully I'll get to go this year.

Eek. I hope you are feeling better by the time this comment reaches you :) Just get the reading done when you can, taking about a month to do so is fairly normal, so if it takes you a month, it takes you a month :) I'll be around...somewhere...if you need me.

Awe... and I love you back. :-) And despite all the shit life throws at us, we both know in our hearts that we'll get through it all together.

and I laughed out loud for the first time in a week.


That's my job, and I take it very seriously. :-)

Sorry you're feeling so yucky. I hope your running at top speed again soon. I just love Country's. When I lived in MGM I used to eat there quite abit. And I know exactly how you feel about your partner, because I think I'm married to the greatest guy in the world too. MichaelNolan deserves so much better than me, but I ain't complaining, he's stuck with me now and I'll just continue playing the hand life has dealt me and be happy with it. Get better soon.

I adore Michael, he's the best. I'd give anything if you two could come to Atlanta Pride on Sunday, that would be so great!

awww *blush*

I doubt we'll be able to be there. We've got too much to do with trying to get moved.
