Yesterday I received a call from the SLE Lupus Foundation asking about the health insurance I have with the Health Care Reform Act. They gave my number to an international news station, online newspaper. They are coming to interview me today to find out how the health insurance impacted my life. The House is trying to repeal the Health Care Act. They meet on January 12th I believe. Anyway the site is Aljazeera English. I'll post the article or video if they use me.
I started working on my novel yesterday. It's hard for me to stay focused. I remember I use to have no problem writing. I use to write poems and short stories in like one, two, three. It sadness me because writing is my love and it is difficult today.
I feel so isolated and alone and the funny thing I have always felt this way. Even when I was in a room full of people. Just before I became sick I wrote the following poem. I was having difficulty breathing. I was tired all the time and I was just sad.
