I am amazed every day by the way one's health impacts their everyday capabilities. For example, when sinus infection hit late last fall, I found that I lost my ability to focus. I could stare at the computer screenj for hours and not accomplish a single thing and what I did manage to write was absolutely terrible. To this date, I have not written a single thing worth talking about. Now, I'm wondering if I ever will again, since the spinal stenosis is gaining ground on me. Is it just the constant pain that does this to me? I could better understand this if I was taking the type of medication one would associate my problem with, but I'm not. I avoid pain medication since it impacts the effectiveness of other medications I am taking, none of which would explain it.
I have made a comittment to myself to do some writing every day, even if it is less than stellar in quality, in an effort to force mjy mind back into the writing mode. I'm doing some extra reading as well in the hope that this will trigger the writing instinct, so wish me luck.
