Maybe it’s too soon for Frequently Asked Questions since I’ve been doing this blog for less than two weeks.  Maybe I should call this post AQs.  So, here there are, here are some AQ’s I’d thought I’d answer.  Some of them were asked by real life people, some of them I asked myself.

  1. How often are you going to blog?

As often I can.  I would like to do it every day, but I don’t think I have enough to say for that.   And also, the not feeling well factor comes into play sometimes, too.

  1. Why did you start a blog?

I really don’t know the answer to that.  I had been getting choked up at Walmart quite frequently (seriously), and that day I wrote Bad Luck or Big Blessings was pretty crazy.   All that stuff really happened, and I just walked in the house and started writing while tears we flowing.  The day before, my friend and I were discussing happiness, and how you have to look at what you have and be thankful for that.  After I wrote the piece, I Googled, “free blog” and then copied it and posted it.   After it was live I asked my husband to check it for typos and told him I would probably take it down.  He just said, “That was really good.  You should share it.”  (That’s a lot coming from my non emotional husband.)  So, I shared it.   The next day I woke up with that crazing feeling of, “OH my gosh, what did I just do?”  But, I’m already glad I did it.  My aunt called me and told me a lot of the health history in my Dad’s family that I didn’t know about, and several people reached out and told me it has helped them gain perspective in their own lives.

  1. What’s up with the start and stop situation?

I really want people to share the blog with their friends and family because I think that first post sends a good message.   I just needed to figure out the privacy situation.  Now that I have that figured out, we can share away.

  1. Why don’t you use the names of your friends and family?

Privacy.  But also I think leaving it open makes the blog more relatable.   When I say, my husband, you can picture and important person in your life, and when I say, my son, you can picture your son or nephew or neighbor.  It allows you to apply these stories to your own life.

  1. Do you still struggle with depression?

The short answer to that is, “no”.   However, like I have mentioned before, I am not a laid back person.  I go from happy to pissed in about 5 seconds.   I’ve heard all kinds of explanations for my depression.  The latest being that it was part of the MS.  I’m not sure I buy that.

  1. When did you receive your MS diagnosis?

This is too long and boring.  I’ll talk about this another day. J
