Can I Go Back To Bed Please?

Today has been one of those days where every movement is painful and has left me not wanting to move or do anything. Even getting out of bed was agony. I had to get Dave to make me something to eat as I just can't stand because of the pain. I hate these sorts of days.

I feel really bad when I am like this as today Dave and Alex have had to do all of the cleaning, cooking and ironing by themselves. I hate leaving it all for them to do while I just sit there and watch. I am so thankful that I have a husband and a son that is willing to do everything for me. The fact that they will take time out of their plans to do my share of the work and provide me with a constant supply of coffee is amazing. They are amazing!

Anyway I am not going to dwell on the bad in my life. I have been wondering about maybe setting up a blog and sharing one of my journals with the world. I don't know if anyone will find it worth reading and I don't know if anyone will bother reading it. I will not only share my journal but I will also use it as a log for all of my crafts. Maybe even share my progress with my knitting and crochet there too.

I don't know what to do. Is it worth setting up a blog that potentially no one will read? When you all set up blogs did you expect people would read them or even that people would take the time to visit your blog?

Bye for now!

Sometimes, just writing things down helps. Don't worry about your blog being a success or failure as yet. If you write from the heart, which I am sure you will, people will follow you and find comfort. I hope you feel better soon.

Thank you! I always try to write from the heart and I use my writing to help me though the really bad times like today. Writing has helped me accept that I have a condition that isn't going away and I can no longer be who I used to be.

Go for it you have nothing to lose and I bet lots of people will find your journals really interesting emoticon :smile:

I think you'll be surprised how many people would love to follow your blog. It is easy to assume that you are alone with painful conditions and is comforting to read of others in the same position. Including logs of your crafts will also inspire others with what they can do. I say go for it

Thank you! The more comments I am reading the more it seems like the way forward for me.

I never thought if things like that. If I could just help or inspire one person then it would be worth it. Just helping someone from stopping feeling like they are alone would be a big thing for me and would mean a lot.

I have never even considered setting up such a thing. I did create a few websites back in the 1990s, but they were basically just for the experience of doing so.
