    Being Common, Being Famous, the Past Life & the Real Life

    Being Common, Being Famous, the Past Life & the Real Life - #DwhellOnIt Episode 64

    📺 - tinyurl.com/2p988rxn

    🗣 - "Sure, there are #trans #individuals who had their sex assigned at birth by a doctor who has never known them. And accepted by people who assumed they knew what was best for you. And then followed office administrators #stamping papers and typing on keyboards. Assigning a gender identity to someone who never even had a voice in things, let alone having a voice, period. And then, #saying , 'No, my gender identity does not align with my sex assigned at birth.' Thanks for that, by the way, everybody."

    #saying Hi

    In October 2020, on an leisurely RV trip to visit relatives in the Boston area, I suffered bilateral pulmonary embolisms. Since then, I’ve also been diagnosed with COPD/emphysema. This is on top of the RA and spinal degeneration that I’ve been dealing with for about 20 years. So many of your posts about chronic pain and ‘the new normal’ resonate! It so great to find a community that really gets it❤️

    #saying goodbye # former life # accepting a new life

    everything changed for me 18 months back, I've had diabetes from a young age, it's been a roller coaster, but I've manged, but then I got struck with gastropersis just 3 days after having my e emergency c section for my son. since then life has never been the same, but I manged to pull my stomach into remission, it took 5 years, but with lots of research, diet changes, meds, exercise I manged it, somehow, anyway my body tricked me into thinking I could be " normal " have a " normal " life, I went back to work, and worked my way to where I wanted to be, while training along the way and enjoying being a mum, I finally found a job, that was perfect, term time only, great support net work, lots of learning to be done, so rewarding, i loved my job, i enjoyed going, i looked forward to going back after half terms, 1 year in, and I'm excited because this is the first summer holiday I'll get to spend with my boy who at this point is now 7 almost 8years old, then 9th august, I went into flare up, my stomach went into crisis, diorrea, feeling and being sick, bloating, acid reflux, stoma h cramps, up all night, I tried to fight through, work reduced my hours, I still pushed and pushed, but no, my body came to a point where i could no longer do it :( it took me 3 days to call the head teacher for that chat. I havent felt the same since, I thought I'd retire at my last job, I thought this is it! I've finally found something I love! but no my body has other ideas for me, my question is I suppose, is how do you get over this??? my heart aches when I think about my job, the kids and staff I worked with, I miss working, I miss getting up and having a purpose for the whole day, I miss meeting new people and learning new skills, how do we say goodbye?
