I just feel so cheated!

So I’ve been doing a wee bit of research into blog themes.. what people write about in their blogs. (This is what I do in between posting on my blog, watching food TV and drinking wine..)

And during my research (hmm, I wonder if I could get a grant to do this full time?) I’ve noticed something.

And like I said: I feel cheated!

Cos every 2nd blog has a page (in some cases 2) devoted to some illness that blog-owner has. And some of them sound pretty nasty! Geez, earlier today I saw one that had something along the lines of Fibro and Milo and Otis – all – as you might expect – wrecking havoc in this one poor woman’s innards!

But going back to me feeling cheated.

Why do I feel cheated?

Well HECK I don’t have a page devoted to how diseased I am.
And I feel left out!

Maybe I’ll invent my own!

I can see it now .. 
Cue: Doctor’s surgery.
Serious musack playing in the background.
Dr puts on best “bad news but I am sure I can help make you comfortable thru’ the process” face.

“I’m sorry to tell you this (Dr to patient) but the tests have come back and ..

You have”:


What about this one then:

Seriously, blogging about one’s poor health seems kind of .. odd. I guess a blog is an avenue for people to vent or rant on any theme but to dwell on ill health just seems unhealthy somehow!

But by heck if I ever get sick, ya’ll are gonna hear about it right here in cyber space!

Cos I know the world needs to know about my latest in-grown toe nail!
And it cares.
