What pops into my head though is that if a person is always needing to defend themselves against a constant element that means one becomes a permanent gray rock = losing oneself, its like the very definition of voicelessness. I guess the assumption is that it only needs to be used on a rare occasion. Reading this makes me want to escape. Escape the gray rock, throw the phone onto the receiver so the other person hears a dead end tone. Well shrug. I'm not very good with relating though, I just want a break from relating but somehow I'm also just plain lonely. Who knows maybe I should explore gray rock and employee it towards customers.

My older sister got married last week, second marriage for her and her new hubby, very small, very simple, register office and then the pub afterwards and the nicest thing about it was that no-one else from our family was there so no drama, just a group of people chatting and having a nice time.  Never happens if my mum is around Smile

I understand!!!!  I remember when my brother got married the first time and the NWomb-Donor made an A$$ out of herself at the reception!   Razz

Need to vent!!!

I've been dealing with Shingles for over a month, living with nerve damage and pain from it, so I am NOT in the best of moods!  I had to go to the grocery as the pantry was running on empty.  While at the grocery, I encounter an acquaintance who wants me to participate in a social event, this weekend, that requires stamina that I don't have right now.  I explained that I've been ill for over a month and I'm not up to socializing yet.  His response?  "But you're out of your house now!"  What part of the concept, "NEEDING FOOD" is NOT understood?!?!?   Razz  It was all I could do to bite my tongue and NOT flick off on him!!!! 

Aw, Bones, people like that drive me mad!  I get it with my son: "Well, he looks okay at the minute" - that's because he's been in bed for three days recuperating!  I find those are the times when I love someone to say "oh gosh, is there anything I can do to help?".  It's so appreciated, even if there's nothing they can do, because it makes you feel heard and that you matter.  You did well to bite your tongue, I tend to be rude Smile  I hope you start to feel better soon xx

Thanks, Tupp!!

I have ZERO patience for idiots who think that people with Invisible Disabilities "should just suck it up" and do what they want!  Karma is gonna get 'em!
