In the Creativity Dumps

I need to get a kickstart on my writing career. This past year, after quitting my job at the gas station, I’ve endured fibro flares and complete lack of attention. Oh, and mood swings per usual.

No thanks to the pain clinic, I’m back into the swing of things. Things are great mentally, not so much physically.

My first pain clinic appointment, I was forced to pee in a cup, lectured about “perceived pain”, and treated like a pill whore for asking for tramadol. I know my body, I know what helps. It’s like I asked for morphine. After all this, I had to do x-rays on my upper back, lower back, and both knees. I have to wait until the urine test results come back before they’ll help me at all.

Anyway, back to the point of my post.

I have all these wonderful jobs to apply for and online publications to pitch for. Unfortunately, my creativity is drained. I have a few ideas but I need creative spins. I don’t like this lack of creativity.

  1. I know it’s tough but I admire the fact that you have goals and want to start submitting your writing. I am also sorry you are dealing with such bad health issues. For me I have yet to publish any kind of writing outside of my blog and social media; too much fear and I wouldn’t even know how to go about doing it. Just do what you can and write when you can. I hope things get better for you

  2. I’d love to connect. I’d love to share some things with you and I have some questions for you, if you’re willing. Ways to reach me are on my blog, if you want to. I have fibromyalgia too. I, literally, feel your pain right now. No fun at all!
