This is NOT WEEK 6 UPDATE.
There. I said it. Whew.
You may realize, while watching the video, that I was not on top of my game this week during filming. First and foremost, when I apparently believe we are 6 weeks in on the Shaving My Head Bald updates. Even more ridiculous is that I didn’t even catch it until the video had made it all the way to Vimeo and I was ready to schedule this post, yesterday. Yah. So, I deleted all that; edited the 6 to a 5 (in text), re-rendered, compressed, and uploaded a second time. Which took hours. ONLY to realize that none of that mattered because I had actually spoken the words in the video – week 6. It’s not. We are happily still in week 5 and this here is week 5 “hair” update – discussing my condition.
I’m not complaining. I’m simply pointing out what certain aspects of this condition do to me when I’m having an off day or week or whatever. Confusion, memory, cognitive – I know it seems small; for me it isn’t. And though I am not beating myself up over it, I want you to know that these days, in order for me to produce the same level of quality as before this befell me, things often take a considerably longer time to accomplish.
Again, not whining about it. Say it with me, folks – it.is.what.it.is. I can only hope you’ll remain patient with me and that I can work better on being more patient with myself.
Moving on? Let’s begin discussing my condition…
Week 5 “hair” Update – Discussing My Condition
Yes. I know it is another long video. I probably could have chopped another 5 minutes off if I had taken out the stops and starts and stuttering. I needed you to see. I make no apologies for it. And I’m not being negative here. If you’ve been reading or watching me for any length of time, you know that is NOT my M.O. As we move forward here at Informed Sharing, I will begin sharing more about my story, as well as offering other information that will help all of us afflicted with this (often painful and confusing) condition.
I say what I mean and I mean what I say. This does NOT define me. Or you. And there are ways to live better with Fibromyalgia. We are taking that journey together – you and I. Shaving my head bald was just one way of taking control (crazy as it may have seemed to some), but there are so many other ways in which we don’t have to let this condition take over our lives. I hope you’ll join me on the road to better health and living with Fibromyalgia.
Oh My Gosh, I almost forgot. THIS POST went (mini) viral over at StumbleUpon this past weekend. And though I wasn’t able to fully enjoy that (from the bed), it was super exciting to know that folks were getting a kick out of it. Stay tuned for more of those hair types (perhaps with less of me involved, haha) of posts, coming soon. Thanks to all who stopped by! ♥
This video belongs at Hair It Is! There IS hair talk going on within. However, once I begin discussing my condition (through videos and posts) in more detail, I will create another page for those personal and informational shares. Thank you sincerely (I mean what I say, I said…) for watching! ♥
