As many of you have noticed, I am writing this blog less often. Writer’s block, I suspect.
I have writer’s block myself. That why I am writing less often. I was on two boards of directors and I left both because I wanted more time to write.
Unfortunately, I ended up in the emergency room on Saturday night with an intestinal blockage. I learned that either its Crohn’s Disease or cancer. I go in for colonoscopy and biopsy on June 12, 2018. I had colitis as a young person, severely and I suspect it was Crohn’s all along. My mother had it, too.
Cancer does not run in my family although I don’t know my biological family’s medical histories. But needless to say, I write less with this medical situation. But I did quit the boards of directors that I was on to get more time to write. Also the fibromyalgia and the exhaustion prevented me from writing. It was getting worse, but I started on a ketogenic diet and my knees don’t hurt and I have more energy.
I am using hypnosis. I work with a psychologist who has mastered hypnosis. We’ve done it three times and I accept about 65% of it. It goes up every time.
I created the affirmations that are in the hypnosis trance. They were taken from how I feel when I am prolific. I have certain quirks that I use when I am writing clear and strong, and those are in the hypnotic trance. I bought a book of affirmations from Louise Hay and they make sense to me. I think I will gather some of them and send them to the psychologist who will add them to the trance.
I cleared off much of my desk and cleared off more as I took a break. I cleared off the keyboard so I can type. I used to type so quickly on a manual that the secretaries at Michigan State would come and watch me. I find it harder to write on a computer but I am finding it easier now that I am practicing.
Clearing my desk off was one suggestion in the trance, and the one I was balking at.
So that’s done. Now if I obey the rest of the suggestions in the trance, I’ll be home free, able to write more blog pieces and the book on depression.
