Day 134 – Cobwebs and my Once Upon a Time

Art Apple - Day One Hundred Thirty Four
Art Apple - Day One Hundred Thirty Four

My mind has been full of cobwebs.

Not the good kind of webs – not the kind that interconnect and tell a story, but the kind that fog up your thinking. It happens to me when I stretch out my infusion dates (an attempt to save money) and go from my usual and effective 5 weeks to 6 or even 7 weeks.

I find it interesting that it isn’t only my body that is affected by waiting for the Remicade but it is my ability to think straight, concentrate, and feel creative. Of those three things, the most important for me to draw on right now is the ability to be creative and I’m struggling. It drives me crazy really, but it is part of my once upon a time. My story is a web of so many disparate pieces that have come together to bring my art and my passion and my need to share Ankylosing Spondylitis with you. So even when I don’t feel like I can think straight or create anything – as long as I focus on my mission, my passion, I can have faith that I’ll come up with something to share with you and have my… once upon a time.

Until tomorrow.
