I am realizing something the more I attempt to write: I am having a horrible time bringing my thoughts to a close.
Things also seem to be quite disjointed as well. It is something that has frustrated me for the last few years.
Since the onset of the fibromyalgia and the fibro-fog that accompanies, I have a hard time with coherent sentences, thoughts, whatever. It’s hard to hold conversations with impatient people because my sentences don’t exactly form in a coherent fashion and it annoys people.
It annoys me too. I used to write poetry all the time–and though much of it was dark, it was also rather good if I do say so myself. (see here if you’re interested in reading any)
So, something like that. It comes as a result of a conversation yesterday where I was trying to explain my feelings and my dear friend and mentor. She was able to understand my jumbled string of words. And when she restated what I was trying to say, I responded with “something like that.” She has a gift for taking complex thoughts and sentences and simplifying them in a way my mind is not willing or able to do.
When I said “something like that” she said “that would be a great title for a webpage.” Well, it’s now the title of my blog. I feel that it fits because as I explained above, my sentences aren’t always the most coherent. So, I’m often attempting to find different words or the person I’m speaking with is trying to rephrase what I’ve said so that they might understand. Yesterday was not the first time I have said “something like that” nor will it be the last.
And perhaps I should start ending whatever I write or type with that phrase. I’m kidding. But it does seem appropriate.
Or something like that.
