That liminal space with you
A place to ebb & flow
Into each other
Into one feeling
So, I have hair again. And it's curly! First professional haircut & color (yes, I'm a natural Blue) since I shaved my head in '07.
Less and less I can tolerate wearing this
What used to be shield has turned to anchor
So done with false regard
I yearn to be truly seen
Maybe try being strong without being tough
Have you made " tough" into a wall that keeps people from seeing you vulnerable
But it also keeps people from seeing that you seek connection
It's not weak to want
It's not weak to need
My hemoglobin is at 12.7, the highest it 's been in 10 years.
Friends say the difference is amazing.
Yet, I cant get my Ferritin levels to stick. I was at 22 in Feb and have dropped to 15.
My wonderful hematologist was practically gleeful when talking about sending a camera inside me too see what my GI tract looks like.
The only way out is through
I just have to do it in order to fix this for good.
