Oversharing and what’s your phobia?
Friday, March 1st, 2019

I lost a whole day! I had a procedure scheduled. Ahem, it involved roto-rooting and you get it every 10 years when you reach a certain age… Anyway, it started three hours late. The drugs lingered, and lingered, and lingered. I mostly slept on the long drive home. When I got home around five, I headed straight to bed and didn’t stir until the early morning hours, thus I am writing this blog a little after midnight, but I think it still counts as yesterday, so I didn’t miss my post!

Good news? I’m healthy for a 60-year-old. Or so the doctor told me, probably to make me feel better about the fact I have to go seem him every three years now! The nurse did a double-take on my age. I told her “fat don’t crack, but I really am 60.” I had three polyps, which he removed, and I have a couple small developing diverticula—so no more popcorn or poppy seeds for me. Sucks, because I LOVE popcorn. ๐Ÿ™

What’s Saturday going to look like? No clue. There’s fencing to replace (mu SIL and sis will tackle that) and my dd has to have her hot water heater replaced (I’ll be with her for that because she’s weird about having strangers in her house (everyone has a phobia, right?). But here’s hoping I can get something done!

So, speaking of phobias… Mine is a fear of heights, although I did manage to rappel quite often during college and basic. Not sure how I managed without Xanax. What’s yours?

    My phobia is water…….like being out on a lake or ocean and being stranded. I never learned to swim as a child so I have a horrendous fear of drowning. My husband refused to take me with him to the lake because even with a life jacket on, I’d have a panic attack if my feet couldn’t touch bottom. So embarrassing for him and my daughter.

    Shirley! You and my mom! She can’t have her head beneath the water, not even for a second!

    I have developed a fear of heights. But you were a soldier! Tell all.

    I share your fear of heights. I’m OK if I’m inside looking down but if I’m outside and up high I hate looking down. My tummy flutters when I watch movies that have stunts involving heights! ๐Ÿ™‚

    LOL. I could always rappel because I NEVER looked down. Could not do an Australian rappel though, because you have to go face down. Just could not take that first step.

    I totally understand what you went through. I’m almost 69 (this March) and have gone through that procedure several times. (Still sneak a bag of popcorn once in a while) Drink lots of water after LOL. Really enjoy your books for many years now. Thank you <3
