The Unlikable

I feel the topic of loneliness and isolation has made a frequent appearance on my blog over the last few years. It's woven into many posts, and has been the center subject of more than a couple for sure. Though, I have talked about how those feelings have shaped my life and continue to do so I don't think I have touched much on the topic of likeableness. I've described it in a few posts, but I think I mostly spoke about feeling disconnected from others, which of course I do.

But, in this post I want to delve into the topic of likeableness, or I suppose more specifically the general feeling of being unlikable.

Freestyle Ramble

It's getting to be be the latter part of October. The leaves are beginning to fall quickly from the trees and the colors are changing from olive greens to yellows and some rusty reds. In Kansas it's not always predictable what type of fall you'll get. Sometimes it might get too cold too quickly causing the leaves to fall from the trees before turning many colors at all, or other times there can be spectacular bursts of cascading colors that lasts into November.

Much like our fall my physical health is this way, especially this time of the year. Unpredictable. A few years ago when the migraines began to take hold I noticed that in fall they would get noticeably worse more years than not. I am kind of waiting to see how this one pans out. So far not much of a change in the norm of how it's been. I was finally able to see a specialist, so maybe a solution, or at least an improvement in the severity is on the horizon? Fingers crossed.

Tomorrow is Bubby's last IEP meeting. Yes. Last. He will graduate high school in May. He will turn 18 in about 2 weeks.

I will let that sink in for a second for long time readers. 😂
