Wish I could. Can't type enough to write anymore. It's raining and I hurt so bad today I can hardly use the computer or pen.

I am so sorry. People always imagine it's the mental blocks that keep people from writing not remembering that there can also be physical ones. I hope you feel much better soon.

It's time to learn to use my Dragon dictate. To learn to dictate with my voice and let the computer type it.

At this time, I feel absolutely torn into so many fragments, negatives and positives, each warring with the other, like Platoon's young private or corporal.

There are still times when the desire to go back to the old way of living, be it last week, or last year, or ten years ago, or even a comparison, of what I think it was is at war with my new skills and way of looking at the world. That is, to me, what Rhah calls, “possession of our souls.”

“I think now, looking back, we did not fight the enemy; we fought ourselves. The enemy was in us. The war is over for me now, but it will always be there the rest of my days, as I’m sure Elias will be, fighting with Barnes, for what Rhah called, “possession of my soul”. There are times since, I felt like a child born of those two fathers. But be that as it may, those of us who did make it have an obligation to build again, to teach to others what we know, and to try with what is left of our lives to find a goodness and meaning in this life.”

Maybe take that paragraph, enlarge it, print it out, and post it somewhere that you'll see it daily and use it as your inspiration. It inspires me!! Life can only be lived one day at a time. Congratulate yourself for those days where you treat yourself better than in the past and those where you don't, forget about them and move on. I know. Easy to say, harder to do.

My husband has used Dragon and says, while it will save you many keystrokes, you will still need to edit and learning it's commands is very important, but all and all worthwhile. Let me know how it goes for you.
