How to continue?

I have been thinking over the last few days, or so. How I should approach writing of this sort. In other words, how, or indeed if, should I write about this day-to-day stuff? I think so. I have a great deal to say -- as my life continues to change and progress, and as I deal with this illness. Even if I don't put down a whole lot, writing is part of coming to terms with things. I feel better about what I'm doing and I can understand things more clearly. So, I am not about to put the pen down (so to speak)!

I'm having trouble gaining mental clarity, at the moment. I just can't seem to get my head straight. It means that I have more difficulty understanding situations, and also getting things done. Sometimes, getting something very simple finished, can be close to impossible. It takes much longer to do most things, than I would like! The simpler and more mundane the task, the harder it is for me to do. I'm trying to keep on top of the pain, too.

The 'brain fog', as it is called, is entirely routine for my illness -- but it makes life difficult. Now, the sort of order and planning that would help most people, is simply confusing. It can be frustrating, but it's worth it.

My iPhone has made it much easier to keep up with e-mails, contacts, and calls... it's great! I enjoy the community of The Internet; but I always prefer to go slowly, and not to be bombarded with people and messages.

I'll just keep writing. I've been reading Kafka, and Philip K. Dick. I always look forward to getting my hands on some more audiobooks and music. It's astounding, what's out there.
