I haven’t blogged in awhile, and there are so many reasons as to why. First one, I’ve been ridiculously busy with work and recovering from having a giant cyst removed from my lady area. Plus, I have been spending as much time as I can with the new boyfriend because he is awesome and wonderful. Seriously, I am smitten with this guy. My personal life has been nothing but aces lately.
I feel like something is missing, though. I miss writing. I mean, I write every day at work. I miss writing and advocating. That’s what Get Up Swinging was supposed to be about, right?
If I had a nickel for every time I have heard someone say that government shouldn’t be in healthcare. then I’d be able to pay off my house. I know I’m completely biased when it comes to healthcare talk because of the whole having cancer thing. I wish people would understand that healthcare is political, from the mundane to the major.
Get Up Swinging will start taking a deeper look into the politics of healthcare. I ask anyone who reads this on the regular to give me a chance and might be going, “Girl, I am here for your rants.” I’m a writer, a researcher, a patient, and biased as hell. I’m not even going to pretend that I”m not as I examine these topics further.
This. Is. A. Blog.
I am tired of feeling helpless whenever I read the news or scroll through any of my feeds. It’s time for action.
