I’m Bored with My New Toy

I'm bored with my new toy. I am ready to go back to being an ordinary person without illness & to give up all this navel gazing & self analysis & pain & support from friends, both spiritual & secular & all the immobility. Oh, yeah. Crap. It doesn't work that way. I have to carry on with being ill. It's depressing, frankly.
