Don't Cry For Me Argentina!

Hello my lovelies! Well if anybody keeps track of my writing on my blog you know that I have alluded to having an illness. Well that illness happens to be (and I don't admit this to anyone at all and I really prefer not to talk about it) multiple sclerosis.  And for me I fall smack in the middle of that Venn diagram of multiple categories of people who are more vulnerable to this corona virus in a big way. Because my illness itself causes me to have a disability, also the drug I take for my illness suppresses my immune system so I feel kind of weird to be in this complex state of having an inevitability factor in my life other than the fact that I may or may not end up in a wheelchair soon. 'Cause usually despite the stacked deck against me in any situation I can normally roll up my sleeves and get to work on pushing along and doing for myself. I kind of live my life like Job. 
It is kind of because of my illness that my book releases have lagged over the years, on top of having dead end jobs that take up all my time, and since I'm doing everything myself as far as my series is concerned, I have just been getting used to coping with the increased imbalance and the frequent loss of control over my hands and arm; so I'm kind of not where I thought I would be in my series. So on top of my illness getting worse I'm guessing that doubly increases my chances of dying if I do contract this corona virus. Yeah this is really scary.
I'm only really writing about this now because, I'm not a ‘shareer’, but recently because of certain things that's happening in my life even before all of this corona virus stuff I have been thinking more of my mortality and especially what I would like to leave behind for people who like my work, before I die. I know it's a morbid thing to think about and that is why I mostly don't talk about it, I didn't want people to be reading my work or looking at my art and thinking something sad like “oh no the person who wrote this book has MS” I want people to get lost in the happy-go-lucky escapism of the fantasy series that I write knowing without a doubt that I really don't take the stories that I write or my characters too seriously at all. As groundbreaking as they may be (she smiled with tongue in cheek).
Well, I am a huge fan of the poet John Donne and I really appreciate being able to associate what he wrote, with when he wrote what he wrote, and what was going on with him at the time when he wrote what he wrote. And if anything were to happen to me I would like people who genuinely like and appreciate my writing to know this one little thing about me.
And for all those BS celebrities out there like Evangeline Lily and Hudgens and those brainless spring breakers out there in the known universe, I have lived a not-too-long uncomplicated life and if I've learned one thing it is to expect the evil from people first, then the worst, then the bad then grudging disrespect. And if anybody is nice to you then that person likely has a hidden agenda, which basically means that I have to self-isolate myself from stupid people and I can't depend on anyone else to look after me but me, myself and I. 
And that goes for you guys too, my lovelies; keep yourself isolated and be safe because you never know you might actually have an underlying illness that just has not been diagnosed yet.

 Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said today:

"Now, we have to look at the young people who are getting seriously ill from the European cohort and make sure that it isn't just driven by the fact that they have underlying conditions.
Because we know that underlying conditions, all bets are off no matter how young you are. If you have an underlying, serious medical condition, you're going to potentially get into trouble.”
