Something bad has happened to me today and it will make it even harder for me to write and to communicate with people. Typing has become impossible now, and I will always have to use my Dictation software.

I am in a great deal of pain and using my iPad has become even more difficult and I can only use it for a short period of time. This means that I will not be responding so easily and quickly as I have been doing. I am able to write my poems and my little bits of prose okay and I am learning how to post them without seeing what I am doing but it is very very hard to learn. I am not doing too well at the moment and also the dictation software does not always work correctly and it hears words wrong way and sometimes what is written does not make sense. I have yet to discover how to rectify this problem. However as typing has become virtually impossible for me it is what I am going to have to use. I know that other blind people possibly use this and for them it may work correctly but I don’t know.

It has been a bad day today as more things have happened to me physically and I have been in a great deal of distress. At this moment I feel very black as even more of my life has disappeared from me. I will still be writing my poems however and I can assure you that though I may sometimes express the blackness and the pain there will be many that are more cheerful and more palatable to my readers. I do hope that you will be able to bear with me and still continue to read my poems and the things that I write. I have been very grateful to you my readers over the months because you have all been very kind to me. I know that most of you will stay with me and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.


  1. Sending you best wishes.
    I have mentioned you to my mum about you this week, how I read your blog. I read some of your poems to my mum this week as I stay with her, as mum writes a lot of poetry too. As well as reading a variety of your poems to my mum, I remembered to finally read to my mum your poems you wrote about fleas once. This was because of remembering how much I laughed when I needed that, but also as I read your flea poems the first time round, I was thinking that I am sure I read a poem of my mum’s about a worm. Which she did.
    When I am back home at the weekend, I shall be sending you an email of two of mum’s many poems she’s written. One is the poem about a worm that hopefully you will find funny as I did and the other poem, I can’t remember what it’s about off the top of my head. But my mum wrote these two out for me to write out in an email to you, for you to read. Which she hopes you will like. Xx

    Liz I read your response last night but was too tired to reply. Your words moved me so much. Thankyou SO much. I am so touched about your mum, and that you tell her about me, and that you read her my poems. I am also so touched that she is sending me one of hers. I really really look forward to that. This is just so lovely Liz, having contact with your mum as well, through you. Also when you said how my flea poems had made you laugh at a time when you needed it. Thankyou for telling me that Liz. That moved me so much. I find it so hard to post that when I hear things like that it encourages me so much. My hands have gone now, and are in great pain. I have them all strapped up and that is why typing is so hard. In addition to all the other things, it just felt so bad. And the pain in them is bad too, so in addition to all the other pain that I have, I felt overwhelmed. I felt bad that I was not going to other peopke’s blogs and also responding to comments on mine was becoming harder and I ended up in tears trying to keep up. I also was in tears because this with my hands is permanent and it was just another bit of my life gone. It felt SO black yesterday. But yoyr words cheered me up so much. I really look forward to reading your mums poem. Lots and lots of love to you Liz xxxx❤️❤️❤️❤️

    You are one of those in WordPress who always inspire me and give me encouragement, and I hope I could give you encouragement and help you the same way you helped me. You’ve had it tough, yet you still fight back and that takes a lot of courage and passion. Pain shows in your poems. Even so, they are beautiful, and a part of you, and I will continue reading them.


  5. Much love Lorraine. Hold you close in my heart and prayers! Please write and post whatever comes to you – all your words bring light to all of us. You are awesome and amazing! hugs, love, and many, many prayers.

  7. Your readers, of which I am new, are all speaking truth and love, Lorraine. You must only do what you can, and take good care of yourself. You are a HUGE inspiration to the world–with your lovely young spirit of faith, hope and joy–and I enjoy your writing very much. You will feel better, I’m sure–and learning new software can be SO frustrating…so just take it slow and easy. Breathe, dear ❤
