Doing the right thing…

I so wish I had refused when CT Meek messaged me ”’From now on I am your editor”.

To be honest, I felt intimidated and did not a scene. Well, there is certainly a scene now. When I saw that friends were in his group, I told them of his theft. The one who reacted most strongly is the one who is now libelling me on fb. All the others left his group or blocked him without a murmur.

I got more uncomfortable while submitting my poems. He is not a kind man. There were threats. The only good thing about it was his foreword, which was very complimentary and in line with other reviews.

It is hard to stand alone when you know someone has done wrong, stolen, deceived. And then to find out that someone like Syd Meats doesn’t hesitate to jump in and speak badly about some post where he was the only idiot.

Courage to stand alone is the motto on here, my blog. Alone in my health condition, not understood symptoms, let alone anyone having heard of it. It is amazing how doctors respond. Some treat the symptom only, some want to know more, and others are arrogant and think they can ignore what they don’t know.

I do feel alone. Even my closest friends don’t understand my illness. I can’t expect them to. As far as I know I am the only person in the world with my health condition. There are a few with my disease, but not the intervention that now cause respiratory failure.

I've read poetry since I was nine and have written creatively since I was fourteen (probably long before that). After writing book reviews and social comment, I decided I wanted to write poetry. I have no formal training, but I surround myself with poets and their writing. I am honing my craft.
I have two published collections which I don't feel good about, but have been published by and other publications. I live on the south coast of England with my daughter. I am seriously ill.
