Today I ran into some matters, doctor related and personal that torqued me up that I feel I want to blog about, but I don’t know if my husband would approve of all and sundry who read my blog to know or hear about them…
I don’t know if my male readership will want to read about women and their medical problems…I don’t know if I should share so personal a side of my heart, soul, and health problems…
Then again, I don’t really like to be stifled. It so happens that by accident, call it my computer ignorance, stupidity, naivete whatever but by a twist of fate I joined LINKED IN and was then Linked In to all my husbands business associates. Whoops! Big mistake. Whenever I posted a new Blog it let them all know about it. I’m sure they just deleted it or read it and hated it or liked it like anyone else, but he was not amused. Neither was I. I was very embarrassed, and rectified the situation ASAP! I deleted myself from LINKED IN immediately having only joined at the behest of an old friend and an old business acquaintance. I never knew we would overlap and my business, my blog, etc. would bleed into his life.
Now, the conundrum remains. Do I post my personal womanly medical information for all to see or do I now start another blog anonymously and then post?
I post as an outlet to work out my problems, in my head and as I read the written word. I reread my blog, fine tune it, keep rereading it even after having published it and still keep fine tuning it.
Sometimes the problems I have are common to other people so sharing them, discussing them helps more than myself. Sometimes people who read give me good advice, sometimes I just want to rant!
But it is MY BLOG! Do I, shall I have to watch what I say when I will only be speaking the truth? I am writing nothing hurtful, nothing nasty, just a discussion on doctors, medical problems, jargon, etc. I just don’t know what to do.
Men may get squeamish, or even blush, my husband and sons might feel uncomfortable, but they don’t even read this blog, and no more do the co-workers know about it…
Does anyone have any suggestions? Any feedback please feel free to share. . .
