BlogHer Induced Depression

I have only been blogging for a few short months now, but It has gotten me through a lot of tough times, and it's structure that I need now more then ever. I guess you can say in a way, it saved what little peace of mind I have left. I have met some amazing people because of it, as well as, come upon some great opportunities I wouldn't have otherwise had(not to mention all the great stuff I have won through countless giveaways).

So when the first mention of BlogHer 2009 came up, I thought, "Wow, what a great thing! Bloggers from all over getting together like that." It took me a while to realize that it was being held only 2 hours away in Chicago-That's when I got excited! I mean come on, It could be held anywhere else in the United States and it's 2 hours away from me!?

Now that the time is getting closer to BlogHer 2009 and I hear the other bloggers casually(and excitedly) mentioning it in posts and conversations, I'm getting more and more depressed that I, like everything else that usually happens, can't go because I'm too Ill. It's one thing If I was walking-I could possibly go then, I would just need to take a cane and rest a lot. It's a whole different thing if I have to go in a wheelchair.

I keep telling myself to look on the bright side-That I could always find a sponsor and go next year wherever it may be, but right after I tell myself that, there pops up another post of a blogger going.

*sigh*

Sorry for the rant. It just getting to me; I bet I will be fine when it will be all over. Even though I'm sad about not being able to go, I can't wait for all your guy's stories.

Love and Energies.
