Friend ends with End

On the MS watch. Monday/Tuesday was no joke. Thursday I felt like I got hit by a truck. It's been a while since I've had the flu but Thursday morning was a good reminder. Headache, back ache, sore joints and that general feeling that I feel like crap. Two ibuprofen and an hour later the aches and pains were gone and an hour after that back to normal. Tonight I shrugged off the cult of manliness, iced up the injection site, pulled the trigger and didn't even feel it. ;-)

Do people realize what comes out of their mouth and realize that their actions totally go against what they just said. I think that's called being a hypocrite. Webster's defines hypocrite as "a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings." The saying is actions speak louder than words which is true. But words mean things. Thoughts and ideas span over time and can not die.

In this digital age of emails, text messages, and even this blog . . . do these words mean anything? Do they make a difference? Or are they just empty and hollow? Those stated thoughts and ideas expressed and denied, contradicted and so many others.

What defines a person today? How do they define themselves? How do others?
