Spastic (the economical version)

Yes, my title is controversial. But my writing speaks candidly about my experiences:

Some of the words I have written here will hurt those who matter: and for that, I am sorry.
But I cannot lie about what I feel when I write for myself.

These words record a part of my self that I wish to remember. And so I continue to write: in the hope that in time, my words will bring me to that point where everything is forgiven. (Extract: Home)

‘Spastic’ is used here in its original medical context. Derived from Greek spastikosdrawing in’ or ‘tugging’, meaning:

a. Of, relating to, characterized by, or affected with or as if with spasm
b. Characterized by hypertonic muscles (the interruption of nerve feedback loops between muscle and brain)

The following video evidences that my condition is correctly described.

This video is NOT suitable for children; or people who are easily distressed.

This is me. Now. That’s this post’s subject.

This piece was written and submitted as part of’s Weekly Writing Challenge. The writing challenges are designed to “help you to push your writing boundaries, show off your blogging chops, and, hopefully, spark more post ideas”. The posts should be specifically written in response to the challenge set.

This week’s challenge was to “remove all the words unnecessary to conveying meaning”.

I used the Spastic .. and sh!t post because it is quintessential to my blog. It discusses having a Functional Movement Disorder. I intend an economical re-edit to improve its impact and readability.

You can see how other bloggers responded to the challenge, on Papa Says Get Economical.
