Yesterday’s was aposiopesis and today’s word of the day is presenteeism

Aposiopesis refers to a sudden breaking off in the middle of a sentence. I guess I forgot what I was going to say…This is so indicative of so many of us with Ataxia. I just never knew there was a word for it! All day long yesterday I would tell myself that that I was going to write this post, sit at the computer and then promptly forget what I was going to write about. 😃
Presenteeism is the practice of coming to work despite illness or injury. This seems to often be the case for those of us with Ataxia. We can’t just “sit home” and wallow in self pity. 

It is also working at a job without obligation, like volunteering. This reminds me of two articles I once wrote about my volunteer work:
