No More Justification

Four months. I promised myself I’d write every single day.  Life got away from me. My appointments for doctors and physical therapy filled up my Monday thru Friday each week. I was so exhausted and still am. I am continuing to see new doctor’s at this point. What is weird is how you start out… Continue reading No More Justification

Explain Myself Again Or No?

I find it devastatingly rude when people decide to give someone with a chronic illness advice on something that they are never around to witness.  I will not get into specifics, but I will say that one day I might implode from keeping shit inside.  Just because I am not dealing with visible diseases does… Continue reading Explain Myself Again Or No?

Trying to Mask the Truth

First, Happy Memorial Day and thank you to all of those out there who have sacrificed their lives to protect our country. I think a lot gets lost in the meaning of what the day really is.

Today I Accomplished Nothing

I am so beat.  It’s 7PM, and the last thing I remember is that it was around 3:30PM.  I had been feeling so exhausted to a point where my eyelids felt like they had cement bricks on them.  I have just felt really off for about two weeks now.  My body is very confused and… Continue reading Today I Accomplished Nothing
