Treason – When The War Isn’t Over

My ovaries are being assholes. I bought into the whole “Hysterectomy will change your life for the better” sales pitch two years ago, and while the pathology report on my uterus confirmed it was medically necessary , and I had been in constant pain and misery since starting my period at 12 years old, what […]

June 2nd

Today is my daughter’s 7th birthday. It is also the five year anniversary of my Ehlers Danlos diagnosis. I had the best intentions when I started this blog months ago, after deleting my original blog in a fit of “If I don’t talk about it I don’t have it”. Turns out that doesn’t work so […]

The Struggle Is Real

About that “struggle” I mentioned in my last blog post four months ago … yeah that bitch is real. Apparently I’m the human equivelant of a Rubix cube that just when you think you’ve got it figured out you realize its far more complex then you originally thought. That “brain fog” – such an unassuming […]

Shifting Gears

Admittedly I’ve been off my site or any kind of creative outlet for quite some time.

It’s been almost a decade. My son will be turning 9 in two weeks. My venture into motherhood started with a perfect uneventful pregnancy, and ended with a traumatic delivery that left physical and emotional scars. To say that I had been given sub par patient care is a gross understatement. Had I delivered in […]

Motivation

I’ve been on my fitness journey for the better part of 8 years. That;s almost a decade of fad diets, scheduled supplements, meticulously planned meals containing perfectly calculated portions of carbs and proteins – all of which I swore by until I fell off the wagon. Some falls were harder than others. My gym attendance […]

Sweatpants and Flip Flops – Pulling Yourself Out Of Depression When Everyone Else is Busy Feeling Bad For You

    Over the past few weeks of life taking a giant deuce on me I’ve sat and pondered where exactly things went from inconvenient , possibly borderline annoying to ‘ are you f****ng kidding me all ready?!?!!!’. The amount of horseshit I’ve had to deal with over the most recent months has pushed be […]

Pieces of Your Heart That You Don’t Get Back

  It’s a funny thing grief, not like funny haha, more like ‘do they make lifetime specials about me’ kind of funny. For me, experiencing the loss of a loved one, specifically my grammy when I was 11 to brain/lung cancer, was a very abstract and confusing thing. She had been sick for a long […]

Invisibly Visable

Embrace Your Inner Awesome. God I miss Bradlees … When I initially started blogging ,againĀ ,I tried to keep focus, because that’s what I’ve read, to have a target audience and all. Focus , historically speaking, has never been something I’ve been good at, ever. So today’s topic : Living with a invisible illness that is […]
