It's been a month since I last worked on my blog. Things have been a bit rough with my health and life, in general. For those who know me, or get my blog in your email (thank you!), you know I suffer from at times, debilitating mental health symptoms. The downs and the "what does… Continue reading Let me re-introduce myself…
I've been quiet. My goal back in December, when I started to blog was to do it 5-6/7 days a week. I'd like to lend my knowledge of life experiences and circumstances to those going through a similar situation through my written word. This is one of the reasons I was re-trained, while being on… Continue reading Needing to be heard
March is Auto Immune Awareness Month! Many of my friends have Chronic Illnesses and are Chronic Babes. Us Girls have to stick together. (That is a reference to a friend's book coming out later this year about her struggle with a rare disease.) This is a mini-blog post honoring my dear friend Dani. I've… Continue reading CVS Awareness Day
Hello fine readers of blogs! It's been over a week since I published a post. I had Flu A....and it was horrible. Last Monday morning I started with a body-shaking hacking cough that seemed to blow my ear drums outwards. I helped a friend out with his mobile business and ended up getting him and… Continue reading Having the flu and a rant about mental health
Wellness Mama DIY Laundry Detergent As I mentioned in my previous post, I have been DIY'ing my own natural, and mostly organic laundry detergent, deodorant, and toothpaste since 2012. Shortly before that, I discovered The Wellness Mama blog. I really started to live a more organic, natural, and holistic life. I did not like… Continue reading My next batch of DIY Laundry Detergent
I have been working on a follow-up to my blog on C-PTSD and nightmares. I want to let every reader know that my journey has not been as great as it could have been through therapy thus far. But I keep reaching stumbling blocks. I'm not so sure it can qualify as writer's block, as… Continue reading My latest DIY toothpaste
For those of you who have read this in the past two days already, thank you. It was nice to share with you. I am re-sharing this because I published it less than 24 hours before the big Superbowl, and I don't think it got out to too many people. Domestic Violence is something close… Continue reading Resharing about C-PTSD and nightmares
Link to above Gaslighting article by Alex Myles. Link to EJ article on Anxiety and what everyone should know. I have been trying to write this post since Friday morning. Maybe even before then. But Friday was the straw that broke this camel's back. After waking up in a panic attack 3 times throughout the… Continue reading Complex-PTSD, Nightmares, and Such
This was the view from my bathroom tonight, January 30th between 5:15-5:25pm, EST in North Eastern Pennsylvania. The evening of a Supermoon....which wasn't that big. And the evening before a Blue Moon and Lunar Eclipse. I plan on waking myself up at 5:30am and watching the eclipse, if I can. I have a sneaking suspicion… Continue reading Super Blue Blood…Sunset? And CRPS.
This is me....expressing myself....to my GI/IBS/Fibromyalgia/CRPS/RSD Flare for the past week: JoAnna's Flair in Office Space . The previous clip is from the 1999 Mike Judge film, "Office Space." JoAnna is plagued by her pieces of flair she has to wear, and as you can see, has had enough. There is a good friend, I will call,… Continue reading Let’s talk about your flare…..
