Some of my favorite things today

I did not have a previous agenda for tonight's blog. I was, however, going to write a blog this morning on week 5 of my Hempworx CBD Oil trial, but Word Press was a bit messed up, and that time has passed. Then there was the pain in my CPRS/RSD foot that made me crawl back into… Continue reading Some of my favorite things today

Safety or Growth?

Today has been a day of safety AND growth for me.  Safety, because I did alot of introspection and meditations since awakening. I believe there was learning, and therefore growth today. As I sit here drinking my Sleepytime Extra tea, which I've grown accustomed to tasting....I am trying to think of all I did today.… Continue reading Safety or Growth?

I am but a humble mermaid, trying to dance…

Some major foot pain today with the post-op 2nd reconstruction and the CRPS/RSD pain. My foot has been incredibly cold all day, despite being in two pairs of socks the past 6 hours. And the ones closest to me, those super fuzzy aloe vera-laced ones. After having my awesome boots on for the evening, I… Continue reading I am but a humble mermaid, trying to dance…

Spinal Cord Stimulator, on the way! (Maybe.)

So today was the 2nd part of the psychological evaluation for the Dorsal Root Ganglion Spinal Cord Stimulator to treat my CRPS/RSD in my right foot and leg.  My doctor was very nice. I can understand the very in-depth written exam on my pain and how it effects my life, that I completed about a… Continue reading Spinal Cord Stimulator, on the way! (Maybe.)

To Fear or Not To Fear

No matter what you fear or do not fear, you will still go down the path. That's what the above quote means---to me, in my opinion.  I really wasn't sure what I wanted to write about tonight. The above is yesterday and today's quote from the new Zen calender I got at Michael's yesterday. Anxiety… Continue reading To Fear or Not To Fear

I want to Believe

If you are an "X-Phile" like me, now, you see, "I want to Lie." After this week's showing of Season 11, Episode 1 of The X-Files.  No, I don't want to Lie, I WANT TO BELIEVE. It's something I even carry on my person every day, as you can see from the above pictures. Yesterday's… Continue reading I want to Believe

feelings of being worthless…

This week has been a shit-storm of bullshit feelings of the poopy kind. First learning that my secondary insurance was suspended or cancelled. Dealing with the horrible lady from the office...Her Royal Bitchiness. I've been dealing with HRB for about a decade. And it's never a nice phone conversation.  Not knowing the status of where… Continue reading feelings of being worthless…

Playing Catch-up

In taking some time off from certain technologies, we were supposed to go away for a few days to Chincoteague Island, VA for New Year's. We were looking forward to watching the Horseshoe drop at midnight on New Year's Eve in the town square. I was especially looking forward to doing my second Polar Pony… Continue reading Playing Catch-up

When people let you down

It's inevitable. People will let you down. That's why I went into veterinary medicine and have animals. Sometimes I just feel like giving up on people, or not trying so hard anymore.  Sometimes it's hard to do those Tiny Love Challenges and Be the change. Sometimes I just want someone to dote on me for… Continue reading When people let you down

Merry Christmas Eve, I am ill.

Chronic illness symptoms can get you at anytime. I was all prepared to do my DIY Christmas present projects, plus more DIY laundry detergent and DIY toothpaste. I had to run to the store for some last minute gifts for my dad, as I got my mom more than my dad. Which is usually what… Continue reading Merry Christmas Eve, I am ill.
