Needing to be heard

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

Having the flu and a rant about mental health

Hello fine readers of blogs! It's been over a week since I published a post. I had Flu A....and it was horrible.

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…..

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…
