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
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."

I meant to post this yesterday, Saturday, January 20th, 2017, but I got distracted....sometimes I have a mind like a sieve...enjoy the update. Nothing too spectacular today! Sometimes, you just need to get up, get out, and do something different than what you have come to know as your new normal. Yesterday I had the… Continue reading Slacking on my blogging…
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
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…
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
Hello!!!!! I got socked with a migraine Monday night about 8:30pm, after posting my last blog update on being a Guinea pig. I took my night time meds, including the brand new propanolol at 8:15pm, and by 8:22, I was feeling funny and had to lay down. I was out of it and couldn't move… Continue reading migraines and cool surprises in the mail
As some of my close friends know, I am really into meditation, herbs, supplements, essential oils, etc. Basically mindful thinking and plant and mineral medicine. I have been working really hard on living in the present moment for the past 5 years. (And it is REALLY a struggle some days!) I have been meditating off… Continue reading Stress & Meditation thoughts
