Month of Thanksgiving

All over social media people are sharing what they are thankful for each day during the month of November.  Because I always forget to post what I am thankful for and then feel the need to throw a bunch into one post, I decided that the easiest way would be to post all 30 daysContinue reading “Month of Thanksgiving”

Sometimes the pain is worth the risk.

I can barely move today….there isn’t one part of me that doesn’t hurt….. This is one of those times when I am unable  to blame anything or anyone for my extra pain.  This flare is totally my fault but totally worth it.  You see months ago we had planned on spending Halloween day at DisneylandContinue reading “Sometimes the pain is worth the risk.”

More tests, less answers

The quest to figure out what is causing the pain in my belly is taking much longer than I had expected.  Of course not being able to poop in a timely manner didn’t help either.  So far an ultrasound revealed a mass in my liver.  Then like magic, the mass was no where to beContinue reading “More tests, less answers”

Will my phone ever ring???

I don’t know which is worse…. Dealing with ever increasing symptoms along with my normal pains or waiting for my test results.  Although I am not a patient person, I have learned to practice some patience throughout my journey with pain.  Never have I wanted or needed test results so badly.  Last night I toldContinue reading “Will my phone ever ring???”

Pain induced anxiety

One hit wonder

Those who know me personally know that I don’t enjoy cooking.  I love eating and trying new foods, but the physical energy and mental concentration that is needed for cooking is too much for me.  Life would be awesome if we could survive on take-out or convenience foods, but that is not realistic.  The problemContinue reading “One hit wonder”

In My Dreams

I have a question for my chronically ill and disabled friends.  Are you ill or disabled in your dreams?   I have been living in pain and with limitations for over a decade.  During this time my illnesses and limitations have never entered my dreams.  That is until this week.  For the first time everContinue reading “In My Dreams”
