It’s my blog. I can vent if I want to.

Some days are hard. Living in this broken body sucks more than you know. It’s more broken than some of you will ever understand. I will never, ever see people that knew me before. I mean, of course I will see the people around here. I have no choice in that. But, I will never […]

Sicky sick, Father’s Day, and wormholes

I have been so, so sick this weekend. Thank God J made me go to the doctor in Friday, because it would have only gotten worse, and I can’t imagine much worse. Everyone else had allergies, but thanks to Imuran (my immunosuppressant), it turned into bronchitis with a weird ear infection in the ear I […]

Normal is a double edged sword

Count me in the normal category again, if by only one crappy thing. I have never rejoiced and cringed at the some time before. I did today! Tmi alert. I’m gifting you the knowledge that tabu subject matter is coming up right now! *Fair warning … look away* After TEN months of not having my […]

Homework I can get down with

Why am I dead tired, until about 11:30pm rolls around, then I’m not sleepy. Ugh. Well, lovely followers, today was my second to last OT appointment. I spent half the time reassessing from my first appointment, and the other half crying. Poor Melissa, my OT. She said I need to get my mental health and […]

It’s been 10 months

I wrote this article back in December. I’m not going to lie, it made me a bit sad. I’m the one who lived it … is living it. It made me a little mad. Even small hospitals are trained to recognize stroke symptoms. It’s doctor/nursing/cna 101. They have posters in every room depicting what to […]

Monday Monday 

Happy new week, campers! It’s going to be a good one! I can feel it!! New weeks are fresh starts, and I’ll take that any day.  I have so much in my agenda. I have been down, for whatever reason. I don’t know if it is the new meds, depression over having no control over […]

Just another manic Wednesday

Hey y’all! And the week just keeps moving forward.  I had OT today, which meant getting up entirely too early and driving to Duke. I don’t know if it’s being off the chemo, or coming down from the prednisone, but these symptoms are awful. More of the same, just intensified. My OTherapist, Melissa, and my […]

It’s Been Awhile …

My poor little neglected blog. It has been a crazy, fast, busy, full month!! On one hand, chemo made me feel awful. It made my hair fall out, gave me peripheral weakness, and knocked me on my butt for two- three weeks. On the other hand, I now don’t have anything suppressing my immune system. […]
