It’s All About the Benjamins

It’s been what seems like forever since I’ve shown myself to the online world and I sincerely apologize for that. Most of you know all too well how hard life can be. We usually find a way to persevere but that doesn’t mean it’s an easy process. My downward spiral started when I realized the … Continue reading

A Man With Crohn’s

Originally posted on A Guy With Crohn's:
When I hear the word manly or macho, I tend to think of a guy, muscular, wearing a sports jersey, sitting on a couch surrounded by friends, chips and dip on the coffee table, watching football.  I probably got this image thanks to numerous commercials depicting this. …

The Message or The Bottle?

Being a part of a considerable number of “tummy-trouble” communities, I’ve seen quite a few attempts at promoting awareness. Some have been successful. Some, not so much. With all these PSAs, I began to question not only the message but, the spokesperson conveying it. So, I ask you…

Fleeting Feelings

I’ve done a few of The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenges now. I don’t do them all. I never planned to when I started. After all, this is not a photography blog and it’s just physically not realistic for me. However, I do look at them each week. I ask myself can I incorporate this … Continue reading

Photo of a One Night Stand

Sara over at the Daily Post put out the weekly photo challenge of signs this week. My mind went something like this: street signs, roads, sidewalks, pedestrians, need to walk to the mailbox. No, I thought. Focus. Signs. Sign of the times? Cliché. Signs and crossroads. Hang a sign. Here’s your sign. What’s your sign, … Continue reading

Fried Chicken with Broccoli and Cheese Sauce

Growing up, my all time favorite dish that was served in my house was what my mom called “San Francisco Chicken”. In preparation for posting this recipe, my research came up empty. Meaning, no recipe similar to this one, goes by the name my mom had given it. There are plenty of variations like stir … Continue reading

A Classic Tale

A course of events this past Friday, May 17th, led to something that could only be described as a resounding success for the Gluten Free community. I am so proud to be among this wonderful group of people. We proved that there is power in numbers! We proved that even though Celiac Disease (or gluten … Continue reading

HAPPY WORLD IBD DAY!!!!!! The time has come once again for us to celebrate our disease and spread awareness.  This year I was inspired by CCFA’s poor attempt at marketing IBD.  As you know from previous posts that I was not for their Escape The Stall campaign. …

I’m Gonna Love You Through It

If you have spent any amount of time sifting through my musings, you know that music and I have always gone hand in hand through life. As important as it is to me, I’ve tried to refer to music only here and there, as well as my “listening to” at the bottom of each post. If I didn’t limit … Continue reading

Understanding Mom

I’ve thrown around dozens of ideas for this post all weekend. However, as soon as I had an idea I could sink my teeth into, I’d dismiss it for one reason or another. I’m sure that all my fragmented thoughts will eventually become posts at some point but, that day will not be today. I’m … Continue reading
