It is What It is

That little girl from yesterday Filled with hope, promises and dreams Has long since been replaced After all, nothing is what it seems No, she didn’t ask for it She saw her life a different way But that candle’s no longer lit The world gets a little darker each day She puts up a front … Continue reading

Face Off

If I wrote a book with all the things that I’ve had to deal with over the course of my 30 years, it would be so thick no one would want to pay for the paper to publish it. Paper, like everything else these days is expensive you know. The current struggle I’m dealing with … Continue reading

Love is…

Now, I am by no means a “holy roller,” “Bible thumper” or anywhere close to what most would call religious. I struggle with faith. Always have. After all, what God would punish an 11 year old with such a bad hand? But, I digress. With all the sh** that my life has dealt me, both … Continue reading

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

Dearest Me, I know that you feel like your life is over. All your hopes and dreams seem to have flown away with the birds that you watch so often. I can’t begin to tell you how sorry I am for you. It’s not fair to have your childhood robbed from you. I’m also sorry … Continue reading

From the Mouths of Babes

Mommy, Why don’t you do anything with me anymore? When I was little you helped me learn my numbers and letters and we’d play with my toys. Now all you do is lay in bed or on the sofa watching your videos. You always tell me that you don’t feel good or that your tummy … Continue reading

Where’d ya go?

“Where’d ya go? I miss you so. Seems like it’s been forever that you’ve been gone.” I’ve been putting off writing this for a while now. In my mind, doing so meant that I have to admit defeat. I’d have to admit that I let my C’s and blood pressure issues get the better of … Continue reading

I Am Who I Am

Just about anyone you talk to with a chronic disease will stress to you the importance of listening to your body. Your body was designed to let you know when something is amiss. Therefore, if you listen well enough you can usually figure out what’s going on and if it warrants a trip to the … Continue reading

Chronic Stress Management

Stress management is something that I have to constantly be aware of. If I become too stressed out all of my C’s start rearing their ugly heads and attacking what’s left of my insides. As a mother and a wife, not a day goes by that is completely stress free. Chronic stress is just how … Continue reading
