May 23, 2018 Uncategorized

A dear friend of mine, Bethany writes an awesome Christian blog, (which I’ll link at the end) and she recently contacted me asking if I would be willing to share my testimony and how I found God through my chronic illness. I was truly honored that she would think of me to be a guest writer for her blog, because she is a much better writer and her blog is so very good. That being said after the honor woreRead More

This post may contain affiliate links Everyone deals with joint pain of some sort from time to time, especially as we get older.

The Ugly Truth About Chronic Illness

The ugly truth…… the lives of people who are chronically ill are often not what you may think. Most suffer a lot more than they are willing to share. We fight something everyday, whether it’s pain or fatigue or just feeling bad overall. And naturally we don’t want to seem like we are always negative.

PRODUCT REVIEW- Carbon Coco Teeth Whitening System

I am sure that you’ve seen the recent big trend in dentistry all over the internet. The trend I am speaking of specifically is the use of Charcoal Toothpaste to whiten teeth and provide more benefits than other toothpastes.

May 9, 2018 Awareness, Flare, Illness, Pain, Sleep

When it is 3AM and you are awake for your sixth day straight from painsomnia, it is hard to see anything good or nice in pain.  When you have a chronic disease such as Lupus, Fibro, Rheumatoid Disease, or many of the hundreds of others auto-immune diseases pain is just a part of life that sadly you live with.  Pain is a function that warns us that something is wrong.  It is our body warning us of danger in theRead More

Dear Lupus…..

Dear Lupus, You came into my life with asking, without an invitation. You came in and made it known by all that you were GOING TO BE THE CENTER OF ATTENTION. Who asked you to come? Who asked you to come into my body and take my life away?? I sure as hell didn’t. Looking back you made yourself known and reared your ugly head the first time when I was in highschool. Although no one called you that. TheyRead More

What You Should Know About Allergies

Most would agree that some years are worse than others, and this year Nany feel like their allergies are going to get the best of them. Even though we have seen just about every kind of weather possible this “spring,” (I won’t call it spring yet!) everything seems to be blooming already. That means that for those who suffer with allergies and chronic sinus infections, this time of year (and fall) can be very frustrating and miserable. Allergies are notRead More
