I will let you know where each item can be found. First let’s start with one of my (and my fellowRead More

10 Ways to Survive The Holidays With Lupus

We’ve made it through Halloween and it’s almost the holiday season again. For most it’s a joyful time, but for those with chronic illnesses it can be quite the opposite. It can become a time of worry and planning. Planning how to make it through all the parties, the cooking, the crowds etc. A time of worry about the germs we will be exposed to, if we will get sick, when we can squeeze in naps, and how far inRead More

Medical Research with Antidote

Medical Research is a topic I know I can’t be the only one interested in. Sadly, when you have chronic illnesses like I do, you hope and pray for medical research to be conducted on your conditions. Without medical research, many of us wouldn’t be able to live the lives that we are living. For me and many other Lupus patients, Benlysta (Belimumab) has given us part of our lives back. Without this med I only have a few GOODRead More

The Grass is Always Greener 

You know the saying you’ve heard since you were a kid “The grass is always greener on the other side?” Well, I’ve realized in the past few months that this applies to more than just cows wanting to eat from the other side of the fence. That there really is more to it!! It definitely applies to working in the home vs working outside if the home. It seems like those that get to stay home or work from homeRead More

Epilepsy, The System Shocker

What is the first thing you think of when you hear the word “Epilepsy?” What about “Seizure?” Normally, people think of someone on the floor convulsing. What they do not realize is that there are over 40 different types of seizures; some of these you will never know the person is having that seizure unless you know exactly what to look for.

It’s true once you’re diagnosed with a chronic illness or a multitude of chronic illnesses your life changes. Not just simply Your Health either.  Your social changes dramatically.  It seems like your friends start dropping like flies. Some can’t stand the sight or the thought of you being chronically ill. While others can’t be bothered with your “flakiness,” and don’t understand why you can’t make plans in advance or why you will cancel at the last minute.  But with aRead More

 PRODUCT REVIEW!! Senegence’s Newly Formulated Concealer! 

Alright, so as a women you all the importance of a good concealer. In all the years I’ve been wearing makeup I’ve never found one that I felt did a good job. They seem that they either don’t cover the bags under my eyes, which is a MUST for me. Or they aren’t the right color, they may be too yellow or to orange so they don’t match my skin tone. Or it takes so much product that you feeRead More

Working From Home…,,

Okay so I don’t have a “real” job anymore thanks to my Health. But honestly, what is a “real” job anyway?  Is it real because you have to get dressed, do your hair and look presentable? Is it real because you actually leave the house to do said job? Is it real because you have coworkers that you interact with in person, or because you have an office?  All those things don’t make a job “real.”  They are just thingsRead More
