SENEGENCE Skin Care Review

April 21, 2018 Uncategorized

Skin Care….. what is the first thing that pops in your head when you hear (or read)?! For me it’s the thought of how expensive really good skin care (and makeup as well) is going to be. But the saying that you get what you pay for is TOTALLY true! When you buy and use the over the counter (in most cases) or drug store products you truly are getting what you pay for. In general cases using drug storeRead More

Why Is Sleep So Important?!?

Sleep…. sleep…..sleep. It’s all my doctors seem to want to talk about these days. I can count on every doctor I see to ask me how I’m sleeping. When I tell them the truth I always get THAT LOOK! A look I’m sure anyone with a chronic illness/pain is used to seeing. Then they proceed to tell me why I need to sleep more. That being said I’ve always wondered how much of a difference sleep really makes. And whyRead More

Don’t Leave Me Out

If I had a dime for every time I’ve been told by a friend or family member that they didn’t want to tell me something or invite me to something because I’m sick, I would be RICH!! I’ve been left out of all kinds of news and events over the last few years! News about a new baby or a new job, or that someone lost a job or was struggling with something, or being left out of a funRead More

Dear World….

Hello world! This one is for YOU!! No matter how hard we try there are always going to be some level of judgement within. But most of us keep that judgement to ourselves, and don’t stare people down or make comments when we think they shouldn’t be using that wheelchair, or parking in a handicapped spot or even just wearing a mask out in public. That being said many people don’t keep those judgments to them self and they makeRead More

How I Really Feel About…….. Pain

Pain….. is something I deal with daily. And I am guessing that many of you do as well! It has just become a part of our daily lives and something many of us don’t give a second thought to. And most of us would give anything to have one pain free day where nothing hurt at all without having to take a pill to get that way. That being said it has become a BATTLE for some to actually getRead More

The Things I Wish Someone Would Have Told Me

Even though I’ve been diagnosed with Lupus, Fibromyalgia, and Endometriosis there are still things I come across that I wish someone would have told me about. You all know what I’m talking about, those little “tricks of the trade” that people who have been dealing with that condition for awhile and no one shares with the newbie. So after having a discussion with several people across several different groups, I have complied a list of things by asking others whoRead More

Finding Support

February 7, 2018 Uncategorized

Support is essential when you are living with some kind of chronic illness. When your life changes and your health declines you feel more and more alone. At first your family and friends can’t seem to understand what you are dealing with. They try but in a lot of cases they really can’t understand what we deal with daily unless they live it. Sadly, as your health declines you often lose much of the support you did have, because peopleRead More

You may have likely heard a LOT about going red for women lately, as February is Heart Health Awareness month. But was does Go Red really mean, Well, according to Go Red For Women the Go Red for Women initiative started in 2004 due to the fact that women were not paying attention and often dismissed the thought of heart disease. As they saw it as an older mans disease. So the Go Red for Women initiative was started byRead More

Finding Self Acceptance

In general a person’s feeling of belonging starts with self acceptance! In fact a person’s level of belonging, can never be greater than your level of acceptance. This helps you to believe that you’re enough and also gives you the courage to be authentic, vulnerable, and imperfect! Finding a feeling of belonging is hard and sometimes almost impossible until you can find a way to accept yourself. But how does one go about finding self-acceptance!?!? Since this is an issuesRead More
