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.

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.

A few weeks ago the owner of a relatively new online Boutique reached out to me. She found me in one of the local Facebook groups. She had recently started the shop called Five Plus Ten Fashion and she was trying to get her name out there. So we struck up and deal and I got two great pieces. The first piece I got was this long sleeved Tee!! It is so soft and cozy. I practically lived in thisRead More

Taking Life For Granted

January 18, 2018 Uncategorized

A person never thinks about all the things we do in a day or a lifetime that we take for granted, that is until something happens and our life changes.  We are just so used to running out and jumping in the car and running wherever. To the store, to the gas station. Or to being able to leave the house without having to find someone to go with you. Working outside the home is something that you do becauseRead More

Is It The Cold or The Flu?!?!

January 5, 2018 Awareness, Illness, Uncategorized

Let’s talk about the topic that seems to be on everyone’s mind. Colds and the flu. Not the stomach bug you might pick up, but the big bad bug. INFLUENZA!! This is a dangerous bug for those of us who are immune-suppressed/immunocompromised. Where a normal person might only be down for a few days, those of us who have Auto-Immune diseases could be down for weeks. Or even end up hospitalized and critically ill. So it’s nothing to mess aroundRead More
