Feeling Restless

*This was written a few weeks ago. I’m finally publishing it now. I feel restless. My mind craves something, but I can’t pinpoint it. It’s like my brain is starving for stimulus. I want to do lots of things but I can’t quite figure out what. I’m trying some new things hoping it’ll satisfy myContinue reading “Feeling Restless”

What is this Strange Feeling?

I’ve been feeling strong. I’m feeling good! I feel amazing! I’m trying not to get too attached, but I truly enjoy each day of feeling good. I’m exercising, learning, having fun, being active, …acting normal. I’m even walking more than I have in years! I have a theory for my surprising strength and overall wellbeing.Continue reading “What is this Strange Feeling?”

Ride the Wave…

I think I’ve definitely come out of my long winter flare and I am enjoying every second of feeling (almost) normal before its over. I think I’m currently at my peak. Keep in mind that a peak for me is about 85-90%, compared to a healthy person at 100%. I won’t complain though. This stillContinue reading “Ride the Wave…”

Happy 420 Everyone!

Today is April 20th, aka 420, aka the day of celebration for stoners everywhere. I think this is a good time to talk about a subject that is becoming less taboo in recent times. Marijuana, pot, weed, 420, cannabis, reefer, grass, and the many other names that are used to describe a delightful little plantContinue reading “Happy 420 Everyone!”

Living Life 2 hours at a Time

There’s this idea out there that if you (…or I) just think positive, then whatever is ailing us will just magically disappear. Like “have you tried not thinking about it?” or “You just need to be more positive”. As if the reason for my pain and illness is because I think about it too much.Continue reading “Living Life 2 hours at a Time”

It’s Only Hair…

…Except it’s so much more than that. Hair is such an important part of one’s identity. When you look at someone, you immediately notice a few things. Their face, their clothes, and their hair. Some people keep the same hair their whole life. Others change it frequently. They experiment with color, length, and various styles.Continue reading “It’s Only Hair…”

In Limbo

I seem to be stuck in some kind of sick limbo. I think I’m starting to come out of a months long flare. I say “I think” because I have been very inconsistent overall. One day I can feel good enough to be productive at home or even go out to the store. Another dayContinue reading “In Limbo”

Snow Day!

Yesterday was our first big snow of the season. We had a Nor’Easter which gave us about 7 inches of fresh, fluffy snow. I love the snow but only when I don’t have anywhere to go. This is also the first snow in our new house. The landscape is absolutely gorgeous! We have such aContinue reading “Snow Day!”

Leveling Up in the Disability Game

Like many people who suffer from a chronic illness, I require the use of mobility aids. I had a very hard time admitting this to myself. I was admitting defeat. I couldn’t function like everyone else anymore. I had to accept a new term to describe myself; DISABLED. It hurt! I couldn’t accept it. IContinue reading “Leveling Up in the Disability Game”
