I am Only Human

Yesterday I was sitting on my lounger next to the pool watching my 6 year old son and my 5 year old nephew swim together…   I’m  amused by their imagination as they make up random scenarios to act out together.  It is early September and the weather is very mild.  It is a comfortableContinue reading “I am Only Human”

Summer Nights

My last post was all about feeling exhausted and fearing a flare. I can happily say that about a week later and I’m feeling pretty good, but a bit delicate. As long as I pace myself and rest often I can function, or at least have some fun. I am just taking it day byContinue reading “Summer Nights”

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…”

I can’t do much improvement on the physical part, but I can focus on the mental, emotional, spiritual, and social parts of myself. I find it important to set goals for myself. Otherwise IContinue reading “Finding Happiness”

Snow Day!

This is also the first snow in our new house. The landscape is absolutely gorgeous! We have such aContinue reading “Snow Day!”

Today was a Good Day

I woke up at 7:30am to give Lucas his morning meds. I went back to bed but couldn’t fall asleep. I just laid there, looking out my window at the sunrise. It was a beautiful clear morning. The sky was pink, orange, and blue. What a difference from yesterday’s thick fog and clouds. I laidContinue reading “Today was a Good Day”
