Planning Through the Brain Fog

Planning Through the Brain Fog

When you have a medical condition like POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome), which affects the blood flow to your brain, or even conditions like fibromyalgia or Lyme Disease, using your brain to its fullest potential becomes a daunting and often maddeningly frustrating task. As I’ve written in the past, brain fog isn’t the occasional forgetfulness that us sleep-deprived adults have to deal with. And it’s not just “getting old” (I’m 31, for heaven’s sake!) Sometimes I can’t even remember things…

Nocturnal Musings #24: 4 am Pizza

Nocturnal Musings #24: 4 am Pizza

You do what you have to do. Am I right, POTSies? This has been an exceptionally bad week. So much so that I think I’ve spent most of it in bed. I say I think because I’m having a difficult time remembering right now. I’d like to be lying down in bed, but David is so exhausted from working both his regular job and security for the Pro Football Hall of Fame events over the past several days that he’s…

The Book Titles Tag

The Book Titles Tag

What a fun tag! I found this one by Eden at Thrice Read. The idea is to answer the question with the title of a book. I decided to include books I’ve read as well as books on my TBR. 1. Title that’s the story of your life  Life Disrupted 2. Title that describes your perfect weekend  The Hiding Place 3. Title of an adventure you’d like to go on

July Book Haul

July Book Haul

All blurbs are from Goodreads. I picked two books from Book of the Month this month. The Child by Fiona Barton (2017). I’m not much into suspense novels, but this one sounds pretty intriguing. “As an old house is demolished in a gentrifying section of London, a workman discovers a tiny skeleton, buried for years. Journalist Kate Waters cobbles together a piece for her newspaper, but at a loss for answers, she can only pose a question: Who is the Building…

Inside the Mind of a Sick Person

Inside the Mind of a Sick Person

“What do sick people think about? How do you know when you start to be a sick person?” This statement by author Nina Riggs in her memoir, The Bright Hour, was spoken when she woke up one morning shortly after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. When I read it, it gave me pause. I tried to remember if I had ever had a similar thought and couldn’t locate one anywhere in my memory, although that’s not saying much nowadays….

Better late than never! This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this! List some of your favorites types of teas. As your typical northeastern American, the only tea I grew up drinking was nonsweetened, decaffeinated iced tea. To me it tasted like swamp water. Then, when I was in high school, as a frantic remedy to losing my voice…

An Exercise Plan For A POTSie

An Exercise Plan For A POTSie

Last week was another step forward in working towards some sort of improved quality of life. Meaning, I finally had that cardiac rehab (aka exercise) evaluation that I’ve been putting off. Since Dr. Wilson made such a good case for it at my appointment with him, I knew I had to try. I felt a bit crappy in the morning, so I’m glad my dad was here to be able to take me. We weren’t sure how much the test…

How I Choose My Books Tag

How I Choose My Books Tag

It’s hard to find a decent book tag out there that doesn’t make me want to cringe. Which is why I am so happy to have found this one! This is a book tag I picked up from Stephanie at Adventures of a Bibliophile and was originally created by Jenn at Thrice Read. Thanks for the creative ideas, ladies! Find a book on your shelves with a blue cover. What made you pick up that book in the first place? How…

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this! What is your favorite cheese? As my husband’s family hails from Wisconsin, we have an entire drawer of our refrigerator devoted solely to cheese. And when I say drawer, I mean the extra drawer in between the French doors of the fridge and the pullout freezer, so it’s as wide as the…
