Passing Time With A Chronic Illness

Passing Time With A Chronic Illness

When you have a chronic illness (or two, or three) sometimes you find yourself with some down time. Not necessarily because you chose this, but because your body decided for you. This is when it helps to have a hobby (or two, or three) to occupy yourself with. Ah, the flare. Every chronic illness has these days. You may find yourself holed up in the bathroom, flat on your back in bed, or huddled under a blanket on the couch. Flares…

The “What Cats Do” Book Tag

The “What Cats Do” Book Tag

If there are two things you should know about me by now, it’s that I love cats and I love books! And as a blogger, there’s nothing like a good book tag to have fun with when the rest of my brain isn’t working. A tag that combines cats and books is a rare treat! Thank you to Holly at Nut Free Nerd for this tag! Note: clicking on the book titles will take you to Amazon if you are interested…

Happy 10th Birthday, Luna!

Happy 10th Birthday, Luna!

You may have some idea from following my blog that my husband and I are crazy cat people. Indeed, we are owned by seven feline companions, at least five of which are related. To learn their specific and individual stories, check out my kitty posts from last summer here and here. But today is a monumental day in our household, because our oldest kitty, Luna, is celebrating her 10th birthday!

Share Your World: May 15, 2017

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! How many languages do you you speak? Two. Like the vast majority of American kids, I took Spanish in high school, but I don’t remember enough to really speak it. I especially realized this when my husband and I traveled to Honduras in 2012 to meet our sponsor child through Compassion International, Heybi….

Maybe This Time…

Maybe This Time…

There are many days on the calendar that are a challenge for infertile women. Christmas for sure, when all you want is to see the new little stocking hanging with the others for the first time. Halloween is despised, as you throw up your hands at seeing one more infant in a cuddly, warm lion costume. (Last year I sat in the bedroom with earphones on while my husband passed out the candy.) But there is no holiday out there…

Share Your World- March 27, 2017

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! Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)? My first name, no. My middle name is my mother’s first name (same with my brother; his middle name is my father’s first name.) Music or silence while working? It really depends on what…

A Quality-of-Life Update

A Quality-of-Life Update

I guess it’s been awhile since I’ve written a real post. Since it’s Endometriosis Awareness Month, I’ve been trying to reblog my better endo-related posts to raise awareness at a time when it’s most important. You can check out my new endo-specific page here, with information, expanding resources, and links to my blog posts. It’s pretty and has that new-page smell! 😊🎗 I guess, when it comes down to it, I’ve been using this month to hide. From myself, from…

A Day With Dysautonomia

A Day With Dysautonomia

What’s it like to have dysautonomia? Let me take you through a day in my compression socks so you have some idea of what I fight through on a daily basis. Imagine it’s a new day. You wake up and get out of bed. You do your business and then brush your teeth (with an electric toothbrush, by the way.) As you’re doing this, you place two of your fingers over your carotid artery. Your heart rate is rapid, probably in…
