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…

Sunday Stealing: The Procrastination Tool

Sunday Stealing: The Procrastination Tool

Greetings, one and all! Time to have some fun! I picked up these lovely questions down South at the McClendon Villa! Originally, however, they were the loot of Sunday Stealing! Check them both out! But as for me… 1. What is your favorite sit-down restaurant? This is a tricky one. I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2012 and in this area of the country, it’s actually quite challenging to find a restaurant that can safely cater to a gluten free…

A Therapeutic Thanksgiving: Coming Home

A Therapeutic Thanksgiving: Coming Home

Last Thursday was Thanksgiving here in America. The real, official start of the holiday season. No one can deny it’s too early for Christmas music any longer! After barely managing to drag myself out of bed Wednesday afternoon, David and I headed to my hometown, a four-hour drive away. Having not been there since May, I was very much looking forward to it. Luckily we had good weather and made good time, despite needing to stop at a rest stop…

Is It Everything You Dreamed It Would Be?

Is It Everything You Dreamed It Would Be?

This is, verbatim, a journal entry of mine from January 17th and 18th, 2016, back when I did a lot of writing prompts. It’s interesting to look back on now. Another writing prompt I saw online was to list out 100 things that you want. At first I thought that sounded kind of selfish, but then I thought about it and realized that things you want don’t have to be material, and wanting things doesn’t indicate a lack of God’s…

The Seasons Will Fly

The Seasons Will Fly

As I sit here spending my time as a football widow, I can’t help but think about all the goings on of the past year. My journey through infertility, through depression, through pelvic pain, through a brain tumor. I tend to do this every now and then when the calendar comes up on a specific time of year, such as a change of seasons. I don’t know why, I just do. I tend to find that my mind is either…

The Guilt of Chronic Illness

The Guilt of Chronic Illness

Guilt is probably one of the most common emotions felt by an individual with chronic illness. At least it is for me, I can’t speak for others. Not because we necessarily feel guilty about ourselves, but often times we are made to feel that way by those we encounter, although it is usually not intentional on the part of those individuals. Why should I feel guilty about something I can’t control?  That’s what part of my mind says. But the…

Chronic Illness 30 Day Challenge: Day 5

Chronic Illness 30 Day Challenge: Day 5

 Day 5: How does being chronically ill make you feel? Defective. Broken. Betrayed. Misunderstood. Those are the primary words I can think of off the top of my head. Being chronically ill isn’t something you choose. It’s something that happens to you. And that’s something that a lot of people don’t understand. It’s become a lifestyle for us, but not one of our own choosing. Our diseases won’t go away. It’s not like catching a cold, dealing with it for a…

The Road to Gluten Free

The Road to Gluten Free

2012 was the year my health started its journey to hell in a hand basket. I’ve talked about all of my other chronic illnesses on the blog so far, but have left this one for last, I think because it’s actually the one I think about the least; I’ve had it the longest, so I’m just very used to having it by now that I don’t think about it much. But here is my diagnosis story.
