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…

Coping with POTS

Coping with POTS

I was recently provided with a very well-written article about POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) by a fellow POTSie who sees the same specialist I do. The article was written by the specialist, his nurse, and some of his patients who are in the healthcare field. Please feel free to share the article with friends and family members! ? While I enjoyed all aspects of the article, the part that surprised me the most, mainly due to the fact that…

…That Surpasses Understanding

…That Surpasses Understanding

For the past week or so, something has been happening to me that I can’t explain. My sleep has been a bit off-kilter, although this isn’t unusual. Since I don’t work anymore, my circadian rhythm somewhat resembles this: Anyway, on some days, I’ve found myself awake very early, between 4 and 5 am, unable to sleep anymore. Ok, whatever. Not a big deal. But once the sun comes up, it starts. A near-skin-tingling anxiety that has me pacing, sitting on…

Nocturnal Musings #23: Out of Hell

Nocturnal Musings #23: Out of Hell

I have to go there today. That place. That hospital of which I am deeply afraid. For a follow-up visit with my endocrinologist to check my prolactin to make sure my tumor is still in check, even though my MRI from two months ago (7 months post-op) was clear. I can already smell the smells. Starbucks, of all things. Alcohol wipes. Plastic tubing. Fluid bags from patients going for walks. I can smell a TPN fifty yards away. Occupational hazard. I can…

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…

She Told Me I Was Beautiful

She Told Me I Was Beautiful

And now she’s dead. Back up. This post contains discussions of untimely death and suicide. Please stay safe and steer clear if these subjects may be triggering for you. One of the interesting things about having chronic illness(es) is how your friendships change. In many unfortunate cases, people who were once your friends fade into the background. Sometimes it’s because they’re uncomfortable being around someone who is ill. Or maybe they don’t like the new version of this person they…

Share Your World: April 24, 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! Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink? This is an interesting question, given the fact that I have POTS, which means I take in about 4-5 liters of fluid a day just to be able to stand up. Most of that is Gatorade, with a little bit being…

A Good Thing

A Good Thing

That place still traumatizes me. Wait, back up. I should start at the beginning. Yesterday it was finally time for my 7-month MRI following my brain tumor removal last September (and my 7th lifetime MRI at that!) My mom came down a few days ago to spend some time with me while my husband was out of town, and to drive me to my appointments. I was already stressed out about the day because of the timing. My MRI was…
