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…

The I Dare You Tag

The I Dare You Tag

I found this fun-looking and thought-provoking tag over at bluchickenninja (you should totally check out her blog) and decided to tag myself! Anything to distract me from the daily grind of my myriad of chronic illnesses. 1. Which book has been on your shelves the longest? Audition by Michael Shurtleff. It was gifted to me by my high school musical theater director when I graduated in 2004. She was devastated that I decided not to go into theater, but gave me…

Share Your World- January 30, 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! What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person? The Grand Canyon. I traveled there with family in 2013. We hiked all the way to the bottom and stayed at Phantom Ranch. Getting out was a bit of a disaster for me, but that’s another story for…

Top Posts of 2016: Endo and Tumors and Aneurysms, oh my!

Top Posts of 2016: Endo and Tumors and Aneurysms, oh my!

As the year is (finally!) drawing to a close, I decided to go back and look at some of my old posts to see how life has changed in the past six months since I started this blog. My goal was, and still is, to raise awareness about certain chronic health issues that affect me, including endometriosis, adenomyosis, infertility, depression, self harm, social anxiety, celiac disease, pituitary tumor, and I guess that pesky little aneurysm. Here are my top ten…

We Wish You A Spoon-ful Christmas!

We Wish You A Spoon-ful Christmas!

Now that Christmas has come and gone, I suppose it’s time to be like everyone else and write about it! I’ll start with Christmas Eve, since that’s when all the action started. The day began quite horribly. I was still wearing the Holter monitor, and it’s a good thing too, because I was extremely symptomatic. I have never had to try so hard in my life to get off the couch. A lot of it was because I hated the…

Fear of the Familiar

Fear of the Familiar

I have a confession to make. I am afraid of the hospital. Not “hospitals” in general, but one specific hospital. This is even more of a conundrum because it’s the same hospital where I work. Fabulous. This is something I’ve been keeping secret for awhile, because I’m honestly ashamed of it, although it hasn’t reared its ugly head and become a problem until recently.

The Beast vs Lake Effect Snow

The Beast vs Lake Effect Snow

Winter has officially arrived! Well, maybe not technically, but as far as the weather is concerned, winter has settled over the Great Lakes. Which makes this snow-lover absolutely ecstatic! Looking outside now, you wouldn’t be able to tell that people were mowing their lawns for the last time this year on Wednesday. But the change from fall to winter in this neck of the woods can be, and often is, that abrupt. So how do we deal with winter here…

Nocturnal Musings #17: Flashbacks

Nocturnal Musings #17: Flashbacks

It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these. Not that I’m having problems with insomnia currently, just that I’m sleeping from roughly 8 am to 4 pm because that’s what my body does when left to its own devices. So indeed, at this hour, I am still awake. I need to get some disturbing memories and emotions out. Don’t worry, they likely won’t be disturbing to anyone but myself. But if you also have flashbacks to troubling medical memories,…
