My Diagnosis

It’s been a long time..I shouldn’t have left you…without a dope beat to step to. #Jammin Ya’ll know Aaliyah songs are my jam…but this aint what we came here for now is it? Fibrosing Mediastinitis That’s what I’ve been diagnoses with.  I wish I could tell you a whole lot about it but I can’t.  It’s pretty darn rare.  I’m telling you…google that shit…I’ll wait! Ahhh I see you’re back. Welcome Welcome…you aint learn nothing did you.  I already know.  It’s ok.  WebMD ran you in a circle. It’s like you went to Google and Ask Jeeves showed up like “Hey! What can I do ya for?”.  You know there...

What happened in October!?

So, Im going to get back into writing again soon. You would think my name was Lemony Snicket the way things have been going every time I try to stay consistent here. So since the last post some things have happened.  That prayer in the last one must have went up priority mail because it went down in the week or two right after.  LONG POST WARNING! So, this started in September when I revealed my secret. Then, I was still undiagnosed/misdiagnosed. Today, I believe that I am correctly diagnosed.  It’s been a real life episode of “House”.  I won’t know 100% until later in 2015 when I am stable...

Updates on Life and Thank yous

So, I’ve opened up wordpress probably daily over the last week to write a blog and CLEARLY it hasn’t happened.  I’ve been semi-busy and FULLY tired. The new meds I’m on have the LOVELY quality of making you tired while SIMULTANEOUSLY making it difficult for you to fall asleep at night.  Therefore, I been on that coffee iv!  I haven’t had much energy to do anything that even resembled productivity.  If it wasn’t one of my three jobs (I already understand that I’m doing the most), it wasn’t getting done.  I have even been wearing a ponytail all week because LAZY.  It’s cute though!  Hey hair! So updates. I’d like...

I’m not Superwoman

Well, maybe a little bit on some days, I’m superwoman.  Most days, I’m not.  However, do I put on the front that I’m superwoman and able to take on and handle everything thrown at me EVERYDAY, YES!! I’d been thinking about writing this post after a couple of days of feeling defeated.  I’ve been exhausted when I get home.  My breathing has been funny.  I can’t decide if I just need rest, am getting sick, or I’m not reacting well to my new medications.  UGH.  But, since I’ve convinced myself (because the mind is a powerful tool) that I’m superwoman, I’ve been beating myself up.  I haven’t packed a thing since...

Secrets Revealed

I’m typically a pretty private person.  I have my circle of trust and that circle is very small.  There is a tight circle right outside the periphery of that circle but I’m pretty silent beyond that. I know it seems weird for a person who blogs and all the things I’ve done but alas…it just is how it is.  Well, this year, some things have happened and I’ve been fairly silent about them.  I may have referenced them but I haven’t really talked about them. This year has been a banner year for craziness in my life.  First and foremost: I’m sick.  *whew* That took a lot to say.  Those...

I’m on my Carl Thomas – Emotional

I’m just gonna play some Sam Smith in the background of this post so yall can be in your feelings by the end of the post like me. GON’ PRESS PLAY Misery loves company…but don’t stay too long. It seems like every other moment…I’m all up in my feelings.  Like good…bad…ugly.  I’ve moved in there.  I’m late on rent and everything. I’ll so wake up in the morning like “Woo child I feel good” (OK that’s really lies and propaganda because me and the morning don’t see eye to eye.  However…I be making it.  Anyway) I order my life and get out the door and roll on yonder to where...

Goodbye August

As you can see, I wasn’t able to finish my August blogging challenge.  Life happened in major ways in August and it was rarely anything good. I’m going to semi-attempt the challenge again in September.   However, this post is to say goodbye to August 2014.  I am so happy this month is over.  From my mother getting very sick, to me not feeling well most of the month, to me having a procedure, to finding out crazy medical information, to needing car repairs, things breaking, etc etc etc.   I’m just happy I’m alive.  I’m happy I’ve had my support system be in full power.  I have a core...

Progress Pics

So I’ve been thinking about this post for weeks now.  I’ve been going back and forth with how detailed I was going to go with my progress pics.  However, I figured it would be good to document where I’ve come from.  I decided to make a side by side collage which I’ve done before.  This one was different though.  I was in a sports bra and shorts in one.  Granted, I’ve always been comfy with my body but this is the INTERNET.  Should I share such an image.  People do it all the time, but SHE’S not people.   I’ve finally gotten up the nerve (read: decided to ignore the...
