  • Feeling Old and Sick

    Feeling Old and Sick

    Today I’m feeling about as old as Bugs and Daffy look in this picture I colored a while ago. I’m only 35 years old, but it often feels like I am much older physically, thanks to the chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. My husband currently has the flu and when he was telling me how […]

  • Newly Diagnosed with Bipolar 2

    I think the title is pretty self-explanatory as to what the video below is about. Just wanted to share. It is a part of my life, a part of who I am.

  • Could Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Be Caused by Toxic Mold?

    Hello everyone! So today I’m sharing a book review vlog video I made yesterday. For anyone who has Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, or similar chronic illness, or who has a special interest in those subjects, this book might be something you would want to check out!

  • How Accurate are Blood and Skin Allergy Tests?

    How Accurate are Blood and Skin Allergy Tests?

    Well, I’ve officially started allergy shots. Not long ago they conducted a skin allergy test on me to see if that might be contributing to my chronic ear/sinus/respiratory infections. They had already once run an allergy blood test on me (which showed I was only allergic to dogs), but they said the skin allergy test […]

  • Bad Night

    Bad Night

    Tonight was a bad night. The pain, isolation, and despair came crashing down so hard and fast that I crawled off the couch and collapsed onto the carpet, on my side, in a loose fetal position and just wept. I gripped the beige carpet fibers in my fingers and pulled as the tears pooled below […]

  • An open letter to churches and church people about chronic illness and pain

    To churches and church folks everywhere: Unfortunately, I have heard too many stories from fellow chronic pain/chronic illness sufferers about mistreatment at the hands of the church or church people. Some of these people even end up losing their faith or abandoning church altogether because they are hurt so badly by the apathy or mistreatment […]

  • Not exactly life-changing, but here you go…

    I really wanted to write some kind of deep, thoughtful post that would make you all say “wow” and possibly change a few lives…but unfortunately, I have absolutely no inspiration for that type of thing right now, so instead, I’m just going to share a few personal things that are going on and one of my […]

  • Goodbye 2013…a summary of my life this past year

    Hmmm….so 2013, how was it? How about I just sum it up with 5 highlights and 5 lowlights? Highlights: 1. Hubby finished his master’s degree and now he has lots more time to spend with me and do fun stuff 🙂 2. My husband took a break from ministry. That has relieved a lot of […]

  • Bodhi Sitting Time

    Sometimes I sit around and wonder what my purpose in life is, especially right now when I am struggling with so many physical issues that it makes me feel useless, or like I can’t even live a “regular” life. From what I have heard, this seems to be a common feeling among those suffering from chronic […]
