School has been requiring lots of attention. Life has been requiring lots of attention. And I have been feeling pretty awful. I’ve been getting daily headaches. Daily bad headaches. I’m really not sure why. Luckily, some of them are going away very quickly (like, within the hour). But some are still present for HOURS, even…… Continue reading The Funk Slump
Mom is leaving to head back to CA tomorrow… actually, today… in, like, 5 1/2 hours. And I’m not sleeping. Oops. I told her I’d make her some maps. So what do I do? Decide I can’t stand the new way that Google prints maps anymore, so I decide to make my own. Now, they…… Continue reading Short Life Update… because, Insomnia
Dan and I took Mom up to Mount Evans a little while ago, hoping to see fall color. We actually went on a LONG drive, not just up the mountain, but it was a lot of fun! 🙂 And Dan and I were quite impressed at Mom's lack of altitude sickness since she's from about… Continue reading Mt Evans – Coming Soon!
I love seeing which countries are reading my blog every day! But, it doesn't actually say how many readers are from each place, just how many views... So, where are you from?!

My fibromyalgia has been mostly under control for at least six months, but it’s kind of hard to tell with all the POTS stuff going on. Some of the symptoms between the two conditions overlap, with chronic fatigue…… Continue reading The Pain of my Fibro Flares
Life has been crazy. I'm still recovering and it's taking a LOT of energy. Though, I'm making major progress on my ear pain and have been able to reduce the pain killers. School. School = homework. Right now: homework = reading multiple chapters. 'Nuff said. Fibromyalgia is a ... unwelcome guest. I was doing so… Continue reading Crazy Life… But, Gotta Love It! Right?
Lately, I have had some very odd symptoms. They aren’t really “new” per say, but they are very irritating. Thursday and Friday I was extremely shaky. I do get shaky quite often, but not like this. This was so bad that I was having a difficult time gripping things. The shaking is the worst of…… Continue reading The Crazy Symptoms of Pain Killers, Exhaustion, and Life
I don't know what I did, other than publish one post in the late afternoon, but you guys went completely bonkers yesterday! Bonkers in a very good way 🙂 I ended up with 42 total views (yes, I realize that several of you probably get several times that many on average, but I'm a newbie).… Continue reading Woh! Record Views!!!
Warning: Post contains some images of the surgery site, which are kind of graphic looking. First off, I’ll start by letting you know that the doctor says everything is fine, no complications 🙂 This is good, and I’ll give more details below. I just didn’t want any of you to be anxious while reading! I’m…… Continue reading Post-Surgery Update, My Version
