Itchy. Everything is itchy. The burning itchy kind of itchy. The under the skin kind of itchy. The normal itchy. EVERYTHING itches!!!!! It’s been like this for hours now. Why it just now hit me that I’m in the middle of a flare, I don’t know, but it did. Usually, my flares agree more pain…… Continue reading Atypical Flare Day
Thankfully. I was out of LabCorp just after noon. As soon as I got to my car I chugged my Ensure and took my medications. By the time I got the DMV (I had to get plates for the Ford), my medication was starting to kick in. I didn’t get home until after one. Thankfully,…… Continue reading I Didn’t Pass Out
I have to get routine bloodwork done because I haven't had a normal physical in two years (I didn't realize it had been that long, all those other doc appointments blended together).

Instead of a research paper, we had to find a short article related to psychology and then summarize it in plain English (I think it’s so we can have more practice in reading and understanding scientific articles). I chose an article that is related…… Continue reading Soon I’ll Have Research to Share
Sometimes you just need to know your best friend will be there when you wake up.
I had a math test today, totally nailed it. The studying, however, took a ton of time since I didn’t realize I had it until Monday when I decided to see what I needed to do to get caught up in my math class. My major psych paper is due on Monday by midnight. I…… Continue reading School Monster Eats Time
How do you recover from a month of crazy emotional stress, travel stress, chronic illness, and allergy testing? I just got home from my allergy testing, and this is the first thing I did. Well, technically the second. This has just been the most ridiculous month, and definitely not in a good way. Grama passed…… Continue reading FINALLY a Recovery Cocktail
