Imma make this super short. Have you identified your skin "tone" and undertone? The undertone (pink, yellow, etc.) is CRUCIAL - and I actually think it is almost more important than "knowing" what "exact" skin tone you have (that is, what makeup shade "perfectly" matches your skin). Why? Because even if you chose a color … Continue reading MAKEUP 101
I had an interesting feeling come over me today as I was ... strangely enough ... pumping gas into my car (no worries, despite the places your mind might go, the two had absolutely nothing to do with one another). I am SINGLE - the last "long-term" relationship I had was just that - LONG-TERM, … Continue reading Kisses
U watch "a lot" of shows, both from the US and from "abroad." I don't sit here and stare at a screen all day every day (I'd be in a loony bin somewhere if I were doing that!), I usually have something playing on in the background when I am home while I am doing … Continue reading Let’s Start Easy … Makeup Wisdom 101
Hello! I apologize for my extended absence these past few weeks; I had another episode with my eye, I had the flu, I have been at my "second home" (the dentist) more times than I can remember, and I have just been busy overall. I also think I am having some seizures (mild, but still … Continue reading Why Hello! / I’m Back! / Beginner Makeup Tips!
I mention "memory problems" / "memory loss" because I had an amazing post I meant to write today ... but I was driving home from the dentist (my second home) and I didn't have any way of getting it down - even "touching" a cell phone while driving in Bethlehem is illegal! - and now … Continue reading EEEEEEEE … Memory Loss and Possible Seizures….
One of the most difficult obstacles I personally face with chronic illness is dealing with both a "sick" body and a very "healthy" mind. This could be turned the other way with mental illness (also chronic illness!) in which one's mind is at odds with one's body. It's a constant state of turbulence in which … Continue reading The Discrepancy Between Body and Mind
After years of living with chronic illness, depression is inevitable. I don't really feel like talking (or writing, as the case is here), but I seem to have fallen into a pit of the aforementioned depression over the last day or so. I feel like my life sucks and that I have struggled so hard … Continue reading Depression and Chronic Illness
Have you ever had the flu? The feeling of a high fever, the aches and pains, the throbbing head (and eyes), the crazy body aches, the feeling of being unable to get warm, the absolute exhaustion? So many times I have to "justify" feeling like absolute CRAP when I wake up in the morning - … Continue reading What It’s Like to WAKE UP w/Chronic Illness
This is a really good app for anyone who deals with chronic pain. I woke up this morning and started thinking back to all the stuff I’ve bought over the years thinking I was just sleeping wrong , going to bed with a heating pad on high (so glad I didn’t burn myself up on […] … Continue reading I wish I would have been tracking this whole time. — Artslinger19
So I have reached a profound albeit seemingly obvious conclusion. Which makes for a short post. *YAY!* The world is inherently unfair. I have struggled just to be alive since I was 2 months old. I faced over a decade of tragedy and loss that no one on the planet "deserves." I would not wish … Continue reading Thinking about “Neighbors” and Others …
