So I have recently encountered a very troubling problem - the content from this site is being plagiarized by others with one of the disease I have and said "person" is using the content as if it were that person's content and that person's story. This has been extraordinarily upsetting to put it mildly.At any … Continue reading Plagiarism

DO YOU GET IT?? COVID-19
YOU CANNOT EXPECT OTHER PEOPLE TO BE RESPONSIBLE; THE ONLY "CONTROL" YOU HAVE OVER YOUR HEALTH IN THIS UNCERTAIN TIME IS BEING RESPONSIBLE YOURSELF.
Contour 101 – “KUWTK” Edition … GOD Help Me!
So this is not the "full" post about contouring (there cannot be just one "full post" anyway!) but I'm STILL watching this stupid "KUWTK" because, yet again, I STILL DO NOT "GET IT" and I'm on the episode where Kim launches her "contour sticks" or whatever it is. And I have to say ... WRONG! … Continue reading Contour 101 – “KUWTK” Edition … GOD Help Me!
Coronavirus – Part One
I'm going to make this short and sweet. I want to talk more about this strain of "coronavirus" and get into the most basic medical information regarding it. However, assuming many of those reading this "blog" are those with chronic illness, I want you to do (for now) 3 things for me - 1. DO … Continue reading Coronavirus – Part One
A Sense of Purpose
Today I have dealt with "bipolar" emotions - although I had my sort of "normal" daily things to do, the total of these things wasn't great, and I felt, as I have been feeling more and more over the last few months, that I have been slipping into something like a very deep depression. HOWEVER, … Continue reading A Sense of Purpose
A Thought “Experiment” for the “Healthy”
If you are one of the lucky "healthy, normal" people out there reading this, I have a favor to ask of you. I guess this would work only if you are over the age of 30 as well, so my apologies to any younger readers - I am quite sure I have plenty of questions … Continue reading A Thought “Experiment” for the “Healthy”
Terrace House Wisdom
I have been "watching" (my version of "watching" is more like half-listening to while doing other things) the Netflix / Japanese "reality show" "Terrace House" and I just came across some wisdom that I suppose I had overlooked while halfheartedly "watching" / listening to the show. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this … Continue reading Terrace House Wisdom
Succinct-ify THAT Sunday!
In my last long post (earlier today!) the basic "idea" I'm driving at and driving MYSELF toward is to try to be "a voice" within the "Chronic Illness Community" that is less showcase-y and less sad. There is already so much sadness and so many bad things we deal with on a daily basis - … Continue reading Succinct-ify THAT Sunday!
Money Money Money … and Panic … ATTACKS!
I have so much to write and I have such a tendency to ramble on and go off on tangents so I am really going to make a concerted effort to discuss ONE topic (perhaps two if they "go together," as the topics "money" and "panic attacks" often do!) at a time here. There is … Continue reading Money Money Money … and Panic … ATTACKS!
Super Succinct Sunday – Spoonies
I literally just woke up about 15 minutes ago (I have not been feeling well at all) but I wanted to write this one ASAP since I know there is often a lot of confusion about what the term "spoonie" means, where it comes from, and why it is used. *Of course I had to … Continue reading Super Succinct Sunday – Spoonies
