I can’t believe it

Howdy! Well, I have some great news. Back in January, I signed up on a wait list in Virginia for the COVID-19 vaccine. It didn’t seem like I would ever get one. And it’s been very confusing as to how to get one. But last Saturday, I got a call from the local health department.Continue reading “I can’t believe it”

Toasty hands and poofy pillows

Yo! What’s up? I have some silly news to share. I may have mentioned in the past that I won some stuff online a couple months ago. Well, the items are taking a long time to get here, which is fine, since none of it is urgent or anything. A couple more things arrived thisContinue reading “Toasty hands and poofy pillows”

Hodgepodge of randomness

Hello! A random slew of things have happened since the last time I’ve posted. First off, I did get good news. I went to my rheumatologist yesterday. If you recall, last summer I had some bad liver test results. Well, the last two sets of tests turned out fine. So, I’m staying on the sameContinue reading “Hodgepodge of randomness”

2020 hindsight: Part two

Hello! I was going to make this hindsight summary just one post, but man, I really don’t know how to shut up. So many words! Hahahaha, so here’s part two. (Part one here) July: I set up my blog on June 30, but I really didn’t get into it until July. And I loved it.Continue reading “2020 hindsight: Part two”

Milestone

Howdy, folks. I hit a strange milestone today. It has officially been half my life since I was diagnosed in 2001 with my autoimmune condition. On Nov. 16, 2001, I was admitted to the hospital, near death. On Nov. 21, the day before Thanksgiving, I left the hospital. That was 19 years ago, when IContinue reading “Milestone”

Four months later …

Hi! Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I started this blog as a fun project, and it got to the point where forcing myself to post every day wasn’t fun. I was struggling to come up with anything to write about. So, I’m changing things up a bit, and I’ll post when IContinue reading “Four months later …”

Unexpected accomplishment

Howdy! It’s been a pretty fun weekend so far with lots of little things — and one big one — going on. I’m going to start off with the smaller stuff and end with the big one. First, I had a lot of fun last night playing a game online with friends. The game, AmongContinue reading “Unexpected accomplishment”

Stressful side effect

Howdy, folks. I’m writing this post extra early today because I woke up early. I am currently thinking that I should not be writing this yet, as I have not had my coffee. But, I’ve already started, so here goes nothing. So, I have been dealing with hair loss. It all started at the beginningContinue reading “Stressful side effect”

It’s that time of year again

Howdy, folks. It’s that dreaded time of year again. It’s the time when I get my flu shot. First off, I want to say that I 100 percent recommend getting a flu shot. I have been getting a flu shot for 19 years (except one year when I was too poor to afford one, andContinue reading “It’s that time of year again”

What an unusual 24 hours

Howdy, folks. Hope everyone is doing OK today. I am doing well mentally today, but my autoimmune condition decided to rear its ugly head. I’m generally OK, but my shoulder is KILLING me. Every now and then, I get horrible inflammation in my joints. About 90 percent of the time, it’s my shoulder, and mostlyContinue reading “What an unusual 24 hours”
