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”

A day jam-packed with lots of this and that

Hello, everyone! Well, yesterday was a really weird, good and event-filled day. I am going to try to present everything in order. First, I want to point out that my typical day now is getting up, having coffee, exercising, writing a blog entry, lunch, working (whether it’s at my job or chores), dinner and relaxingContinue reading “A day jam-packed with lots of this and that”

Feeling a bit wiped out

Hello, hello. I’m a bit late today with my blog post. I had a doctor’s appointment with my primary care physician this morning. I had blood taken, so as soon as I got home, I had to eat and take my meds. I was a little light-headed from getting the blood taken. I used toContinue reading “Feeling a bit wiped out”

Facing a terrifying and uncertain path

Howdy, folks. I have now officially streamed twice on Twitch. I hope I can keep it up. I am going to lose my job at the end of the year, and the job market is so competitive right now. I really hope that I can make at least some money at some point on Twitch.Continue reading “Facing a terrifying and uncertain path”

I have no motherly instincts

Howdy, everyone! I really enjoyed yesterday’s blog about car problems, and I was really happy to see that a bunch of folks commented. It makes me glad to know people are reading my blog. And it was kind of comforting to know that I am not alone in my car woes. Cars are pretty muchContinue reading “I have no motherly instincts”
