2020 hindsight: Part two

2020 hindsight: Part one

Hello! I hope everyone had nice holiday. I sure did. I am looking forward to saying goodbye to 2020. I know that a new year won’t make everything magically OK, but it sure will be nice to kick 2020 to the curb. Personally, I have had a lot of ups and downs, so here itContinue reading “2020 hindsight: Part one”

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 …”

Guess what, guess what, guess what

Hello, hello, hello! I apologize for not writing a few blog posts over the last month or so. I can finally tell you why. I was a bit depressed because I couldn’t find a job, but I was also hitting the job search hard. And I got a job yesterday! I was waiting on theContinue reading “Guess what, guess what, guess what”

Conflicted about cats

Hi! I had a dream about cats last night, so I thought that I would talk about them today. I’ve been inundated with cat posts online and just reminders all the time about cats. And it makes me happy and sad at the same time. Well, I miss my cat Leo very much. I hadContinue reading “Conflicted about cats”

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”

Busy, busy, busy!

Howdy, folks! I’m so busy today that I almost forgot to write a post. So, this will be short, as I haven’t eaten yet, and I need to take my meds! First, my shoulder is doing MUCH better today. It’s just sore from being so inflamed yesterday. But I can lift my arm again, whichContinue reading “Busy, busy, busy!”

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”

Heading to the doctor, and I’m actually excited

Hello! I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow with my primary care physician. And for the first time ever, I am actually looking forward to it. I can’t wait for her to see how much weight I’ve lost. I’m still at 34 pounds, but it’s way less than what I weighed when I saw her inContinue reading “Heading to the doctor, and I’m actually excited”
