Taking Charge
Tuesday, October 25, 2016      5 comments

I haven't been to work since 9/6. That is the day that a mysterious pain developed in my abdomen, along with nausea and vomiting. They did all kinds of tests over the month of September, from CT Scans to colonoscopies and endoscopies. I'm pretty... Read more
A Season of Change
Saturday, October 22, 2016      8 comments

On September 22, out of pure frustration and defeat, I went to the local stress center at a catholic hospital. I then went through intake, where I poured my heart out to the social worker busily taking notes of everything I said. I was then admi... Read more
Will it ever end?

I've been a medical anomaly since May. I am in so much pain right now it isn't funny. And it is interesting the number of "armchair" doctor's who pop up on social media when you do start to say something is wrong. On August 8th, I started h... Read more

I've had a rough year physically, mentally, and emotionally. I was riding high on the wave until mid-April of this year. Yeah, I gained a few pounds, but I was happy and in love. Fast forward to September, and now I'm just fat and sassy. Time to... Read more
Just Breath!

Well, I survived last night. I would love to know what the facial expression was on my face when Kenny came up and give me a big hug last night. After he walked away from our table, my friends told me to breath. Apparently I had stopped breathin... Read more

Well, a quick update and then I'm going back to bed (It is 2:19am here right now - UGH!). I still have a job, but mostly because the boss isn't back from Europe, yet. He's expected on Monday morning, but we'll see. I'm pretty sure that when he c... Read more

And They Keep Coming

Wow, if it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. It's gotten so bad that my mom is planning on putting horseshoes over my doors of my house! And I'm not stopping her. On a good note, I started back to work this week. On a bad note... Read more
Why am I an embarrassment to myself
Monday, June 27, 2016      15 comments

I hate to admit that I'm struggling on all fronts this morning. I feel like a blob. I am so ashamed of myself for gaining back all of the 50+ pounds I lost last year. I'm even embarrassed to even show my face at my 30th high school reunion in Au... Read more
What a Mess

Those Critics
Tuesday, June 21, 2016      8 comments

How do you handle someone who is very critical of your weight? My grandpa used to nag me continuously about the fact I needed to lose weight, even when I was a firm, fit, toned 145 lb young woman who just had a small "pooch" for a belly. I... Read more

On Tuesday, June 6, I went into the hospital for a routine hysterectomy. Everything went well, although, it was almost 1am before my stomach settled down and I was able to take oral pain meds, eat, and rest. The first few days at home were restf... Read more
