2020 is Here Ya’ll & We Are Feeling Fine

Ah 2020, only 4 days in and you have already been so kind to me. Just before the new year began my bowels were doing all sorts of funny things and I thought to myself “Am I regressing? Is this the end?”. But no, it was just me not making healthy life choices, choosing foodsContinue reading “2020 is Here Ya’ll & We Are Feeling Fine”

Well friends, we got the flu

Ah flu season, the time of year no one likes. Especially people with autoimmune disorders. Last year your girl was on top of it and got her flu sit early, managing to overall miss flu season.

Guys this month has been so hectic. Last month of school for kids is always a gong show, meaning long days and energy levels next to nothing.

Things you should do if you are on Prednisone

Ah Prednisone, The pill that most people end up on when you have a chronic illness, the pill that really does work some wonders, but ALWAYS has side effects. This has been the longest I’ve been on prednisone consecutively. Normally I am able to start weaning off of it after 2 weeks, but because ofContinue reading “Things you should do if you are on Prednisone”

Tales from a shower cry session

Two posts in one week, I’m getting a little wild here. But jokes aside, I had a lot of my mind and just feel the need to get it off my chest.
