It seems i can tell when my hands are going to 'turn' because they get itchy! They start to get colder and colder before they go beyond warm to HOT! Red, hot and swollen .... then back again. For days ... Eventually they get itchy, like they are now and what follows is the constant … Continue reading Quick note to self
According to my personality profile i don't often 'feel' much, but when i do, i feel deeply. Maybe that's why i find myself going deeper into my head these days. I live in an area that is pretty conservative, especially people my age and older. Our Canadian government is pretty progressive (or at least that's … Continue reading Shameful
I have a little boy that I care for during the week who is autistic. Sometimes things get difficult for him, for us here and at school and mostly for his family. Last week was a particularly hard one. You see, something like autism isn't a cut and dry diagnosis. The spectrum is vast and … Continue reading It’s important to celebrate the good things.
*chuckle* I'm not joking, it's true, she said that straight up right in my kitchen! 😛 I've been having one heck of a time physically lately and it's taken up enough of this blog, for now. I know it's important to be realistic and for me to document what's going on or i honestly lose … Continue reading My MIL says i have a nice butt!

And W is kicking life’s @ss! *grin*

I have good days and bad days, my good days mean i'm just in constant pain, not excruciating. LoL The pain doesn't … Continue reading I caved … Documenting
Trying to get my kids to school is hard enough, teenage boys who would rather do anything but be in class. Not really unusual, is it? Now we are dealing with the fact that when they try to take an english course(s) they are constantly being told they are racist. Yup, just like that! *you … Continue reading How dare you?
I'm writing this here so i can keep track of just what my days really look like. I'm writing this here so that when i do finally find a doctor i can have a real outlook on how my days are going. I am not fine! The ghosts of the past are hard to escape … Continue reading I am *not* fine.
Just some more on the physical issues i'm having, namely with my hands right now although my feet are not immune to the same things but they seem less severe. My hands have been mostly cold lately, although they do still get very hot, red and swollen from time, but for now the cold seems … Continue reading Documenting – Hands
No, not that kind of model i'm afraid! I've been inside all day, i take care to stay warm and frankly it's not even that cold out today. This is a perfectly normal skin tone, isn't it?? LoL My arms and my legs are the same. There are odd bluish purple lines that crawl up … Continue reading Documenting … I’m a model!
