It’s been awhile…with updates

  Okay...so I've kind of dropped the ball here. But it's summer... that's the excuse I'm going with. I've been busy with a kid and packing. First I've been super busy on the mommy train...just daily entertaining and dealing with Reid as best as I have been able to. My first week off of mommy duty…

The Chronically Ill Parent

  Things have been rough. First of all, it's becoming clear to me that I have no idea how to rest. But I have been reading a ton...so I guess that counts as resting...but I'm sure there has to be more to it. I'm just not sure what else there is. I have to remember…

I hope your antibiotics cocktail doesn't backfire, causing you to conceive and become an unwitting host to super-bacteria

Laughter is the best medicine…or is it?

They say laughter is the best medicine.... but is it? Because recently, I've been in a lot of pain. I thought something was wrong with my right kidney.

At least you have your health… oh wait.. no you don’t… my bad.

A Life without Birth Control: What’s that like?

I have been flying under the radar the past couple weeks. I've just been feeling very uninspired to write. It's not that I have had nothing to say...I have plenty to say. I guess it was more that I was feeling very overwhelmed and emotional. I've noticed that since I stopped taking birth control February…

What doesn’t kill you…

I've mentioned recently that I have been sick with bronchitis, which is difficult by itself. As someone who has asthma and chronic bronchitis, I can say that it sucks. It always makes me wish lungs were not required to live. I say this from experience... I've gotten bronchitis 1-2 times a year for as long…
