Last week I had a migraine. My migraines have always been the kind that warns me, and I can take action to reduce them, but I can never stop them. I've had them all my life. None of the medications worked for very long; we have tried every single one thoroughly. Currently, I am waiting … Continue reading Sometimes medicine has no answers
It’s Been Three Years…
Where have I been sincee 2020? A life update.
Testing… Testing… Hello? Is this on?
Hello! Um... Yeah. Long time no see? Type? Hi. I've been away. December sucked. I was in the hospital for almost all of it, and I got out on Christmas Eve. Since then I have been recovering physically and mentally as well as throwing what energy I can into my little eBay shop! However, I … Continue reading Testing… Testing… Hello? Is this on?
Blogmas 2018 – Day 1
I've been seeing lots of folks on YouTube doing "vlogmas" so I thought I would try my version. So here it is Blogmas. So, on the 1st of December. Sleepy.

The Influenza Injection – A Rant
Not in the mood today for anything at all. Everything is getting under my skin. But nothing more than the yearly rants by people preaching the dangers of vaccinations. Here is my reply: 1.

Oh Dear… I am Sorry 🖤
I have just realised my last post was in July. I have no real reason - I just haven’t. A little update. My jaw is much better - talking and eating isn’t anywhere near as difficult or painful as it was pre-op. I’m still going to physio to amp up my strength for my spinal … Continue reading Oh Dear… I am Sorry 🖤
My (2.5) Week on Instagram
The last 2 and half weeks have been a little crazy. Follow me on Instagram <- clicky. Photo 1: Ah - these. Yeah. This is the paper pants they make you wear during surgery.

World Health Day – Depression
