Day 2

Yesterday ended up being a really annoying day.  After I wrote, right before lunch my youngest’s school called to tell me that he came to the office equipped with a garbage can ready to get sick everywhere.  My oldest had stayed home sick with a stomachache so I wondered if we had a virus inContinue reading “Day 2”

Choices

People in MY family really DON’T understand that I have this problem.  They only know that sometimes I drink and other times I don’t.  Wow, they must think that I really have things under control– how ironic!  

Sober Miracles

Today is the last day of Thanksgiving break and I am bouncing around the house with a gigantic permagrin on my face.  I am just So. Incredibly. Overjoyed.  And yes, I am bouncing! Today was nothing short of a miracle.  I took Jules for about a mile long walk.  I rode over 4 miles onContinue reading “Sober Miracles”

Thanksgiving and My 2nd Holistic Doctor Visit

Yesterday was thanksgiving and I am thankful that the long day is over. The day was really nice with family, but also mentally exhausting. Thankfully, I wasn’t triggered and didn’t desire to drink after I got home (often at the in-laws I RUSH home to drink). I was a good listener tonight. Listened as myContinue reading “Thanksgiving and My 2nd Holistic Doctor Visit”

Good Vibes Only

Life is so good! I’ve had a perma grin since getting these gnarly braces on.  I can’t wait to have a good smile  The purpose of me writing today is to create a desire list.  I saw this idea on facebook from a post from Gabby Bernstein, author of The Universe Has Your Back, oneContinue reading “Good Vibes Only”

Functional Medicine and My Autoimmune Disease

I was diagnosed with both Psoriatic and Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2014.  My problems started in the fall of 2013– I would get random pains in my joints and my left foot was swollen and painful, even though I hadn’t injured it.  I was eventually referred to my current rheumatologist, Parveen Qazi.  Dr. Qazi is inContinue reading “Functional Medicine and My Autoimmune Disease”

Good Energy

I hit what felt like “rock bottom” two nights ago.  I didn’t go to jail– or screw up my marriage– but I was at an all time low– feeling completely helpless, hopeless and just plain sad.  This was Sunday and I had spent the whole day trying not to burst into tears over my foot and the uncertainties that have come with it. 

Turbulent Cycle

November 3, 2018 Sometimes it truly takes everything coming to a head to gain the momentum for real change.  I am at that point. I’ve felt an enormous amount of stress this week from a variety of factors. #1 Offender: My job.  Work is usually low stress for me.  I usually don’t have a tonContinue reading “Turbulent Cycle”

Life and My Stinkin’ Thinkin’

My life is slowly spiraling out of control.  I am at ease with it.  I know that I have to make some big changes, I’m just not ready yet. I quit the AIP diet in the third week.  It was a TOUGH week.  All my meals were tasting so gross, I was choking them down,Continue reading “Life and My Stinkin’ Thinkin’”

Pity Party: Time for a Gratuity List

Honestly, I have been SO crabby the past 2 days I can’t even stand myself! I could not sleep well on Sunday so I was so tired all day Monday. Slept very well last night (Monday) but I’m drinking only decaf tea & was just groggy & not well all day. Also woke up withContinue reading “Pity Party: Time for a Gratuity List”
