Bachelorette Recaps / Uncategorized

Well, I took to Facebook to see who might be interested if I took the time to recap the bachelorette with my sarcastic thoughts.  More people said they were interested than not so I suppose I’ll take a crack at it this season. Now listen: if you don’t like the Bachelor/Bachelorette shows and don’t watch them, feel free to just not read these here recaps, ok? We start off the episode by taking about a […]

Smile Makers / Tuesday Things

It’s Tuesday.  You know what that means.  I’ve gathered up some news, some weird, some scary, and some fun to dazzle you with today.  There will be talk of sushi, sharks, M&M’s, and a pretty dang mysterious realty listing.  I know I’ve got your attention now. Sushi News If you are a sushi lover, maybe you’ve already seen this news floating around on the internet.  Similar to the worms that might be floating in your intestines […]

Chronic-Girl Crafts / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This

Welcome friends.  I told you I had been working on a project.  For the last couple of weeks I’ve been busy making décor for my new coffee bar.  This area had previously been a place where random papers and garbage and tools and mail and everything else collected.  Now it is a beautiful coffee bar, not to mention I have more counter space too! Ok, onto the pictures. First I did a fun coffee painting that would […]

Deep Thoughts About POTS / Uncategorized

Ah, today.  Let me walk you through my day and show how all of these seemingly tiny moments can add up to cause a problem. First up.  I had a doctor’s appointment at 2:30.  One of those ‘your appointment is at 2:30, but be here at 2:15 to check in because most people are late even though you have never been late’ kind of appointments. I showed up at 2:11.  My official appointment time was […]

I took a few months off from writing my Tuesday Things blogs, but I’ve been having some requests for them again.  I write mostly for you, but a little bit for me too.  Either way, here are some fantastic Tuesday Things for today. How to Pick the Perfect Nude Lipstick Color I’m not making this up.  Apparently it was mentioned recently on the TV show The Doctors that the perfect color of nude lipstick for […]

I did too many things for too many days in a row.  I’m now in the middle of several days with nothing planned and only rest.  Sometimes I forget that all little activities add up.  Going to my moms to hang out for a couple hours is the same as a workout to others.  Even just getting ready and meeting someone in a parking lot to buy or sell something is too much if I […]

The Spring Standoff is Over

Funny Farm Stuff

You might remember when I mentioned that there was a bit of a standoff going on in my life.  You see, I told myself that I couldn’t get my hair done until I made and went to a dentist appointment.  I’m just not a fan of the dentist and I was pretty sure I was going to be told that I need my wisdom teeth out, which sounds like a total POTS nightmare. Well, my […]

If you watched my latest live video on Chronic Illness on the Mighty’s Facebook page, then you might have heard me mention sex coffee.  Basically this is just a delicious drink that supports and enhances sex drive. First off, I didn’t make this recipe, I found it on yourtango.com The ingredients each have a component to increase sexual desire and libido.  The secret ingredient is an adaptogenic herb, Maca, which is an Aztec root known […]

Big Medical Words / Deep Thoughts About POTS / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Uncategorized

A couple days ago I had two appointments.  Not my favorite, but at least I only had to get all ready and leave the house once. First up, falcon doctor (also known as nutraceutical and genetic doctor).  Sad news, he is currently falcon-less.  I asked where Mr. Fritz was and he said, “He’s gone.  He took off for the ladies.  Bros before hoes man.  He totally broke bro-code.”  That’s a direct quote, obviously.  He makes me […]
