A poem for a difficult week.

What’s the feeling you try, but can’t explain The one that tends to block blood flow from your veins? Oxygen suspended, like outer space Go ahead, take a breath before you suffocate. Call up your “friends” for breath and support After all, that’s what they’re there for Right? No, I forget, it’s on their accord … Continue reading A poem for a difficult week.

“You said

Sjögren’s Awareness Month

APRIL! It's come around again! Having a chronic illness isn't just about finding support and a shoulder to lean on when times get tough (if you're able to lean on someone, that is...) It's about finding awareness inside of people that hadn't heard the name, hadn't known someone who, hadn't given a thought. It's about … Continue reading Sjögren’s Awareness Month

I haven't really mentioned anything about my life directly in a little while, but good news is we are taking away the: Bipolar label!

Shatter

  Have you ever wished for something so silently, you couldn't even hear it yourself? And you wait. And you watch. And wait. And watch. Blank. Disappointment overcomes you.
