I'm never going to be THAT girl. Composed and "PERFECT". I'm a jeans a tee kinda girl - with imperfect skin, scars galore, and improvements to be made. I'm sick all of the time, and REST is number one for me to continue to "human". I've broken countless times, but the important part there is… Continue reading Kintsugi.

Negative words circulate in your head. You can push them back, but it’s a constant fight isn’t it? Let’s try something here... I want to list all of the words that are constantly being pushed to the back of my head... some old, some new, some brought on by myself. Herrrrreee weeeee goooooo: … Continue reading Caged.
When I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, I was relieved to finally have an answer and name to what was causing my body to viciously stab, burn, electrocute, punch, overheat, get random fevers, require a seating in social circumstances, pass out from fatigue even though I just woke up, become randomly nauseous and repulsed by food… Continue reading Medication Shaming
