10 Days Later

My last blog post was around 10 days ago. What a slacker I feel like lately. To be fair, I have been busier than usual and my body is still adjusting to running around all the time. I have been pushing myself nonstop it seems.  I do too much and I inevitably regret it for…

Two-Step TB Test – WK 2

Since last blog post, this week has been hectic, so again, I have to apologize for the delay. I can’t seem to stay on schedule here as of late, but hopefully, I can get back on track. School has been kicking my ass lately, so I never look forward to Mondays. Less than three classes…

Two-Step TB Test – WK 1

As well as another late blog post week, this week is a short week. If you notice, last week’s blog, Better Late Than Never, was posted on Tuesday rather than last Sunday. Wednesday began this short week filled with doctors appointments, thrift stores, family, and of course, writing and coffee. Wednesday and Friday I’ll call…

Better Late Than Never

I know. I am the absolute worst. I am now 2 days late posting, having missed my Sunday blog post day, and I hate doing that.  I like to keep a schedule but I have to just post when I can, I suppose, but I still aim for Sunday blog days. I’m sorry. After last…

Green With Envy

Well, where should I start for this busy week? I suppose I should apologize for another late post. Like last week, Saturday blogs then into Sundays posting, and my schedule all out of sorts. Now that my IBD News Today column posts on Fridays, I’m struggling to pick my personal column day. I wanted to…

1 Year Anniversary of Crohn’s Diagnosis Day

A year ago today I was given a gift, a curse, a problem but no cure. I was given a life long battle that I would have to fight against every day. After 2 years of struggling against my own body, I was finally given a diagnosis of Crohn’s disease and my life would continue…

Up All Night, Sleep All Day

I thank all who continue to read my ramblings every week and I apologize for the delays. Saturday blog days turn into late blog nights, but eventually, I get them done and posted. I lollygag and I lose my train of thought.  I like to just go with whatever is in my head, remembering things here…

Remicade Infusion Day #4

After Saturday’s post, Another MRI for Mary, my weekend went as per usual, filled with marinating on the couch, finishing homework, filling my pill case, and, writing for my blogs – yes, plural.  I can’t believe it.  It is still quite nice to know that I am out there sharing on multiple outlets and bringing…

50 Months of Infertility

I know that today isn’t blog day, but my heart is a little heavy this morning. My body likes to play games with me.  My body likes to play cruel tricks on my mind. Every month, without fail, I get my hopes up and I think that Baby Horsley could be in the making. Just…

Another MRI for Mary

Saturday blog days. This is still so new and odd to me. I find myself stressing for Fridays, still, and I worry about scheduling appointments or making plans. I keep having to remind myself that I have another whole day and that I can take my time on Saturday to write, have coffee, and, enjoy…

MRIs and Valentine’s

Hello to all, I hope you had a great week. I know this post comes late, but since my IBD News Today column goes live on Fridays, I will be posting on Saturdays from here on out. After last Friday’s blog posts went live, both Early Signs and Symptoms of My Crohn’s Disease and Eggshell…

Eggshell Days

Friday night after my last blog post, It Could Be Worse, Philip and I went out to dinner for ‘date night’ at a restaurant nearby.  The restaurant itself was nice, but I was slightly let down because the food was highly overrated. While they boasted their fried chicken, they had overcooked ours, and it came…
