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… Continue reading Remicade Infusion Day #4

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.

Bad Luck & Bad Timing…

Since my rant on Sunday, I have been further blocked from the Crohn's group on Facebook, to where I can no longer see them, so I have that going for me. (See Open Letter) Monday I began the Topamax medication, and I can already sense a delay in my mind, where I am searching for… Continue reading Bad Luck & Bad Timing…

Pills and Potions – More Decisions

With this week comes more doctors and appointments, more phone calls and more prescriptions, with more major decisions needing to be made. Since last week, I am significantly less nauseated, and I have even managed to keep a few meals down.  My new ailment, though?   My sleep is eluding me again.  I am up at… Continue reading Pills and Potions – More Decisions
