Sunday Funday… Wins

but I always appreciate my husband’s feedback and observations of my behavior as we adjust meds and levels. I can easily tell when one increases hair loss on the head and growth on the chin (ugh lol), but he notices the behavior...

My Fond Kinship w/ “The Prisoner”- Epilepsy & Wine

I love this wine, the taste and the symbolism. Every time I open the bottle, I stare at that label and think- how ironic. “The Prisoner.” He appears to be in some sort of jacket, bound in chains and shackles that tighten with the twist of the knob around his ankles. So specific, I wonder what the winemaker thought, experienced, endured while harvesting the grapes and waiting to see what they’d yield...

Reality vs. Creativity: Epilepsy Awareness

(This post is part of the Epilepsy Blog Relay™ which runs from November 1 through November 30.) You know what a new med is like? It's like hope, optimism, your savior, terror, your enemy, the one thing that can make you worse. This last time, while I was in the hospital, we ditched one med... Continue Reading →

When Life Isn’t How You Planned: Diastat

Some people think certain things shouldn't be shared or said, and this is probably one of them. We all value our privacy… But Lord knows this blog is not about privacy or painting a picture of health. It's about honesty and real-life, for some of us...

Powder: Long Nights & Clean Slates

Attempting to open the bottle again proved even worse and I made my way back to my bedroom from the kitchen feeling my insides rattle...

When the Superficial Isn’t: Meds & Hair

  Hair- begins to represent less and less of you and more and more of your “invisible illness.” That was literally my first thought as I did my hair for the first time since I hacked off 6 inches… I mean, I’ve had long hair all my life- down to the middle of my back... Continue Reading →

Not Always Black & White: Finding the Grey with Marijuana

I find every time I post something “drug related,” no matter the positive intent, I lose “followers” and support… It’s unfortunate yet I value being honest and open with my thoughts/opinions. So, here’s a little more honesty. :) I’ve only smoked pot twice...

My Kind of Prozac

(fyi- meant to be fun, not angry :) ) I’m on Lamictal. That’s my med of choice and over the years, she’s been pretty good to me- not invincible, but pretty darn effective in preventing the big ones. She and I share a laugh sometimes because I carry her in my purse. Not in a... Continue Reading →
