Okay. You guys know I don't use multiple words in my titles, but this is important. There is an awesome workbook you can download for free here. It walks you through all kinds of helpful things and you should definitely check it out if you are struggling like me. ❤️
Flowers in the backyard. I tried taking my friend's dog for a walk on his leash, but that was a disaster. He is a free-range doggo. He pulled so hard on his leash he made himself yack, so we made it half a block. I wasn't going to torture him. That seemed evil. He's much … Continue reading Free-range
I already posted about this today, but I'm fighting feelings of grief. Today was the last official meeting with my case manager, (even though I will see her through this pandemic situation virtually until we can properly "close" in person). It seems silly really that what is now really an arbitrary date is bugging me … Continue reading Grieving.
It was inevitable. I had to have my last "real" appointment with my case manager. Ugh. I am trying to be cool about it. She is going to stay in contact with me through this lockdown and liaise with my other providers as necessary, so I still get to see her, it just won't be … Continue reading End….
Trust yourself. You've survived a lot, and you'll survive whatever is coming. -Robert TewI put this quote in my book a long time ago, but it seems appropriate now.

Fun times. I've been in the hospital since Saturday. I honestly thought, when I went to the emergency room (because my mom said I had to), that I would just get some fluids and maybe some pain meds and get sent home. Nope! I have pancreatitis, (again!!!), so I'm just sitting here with IV fluids … Continue reading Situation…
Be there for others, but never leave yourself behind. -DodinskyI have this quote in my book because I am a perpetual "caregiver." I will do this to the point that I forget to take care of myself emotionally and physically. It's a huge problem. I love this quote.
Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What's important is the action. You don't have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow. -Carrie FisherAnyone who's been on my blog for a hot second knows I have a secret love affair with Carrie Fisher. She's a hero of mine. Anyway, … Continue reading Fisher
You've always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself. -Glinda the good witch I have a book I've been putting together of quotes that mean something to me. This one is one that my case manager has repeatedly sent to me over the years and that I also personally … Continue reading Glinda
I graduate from case management at the end of this month. I'm really proud of myself for getting this far and very grateful for the people, (especially my case manager), who have helped me get to this point. At the same time, it's really scary. I've had my case manager to help guide me through … Continue reading Transitions
