Fight Song

During the summer of 2016, I found myself at a new level of low. I was struggling to get out of bed every morning, found myself moving slower than usual, and noticed my body breaking down in a way I hadn’t witnessed before. I constantly had a viral infection of some sort, cough/cold, chronic congestion, terrible fevers and giant ulcers…

March 29th, 2018

March 29th, 2018. A day that will forever stay fresh in my mind as my doctor sits in front of me and says, “there isn’t any treatment option. There isn’t any now and there isn’t any on the horizon.” The finality of those words stung with every breath as I nod my head and say, “ok”. I look at my…

Stand by You

What do you do when this life that you have isn’t as smooth as you thought it would be? I’m being totally serious… What do you do? K and I have found ourselves in quite a pickle regarding our on going health issues; K with his heart and clotting issue and me with an endless amount of what the hecks…

I’ve had a continual virus/cold/cough since July and it’s taken a toll on my body. Currently, I have a horrendous flare up of my autoimmune disease and it’s painful as all hell. My sister…

Rise Up

I’ve been working my booty off as of late and finally got out of a three-week rut, where I didn’t do much of anything. Like, my house was a mess, the floors desperately needed to be vacuumed and I couldn’t even fathom washing my hair, because even that was too much work. Depression is real when you’re dying. It sneaks…

Scars to your beautiful.

This weekend started out at UCSF Mount Zion campus, having an echocardiogram to see if I have Pulmonary Hypertension. My tech was amazing and then it was time for my florist/bridesmaid/best friend duty to begin. My best friend, Pickle, got married yesterday and it was the most perfect California day, with sunny blue skies and a faint breeze. She wore…
