So I’m over the hill, it was a hell of a climb!

It has been a while since I have allowed myself to post on social media beyond photos on Instagram and Twitter. I took a month away from Facebook at the advice of Dr. Lucci. I admit it has been a wonderful thing. I am going through many changes in my life and reflecting on empty relationships and toxic friendships. I’ve distanced myself from anyone that does not seem to really …

Endometriosis Awareness

I originally wrote this last year on FB. Endometriosis changes you, emotionally, mentally, and physically. But, you have the ability to take control of your life, it may take you a little longer to complete daily tasks. You may have “endo belly” and look a bit pregnant, but you can still wear that cute outfit and feel good about yourself. You can take a moment to cry, scream, and be …

Do what makes you happy

So, if you paid attention to my earlier post, you would know yesterday and last night I was battling my body for relief of pain. This morning after I posted my blog, I kicked myself out of bed and put on my big girl panties. Endo, IC, RA and osteoarthritis were telling me I couldn’t do my daily routines.

I look at the calendar and I am amazed that a year ago everything changed. I had a complete hysterectomy, due to adenomyosis and endometriosis, and experienced the worst depression I’ve known. So much has happened since then. I keep thinking, has it really been a year. But then with everything that has taken place, two major surgeries, personal life turmoil, and life just kept moving so quickly. Change, it …
