Sorry for smiling….

Recently, social media has been buzzing with the warning that the government will soon be using social media tracking to crack down on disability fraud.  I wouldn’t say this is surprising.  People have been spying on the disabled for years.  Growing up, I always heard how people “faked disability” to milk the system.  My family […]

A little bit more…

I may have become cocky and over confident in my ability to tolerate pain.  On an average day, my fingers, elbows, shoulders, hips, lower back, knees, ankles and feet hurt. A lot.   Each day starts out with almost all my joints revolting when I try to stand up in the morning. It eases up […]

You ain’t no copper penny…

Recently, I’ve been going through a lot a stress.  Health, family, pets, household issues, etc….if I wasn’t for bad luck, I’d seriously have none.  On top of it all, I’ve gained a ton of weight from both inactivity due to my broken foot and stress eating.  Then I ended up getting sick.  The kind of […]

A scary good day…

On Monday, I had my annual mammogram.  The following day, I received a message that there was a problem and I needed to come back.  I missed the call and didn’t get the message until late, so I had to wait until this morning to call back.  The way the message sounded, there was an […]

Warning: Over use of CAP LOCKS and a full-on rant inside….

Today was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day (extra points if you know that book!)….well, I may be a little melodramatic, but my day sucked the life out of me.  It started with about 2.5 hours of sleep.  I had to use my crutches a lot yesterday while traveling home from my holiday […]
