Sunday, February 14, 2021      3 comments

I’m going to have to have a talk with my daughter. Probably should’ve had it a while ago. I’m a terrible judge of these things. She JUST realized the... Read more

Had the weirdest dream last night. Everything I wanted done... Read more
Waves

I live in a strange series of waves now. I have symptom waves. I have artistic waves. I have good/bad memory waves. I have fatigue/energy waves. I have sensory waves. ... Read more

Similar to yesterday’s post, part of this one will be focused on helping well-meaning loved ones see the reality I’m asking them to accept. There was... Read more
Broken and Beautiful
Saturday, December 26, 2020      0 comments

For the record, I skipped Christmas Day on purpose. I knew I’d have limited energy and extra hubbub and consciously chose to save those spoons for my family. Knew you all wouldn’t mind. The title of today’s blog is a song from the so... Read more
Is it Christmas-y Yet?
Friday, December 25, 2020      3 comments

It’s Christmas Eve. I’m struggling today. I’ve been trying to make these forward moving and intelligent but that’s going to be an uphill battle today. I’m sorry. That emotional disconnect it a pervasive bugger. Don’t worry. I do have some ... Read more

Small victory for yesterday, I was able, by myself, to bake Chocolate Pixies. I didn’t burn them. I learned some time ago that I’m not even the ... Read more
Clarifying and Taking Stock
Tuesday, December 22, 2020      1 comments

Yesterday I got some good feedback from friends and family and was able to wrap my mom’s head around one more thing regarding the concussion recovery thing. I think she will finally (and without hurt feelings) stop adding, “How’s the head?” or... Read more
Finding Me

It’s time to start blogging again. The plan is to type these up in Word, reread them as many times as necessary to make sure I’ve said what I wanted to say as clearly as possible, THEN post them to my Spark blog, THEN share to FB for friends w... Read more
Day to Day and Moment to Moment
Friday, September 18, 2020      0 comments

Feeling so incredibly done today. Done with feeling useless. Done with feeling capable one moment and unable to do the littlest things the next. There are literally times when I feel like, if my vision were just fixed, I would be back to whe... Read more
Medically On My Own
Friday, September 18, 2020      1 comments

I have given up on medical help at this point. No, not because there is anything wrong with the actual doctors I have seen. The doctor’s office that ordered blood tests in February but had to bump the go-over-labs appointment due to Covid? Th... Read more

Grieving is not Linear
Wednesday, April 01, 2020      0 comments

Spent all morning trying to do something simple my spare child wanted but didn’t directly ask for because she doesn’t want to push me. She just mentioned it would be awesome and left it there. I didn’t promise and have been putting it off. It to... Read more
Milestone and Social Distance Thoughts
Tuesday, March 17, 2020      0 comments

Today has been a year since my most recent concussion. In that time I’ve seen my GP three times, one (inCREdibly unhelpful and condescending) ophthalmologist, and, as of less than 2 weeks ago, one neurologist. It’s a rainy day. My favorite. My... Read more
