    Bringing Awareness to “Endometriosis”

    A Little Background On How My Story Began; Just graduated from high school, and beginning my start in life. I was so excited to go to college, but not exactly sure what I wanted to do. I really liked accounting, but my dream and what I loved most was to sing. Well… I got into accounting and realized that it most certainly was not for me. That is when, I reached for the stars and decided to audition for the music program at the local community college near me. I picked my songs to sing, practiced until I couldn’t breathe, and my vocal chords were no more…. Got my audition…

  • Chronic Illness

    When you feel like a burden, but you don’t want people to know.

    Are You A Burden; Okay, so I know the title isn’t really all that it is cracked up to be. I had a little trouble finding the best title I could for this. I think when it comes to having any kind of illness, or getting sick you can feel like a burden at any given moment. As for me, I feel like one 24/7. I am not sure if any of you can relate and if you can, I am so sorry for what you may be going through, but know you are not alone. We are never alone in this journey even though it can be the most…

    Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EOE)

    Life with Eosinophilic Esophagitis All my life I have had trouble swallowing my food, not being able to eat certain types of food, and overall just getting sick with food.  I have never had a good relationship with food basically to tell you straight. When I was 12, I was diagnosed with gastroparesis, then in my 20’s I was later diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis. Eating with EOE When I try to eat depending on what it is, most of the time food gets impacted in my esophagus and I feel like I am choking. This can be so embarrassing when I am with other people, or if I am in…

    Top movies to watch while bedridden

     (This post contains affiliate links, please see the disclosure policy for any more information about them) Hey everyone! So I know we have all had those moments whether we have a chronic illness or not… where we have been absolutely just stuck in bed and not able to get out. I can remember last year, I was stuck in bed for about 8-9 months, I would still try to get out, (basically, crawl out of bed), just to stretch my body and my legs and I would do stretches in bed because I was so scared to decondition my body. Anyways while I was stuck in bed, I wrote a…

    An abusive relationship

    Have you ever been in a situation at least one time in your life where you just know things are going to end badly?? Have you ever been scared?? Have you ever had to deal with being a teenager? I am hoping you answered yes to all of these. I feel as if most of these are normal, we are all human and we all have the ability to go through fear. Today I want to write about something that I do not believe in my heart gets spoken about enough. I know the Lord placed this on my heart to try and help you, along with maybe your children,…

  • The Joy of Living

    Don’t let yourself live with REGRET’s

    When I was growing up, I was a skinny little thing, did modeling and thought I had it all. I was selfish, I was rude and I just had a horrible attitude problem that I needed to fix. I was boy crazy and I just thought I was truly all that and a bag of chips. Although the weird thing is, I was insecure and completely jealous of every single girl and person that I met.  I was just a teenager, I didn’t know any better right?? Wrong! I think we all should know better because being selfish and being jealous truly gets us nowhere in life.  I used to…

I just finished my infusion to prepare for the surgery I am having tomorrow, and I wanted to talk to you guys a little bit about it if that is okay? Tomorrow I am having a laparoscopy for endometriosis with a possible endometrial ablation along with a bladder installation for interstitial cystitis also known as IC.  Then at the end of this, I want to bring some humor and some funny stories of things I have done after coming out of surgery and would love…
