Fatigue has been keeping me down. For those with CFS, you know well that it doesn’t have to be physical exertion that uses you up, mental fatigue is just as bad, maybe even worse. I suspect there will be many more victims after the pandemic. I have stressed about my future for the past six […]

Our true nature……..

By on January 21, 2020

I wonder how often a person demonstrates who they genuinely are? I frequently find myself compensating for certain aspects of myself that others find offensive.

Woe is me……again!

By on July 23, 2018

This has been a difficult week, hence the fact that I didn’t manage to blog this past weekend. I’m trying to recall what it was like to have nothing running through my head and to be able to sleep.

A Week in the Life of………..(or “Vegans are my heroes”)

By on July 15, 2018

My week began with me being so disgusted with myself and my constant grumbling, so I figured a change in the rhythm of recent posts was due. Time with some of my family has definitely lifted my spirits, as has my sweet little boy, Keaton. Had a visit with my oldest and my youngest during […]
