A Kinder Way

I believe that you need therapy. It’s nothing personal because I believe that everyone needs therapy in their life. I’ve never met a person that couldn’t benefit from a little one on one time with someone trained to help you work through your stuff. Because we ALL have stuff.

I’ve been in therapy several times in my life.  The only reason I’ve ever stopped therapy was because of the ridiculous price tag that it comes with.

Several months ago I was watching one of my favorite YouTubers and she mentioned that she had started a new form of therapy that was affordable and that you could do from anywhere.

Huh?  Tell me more oh lovely YouTuber!

This type of therapy doesn’t include travel or couches (Unless it’s yours)…or even getting dressed for that matter.  It’s online therapy!

Now before you click out…WAIT! Hold on! Just give me a little more time to…

Keep Yourself Full

Pearls Before Swine

Hey, guys! How have you been? I missed you so much and many thanks to those of you who have reached out to me during my time away to make sure I was OK. I appreciate you.

I’ve been wonderful and though I’ve only been gone a few weeks, that time is so much longer in blog days :-).

And I am scheduled for more traveling this weekend.

While I managed to stay away from Facebook, Twitter, this blog and my email until this past Saturday, I broke my Insta-silence when, while walking down the streets of Chicago with my sister, someone recognized me. At first, I was going to just walk away but I noticed the woman was trying to pronounce my name. I finished it for her.

“e-see-lee-yah.”
“I have your book!” said the woman.
“Really? Wow.”
“I follow you on Facebook.”
“Really?”

And so we chatted it…

Fearless Friday

Fearless

I haven’t felt fearless this week.  I feel like I have gone back to where I was before I took the Ampyra and maybe even worse. Or maybe it just seems that way.  On Monday, I told you about the struggle to find financial assistance for the Ampyra I started taking a little over a year ago that was improving a lot of my MS Symptoms.  I also told you about a bad fall I had that day. 

On Wednesday I told you that I was still unable to find financial assistance. 

My symptoms have regressed in the following ways:

  • my right foot is dragging more
  • it is more difficult to do my ankle and foot exercises
  • my right hand is less able to do the occupational therapy exercises I do with therapy putty
  • my R hand can hardly hold anything and
  • my fatigue has increased probably due to the…

Let Me Ask You A Question – 9/17/17

gce5rz8mi

Let me ask you a question:

In your opinion, is it ever okay to have a child in a bar around adults drinking alcohol?  

Making a Comic- Shattered Mirror pg. 2 preview 

Talking to myselves

Just a little teaser, excuse the photo quality!
Two down, three more to go and then the inking fun begins!
After only two pages in the making it’s become clear just how helpful a reference figurine would be… so I ordered one! It comes with props, a stand, and can even cross it’s legs! Keep tuned to see that little guy in the next few days- super excited!

Bringing this story that’s been so near and dear to my heart for so long now has been an adventure! Such a thrilling yet terrifying thing to follow your dreams. Looking forward to what lies ahead!

Thank you for reading!

Procrastination as an art form

mistybooks

So – after a period of unproductive procrastination which has compromised of many hours on social media, many hours contemplative navel gazing and an inordinate amount of just plain faffing about I decided to write again.
Let’s face it, for an author procrastination is not so much a hinderance – it’s more of an art form really isn’t it?
Now I should perhaps say that I am waiting for the third ‘Misty’ book to be published, so there could have been a pinch of resting on my laurels thrown into that little mix just for good measure.
So, with my typing finger in hand – in truth it was always there, I was just using it to pick my nose – I set about editing my sci-fi/ fantasy novel.
I never liked the ending, I must confess, so after ten long years of deliberation I decided to change it.
Well…

The last night…

Cyranny's cove

Dear,

It always ends up happening. No matter how hard I try to stretch time, and how I fill my days with joyous moments, I always get to face that terrible night when the sun has set for the last time on Copenhagen, and I know the next time I’ll see that happening, it will be somewhere where it isn’t half as exciting.

I am sitting by the window, watching the young and young at heart biking by, on their way to some fun evening of eating, drinking, and sharing good times with friends… I can tell by their slighty fancier way of dressing. They are carefree, and don’t have to worry about leaving.

I packed and repacked my bags to be ready tomorrow morning. I enjoyed a fancy meal and walked a bit through the neighbourhood… I recalled all the good memories I accumulated, once more, to sort and…

Positive? Not Always…

Tripping Through Treacle

I try and stay positive, I really do. When I shared that I’d recently been confirmed as having secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) on my blog and on Instagram, everybody was absolutely brilliant, giving me so much support and praising me for working hard to keep going, despite the dark diagnosis. And I am generally positive. As regular readers will know, I do try to keep as healthy as I can be through diet, exercise, and meditation and I truly think that doing that helps to keep my mood stable to some degree. However, as positive as I can be, I can also be downright miserable and grumpy and sad and scared (just ask my husband). It’s not something I like to share too much on social media; it makes me feel so much better when I share uplifting content rather than depressing content. But that’s not the true face…
