Feels like a Dear Diary entry

Aria-Bella Rises!

Aria-Bella Rises

I am a Guardian Angel and part of my ‘mission’ is to talk about Angels, yet if you were to look at my posts and so forth – you may be hard pressed to know that about me. Don’t get me wrong, I still, I guess bring that Angelic energy of mine to anything I write and say but it isn’t always the same.

I sometimes look to those that are known as the expert and I kinda non angelically say to myself, Hello, you want an expert (while waving my arms in the air) but how the hell is anyone to know??? Face palming at its finest.

The last couple of days, I really got to thinking why or what is lurking in the background to stop me from jumping into my full potential…

To start really delving into the topic of Angels means that I am doing part…

Screening Mammography – A Little Squeeze Goes A Long Way

Being Lydia!

breastCancerOkay, this subject might be a little uncomfortable for my male readers but it shouldn’t be. It is no different to a prostate exam. Both are a little uncomfortable but very important to keep us all healthy.

Today was my annual appointment. I was supposed to go a few weeks ago but caught a cold and I don’t go to public places when I am sick (especially medical buildings) because I just get worse thanks to my immune system. So, even though I got zero sleep last night I knew I needed to get it over with.

Hubby dropped me off and then went on to pick up our gluten free bread order for the next couple of weeks across the river. I figured I would be in and out and waiting for him, but that was not the case. God had something more in mind for me, as He…

One year ‘Blogiversary’!

Happy Blogiversary to Jen over at Tripping Through Treacle!!

Tripping Through Treacle

I can’t believe it, but a whole year has gone past since I first started blogging.  I initially started writing as I was (and still am!) dealing with a lot of struggles and emotions in regards to my multiple sclerosis.  I am pleased to say that blogging has not only become very cathartic for me, but it has also given me the opportunity to ‘meet’ others who also enjoy writing, some with chronic illness, and to follow fabulous bloggers with stories to tell.  Here’s to the next year!  Please find a link to my very first blog post, below, for anyone interested in having a quick read.

The guys guide to female communication: what she says vs. what she means

This is Life Experiment Blog!

(comments disabled, please visit original page)

lifexperimentblog

In today’s age of gadget driven communication, it’s more important than ever to pay attention to social and physical cues to decipher the message. There are countless books out there which tackle this message, but sometimes its so blatantly obvious that one must chuckle at the inability to take a hint. *Guys, ladies hint… A LOT!

As my significant other has sucked me into the world of youtube, I have witnessed some absolutely cringe-worthy tutorials on what women want. (Usually by young men who have not had the life experience required to even take a guess)

So, I figured we’d have some fun and I would write my own little list of  what she says (does) vs. what she means. I hope you either have a good giggle, or maybe get that codex in your head once and for all 😉

*When you ask what she wants for dinner, what…

Surgery

This is Life Experiment Blog!

lifexperimentblog

Hi all 🙂

Today’s post is a short one, as I’m just coming to my senses after major surgery.  Since I complain on the regular about people blogging after a few drinks, I don’t want to be a super hypocrite by blogging while waayyy heavily medicated.

Just wanted to let you guys know that so far, so good. The operation seems to have gone well and the doctors are keeping a close eye on things. I’ll be in the hospital for at least the next several days, but I will be checking in via cell. Promise!

A cool thing happened today. When I opened my eyes, I saw this beautiful red rose next to my bed.  I asked the nurse where it came from  (I’m not even in my own space yet), and she told me the hospital had roses sent to every female patient that’s temporarily residing here in…

Last night’s anxiety dream.

Meet Lucky Otter’s Haven!

Lucky Otters Haven

relativity

I don’t have that many anxiety dreams anymore, but when I do have them they are doozies and tend to be extremely vivid.

The one I had last night bordered on being a nightmare.    It was nighttime (for some reason, in these dreams it’s always late at night) and I was in a vast subway system (like New York City’s) and had no idea where I was.   I was trying to make it home, and kept taking the wrong sets of stairs and getting lost on the wrong platforms.  I’d go and ask people where the platform I should be on was to get home, but no one seemed to be able to answer me.    I was becoming frustrated and upset, and was on the verge of crying.

Then the strangers I asked for directions began to make fun of me — somehow knowing I was originally…
