Hello again my friends..

Hello to those keeping up with me here on my blog!! I have to start this with an apology for my prolonged absence. I didn’t intend to be gone so long! I’ve just had some serious, personal things going on and I’d like to share a little bit about it all.

For starters, I had to have yet another surgery. Two weeks ago now. I had three wisdom teeth extracted which typically, yes, is a rather normal procedure to undergo. However, this is me we are talking about here! So, I’m considered a “high-risk” patient which is no surprise with everything I’ve gone through this year. Most importantly, the fact that I am a staph carrier. Remember when I developed MRSA out of thin air?  So I’ve really been focusing on keeping myself as healthy as possible above all.

Another huge distraction is that my sweet scruffy man has finally come home!!! He is doing some truly amazing things and I swear, he never stops surprising me with how incredible he is. I honestly just did not know that people as selfless as Nathaniel existed! He’ll hate that I’m ranting about him on my blog but guys, I can’t help it. He’s awesome ❤ And something I’m really jazzed about is that we have invested in a small camper and plan on doing some big(small lol) things!! I’m just so excited to be doing this with him and knowing that he is always on my side. Cheering me on, having my back, and truly showing me how it feels to be loved and supported.



I am still on the Lupus Recovery Diet!! No meat has been a challenge. Nathaniel has decided to do this diet with me! Before his recent trip he was a vegetarian for five years! Unbelievable right? Recently, we had a cookout with our families and I cannot tell a lie – I had a few bites of red meat. And let me just leave it at this; it made me sick.  It’s crazy because I’ve never experienced what that is like, not having meat for so long and then reintroducing it into my diet. Yikes! I plan on sticking to no red meat from now on. I’ve actually had a lot of fun experimenting with new foods and sauces that follow this diet. Essentially, it is just a vegan diet. No eggs. No meat. No dairy. No salt. No sugar. No wheat. The salt and sugar I haven’t cut out completely but definitely reduced them. Just about all I eat is veggies! I guess I’m lucky because I honestly love it.



I also want to add that a few days ago, I tried to make this same blog post and had a big long one ready for ya and just had some typical computer malfunctions and lost the whole thing! So out of frustration, I took a few days to let it go! 🙂 Meanwhile, I’ve also been working on my website if you want to check it out at

There’s another subject I want to touch base on, but I think it deserves its own post. I have recently come off of a prescribed medication and I want to share my experience and struggle with this process.. So stay tuned for my next post! Until then-

 

 

As always. all my love, your favorite spoonie

    Thank you for sharing this! Trying to live a normal life with a Chronic Illness can be challenging and well frustrating! It is truly amazing what we can learn to deal with in life and the strength we all have, that is sometimes hidden. I have been battling Multiple Sclerosis for 16 years now and it has had its ups and downs, but I try to hold on to my positive attitude. I started my blog 2 months ago and it has been a great experience. I have been able to communicate with so many wonderful and amazing people that really understand what I go through. I have set a goal for myself that I will achieve because I am stubborn and determined. I am going to one post every day for at least one month! I hope if you choose to follow my blog, you will enjoy! I look forward to reading more of your posts! Take care!!
