Long Day

I spent so much time on var­i­ous bus­es today (or wait­ing for them) that I read half of Fifty Shades Dark­er and all of Fifty Shades Freed, then start­ed the first book of the Iron Druid Chron­i­cles by Kevin Hearne, Hound­ed. I can’t say how grate­ful I am to have my Nook on days like […]

Fibrant Living: Being an active part of your own health care team, part I

I start­ed a new series at Fibrant Liv­ing today about being an active part of your own health care team. It’s impor­tant for any­one, but vital for those of us with com­plex or chron­ic con­di­tions.

I got to go to the library again today, thanks to Steven! We also had a great lunch at Johnny’s […]

Fibrant Living: Fight Brain Fog!

Over at Fibrant Liv­ing, I’m talk­ing about ways to fight brain fog. That’s a prob­lem for peo­ple with chron­ic pain, depres­sion, and oth­er dis­or­ders, and I’d love to hear about how some of you deal with it.

I’m in a good mood. It’s a love­ly day, I’m learn­ing things, and I’ve got things to look […]

Fibrant Living: Canaries Are Us

I missed men­tion­ing an FL post yes­ter­day! It’s one that has been in the works for a while, Canaries Are Us.

Today’s Post is at Fibrant Living

Get­ting Bet­ter is today’s post. I’m going to be alter­nat­ing between post­ing here and post­ing on my oth­er blogs from now on, but I’ll always at least post a notice here.

Jumpiness and Nerves

Back to the NaBloPo­Mo prompts: What do you do to cope when you’re ner­vous?

I have a whole mess of diag­noses, includ­ing post-trau­­mat­ic stress dis­or­der and social anx­i­ety dis­or­der, so I feel jumpy and ner­vous fair­ly often. I’m on med­ica­tion that helps, and I have Ati­van that I can take if I must for pan­ic […]

Gratitude

Today I’m grate­ful for MARTA, which allows me to get around with­out hav­ing to own a car.

I’m also grate­ful for my won­der­ful pain spe­cial­ist and incred­i­ble ther­a­pist.

Gratitude

Today I’m grate­ful for hav­ing access to exer­cise equip­ment, and being healthy enough to use it.

Book Recommendation: The Mindful Way Through Depression

I’ve been respond­ing to writ­ing prompts instead of writ­ing per­son­al posts because I haven’t had a lot to say pub­licly. I feel a need to stop now, though, and strong­ly rec­om­mend a book that I’ve been read­ing. The Mind­ful Way through Depres­sion: Free­ing Your­self from Chron­ic Unhap­pi­ness takes a very dif­fer­ent approach to recov­ery […]

Accessibility

When some­one asks, “Is (X place) acces­si­ble?” the answer is “no” if there are any stairs involved in get­ting there. It doesn’t mat­ter if every­thing inside X is on one lev­el but there are three “lit­tle” steps at the front door, or “just one flight of stairs out front.” Those “lit­tle” steps aren’t so lit­tle […]
