    I Do Not Have To Be A Victim Of Circumstanses

     I got so sick and tired of being sick and tired that I did something!  It has been a long road and it took a lot of perseverance on my part. I have learned that I have a choice. I learned that I can remove myself from undesirable situations/places/things/people and I now have...

    Missing

    Fibromyalgia is a curse. It has taken so much from me. Every day for me is a struggle. Every day is a fight. I go to bed in pain. I get up in pain. I stretch or take meds to get rid of it. I wanted to be a parent all of my life. I finally have a daughter and I am no where near...

    My Life Was Altered Forever Last Year

    I can remember it like it was yesterday, the sounds, the smells, the pain, the fear and in a second my life was altered forever. Last year I was a passenger in a car accident. My side of the car took the brunt of the impact. Yes, I was wearing my seatbelt. All the air bags...

    Over a year ago I became symptomatic with CDA

    type 2 and hemochromatosis. Both are blood disorders, the first one CDA is more serious and very rare. They both essentially store iron in my organs and bone marrow over time. In the last year i've struggled looking for hematology and oncology units that would have a better...

    Work drains me completely.

    I spend twelve hours every day doing work. So I clock sixty hours a week. And weekends are spent preparing things for the coming week. My plants are dying. My hair is dropping out. I feel like **** most days. I wish I can rest, not in bed, but in a long narrow box, and fall into...

    Exhausted

    It seems anytime a site asks me for my mood, I put "exhausted." I am just not happy with my life as it is right now. There are things I want to do, places I want to go, people I want to meet... But for now I am kind of stuck in my job, stuck in this house. My goals...

    Can't Do It Anymore

    I've tried for so long to be there for people, to be the best friend I can be. I'm always busy, I'm always stressed, I'm always frustrated and I'm so done with all of it. When school and work aren't getting in the way, it's my anemia. And if it's not my anemia, it's myself. I can...

    OMG another night with little sleep.

    I have such horrible anxiety that I cannot hardly function any longer. They throw medicine at me, but the side effects are almost as bad as the disorder. They either make you more anxious, make you feel numb, ruin your sex life, make you fat, etc. So I have the choice to be...

    I'm tired of being me.

    ... Always seeming to travel in circles never improving my life to the degree that I want to improve it.... Always being afraid of change.... Lacking confidence and self esteem .... Lacking willpower .... Lacking the ability to stay positive
