Alcoholics

Why do alcoholics try to gaslight those around them? Why can’t they admit they have an issue? Why do they have to have a near death experience before they see anything remotely close to seeing they have a problem? When those who love them are seeing all they are doing and they could give 2 shits. They just care about that fucking bottle! WHY?!!!!!!! Someone please! I need to understand. I have watched my biological…

Stitches, flat tires and birthday cake

Originally posted 2015-08-27 02:24:52. Have you ever been in one of those periods where you really just want to disconnect from the world around you and just immerse yourself in your own little bubble? Yeah, well that is kind of where I have been this past several, several weeks. Dealing with my husband and his “service connected issues” to Dusty and well all that comes with him, trying to get his seizures controlled enough to…

Where’s Ironman When You Need Them?

Got a call yesterday telling me my iron/ferritin drop even lower from last checkup. But problem is insurance doesn’t want to pay for it until it’s 5 points lower 🤦‍♀️ I told the nurse that I have my next surgery scheduled already. It’s called ankle arthroplasty with Achilles tendon lengthening. I’m really not sure how “big” of a surgery this is but I do know he said the surgery would take 2 hours. It’s going…

Originally posted 2018-10-13 11:44:43. Need a laugh today? To make up for a bad day or week. Can you watch this without laughing? You know those videos that are just magic because you can’t helped but laugh? It’s funny. We had FEMA come and do their little ”interview” or whatever they call it for your application for disaster assistance. The one guy asked me how I am still able to smile. I don’t know… Of…

What the… knee?

Originally posted 2019-08-30 07:35:48. Ughh… what’s the deal with knees in this house?!  Chewy’s other leg/knee had something shift yesterday. I think it’s possibly the metal pin in there because it is common for the pins to dislodge. His other leg/knee did the same thing just pushed way out,almost pushing through the skin. Since it’s not pushing through the skin and he is still walking semi-normal we have an appointment Tuesday. Let’s hope it stays…

There’s always a good side

Originally posted 2015-08-06 02:42:06. No matter what things myself or my family have gone through I have managed to look at things from a different perspective. Now I won’t sit here and say there was something good about getting beat or raped but I will say it has taught me to love myself more than I did, it’s just taken a while to learn from it all. The traumatic experiences we may go through harden…

Study: Memories of music cannot be lost to Alzheimer’s and dementia

Originally posted 2020-12-14 08:30:28. The part of your brain responsible for ASMR catalogs music, and appears to be a stronghold against Alzheimer’s and dementia. Some music inspires you to move your feet, some inspires you to get out there and change the world. In any case, and to move hurriedly on to the point of this article, it’s fair to say that music moves people in special ways.  If you’re especially into a piece of…
