Short but to the Point

Originally posted 2015-06-16 02:13:02. Wow…seems I went longer before posting again than I thought. Guess what? We kind of went on “vacation” or in simpler terms Kayla had Dusty for several days last week and we had a “break”. Its funny because anytime we have ever had that so-called break we tend to do nothing. I did manage to get to ride on the motorcycle with James. Haven’t been able to just sit behind him…

Past turn Present

Originally posted 2015-05-25 03:18:28. Happy Memorial Day to everyone, even if you aren’t military affiliated or know the true meaning behind it I wish you the best. The past few days for me have been a bit unnerving not just for me but for my family as well. You see on Thursday I had court on Thursday for the ticket from the trailer. We finally were about to get it registered but not without a…

Anybody Seen The Calgon? It was supposed to take me away

Originally posted 2015-04-09 19:08:02. Boy oh boy has this past several weeks has been interesting. Got a headache and still have my music drowning me. The music isn’t seeming to bother my headache so I won’t bother it. You know the song by Lindsay Lohan “Confessions of a Broken Heart” ? Parts of me can feel the hurt in that song towards my biological father. Other times I hear those words in my own head.…

When I die I will likely blow a lot of smoke out of my A**

Originally posted 2015-02-05 23:22:33. You know when someone tells you something and you get the instant “That’s BULLSHIT” reaction? Yeah, we had one on Friday when we attended a local American Legion for Veterans. The Veterans Administration had representatives there from Wednesday to Friday as well as a few more veteran related organizations there to assist anyone who needed it. The main reason we went, well James’s VA disability claim for his service related injuries.…

Secrets and my fear

Originally posted 2015-01-20 13:16:42. https://linktr.ee/AmyMCarter That word can be both negative and positive when it is in our lives. For me it means the struggle of the things I have seen and can’t speak on out of the fear of the parties involved coming after me and my kids. I struggle with it daily. I have this part of me that says I if I say something about the secret I am referring to I…

Children…and all that comes with it.

Originally posted 2015-01-12 21:38:53. Raising children can be one of the harder things parents have to do in their lives. As we all know there isn’t that perfect manual for us to guide us through the challenges that parenting presents. For me, since I have a “normal” one and a special needs one I had to throw out any previous ideas I had on how to do things. Not dramatically different but in a lot…

Its a new year and what will it bring

Originally posted 2015-01-07 00:57:18. Well its now 2015, Yay! What that means, who knows. Will it be a good year for us and so many more, one could hope so. To start off the new year a very close family friend’s husband of 28 years passed away. He had been suffering from ALS. He passed on January 2, 2015. His wife is such an overwhelmingly loving person who we were honored to connect with back…

The plot thickens

Originally posted 2014-12-12 21:36:07. Today I have really been on the edge and just really anxious. Why really not sure why. Been trying to handle all the above with seemingly none of the below. From the VA to the SSA it’s all been a fight to the finish line. Not to mention the insurance premium program that I applied to months upon months ago. Until recently I had seemed to just be talking to the…

Blame me, shame me

Originally posted 2014-11-17 20:07:23. We recently had the 72 hour EEG done on Dusty to investigate further just how many seizures he is having, or at least to get a better understanding of some of his random movements. We have wondered for a while now if some of those random movements Dusty makes were muscle spasms or actual seizure activity. We got an answer to some of that this past week. The results of the…
