That was close

Originally posted 2014-10-23 15:51:42. This morning my husband went to get his motorcycle riding gloves to prepare to leave for work. I hear him ask me to come here. I get up and see what he needs. He asks me, “Is that a black widow spider?” I state first off that I thought it was. Then I proceed to get my phone to take a picture and ask a few people if what they thought…

Originally posted 2014-09-23 16:35:20.   The military community has lost several veterans recently. My heart goes out to the families involved. The reality of PTSD and its effects on our military is ever more present in our everyday lives. My husband even changed after coming home from deployment. He won’t admit to it at all.

Without someone else understanding what exactly we are diagnosed with and what each one entails, they cannot fully understand the concept of living like we do. He…

Seizures and what you did or did not know

Originally posted 2014-04-15 22:05:01. My son had his first seizure at two weeks old. The foster parent called it ”tremors”. He was diagnosed within his first two years after extensive testing. They could not figure out what all was wrong. Between him getting so sick so often and the seizures we frequented Duke Hospital in Durham NC. He had epileptic seizures but because part of his brain didn’t develop they could not say it was epilepsy. Today…
