Before You Can Really Get Help, Learn About Yourself

Exactly ten years ago today, I got a call from my doctor to confirm that my test results were positive for sarcoidosis. The day before, I came out of the hospital after a three day stay for an open lung biopsy, the test to determine if sarcoidosis was indeed active in my lungs. To date,…

The Sunday Revisit of “My Reply, To A Reply, On My Nurse Rant”

I posted this back in December 16, 2011, and it became a heated discussion with a nurse, so I thought I would revisit it here today, along with the lengthy comments, which were more interesting than the post itself! My Reply, To A Reply, On My Nurse Rant I recently posted a blog entry “Here…

Snapshots Of My Life: Making Friends In Ikea

Yesterday as I sat in the returns section of Ikea, waiting for my number to be called, a heavily “processed” woman, along with her “DUFF”, sat on the bench opposite to me. The only way I can describe the woman is that if goldfish made pornography, she would be the female lead. As I sat…

How Dare You?! I’m Not Fat. I am Stuffed!

FaceBook just changed their “Feeling Fat” emoji title to “Feeleing Stuffed” after protests from users who said that it promoted online body shaming.

Just How/Do Would You Respond To This?

I get all types of emails regarding my blog, but yesterday I received the most bizarre one yet. I won’t bother to go into who wrote it or put all of the totally insane content of the email, but this one part I found really, really odd.

Don’t Stress To Impress

As I watch people flying crazily through the streets with despair in their eyes, I realize that they all have forgotten the reason for the season. What began as an ancient pagan festival where people put gifts for nature under a tree in the forest was turned into cutting down the tree, dragging it indoors…

Is It Ever Possible To Blog Without Ego?

I have trying to live my life without ego as much as I can, and have been readung a bit about it here and there. I recently read where one person claims that he lives an ego free life and I thought to myself, Isn’t that your ego talking?
