Hello friends and followers! I’m heading in an exciting new direction with my blog, which means this website will be temporarily under construction. I’ll be switching to a new website URL, which will be released at a later date. My blog will be hosted there because while I post irregularly, writing about living with chronic… Continue reading Under Construction
As readers of my blog know, I frequently talk about having Chronic Migraine and living with chronic pain. This illness has been a significant part of my adult life. Because of it, I’ve been struggling with my career since I was diagnosed over 5 years ago. I have fought my body, trying to force it… Continue reading I’m Taking a Break and a Nap
Some days I forget that I’m ill and disabled. That may seem ridiculous since I’ve often said I’m in pain every day. And I am! But some days I forget how bad migraines can be. I forget how nauseating it is to move. I forget how much it hurts to sit in a room with… Continue reading I Think I’m Too Ambitious
I recently came across the graphic novel The Encyclopedia of Early Earth by Isabel Greenberg. I really enjoyed the art, and the novel itself was physically larger than others, which allowed me to study the detailed art. The author frequently used maps and layouts of cities, which was delightful to look at. I like the… Continue reading Maddie Recommends: The One Hundred Nights of Hero
Let me start out by saying that I have no idea if any of the members of the band Superchic(k) identify as feminists. They may read my itty bitty little article and be very offended. But I recently realized that their message of a “one girl revolution” planted the seeds of equality in my baby… Continue reading Superchic(k) and Baby Feminism
For the first time in my life I am actively not attending church. This is very odd for me. Going to church has been an important habit my entire life. It has sometimes been the highlight of my week, especially when I was a teen and would get to see my weird youth group friends.… Continue reading I Don’t Go to Church Anymore
Here’s the thing: I like writing. I like online communities (usually) and using them to encourage people. Here’s the other thing: I’m in physical pain every day. And when I am done working for the day, sometimes the pain is so much that I can’t open up the laptop to do these things. While work… Continue reading Living with Pain: A Blog Update
Good news, there is an update on my employment status! I’ve been hired on at the company I just left, but in a different role in a different position. It’s an entry level job, but I enjoy the work and there may be chance for promotion. I had a good experience in this division when… Continue reading I’m Employed, What’s Next?
Hello everyone. I won’t pretend to have a large amount of readers (only two the last time I checked. Thanks bros), but my plan of frequently writing and engaging with other bloggers has gone down the drain. I don’t want to give the whole story quite yet, but I wanted to give the major part.… Continue reading I’m Unemployed, Now What?
Why did I decide to start blogging? I think it is because I am tired of being afraid. I’ve had an idea for a blog for a couple of years. I even set up a blog with a title I liked. But fear and life kept getting in the way. At the time I was… Continue reading Introduction
