I took yesterday off because I had another CT myelogram.
This will be my eighth “spinal entry” in a year and a half. I had a spinal CT, then a blood patch, then two more spinal CTs, then two steroid shots and nerve blocks, and then another. So this, in one way or another, was the seventh time in a short chunk of time that I’ve had to hold very…[Read more]
I am on a positivity kick. I am clinging to whatever I can find (online, in books, on a screen) that can boost my mood [even posted about this yesterday), as times are tough and pain is relatively high. I think the stress and anxiety of a pandemic and the selfishness of other humans has finally hit me in the face… and I’m on a downward spiral.…[Read more]
Yesterday I posted about gender bias in the doctors office (and it actually inspired the column I needed to write for a couple of weeks from now. I was stumped on what to write. Wrote the forum post and thought, “Wow, I really have not researched this enough!”)
I am inspired by a lot of things on this forum, including Jenny’s Monday Shoutouts,…[Read more]
I am stressed out talking to doctors.

And it’s more than just medical. This week, for instance, I have a Facetime-meeting for work which is worrying me (sweats all night long…[Read more]
My dance company made an announcement earlier this week about our sister-company called ComeBacks. ComeBacks is… er, coming back, since the pandemic put everything on pause a year ago and we went into hiatus.
ComeBacks is actually a company for chronically or progressively ill dancers, and although it used be an in-person workshop experience,…[Read more]
So yesterday was a big day because…. I got my first vaccine!
I have been waiting (and posting about the wait) here on the forum for awhile now, but snagged a “last second” type of slot for the Moderna. Navigating the lines and entry as a Deaf person was a little tricky (it always is when it comes to masks), since sometimes people in my small…[Read more]
Today has not been a good day. I wish we had a forum named “I Can’t Survive My Teenager”… Is that possible?
To quickly fill you in without sacrificing her privacy (she gave me permission to share the little bit of this because, “I wasn’t the nicest teen today,”), we had a terrible Teen Day. That’s the type of day where your child completely…[Read more]
If you’re new to the forums here, you might not know that Jenny and I are co-moderators who work together to answer questions, post topics, and hangout with you… which basically means we have the best gig in the world.
But one of the things I love the most about us that others don’t get to see is that we both understand what the other is going…[Read more]
