Will

Posted November 6, 2008 By LifeIsChange

If you imagine this kitten as an all-black kitten, it looks remarkably like the one I connected with on Monday.  Coworkers got him out from under the building, where he was all alone and crying.  There are several feral cats that live in the woods by where I work.  Nobody could find the mother cat […]

Palpitations, Migraines, and Fatigue . . . Oh My!

Posted December 22, 2008 By LifeIsChange

Because symptoms like depression, fatigue, and migraines are associated with every health issue I deal with, when one or more of those symptoms becomes worse, I tend to look to one of those issues to blame.  Do I also have IBS-like symptoms accompanied by gas and bloating and intestinal pain?  I must have been glutened. […]

Turning Points, Part I: ADD Meds

Posted December 24, 2009 By LifeIsChange

Wow.  Ok.  Where do I start? Since I wrote my last post, when I was only 1733 words into NaNo and being distracted by music, there have been some huge, major turning points in my life, including but not limited to: Getting started on ADD meds My second NaNoWriMo win Decluttering and repairs at home […]

Turning Points, Part II: NaNoWriMo

Posted December 26, 2009 By LifeIsChange

As I said in my last post, in the past two months or so (a little less, actually), there have been some huge, major turning points in my life, including but not limited to: Getting started on ADD meds My second NaNoWriMo win Decluttering and repairs at home . . . And my visit with […]

Leaving On A Jet Plane

Posted February 11, 2010 By LifeIsChange

I’m going to fly, tomorrow night, for the first time since I was a teenager.  I’m a little unsure of just what to expect, but I’m very excited anyway, because I’ll be seeing my SS when I get off the plane at the other end.  ♥ It’s my first visit to her neck of the […]

My Trip, and A Few Pictures

Posted February 19, 2010 By LifeIsChange

I arrived safely home on Monday from my trip, and I had a great time! The flight up: My flight left Friday night, about a half hour later than originally scheduled, because when the plane came in from the previous flight, they had to circle a few times while waiting for their turn to land.  […]

When A Stranger Comes In, Uninvited

Posted March 3, 2010 By LifeIsChange

For, oh, about eight or nine years, I battled a dryer-venting problem at my apartment.  When I moved into the apartment, I brought my old, second-hand dryer with me from my previ0us apartment.  I noticed within that first year that it was taking longer and longer to dry a load of clothes.  Finally, when it […]

Beware of Gluten-Carrying Strangers

Posted March 5, 2010 By LifeIsChange

Ah, geez.  I couldn’t figure out, on Wednesday, why I was so scattered and unable to focus at work.  I slept enough the night before.  I took my ADD medication, just as I do every day.  I didn’t feel particularly overly hormonal.  The Fibro was apparently the reason my neck was hurting (more about the […]

When A Friend Becomes A Stranger

Posted March 6, 2010 By LifeIsChange

About four times a year, my neck starts to hurt, and it will hurt for a few days.  It starts out as that “I must have slept wrong” kind of feeling and then progresses until I can’t turn my head.  Because it’s so cyclical, and because I realized that it’s only a couple weeks earlier […]

Strange Horoscope

Posted March 10, 2010 By LifeIsChange

I don’t read my horoscope very often, especially the ones that show up on just about every home page option list that only take the sun sign into account.  I mean, come on, every Gemini out there is not going to have the exact same kind of day. But today, as I was revamping my […]

Seeing Myself As A Stranger

Posted March 13, 2010 By LifeIsChange

My therapist and I talked some more about the body image / self image thing when I saw her on the first.  One of the things we talked about was some professional photos that SS and I had taken in December (I’d emailed copies to her).  She asked me how I feel when I look […]

Things That Are Strange

Posted March 29, 2010 By LifeIsChange

1.  When you’re shopping and you see an adorable musical teddy-bear wearing a shirt that says, “You are the love of my life”, and you’re thinking you would like to buy it for your Someone Special, and you squeeze its paw to see what song it plays . . . and it’s the song that […]

Big Goodbyes, Magic Jars, and . . . Breathing

Posted March 2, 2011 By LifeIsChange

This post is about a couple of topics that are probably kind of strange to see written about in one blog post, but in the end, the connection will make sense. On February 8th, I had my final session with Therapist, after finishing my job and just before moving (yep; I’m in Jersey now, with […]

Rough Day

Posted June 13, 2011 By LifeIsChange

So, I went to the allergist this morning, and the good news is that I’m not allergic to any of the things they tested me for.  I don’t remember the whole list, but it included cats, dogs, milk, wheat, rice, dust mites, and some grasses and trees; I think Oak and Poplar were on that […]

My apologies to anyone who found this post by googling Katy Perry and then was disappointed to land on the blog of a middle-aged woman who blogs about her health and feeling old.  I would have written this as two separate posts, but it all goes together, for me. . . So, SS and I […]

Going Off Of Yaz / Beyaz

Posted July 19, 2011 By LifeIsChange

I realized it’s been a while, again, since I posted, so I think it’s time for a catch-up. The biggest thing that has been on my radar recently has been going off of Yaz (which is now called Beyaz). Ickiness warning for anyone who finds discussion of women’s health issues off-putting: the rest of this […]

Catching Up

Posted September 30, 2011 By LifeIsChange

Oh, there have been SO many things I’ve wanted to blog about lately, but life is still kind of sped-up for me right now.  I’ll continue to be busy-busy-busy for at least the next couple months.  Not that busy-busy-busy is bad, mind you.  It’s just . . . well . . . very busy. So, […]
