***DISCLAIMER*** I do not have a medical degree (shocker), so I cannot give you sound medical advice. I can only share my experience and encourage you to talk to your doctors if you have concerns. There is no substitute for amazing doctors. Also, TMI warning. I will be talking a lot about breasts. On Friday,… Continue reading Breast Surgery
As I've gotten older, one thing I've learned is to lean into people I trust to tell me what I need to hear, whether I like it or not. Don't misunderstand, there will always be people who want to tell you what to do and they won't always be people you trust... Make sure you… Continue reading Control Freak
Busy, but blessed day off work today! I got caught up on several personal things I needed to work on. For those of you asking, yes I have continued to get my symptom check ups from the Kentucky department of health. But I did hear yesterday on our Governors daily address that with the number… Continue reading COVID Chronicles – Day 14
Home stretch, people. Day 12. Today, I have felt overall pretty good. Had a couple moments of headache/nausea, but they were short lived. Consistently for me, the worst symptom I have experienced is the headache. It was unlike any headache I’ve ever experienced. And at its worst, no medicine I tried helped at all.

I should be in half marathon shape, ready to cross another finish line and cheer on my fellow MS runners and supporters as they finish their races… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 9
How can it feel like this year has lasted 1000 months and flown by at the same time? My last check-up with my neurologist was in February, right before COVID and quarantine hit our state. That visit was a little disheartening and dramatic as we learned about a potential pituitary tumor (thankfully after a look… Continue reading JCV Negative and MS Check-Up!
It’s been a year, am I right? For all of us. I think once this is alllllllllll over (LORD, Jesus... please let there be an end to all this!) we won’t soon forget struggles of 2020. For me, this year began with such fresh hope. 2019 kicked my butt. I remember texting my dear friend… Continue reading Let’s cut ourselves some slack.
