REvamping. REnewing My Life and Blog

I am hoping to revamp this blog into something useful for people and family members of those suffering from silent and invisible illnesses. 

Over the last few years, I have been afflicted with a silent condition.  The condition is Fibromyalgia.  I also live with PTSD and depression.  I have a son who suffered a TBI a little over a year ago and we, as a family, are learning to live and cope with these issues.  And hopefully, along the way, offer some inspiration and solidarity to people quietly living with these issues. 

 I hope I gain new readers and friends on this journey.

Life Altering Circumstances and Stuff Like That.

When I first started this blog, I had great aspirations and hope that I would eventually own either a bakery or food truck.  Those dreams, through various twists and turns and roads not taken, have been squished, squashed, imploded, blown to smithereens. 

I have recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.  I've known for years that something hasn't been quite right.  I just pretended that the tingling, itching, aching, throbbing pain was what everyone felt.  I remember asking my husband..."Don't your hurt all the time" and him replying with a simple "no".  

That was years ago.  I spent the next years just assuming that I would eventually have enough of the pain to actually visit my doctor, get a magic pill and all would be well.  That is not at all how it went down.  

So, now I have a diagnosis and a lot of anger and lots and lots of questions.
