Spoons please!?

I slept from around midnight until 7AM. I slept petty decently I think. I have a slight headache but otherwise nothing too unbearable. Heating pad on my back for warmth…..ahhh the life of a person with chronic illness! I have Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension. Right now I’m just trying to stay upbeat even though my family members do everything they can to prevent it. I miss my pets who have gone to rainbow bridge. I hate change. I like the way things used to be.

I checked the mail but no freebies for me today, darnit!!!!

Six Word Saturday

Surviving by binge watching  youtube vids!

I’ve been passing away the past weeks worth of time by watching youtube videos. If it wasn’t for youtube I would have had a nervous breakdown this past week I am sure. So much going on. Physically. Mentally. And my laptop gets sent away monday to be fixed i’ll be internet-less and that’s my WHOLE world. sad, but true.


Seasonal Affective Disorder/Holiday Blues

“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon — instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.” — Dale Carnegie

Every year when Halloween time is upon us, and the clocks roll back an hour – it happens. I go from “my” version of okay to seriously down in the dumps within days of cold weather time. It is exaggerated when it’s dark outside at 4pm here in NY too. This feeling will last until May. I know because this happens every darn year.


The Beginning!

Hi and welcome to my first post at my brand new BLOG! :-D My name’s Amanda and I have had online journals before but never really tried to be a blogger – since I fail at making regular journal entries (I always think they have to be looooong) I thought perhaps a blog would be the way to go! I hope you’ll bookmark this site before you leave today so that you can come back and read as I go along on this new adventure!
