New Years Eve

Today I will travel to Nashville to meet with Jami Lyn Miller, MD, to discuss the chronic skin condition that I have called Hidradenitis Suppurativa.  It has been years since I have focused on my skin due to other health problems.  My local dermatologist, Doctor Whittaker, took me off of Humira on September 23, 2016, due to the brain scans. Doctor Gaw officially diagnosed me with Multiple Sclerosis on January 11, 2017.   Recently I have been losing weight, but my diet has been all over the place, mainly because of emotional eating.  I have a stomach bug, so I have detoxed from all my current medicine.  To say,” I feel everything is an understatement!  I even have phantom pain from having teeth pulled years ago.  It's crazy, and yet it feels good to feel pain because it gives me a sense of peace knowing that I feel something!  I have been heavily medicated for three years now, and even with the occasional detox due to health problems, I have never felt like myself.

News: I recently found out that I have fatty liver disease, so I must stay away from anything that will make that worse.

The picture below is the best breakfast to calm down an upset tummy.  Oatmeal, dry toast, and banana!  It was dairy-free!   I also sipped ice water and lemon-lime Gatorade all day.

I hope you have a fabulous day! Much Love - Tina

We have to stop meeting like this....

Tonight I talked to myself.  I said,” self, why do you feel the way you do?”  Then I said,” self, we have to stop meeting like this because it's one o'clock in the morning”!  I laughed because regardless of the predicament I find myself in, sometimes I don't understand why I do the things I do. Have you ever had a random thought and wondered, “why did I think about that?.  I try to ignore my random thoughts and feelings, but sometimes they just come out when I least expect it. Example 1 ~ When I forget to take my medication, I feel everything.  The depression, sadness, and pain flood in, and all I can do is cry myself to sleep. Example 2 ~ I was watching season three of Anne with an E tonight, and it hit me.  I was crying and feeling very sad.  I should be happy because it was a beautiful ending. However, my mind was thinking about how they loved each other in their youth and found each other again. Right now, in my life, love songs and anything sappy makes me cry.

Beauty in the chaos

Early voting started Friday, so I went to town and voted in the States Primary.  It was a peaceful drive, and then Friday night, we watched the movie 2012. There are so many theories and conspiracies floating around online that the movie made me think about all of them. My thoughts quickly turn to religion and how none of us know when our lives will end. Humanity has gotten it wrong, so many times, and religious leaders continue to attempt to guess, but even the Bible says no one knows. One thing that I know for sure is the earth is a breathtaking place, and I continue to find small glimpses of its beauty amidst the chaos.  Just yesterday, we went to Fall Creek Falls State Park, and I took a dip in the cold water. Families and children were everywhere, laughing and playing.  You would never think that the USA is in an uproar. I saw no signs of social distancing or a pandemic.  I didn't see any mask.  Men were walking their dogs, and the beautiful smells of wood burning flo
