I took a fascinating art therapy workshop today and loved our experiential component of creating our own warrior headbands! If you know me, you know how much sense it makes that mine looks like a princess crown. #stillawarrior#arttherapy#svanyc
I've officially crossed over to old age. I'm having to resort to a pill sorter to keep track of all the medication and supplements I have to take...and these are just my evening pills. 😣#cancersucks#seniorat40#stillawarrior
I get angry. I get irritated. I get bitchy. I get down. I cry. I hate myself and the entire world at times. I'll cuss and I'll scream...
But you won't understand because you can't see. There's a battle inside of me. I fight it everyday.
And most of the time? I'm on the losing side.
I just wish you could see.
-Sheila Maria Brady...just me.

Me trying to get my laundry done and now I’m hungry again. I have to get some sleep but my left eye feels twitchy today, feel like a possible migraine coming: I can hardly get myself to eat when I start feeling reactive like this because I get nauseous and I’m exhausted and here comes the wave of symptoms that will try and pull you under making it harder to feel like I can get a really good deep breath because of the pain in my lower ribs and back and neck and shoulders. All of which contributes to painsomnia and it makes my brain spin so there is no way sleep will come easy tonight. I’ve had my earbuds in for 2 hours blocking out as much stimulus as possible. Oh and on top of having to pop my shoulders, back and neck back in place daily to be able to function. #dysautonomia#pots#migraine#amihypermobile#this 💩hurts
Still thankful my days have been better than my nights💪🏻 #stillawarrior
YOUR SCARS ARE WORTH THE CAUSE!
In your attempt to wake up to purpose, the adversary will fight you on all fronts. Stand your ground and resist him at all cost in the power of God"s strength. Fight for purpose even if it will cost you a million scars and bruises. Scars do speak, and yours will speak for you some day. And you know what, they are worth the fight because living for your Maker's purpose is the essence of your life! Do something purposeful today! I salute all warriors in the battlefield! Shalom!
Almost a year ago, a devastating brain aneurysm/stroke devastated my life and the lives of my family! I have made huge strides in my recovery, but I still have such a long road ahead! It's frustrating because I'm not where I need to be right now, but I have to remind myself that I am still here and I'm still a wife and mother to the people that love me and take care of me! I get very emotional because my kids and husband have a lot on their plate and I worry especially about my kids, but I shouldn't. because they are beautiful, healthy and very intelligent people. The girls, in particular, are straight A students and will continue to be. They are kind, loving and caring! I am so proud of all 3 of my kids. Although this experience is tough, it is making them stronger and better people. I am the person I am today because I , also, had to take care of my mother when I was young.#survivor#stillawarrior#lookatwhatICanDo#fuckyeah
