    I am sick, not dead. Remove the rails from ’round my bed. I am sick, not three. You must back off and let me be.  I am sick, not weak. So let me think and let me speak. I am sick, not dumb. Your meddling has made me numb. I am sick, not nuts. Your hovering consumes and cuts. I am sick, not blind. I’ve listened; please repay in kind. I am sick, not wrong. If you would look, you’d see I’m strong. I am sick, not slow. Don’t trap me or I’ll pack and go. I am sick, not lost. So keep it up, and pay the cost … for I am sick, not dead. Don’t make me…

    Writing a blog has been on my mind for many months now. The blog title came to me quite suddenly one day, but the practicalities stayed on hold in the day-to-day fog of my life at present. Today suddenly presented itself as “the day” to get started. Currently the chronic pain of Fibromyalgia and Lupus dominate my daily living and life definitely feels interrupted. I am slowly coming to terms with the fact that there is unlikely to be a quick fix or a cure. I find that taking increasingly powerful medication is sapping more life out of me as it takes increasing mounts of precious…
  • Horrifying Realistic Dreams

    The past few nights have brought about dreams that were extremely horrifying to say the least. These dreams have literally woken me out of a dead sleep they were so scary, with a heart rate even more elevated than my too fast norm. I have no clue where they came from and I remember EVERY little detail! I have always been a vivid dreamer ever since I was a child. They are so realistic and in such bright colors too. It’s like I am really there and whatever is going on is actually happening to me. I’ve woken up crying so hard I couldn’t catch my breath, screaming, laughing, shaking in…

  • Sticking with the minis: Hair clips to the rescue!

    21 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    These little guys have been lifesavers over the past few months!As strands continue to fall from my head, I've been trying to style my hair as little as possible. That's where these baby clips work wonders. I just gently pull back a little hair from each side, secure with a clip, and I'm done.You can see from the second picture how I've "graduated" to these less-than-dime-size clips. But I won't complain. One day, I'm sure my hair will return en masse, and I'll be searching the house for the bigger clips you see here.Until then, I'll stick with my minis!Always looking to learn something new…

  • Looking worn and in need of a pick-me-up? The Lovely Blog to the rescue!

    14 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    Chalk it up to the big birthday I had last month, or this latest bout of hair loss, but my skin has been feeling old. And looking old. And I was in need of a pickup.So when I was at the spa last month, I booked a facial. I couldn't wait to get in a room with an esthetician who could answer all of my burning questions:  Why did my skin all of a sudden stop cooperating? What about the redness around my cheeks? The uneven skin tone? The age spots? The dark circles? I mentioned that three years ago, I didn't seem to have any trouble with my skin. I've never worn foundation, or…
  • The instinct to "do" - a lupus liability for sure.

    11 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    It's hard to teach this old dog new tricks. Or rather, it's hard to keep a "doer" from doing.A few weeks ago, I had a case of poison ivy. It wasn't awful, but it was bad enough that I needed to treat it repeatedly with Zanfel, my favorite p.i. wash. I used it several days in a row - and to effectively use the wash, you have to wet your hands slightly, rub a small amount of Zanfel vigorously between your hands to activate the ingredient, and then rub vigorously on the affected area for 30 seconds or more. I had it on both legs, my torso, and a couple of spots on my arm - so I had some serious…
  • Gauging the success of my lupus nap: Letting the numbers talk.

    9 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    If you can believe it, I've been taking almost a 2-hour nap every afternoon for the past 11 years. It's become a part of my daily routine that I cannot, will not, and do not bypass. Too much good has come from napping - which you can read about here. Of course, every once in awhile, I have a moment of wishful thinking where I longingly say to myself, "I bet by this time next year, I'll be healthy enough not to nap every day." But that day never seems to come. I get tired every day, so I nap every day. And for me, that's okay. I've realized whether or not I need a nap isn't an indication of…

  • Exploded View

    12 Jul 2014 | 12:00 pm
    In my defense, I have thought about posting here…but have been a little distracted:       You know how the instructions to put things like furniture together are sometimes shown in, what is referred to as, an “exploded view”? Bits and pieces of the final product appearing to fly apart from some sort of big bang in the center? That has been my last two months. Don’t get me wrong – it has been a lot of fun to have my daughters back in the home, at least in stuff if not their personal presence, and my nest is alive again. I admit to have made things worse by…

    The subject of visibility is stuck in my brain these days. Over the past years, I’ve watched the emerging patient advocacy movement grow and individuals living with health challenges were finding empowerment in sharing the voice of their experiences and needs. The “Patient as consumer” or “Be your own best advocate” jargon is heard much more regularly than before. New health care access no longer pushes patients to live in the shadows as much as we used to feel necessary. One of the reasons I didn’t have insurance for 16 years was because of my preexisting condition, leaving me a…

    When he found himself in a conversation lull, he would simply throw out a “So-o-o-o-o...” (with a melodic lilt) to get things going again. I have been a little busy in the last month and am about to break my blogging rule of not disclosing my health out to the world. The reason I feel compelled to share it here is to work through some new things I’ve learned about myself when it comes to my health. If I aim to explore creating better health, then writing about the steps I take and trials I experience belong here. I suspect if you are reading this, then you already know that…

    In the late 90’s, I began my graduate program at the same time I received my diagnosis of lupus nephritis. As both of these events collided, I discovered how my life and my health experience were tightly woven together. This simple understanding about the relationship between body and mind can quickly unravel when faced with fear, barriers and shame. When I received my diagnosis, I learned how I cope with life and the particular strategies upon which I rely. My doctor suggested that I join a support group and I immediately responded with a “No thanks.” This surprise reaction to a…
