Sarcoidosis is a chronic illness with no cure.

This is me at least once a week!

where do i go from here??

I am not a depressed kind of person...never have been. Even when life was at its worst, I still made my way into the world each day and found meaning and happiness among people. There was only one occasion which changed this-morning sickness. I tolerated morning sickness for four full pregnancies and one that ended … Continue reading where do i go from here??

acceptance…

We all know intuitively that we have little control over much of our lives, and yet we try to control as much as we can in an effort to cope. For some people, this can become an obsession and even manifest as mental illness in the form of OCD, anorexia and more. Fear and anxiety … Continue reading acceptance…

Now that the button is gone, I had to let the new phone figure out my face in order … Continue reading i have a beef with “face id”…

Yes, it's true. I vacuum my refrigerator. I also vacuum my drawers and my cabinet shelves. And the bases of my toilets. In fact, I love the vacuum cleaner. I have two vacuum cleaners which I use for different tasks. But more about that momentarily. I let my housekeeper go when I went on disability … Continue reading i vacuum my refrigerator…

a sarcoidosis poem…

This week I saw my rheumatologist and discovered that I have two kinds of arthritis at my reasonably young age-osteoarthritis and inflammatory arthritis, the latter being from the Sarcoidosis. Thank goodness it's just two kinds, because she was originally entertaining the possibility that I also had Rheumatoid Arthritis, so (whew) I'm relieved! So the OA … Continue reading a sarcoidosis poem…
