Bruises

I fell the other day…so the bruises on my knees are from the fall. The other bruises…I have no clue where they came from from…really? Top of my right foot to my left shin…I have some on my arms, hands…have no clue…they might be from the fall but they are in odd spots as well.

Eh? Oh well.

Do you find bruises and have no idea where they came from?

Blessings.

Anthony Bourdain

Again.  This has to stop.  Please call someone – anyone for help.

If you’re struggling, please know you are never alone. Reach out. Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline ‘1-800-273-TALK (8255)’. 

As I love all things food, I truly loved watching Parts Unknown.  We would binge watch especially when I was couch bound due to my fatigue/joint pain from Lupus on the weekends.  I would watch for hours, and then become suddenly inspired to try to come up with something new in the kitchen.  This didn’t always work, and sometimes we would order out Chinese food.

Bourdain’s personality, ego, and at the same time, humility was inspiring to watch as he mingled with the people in the places he explored.  He would showcase cooks, farmers, and family members–just what I would consider everyday people.  But he would expose them for the greatness that they truly are.  He saw that greatness in them.

Thank you for that sir.  We will miss you.

Again, so many of us struggle.  Please call and talk to someone —anyone.

Sjogren’s Syndrome

One of the many auto-immune disorders I have is Sjogren’s Syndrome, and April is its awareness month.  I won’t fill the month with information on it, but wanted you to be aware of some of the many symptoms people may suffer.

Shots

I do this weekly.

It stings, but doesn’t hurt. I hate doing this, but I know it helps me.

Weekly…shots.

Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Raynaud’s Syndrome—crap.  So…life.

Blessings.
