This is an experiment born out of a complete lack of support & resources, some health concerns, some life concerns, an attempt at healing, and a lot of frustration & anxiety.
The short short version is this: My whole life has been a roller coaster ride but in just one year there’s been: a stage 4 cancer diagnosis for my husband who was in remission but for whom we are currently awaiting new biopsy results, the loss of my relationship with my mother, a complete dissolution of my relationship with my father & the subsequent loss of my job (he owned the business), my own (long time coming) diagnosis with fibromyalgia, and so many other things. Stress? We’ve got it in spades. Uncertainty? Fully stocked.
The idea here is to have a place to be honest about what’s going on because in order to muddle through there have been a lot of Fake-It-Til-You-Make-It Smiles. If you’d like to join me for the ride, I welcome it.
