“People are like plants, they grow towards the light”

I’ve never always had a green thumb. I remember in middle school I was supposed to see how different light sources affected the growth of plants. I had everything setup; the same type of pots, the same type and number of seeds, the same amount of soil, and I watered the seeds with the same amount of water from the same source. Let’s just say the fact that I was creative saved me because the actual experiment yielded zero results. Nothing grew. Out of six pots that each had two seeds, not one grew. Even though I had nothing to present, my poster and written study gave me an A for that project.

Fast forward to today. I have about 20 or so plants growing in my apartment. I don’t know what it is about plants but, I love taking care of them. My dream house includes have a yard big enough to grow vegetables, herbs, and fruits in the back and flowers in the front. But, until then, I’m working with the small that I have in my barely 1000 sqft apartment.

Now, out of my 20 or so plants, there was a lily I bought 2 years ago. I kept the lily on my balcony and it flourished beautifully. As the hot months started to turn cold, the lily died. I wanted to try and save it so, I brought it inside and attempted to nurture it back to health. Throughout the 2 years I watched the lily sprout new plants but, it could never fully bloom to a flower.

Hi, My Name Is Anxiety and I Like To Screw With Your Thoughts

I should be happy because now I know why I’ve been in pain for so many years but, my anxiety has been getting the best of me lately.

I’ve slowly been open about my fibromyalgia. Talking about the fibromyalgia has me talking about the symptoms I’ve been hiding throughout the years. Like I said in my other posts, I didn’t know I had fibromyalgia, I just knew I had all these things going on with me (most I’ve kept to myself). So now when I tell people the brain fog, constant nausea, constant headaches, etc. I have are things that come along with having fibromyalgia, I think they think I’m over exaggerating.

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia two weeks ago today. However, I’ve been dealing with chronic pain and the accompanying symptoms that comes with fibromyalgia for about 10 years, without even knowing I had it.

As I go through the what’s and how’s of fibromyalgia, you’ll come to understand why it may take years for someone to finally get diagnosed with it.

“It is therefore with great regret that we must notify you…”

December 22, 2016

“It is therefore with great regret that we must notify you that you have been academically dismissed from the University.”

Here I am a couple of years shy of 30 and I don’t have a college degree, not even an associates. I have a pretty decent job, I’m actually quite surprised where I am considering I don’t have a degree. However, I know I can be in a much better place if I have one.

Last year I was in a bad place, mentally and physically. Was I suicidal? No. But, even though I wasn’t diagnosed, I was battling some form of depression. Continue reading ““It is therefore with great regret that we must notify you…””
