The Shit Show – Starring the Lyonchs

Can we talk about the absolute bullshittery involved with navigating the world of health care and doctor's appointments and tests and follow up? It's why people with chronic illnesses lose their jobs or their loved ones quit jobs to become caretakers, because just wading through the bureaucracy takes full time energy and investment. After being... Continue Reading →

Heart over head

Yesterday on my way back from the bathroom, the tunnel vision, knee buckling collapse came so quickly that I couldn't sit and instead came crashing down into a plan B sandwich board sign, first becoming confused then losing consciousness. Two public health nurses and a nurse supervisor found me, took my pulse and my blood... Continue Reading →

A few more

I lifted the rest of the pictures from the listing to share with y'all because omg i'm so excited! I could hardly fall asleep last night even though, you know, the big deal is kind of done (the other pieces of home buying are stressful, but they aren't the same kind of will-it-won't-it stress) . . ....

Brains: an update

Thanks for the Ts & Ps, y'all. I didn't realize how much anxiety I had about so much of this until I wrote it out, and then got a migraine in the middle of a meeting and came home and lost it with my sweet L. I went to see the neurologist today. After describing... Continue Reading →

Brains!

  You may recall that after years of getting migraines very ‘seasonally’ (ie: like 3-4 times a year on ‘special occassions’) I started getting them 2-3 times a month this past summer. I attributed this to the move from Denver to Seattle, although in retrospect, the increase actually started before we moved. I went to... Continue Reading →
