Day 15: my last day in CVCU

Day 15: my last day in CVCU

So much has changed in the days I’ve been in the hospital. I have been in every level of care, in 3 different buildings and like 6 different rooms. Every day, my condition changed and, with that, the doctors’ treatment plan. Today is my 15th day in the Salem Hospital. I’ve become stable enough in the past several days to be independent within my room […]

Captain’s Log: Day 11

Captain’s Log: Day 11

SO MUCH has happened in these past eleven days. It’s been a near-unbearable roller coaster ride of grandiose proportions. After my last post, I was told by the doctors that I have, not only a ton of clots hanging out in my lungs, but one GIANT clot completely occluding my left pulmonary artery; plus, because of the back pressure, I have severe heart failure. I’m […]

This is a long one, but I’ve been gone a while.

This is a long one, but I’ve been gone a while.

It’s 2:45am. I’ve been up for about an hour now…since my spO2 dropped to 81% and the alert woke me up…watching some bullshit on Discovery channel with naked people pretending to be survivalists, while my bff snores on the fold-down sofa. Let’s back up. I’ve been so sick since the middle of December. It started with the flu, the week of the 15th, then my […]

My *Big Dream*

My *Big Dream*

It’s old news that I’ve been reading Manifesting Made Easy, but I haven’t really gone in-depth on any of the work I’ve been doing around it. Today, I’m going to tell you about my Big Dream. In the early part of the book, one of the exercises is to get “crystal clear” on what you want out of life; if there were no limitations on your life […]

I’m becoming one of *those* people…

I’m becoming one of *those* people…

You guys! I’ve recently been diving head-first into manifesting my best life, and it’s actually changing me at my core! First, let me explain the book I’m currently reading (thanks to Summer’s suggestion). It’s called Manifesting Made Easy, by Jen Mazer and it goes in depth about the basic laws of attraction and how to raise your own vibrational frequency to manifest everything you’ve ever […]

Happy brand new year!

Happy brand new year!

I absolutely love a fresh, new year! I’m starting 2018 with a 7 day manifesting challenge. Yesterday the assignment was to declutter… well, I’ve been decluttering for years now, and almost everything I own has at least one specific use of brings me joy. However, I’ve been planning to get a new mattress for a few months now and just haven’t gotten around to it. […]

New Year New Me…wait, no that’s not right…

New Year New Me…wait, no that’s not right…

Whew, what a crazy couple of weeks I’ve had! I think I’m finally done with my round of sicknesses – I made it back to the gym today for the first time in two weeks… that was a bitch, for sure! I’m done with my astrological opposition too, so that’s nice; I feel like my hands are untied and I’m back on my game. That […]

Oh, THAT opposition…

Oh, THAT opposition…

Remember when I said that, astrologically speaking, I was supposed to be in a month-long opposition, but I felt like I was totally killing it at life? Well, I didn’t quite make it out scot-free. Yesterday morning, at about 1:45, I awoke to an unfamiliar urgency. I wasn’t quite sure what was happening, but I just knew that if I didn’t get out of bed […]

“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” -Vincent Van Gogh

Today is a wonderful day. I was chatting with Summer this morning about how great I feel today, then I stopped short and asked her if this was “gloating” because I didn’t want to feed my ego or make anyone else feel badly. Her response was simple and perfect: No, I don’t think it’s gloating. I think it’s pride and that is healthy. This is […]

Excuse me, do you have the Thyme?

Excuse me, do you have the Thyme?

Oh you guys!! I had a most amazing essential oil experience yesterday! So, I’ve been a doTERRA wellness advocate for almost 2 years now, and I firmly believe in their long term effects and benefits, but I’ve never had an instant gratification experience with them. UNTIL YESTERDAY! I regularly use different essential oils for many different things: Breathe for asthma and other respiratory issues OnGuard […]
