Gaze Into My Soul

I am starting yet another chapter in my life and as a result have hidden all previous posts effective today (July 20, 2016). In 2001 I was diagnosed with Mixed Connective Tissue Disease. In 2003 I left my specialist, quit taking all the nasty prescriptions he had heaped upon me, and started fighting to get better. I've done well since then. There have been battles, and periods of time spent in the hospital or at home in bed. However, I spent the majority of it out and about. Far from what most would consider "healthy", I was still able to continue living and participate in activities that please me.

This past year my body has waged a violent war against me. Facing a myriad of problems, I've finally encountered a combination of issues that has resulted in my facing the inevitable, it is now time to return to the nasty meds. The side effects are awful, and cripple my activity extremely. This blog will be about this particular journey. 

However, every journey is filled with multiple dynamics. I am the single full time mother of three amazing children. I have a 19 year old son who excels at designing video games and 3D programming. He proudly lets others know he has a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome, knowing there is no reason that he should hide it or that he needs a "cure". He also fights a myriad of health issues, that we are only just coming close to getting answers to after his entire life of digging for. Unfortunately those answers don't bring treatment options. I also have a gorgeous 16 year old daughter who works with abused and neglected animals and rehabilitates them. Think the "horse whisperer" but with all animals. Then there is my 10 year old who is diagnosed with High Functioning Autism, possibly Childhood Onset Schizophrenia and plans to compete in the Olympics and place in Gymnastics. 

You'll learn more about me as time goes on. But this seems to be a good start. I answer all emails, and reply to all comments. Health restrictions may limit my time in doing so, but I will do so.
