Meeting New People

Starting something new and knowing that you’re going to be meeting a lot of new people – people that you’re going to spend a lot of your time with for a week, a month, a year – is always tough.

A Jaw Update & Call to Arms (Or Thumbs)

I’ve been meaning to write this post for about a week, but I hadn’t gotten round to it until now!

Here’s what she had to say: Abandonment: it is a word we in the… Continue reading The Importance of Emotional Support With Chronic Conditions

Nothing To Do With Crafting

Even though I’ve already told myself that my chronic illness posts (still don’t have a title for the segment, I need some name-related inspiration) are going to be on the last Friday of every month, I just couldn’t wait to post this one. Those of you who read my Something A Little More Personal post will know… Continue reading Nothing To Do With Crafting
