My Journey Continues

Penning anything about myself is an unusual endeavor as I am extremely private; revealing myself to the world is something I feel God is leading me to do, in hopes to not only help others, but magnify Himself. Without Him, we are nothing. Without Him, I would not be writing.

Being candid about my struggles has to be viewed from the outside looking in; instead of seeing my experiences through a personal magnascope, I must swivel and realize that this is like a detergent for others facing similar difficulties. The abhorrence of appearing like a victim, or having a woe is me mentality if I share too much, is replaced with the cleansing realization that I can identify with many others; my struggle may or may not match yours, however we are all sondering in one direction or another.

As I forge onward with these musings intertwined with my story, I feel it only best to give you a preview into what my life is like at this very moment. The most imposing issues now are fatigue and insomnia – that’s it! I am maintaining weight, cognitive functioning is replacing brain fog and short-term memory loss; cramps are a bit less, my olfactory system has the cogs turning once again and the drug induced lupus symptoms are beginning to leave, ever so slowly. Precious pooch has a precious new bestie named Kiwi and the therapy these two dogs present is a comforting balm. Progress is being made!
