The Reason Why – I Am The Queen of TMI

*WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS GRAPHIC CONTENT*   Once upon a time, there was a girl named Meleah. She was a free-spirited, good-time-having, happy-go-lucky, kind of girl, filled with whimsical hopes and dreams. She lived to laugh. And she liked to imagine a world with endless possibilities.       But then one day, everything changed. […]

Happy New Year MoFos – Wrapping up 2012 – Welcoming 2013

  2012 was an interesting year for me, to say the least. I really took a beating health wise. But it wasn’t all bad. Let’s recap. Shall we? In January, my dearest friend “Melody” was forced to climb Broke Box Mountain. And quite frankly, I hope she never has to climb that mountain, ever again. […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 19: Full Body Scan

“The technician missed her vein! The injection didn’t go into her blood stream! Page Dr. Lizensczhacts! STAT!” The flustered nurse screamed across the Emergency Room. The skin on my arms bubbled up until it was covered with welts and blisters. The heart monitor beeped loudly and the oxygen mask strapped to my face felt suffocating. […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 13: Knee Jerk Reactions

“The results of your MRI revealed an unspecified bone marrow abnormality in your right knee. Here’s a copy of the test results. Please contact either your rheumatologist or your family physician, as soon as possible, so they can determine whether or not to go ahead with a full body bone scan.”     It’s not […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 12 : The Power of Saying, “No.”

Saying, “No!” seems like it should be easy enough. It’s two little letters. It’s one simple word. And while I have no problem saying, “No!” when it comes to my son, I’ve had difficulty saying, “No!” when it comes to other family members and sometimes even my friends. By a show of hands, who else […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 10: Hurricane Sandy – The Conclusion

It’s fairly safe to say Hurricane Sandy was the worst storm in history for New York and New Jersey. We are still suffering from effects of the aftermath.   And I’m sure it didn’t help matters when we got slammed with that Nor’easter just a few days later. Especially for all of the people who […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 9: Hurricane Sandy – Part Three

It’s no surprise that I woke up with a significant hangover, after the night before, but that didn’t stop me from grabbing my son, packing up my favorite belongings, and hightailing it out of New Jersey. After a fist-full of Tylenol, and some Dexeter Coffee, my son and I loaded up the car with our […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 7: Hurricane Sandy – Part One

The day Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey, started like any other typical Monday. Coffee. Cigarette. Brush teeth. Log into Facebook. Update Status. Check emails. Check text messages. Get more coffee. A light rain fell from the skies and it was a little windy. But there didn’t seem to be any cause for concern. In fact, […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 6: Hurricane Sandy – Part Six

Wanna know the first thing I did when I walked in the door of my house, after the power was restored, and after thanking the heavens above? Cleaned. Yep. That’s right. I cleaned the whole house from top to bottom. Before I unpacked. Before I took a shower. Before I ate any food. Before I […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 4: Still | Otherwise Known As Hurricane Sandy – Part 4

DISCLAIMER: I wrote this yesterday, before the power was restored. But, I still wanted to share this post with you, because it’s exactly how I felt at the time. And maybe others will still be able to relate to it. Also, I’m sorry this is Hurricane Sandy – Part Four  instead of Hurricane Sandy – […]
