Hello, my dear Grief Happens readers. I've missed you! I'm fighting the urge to vomit out everything that's going on in my life. I mean...I want to share, but it feels like too much. Not too much in the normal way that I typically feel like it's all too much, though. This feels heavier and … Continue reading A Quick Check-in…
So THIS happened over the weekend: Yes, friends, I jacked up my knee, so I'm practicing RICE. That's Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. I forget that I'm clinically hyper until something of this nature forces me to sit still for extended periods of time. This is day three of this RICE jazz and I am over … Continue reading View From the Couch
