Thankful Things Thursday: Today I Ran & Picked A Giveaway Winner

Guess how many friends I made on the subway this morning? Zero. Exactly zero. I was the girl with the suitcase. It wasn’t even a crowded train, but people still loathed the presence of my little brown bag on wheels. I did, however, get to sit down next to a lady who was reading that […]

Thankful Things Thursday: For The People I Love

Hello, and welcome to Sappyville, USA. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to name it Sappyville or Saptown.

Thankful Things Thursday: The Steroids Aren’t Fun Anymore!

I really don’t want to be thankful today. I know, that’s not normal. I freakin’ love being thankful and grateful and being all “yay to the beauty of the world!” But today, I don’t feel normal. I feel like, in the past 24 hours, my body has gone through some sort of Wizard of Oz: […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Prednisone, You Complete Me & Make Me Hyper

The good: There’s a lot of good. Namely that I didn’t night sweat to death last night. I still engaged in a bit of overnight perspiration, but not nearly as drastically as the past few nights. These little changes are making a huge improvement in my hourly moods. The bad: I still slept like total […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Rest & Recovery

The road to recovery is proving to be a long one. I really thought I was going to sleep like a champion last night and wake up feeling fully rested and ready to rock this day. That wasn’t the case. I don’t feel terrible — still no more throwing up and my fever has stayed […]
