Tribe Bracelets, Yes, “Tribe!”

I color. I doodle. I Zentangle! Now I make Tribe Bracelets! It's just me, making what is otherwise known as friendship bracelets. When I am in pain, I escape by creating a bracelet. It is mind work. It is healing. There are two patterns that I really like, so I make them. (They are not... Continue Reading →

A Wedding and a Power Ranger

I completely forgot to finish the second part of my original post! To read the first installment, click here. But it really isn't necessary, this is pretty self-explanatory. As we were ready to say our vows, listening to the beautiful singer we had hired for our wedding belt out "I Believe in You and Me."... Continue Reading →

Don’t Mess With Texas

I want to say hello! I fought my way back! I thought about how I started this blog to simply remember how to write, not much more than that... but did I receive so much more from all of you! Wow. I want to share an account of the road (paved with good intentions) that... Continue Reading →

Talking Bluntly about Night Time Chronic Pain

September is National Pain Awareness Month. I have a chronic pain disease called Fibromyalgia Syndrome. You can read what fibro is: here. (This is a typical night for me. I describe it as follows.)

Revisiting Trauma?

I believe I am revisiting past physical trauma. I am struggling with a flare. This makes sense as there are so many significant changes happening in my life (selling my home and moving while flaring!). But. This flare is eerily similar to those flares I had right after the car accident I was in. How am... Continue Reading →

What is … IT?

What the heck is fibromyalgia? The truth is, we know of it. We know it is about pain. We know it is chronic, there is no cure. We do not know with certainty how it happens, what toll it will take on a person's life, or why it varies from person to person. How do we expect other people... Continue Reading →

I only want the best for her. She saw me through many years of health, happiness, illness, sadness... but I could no... Continue Reading →

Have You Ever Been Happy Sad?

Does this make sense? Have you ever been happy and sad at the same time? Happily sad? Thinking of memories, some make you sad, but you are still happy to have these memories. That's where I find myself at this moment. I am happy sad... Currently, I am at our family lake home. This is... Continue Reading →

Escaping Through the Fog

I have some thoughts to share with you. I don't know if I am right, but this makes sense to me. How do we escape the chronic pain we are in every day, 24 hours a day? I think the answer is Fibro Fog. Is it possible we are dreading the very fog we should... Continue Reading →

The Range (Magic Memory)

Hello! You probably know my name is Kim and I have Fibromyalgia Syndrome. I also have significant cognitive difficulties because of it... so I blog! It is definitely mind work.
