An update on my Chronic Life (including sky diving!) and health since my last post.
Bottling up our thoughts and feelings related to our chronic illness and pain is often necessary. However, it is also important to share these with someone who understands; otherwise, they will suffocate us. Here is one of my chronic confessions. Send me yours to be part of a new section on this blog: Uncorked Confessions.
Celebrating Purple Day. How a chronically ill Spoonie, her Dish husband, their fiddle playing cat, and their laughing dog spent Purple Day 2012. Plus a summary of some of Bottled Time’s favorite other Purple Day celebrations. Lots of pictures. Lots of laughs. Lots of awareness raised for seizures and epilepsy. *Disclaimer – the cat does not actually play a fiddle. We don’t own one. We do however have ukuleles, a saxaphone, a guitar, a flute, and a piano.
I am painting my blog purple for Purple Day! One change a day between now and Monday, March 26th. Can you spot the changes? If you can you could win some great prizes packages!
Epilepsy and seizures can cause feelings of isolation and loneliness. International Purple Day, March 26th, is a day to let those with epilepsy and seizure disorders know that they are not alone. Reasons those with seizures feel alone are discussed along with what can be done for Purple Day to make them feel connected and supported.
Christmas and New Year’s Eve fun despite chronic illness and its unpredictable nature.
Christmas celebrations and December travels despite inflammatory bowel disease and chronic illness flares. Sky lanterns, puppies, and bookstores, oh my!
Television can help us cope with the stress in our lives. Sometimes what shows what shows we choose to aid us in this process can be surprising. Especially when life, work, and our relationships are affected by chronic disease. Humor, pictures, and video included.
