The Truth Is Hard To Face.

This is so great and so true! The days we feel the weakest because the world is throwing everything at us are the days we are the strongest and bravest because we’re still here afterwards. Also, so beautifully written!

Indisposed and Undiagnosed

One day you are going to look back at this moment and realise that this was you at your strongest, not weakest;

That what felt like the end of the world, wasn’t;

That behind the tears and the ugly in Chronic Illness,

you were beautiful;

That you were destined for things beyond medication trials and side effects,

soulcrushing appointments and trying to keep food down;

And on this day,

you’ll know that you

defined brave,

and that you were loved more than you knew.

A neverending day of shaking, nausea, medication numbness, holding onto everything to stay balanced, an inability to digest, and my love for this toilet.

Been Too Long

Just giving you guys an update on life. Lots to share not a lot of energy to type it. Hope to be posting again soon. Take care of yourselves!

In the future, much smaller vlog’s or paying for wordpress if I want to keep sharing that way….which is actually much easier for me. So come see me face to screen if you want if not you can catch me next time. Also, I did not make notes for the video, I say umm a lot, please forgive me, lol.

My First Ever Vlog!!

A Lesson In Herpes Stigma, Via Facebook Comments

BuzzFeed postThe classic mantra of reading, writing and merely existing on the Internet is “Don’t read the comments.” Internet comments, and Facebook comments in particular, are widely discredited as a cesspool of nastiness and trolling. If the writer or subject of a given article is anyone other than a straight, white man, the comments are even worse. God forbid a post explicitly be about any sort of social justice topic—the comments on a post about bigotry inevitably prove its point.

I actually love Facebook comments. A big part of my job in social media is reading feedback on articles and talks in comment threads, and they can be insightful and even heartwarming. Whenever a publication shares a post by or about me on their Facebook page, I make sure to jump into the comments and introduce myself so that interested readers can find my official page more easily.
