Hope in hopelessness

I just got out of an emotionally abusive relationship. I have been hopeless in uncertainty. Prayed but it felt as if my prayers were not answered. Yesterday, the uncertainty ended, he told me he wouldn't want to continue and the pain, anxiety just lifted. It's not easy but knowing that healing is all I have to do now, I have peace. You are not alone, pray for strength and at the right time when that's all you need, you will feel it and you will overcome. Never give up on yourself and know that it's not your fault no matter how they try to paint it. I know I will be alright. There's joy at the end, take the courage and begin a new path. #self love #courageoverfear

Looking for Courage

I’m headed out the door soon to get the Moderna vaccine. My anxiety is through the roof. Should I, shouldn’t I? I’m afraid to get it and afraid not to. Fear, fear, fear. I’m so tired of living in fear. Looking for my calm... #AnxietyAttack #peace #courageoverfear


You Have the Power to Inspire & Change the Lives of Others

TODAY I contacted our leader @nygovcuomo to ensure this is dealt with properly and stops happening, not just in NY, but across the country.

Today I Chose:
To Have Courage To Be Vulnerable And Authentic.
To Confidently Lead And Advocate For Not Just Myself But For Lives Of Others.
To Gracefully Use My Voice For Good.

I may look healthy to you but I am in the current “High Risk” population. Among several other diagnosis, I have Lupus. I’m one of many individuals that rely on the drug Plaquenil (Hydroxychloroquine) as part of my treatment to keep my disease under control. Currently this drug is being used as part of a promising treatment for COVID-19.

I agreed without hesitation to take less than a month’s supply, knowing there is a shortage at pharmacies across the country. I will try to take only half the dosage my treatment calls for in order to extend my supply and give someone else with COVID-19 a fighting chance to survive.

I will NOT tolerate the negligence of doctors around the country hoarding and unnecessarily prescribing this drug “just in case” to people they should not. This drug is still in the trial phases. It should only be prescribed for those who have tested positive for COVID-19 and need this treatment to survive. I’m thrilled there are now treatment options but there has to be a standard protocol set in place for who can prescribe this medication and when. This medication is already depleted from most pharmacies across the nation!

If we are in this together, then let’s start making choices that act accordingly. Stay Home Be Safe Wash your Hands & Keep Social Distancing. It will also save lives!
