I had a very bad flareup yesterday as felt very fatigued and my whole body felt so weak, while standing I was shaking but had to act strong because had a gathering with relatives at my sister's place. I am finally feeling so much better after a good night's rest and am so grateful I feel better!

🎶💗”The bigger depression hits, the louder my praise gets
The bigger depression hits, the louder my praise gets,
Even if the drum stops beating
My soul will keep on singing
Even louder, even louder
Even when my eyes can't see it
I will sing till I believe it
Even louder, even louder”💗🎶

If music is a healer for you, and you rely on the words to remind you that you can survive anything, you have to check out I’m Not Broken by Sarah Jane Nelson. The whole song is beautiful with an amazing lesson, but the chorus is my new mantra ❤️

I had a really crappy day, 5 days after getting married to my soulmate and my rock. This darkness won’t win. I will be strong and conquer. I am a family man. I am me.


Despite #overcoming my entire self, I am #strong . Because no matter how many times I have wanted to call it a day, and head on up to #heaven ...I just do not have that option. I couldn't #bare to not be able to see, hug, laugh, snuggle, discipline, #raise my son and daughter. #Truelove #iamstrong #Toddlermom #axton #monroe


Emotional Setback. #CheckInWithMe

The rush of emotions I had today was crazy. We all know what I have going on, but to have my husband have a bit of a scare...

That's where I was strong all through the process and then I got home last night exhausted, so I slept a bit. Then this morning when I first woke up I was strong. I knew I could handle what was coming.

The catch is as soon as I got the ok and all clear, my hubby can come back home. I felt the sigh of relief quickly followed by a flood of all the emotions I wanted to have as everything was actually in motion.

This is how I was trained. As a very young girl I had to know how to get through emergency situations without panic or disregard. My mom had horrible uncontrolled type 1 diabetes. I knew how to dial 911 at the age of two and how to not overreact when an ambulance showed up at about four.

However, this is where I also learned, after it is said and done... have a mental breakdown. Not only for all the incredible stress we have going on in life right now, like so many do during this time of year. It brought me back to remembering how I learned to be a calm cool cat... my mom.

Finally, I am trying to rest with no success. My mind won't stop and the tears have been coming and going uncontrollably today. I feel my funk setting in. I've had enough and I'm about to crack (at least the titanium will hold most of me together), I'll be fine, it just might take some time.

Gotta keep pushing on

Its one week post surgery for me. Im tired, in pain and weak. My incision burns in my Upper back and my other incision is in The back of my neck. Neurosurgeries are difficult. This being my third one, (Neurosurgery). My ninth surgery in total, I am just tired. I have to keep going and try to fill my mind and soul with positive thoughts and vibes.
