December 20, 2018!

In case you’re new to the blog, take note: we’re all sick or dysfunctional in some way: Micah has high functioning autism and anxiety; Amanda has depression, probably endometriosis, and she’s a recovering alcoholic; and I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, chronic constipation, plus I have some other unidentified health issues that have taken me […]

We Left, but Now We’re Back

I stopped updating the website a while ago, because life was just becoming too much. Not in a “I’m really depressed, I can’t handle life” kind of way, but in a “holy shit, can we just catch a break” sort of way. It’s just been one thing after another. Instead of posting all of that […]

Sample of a Fibro Flare up

I don’t know why I do this to myself. I mean, I do know why: I’m stubborn and I’m stupid. I hate taking medicine, so every so often I convince myself that I will be fine without the handful of pills I’m expected to take in order to sleep and function like an intelligible zombie […]

Keto Staple Products We Purchased on Amazon

First of all, I love Amazon. I know there’s some negative controversy around the company, but I’m black and gay in America. My life is controversy and I have plenty of other things to hate. Let me enjoy my two-day shipping dammit! We had a little extra money a few weeks ago, so I bought […]

Salt Water Flush for Chronic Constipation?

Do you have chronic constipation or IBS-c? I imagine so since you’re on this page. If you’re like me, you’ve probably tried everything hoping to find relief. Laxatives, magnesium, belly massage, salads, water, mineral oil, coffee, Miralax, stool softeners, Epsom salt, ACV and lemon juice… You name it, I’ve likely tried it. So, this trend […]

Vlog 3: Is My 7 year old Autistic? ASD screening and results

It’s funny, before this year, autism was the furthest thing from my mind. All I knew was autistic kids rock back and forth, and have zero emotions. Just judging by that, there was no way Micah was on the spectrum. Since starting preschool, I’ve now had three long, agonizing school years to become acquainted with the […]

Vlog 2: Countdown To The ASD Screening!

The big day is almost here! Well, actually, the “big day” has come and gone, but I posted this video last week. We are counting down the hours until Micah goes for his ASD (autism spectrum disorder) screening. I’m pretty nervous. After years of meltdowns, tantrums, screaming, frustration, embarrassment, and just overwhelming feelings of failure, […]

Vlog 1: Mama’s Meltdown – I Finally Broke

Our blog has been bare, but our life has been anything but quiet. Since Micah started preschool, he’s had severe behavioral problems in class.  I’ve received phone call after phone call; been to meeting after meeting; and have read and signed note after note. His kindergarten teacher and a counselor that I didn’t particularly care […]

Real Love Poetry

When my days get dark and nights so bleak, you love me through it. When my words get harsh and I lose myself, you love me through it. The times I deserve very much less, you love me through it. No words on this earth truly describe what it means to have YOU loving me […]
