Autoimmune Complications

Standard

I’ve never shared this before. This is incredibly personal and vulnerable.

IBDs (inflammatory bowel diseases) are “invisible diseases.” You can’t see the disaster that is taking place on the inside of body with the naked eye.

However, what people don’t realize is that there are many things that come along with these diseases, manifestations, that CAN be seen with the naked eye. For example, for the last ten years, my back has been constantly “breaking out.” It itches, it hurts, it’s embarrassing, it’s not attractive (in my eyes) in the slightest and now, my chest is starting to do it.

Autoimmune diseases effect way more than the “official diagnosis.” This is just one example and this link here https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3273725/ is great for additional information regarding skin manifestations with IBDs.

Marriage Battles

Standard

I’m referring to “battles” loosely!

Okay, Doug likes certain things one way & I like them a different way. Now, we could be cray-cray & fight over nothing, but instead, we make it a game!

Examples: He likes the paper towels to roll one way & I like them the other way. It’s the same with toilet paper. Hey… keeping it real! Instead of fighting over something so small & insignificant, we just change it to how we like it! Naturally, we come back to find that the other one has changed it again, haha, so it becomes a FUN battle!

The shower head. I’m super short with some super funky hair. I need the strongest water pressure which means I need the shower head facing straight down (as much possible). Doug is eight inches taller than I am. He can’t even fot under it when I adjust it. 🙈

The bedroom fan. I HAVE to have air moving. I can’t do stale air. Doug doesn’t like the fan on because he gets cold. I’m in menopause (not really) & have been since steroids. My inner thermometer is ALL messed up & I hate heat even more than I did before steroids & let me tell you, it’s been a FIERCE hatred! He turns it off thinking I wouldn’t notice just so I can turn it back on!

Volume. I am very OCD about numbers. I don’t like even numbers. I don’t know why, but it is what it is. He’ll purposely change the volume number on the T.V. just to mess with me!

Letters. I painted a “K” & a “D,” & they sit in the kitchen window. I like them in the order with the K first, duh! Doug will switch them when I’m not looking just to have me switch them back!

The last word. Oh my goodness, ah! LOL Each of us keep going until the other gives up! It can be as silly as, “the sky blue.”
“Not uh. It’s periwinkle.”
“It’s Robin’s Egg blue.”
“Periwinkle.”
“Robin’s.”

And on & on & on!

These are just a few examples. But for real, marriage doesn’t have to be hard. We do everything to make it fun! 😘

I’m Going to Hell

Standard

May I please get some virtual high-fives? Not only do I feel like the south end of a donkey, but a lady at the gas station told me I’m going to hell because I’m wearing a Harry Potter shirt.
She was buying booze & lottery tickets. I didn’t even notice until she said something to me about my shirt. I couldn’t care less about what she is doing.
Not only did I hold my tongue (HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT FOR ME), but I actually laughed & simply said, “I’ll meet you there.” The lady said I was probably right.
WHAT IN THE WORLD?! Was she drunk already? Haha! The cashier busted out laughing (a girl probably a little younger than I am, I guess). She said she would meet us there too because she loves Harry Potter!
😂🙈

P.S. NOT THE FIRST PERSON TO TELL ME THIS!
