#MyHealthJourney| False Acceptance & Denial

This will probably be the quickest blog post I will ever write up. But I think that also adds more importance to why the story must be told. I’ve been living a lie and I’ll be writing this post to explain it. My hope is that by doing so, others will know that it’s okay. A couple weeks ago, I was diagnosed with an Autoimmune Disease. It wasn’t until yesterday that I realized … Read More

mE Project| Knowing Your Limits

mE Project| Knowing Your Limits

You know what is really interesting about life? We are always learning and adapting the way we understand the events that happen around us. In this past week, there has been so much to happen so I thought this would be a good post to make.

So far with the mE Project, I’ve discussed becoming a healthier person and the positive ways to do that. But I don’t really think that we have dove … Read More

mE Project| Let’s End It With a Smile

Hi everyone, I hope you have not only a great day but a great week as well. Over the weekend, I started thinking about what I want to accomplish before the year is over and what good habits I want to start. And I’m not talking about New Year’s Resolutions. To be honest, I’ve never really understood the hype. Only the determined and dedicated stick them, most give up after a couple weeks. My goal is to incorporate some … Read More

mE Project| “Nana The Pot’s Burning!”

mE Project| “Nana The Pot’s Burning!”

The funny thing about life is that no amount of scheduling or planning can prepare you for when things go awry. My mother had this phrase her Nana taught her to say when she was little. She would say it if her Nana was on the phone and didn’t feel like talking or if she had reached her limit because her Nana wasn’t the type of woman to come out and say “I … Read More

mE Project| Mobility, Health & Me

Hello everyone, we’re back at the start of another week and the second week to the mE Project. I’m so happy that the feedback has been so wonderful.

I have been fighting a cold for a few days and it’s been taxing my energy.

Interestingly enough, today’s post is kind of … Read More

Spoonie Tips for Surviving Fall/Winter

 

Hi everyone, I hope you all have a great weekend. Today’s post is going to be a little bit different, but it still stays within the topics that I talk about on my blog. I admit that as much as I love this time of year, as the season starts to turn more towards winter it gets a little hard for me. The cold weather makes me ache and the lack of sun … Read More

#WhatTheHealth| The Illusion Of Social Media

I have a lot of ideas for posts that I want to do. But this one, I’ve wanted to write for some time. Shannon @GoingWithHappy made a blog post, Social Media Detoxing, and it helped remind me of this topic.


Before the idea of creating a blog entered my mind, I had stopped posting as much on my personal social media. My level of interest in it had become very low. I deleted Snapchat off my phone and closed … Read More

#WhatTheHealth| Bathtub 2 vs Me 0- Severe Ankle Sprain

I have this great talent of injuring myself in the weirdest ways. People always ask me, “Erika how did you do that?!” But the stories I have for my injuries are never that interesting, sometimes it’s just downright dumb. When my knee finally gave out, I was getting out of bed, nothing crazy. I will have to tell that story after this one because that one is quite complicated. Today, I’ll be telling the story of how my bathtub … Read More

#LifeInView| The Visionary Friend

How’s your vision? Would you say it’s quite good or would you say it was bad? If we were talking about literal eyesight than you wouldn’t want to depend on me for anything without my glasses because my vision is actually quite poor. But no, today we’re figuratively discussing our vision or how much or how well we pay attention to others.

The definition of the word visionary means to think about or plan the future with imagination or … Read More
