Hello my Zebras and Spoonies! Thanks for coming and hanging out with me today, I’m glad that you are here. Today I want to talk about psychotherapy for pain management. This is an often hot topic in the support groups that I’m a part of. For reasons that I am all too familiar with, the knee jerk response to getting a referral to a therapist is that we are being dismissed. However, that might not be the case and there is research to support the use of therapy for those with chronic illness. So, let’s get it into!Continue reading “Therapy for Chronic Illness”
Hello my Zebras and Spoonies! Thanks for coming and hanging out with me today, I’m glad that you are here. Today I am going to be talking about my experiences with Endometriosis as an installment in the “My Diagnosis” series. It has been a while since I made a post in this series, but there are several more that I plan on writing. Other things have been filling my mind and thus I have been posting about those rather then about my experiences with my various diagnoses.
Trigger Warning: This post is going to be focusing on the menstrual cycle and pelvic pain. I will be going into detail which some will consider to be graphic. I am aware that discussion of these topics can make some people uncomfortable. If you are one of those people, then this post is not for you.Continue reading “My Endometriosis?”
Hello my Zebras and Spoonies! Thanks for coming and hanging out with me today, I’m glad that you are here. Today, I’m going to be talking about bras. If you aren’t among the bra wearing folk, feel free to take a stroll or you can pull up a chair and get a better idea what goes on with other folks’ clothes. The thing is that bras are notorious for causing problems and those of us with chronic illness are often more prone to having those issues. So, let’s talk about some of the problems that bras cause and what you can do about it.
WARNING: This post is going to be talking about undergarments, breasts and the ways those things can make us feel.Continue reading “Let’s Talk About Bras!”
Hello my zebras and spoonies! Thanks for coming and visiting me today. I am glad that you’re here.
Well, I skipped on recording yesterday and didn’t do any posting yesterday because I had no spoons. I went and crashed out for like 14 hours and I’m feeling a little bit better today. It’s amazing how much sleep can make a difference for me sometimes. And then other times it’s like I can sleep all I want and I still feel exhausted. Yeah. It’s like playing Russian roulette when I go to sleep. Sometimes I’ll sleep 10 minutes and feel great. Sometimes I sleep 10 hours feel great. Sometimes I sleep those same amounts of times and feel like crap. You just never know.Continue reading “Update 011822”

Music is a core part of all of humanity. Every culture across the globe has some kind of music. All of humanity: we sing and we dance and we make musical instruments. We do this by ourselves. We do this as groups. We do this in times of celebration. We do this in times of stress. We have been making music for as long as we have been documenting history and evidence suggests that we have been doing the making of music before we have been writing. So this suggests that there’s something really essential, profound and powerful about music, which is why so many people research it, because we ask this question of “why music?” What is it about music, that’s so important that every human being on the planet, engages with music, on some level? Whether you are a performer or you’re just somebody who is listening. Whether you’re singing in the shower or tapping on the table to a song in your head. We all engage in the creation and listening and sharing of music. Why is that?Continue reading “The Power of Music”
