Wolf’s Rain Inspired

I was first introduced to Wolf’s Rain in 2008 and became enraptured by it. I loved the characters and their dynamic and the story was so touching and so heart-wrenching at times that I was brought to tears – sometimes slow and sweet sometimes hard and desperate. Always, I loved them. I’ve done a paintingContinue reading “Wolf’s Rain Inspired”

Consult Button on Etsy

When I started taking action against my Cushing’s Disease, I stopped doing the artistic hobbies I once enjoyed. And to be completely honest, I may have stopped long before that. I stopped drawing. I stopped painting. I stopped making jewelry. I stopped everything. I even stopped singing. I didn’t sing again until after the surgery,Continue reading “Consult Button on Etsy”

Films: The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

November 2008 was when The Boy in the Striped Pajamas was released, and I only just saw it yesterday. What a fool I was to have missed this film until now. Remember my post on how music makes a film? Well, once again, James Horner touched my soul; rendering me speechless and heart-broken. This filmContinue reading “Films: The Boy in the Striped Pajamas”

Cushing’s Recovery: Skin Products 2

Sadly, the original product plan didn’t work. After one month, my skin was worse: rashes and additional breakouts. I still think that Drunk Elephant is a good brand, but it’s just not right for me.  I’ve been doing some intense research on what possible products I could switch to. Lucky for me, there is aContinue reading “Cushing’s Recovery: Skin Products 2”

Cushing’s Recovery: Skin Products

Remember at the end of yesterday’s post?When I noted which products I’m using? FORGET ABOUT THEM. Those products are BAD.They have a pH level of 9.(You should only use 5.5 to 6.5) Instead, I have new products to try, and it’s all thanks to Melissa at Sephora. I swear, I don’t know how I gotContinue reading “Cushing’s Recovery: Skin Products”

Spironolactone: does it help?

The following is highly embarrassing for me, but I want others to hopefully learn about this drug and what it did to me. Note, not all bodies have the same reactions, so what I experienced could be different from someone else. See the post by Claire Carusillo, who’s life was improved by Spironolactone, for anContinue reading “Spironolactone: does it help?”

Post Brain Surgery, What to Expect

Even now, over a month after my surgery on Oct 10 2018, I still struggle to focus – which is why I haven’t posted anything.  But, I think I’ve been on radio silence for too long. First, if you haven’t guessed, I survived the surgery. Second, none of my brain goo came out, and theContinue reading “Post Brain Surgery, What to Expect”

Who’s the Boss: Disease or Me?

Let’s play “who’s the boss: disease or me?” There are things happening to me that terrify me. I lost the battle for my body – as my weight continues to climb – and I accepted this… … but then, the battle for my hair began. On Monday, September 3, 2018, I took my regularly scheduled morningContinue reading “Who’s the Boss: Disease or Me?”

OST Obsession

I believe that when a movie is able to match its soundtrack to its scenes so perfectly that it brings the audience to a state of reverence, that movie is a success. The first time this happened for me was when I saw Bring It On. How could this be, you ask? How could aContinue reading “OST Obsession”

Cushing’s Disease and Me

I have had a hard journey with my body, and my journey is not even close to being over. I am not afraid, but I want this opportunity to tell women about this disease, and how important it is to not give up on your body, to not give up on yourself. In November ofContinue reading “Cushing’s Disease and Me”
