About Me

My photo
I'm a glass-half-full type of girl. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, grave's disease and celiac disease in 2010 and life-altering allergies in 2013. I believe having a positive attitude is the only way to live with dis-ease. I also believe that life doesn't have to be PERFECT for it to be WONDERFUL. Dis-ease is expensive, so I live a frugal yet healthy lifestyle. This is just my blog; my day-to-day story.

It's been a month.




Just wanted to let you know I am alive. I'm recovering from a surprise spinal cord injury repair surgery and have been unable to type for the last month. But I am recovering well! Will post a "real" post soon!

This is a photo of me in the recovery room following surgery, with a puffy face full of fluid. For the record, I have no recollection of this picture being taken. But I was told I was my usual, cheery self coming out of surgery!
