Hi everyone. You've stumbled upon what I hope you will eventually find to be  an interesting combination of wit, fangirling, and serious discussions. 
My name is Heather. I live in Sunny Florida with my parents, 2 hermit crabs and a sneaky guilt tripping cat named Sandy.

Within you will find things about my chronic condition known as Cerebral Palsy, Writing, Crafting, Reading, and various other types of hobbies as well as the occasional rant, review, or just general day to day stuff as I think of things.

Thoughts on Type 2 Diabetes

July 14, 2018
Some of you may or may not know, but I got diagnosed officially with Type 2 Diabetes recently. I've been struggling with the various components of this disease for years, and I knew it was inevitable because both my parents' parents had it, and a couple of my aunts have it already. Knowing all of...

    Tonight was Mom's birthday so we went to Hooters. I know, I know. Why would anyone want to go to Hooters? Well, in the early and late 90s, Mom was in a Nascar themed bowling league and a lot of the weekends were spent at Hooters watching said races.  So my brothers and I ended…

I had the big appointment with my incompetent doctors on Friday.  They're still not willing to admit that I'm Diabetic, but my mother took a look at the blood test results and the results from the Blood Glucose&he...

  • Ugh….
    July 2, 2018
    Okay, so the last couple of days have been so busy. I really need to make a point of writing before bed because sometimes I end up with thoughts that keep me awake. And that's not good because I really want to start getting up earlier and walking again. I was enjoying my walks. But…

  • An Early Morning or A very Late Night?
    June 28, 2018
    It's been a long time since I've been up this early. This time it is due to my bladder deciding that waiting till 6am (which is my preferred "early morning") is not an option. I guess that's what I get for drinking a soda between 6pm and bedtime last night.  Why did I do that?…

    Hey fellow writers and ODers. I have been really busy, and brewing things. There has always been a part of me that felt as though I was gipped in the education department because I was disabled and had to be put in Special Education instead of being allowed to take mainstream classes with a few&h...

  • Update from the Weekend.
    June 18, 2018
    It's been a few days since I wrote. I've been so busy. And also, the migraines were brutal last week. I hope I get some relief this week because I really want to  do things on Tuesday and possibly enjoy my Thursday library day. Yesterday was Father's Day, and it was really good one. My…
