July 21 – 10 Years 1015

10 years ago today, we stood in front of family & friends overlooking the river and became husband and wife. Oh how life has changed since then! We have been challenged in ways we could never have considered. Less than a year after our vows, I became bedridden and our journey to find help was…

Update – Prolotherapy #2

Yesterday we went back to barefoot beach and then saw Thor: Love and Thunder (good - big oh so cheesy!). I’m so grateful for days like that - where I can get out of the house and have some fun! There’s not been a lot of long days like this. And this one was pretty…

9 Years of Hope

9 years ago today, I went to the ER with such severe back pain that I couldn’t walk, couldn’t sit, and the 2 rounds of IV pain meds they gave me barely took the edge off. Since that day - I’ve been disabled. I spent the next 9 months begging doctors for answers. I’ve been…

What A Difference A Day Makes

Yesterday was an amazing day. We spent a lot of time in the Word and talking about life and what’s happening in our world. And then we drove to Barefoot Beach, which is in the middle of a nature preserve (watch out for turtles). I’m not saying I was so full of energy I could…

Humidity & Current Symptoms

A few years back, Dave and I spent a week on Kauai. It was huuuuumid! My pain dissipated. We came home and boom - pain high. Every time I’ve been somewhere with humidity, my pain drops - not gone, but bearable. The last several days have been high humidity - and it’s been great. Today…

Cellular Healing – 5 Weeks

I’ve been doing the Pompa program for 5 weeks. I really didn’t notice much the first couple of weeks - I had a hard time with the supplements initially so I backed off and then upped them slowly. How do I feel? Well - my digestive system has stabilized for the most part, I have…

The Good, The Bad and the Hated

On the most recent episode of New Amsterdam, one doctor asks, “When did things change? A year ago we were heroes. How did we become so hated?” As someone who has been injured by the medical community at large, let me answer that question. First, we don’t hate you. But we are angry. We are…

Never Give Up on Your Dreams

I saw this post this morning and it sure hit home! Digging my way through sickness has been so hard at times that I’ve wanted to just stop fighting. But what does that mean? Do I just lay in bed and whither away? Would that be easier? No - I’d still be sick! I’d still…
