Endo came in like a wrecking ball

Endo-flare is attacking me again…Almost as if the theme is “I came in like a wrecking ball.” Okay, so you know the music I am listening to while writing this post. But still, it is legit. This period week has been brutal. It started with a week before my period was supposed to begin. I…

Endo: Body Olympics

This month, it has been Olympic Games with my body. To a point I didn’t even realize (besides looking at the calendar) Endo was flaring until it knocked me on my ass…And even then, a calendar this month was not helpful. Today is Day 1 of my period…however, it is 4 days early… So, as…

2 nights in Emergency, severe weight loss & surgery news

This week has been a rough one. I started school on Tuesday. However, I was extremely sick that day. When I woke up I was throwing up bile for over 30 minutes. That made the rest of my morning go late. From there, I ended up missing my first class. I sat through my second…

Stress Ball: Constant anxiety

Now, those who have followed my posts for from the beginning. You’ll realize that I haven’t talked about mental health issues. There is a section on this website that is dedicated to mental health, however it’s not yet complete. I’ve never seen a psychologist or a psychiatrist. I have referrals from doctors who think I…

Biggest Fear lies ahead of me: Endo Surgery # 2 is in the picture

Doctors have been playing Ping-Pong with me. So…let’s start from the beginning shall we? In April 2015 I had surgery for Endo. That surgery did not go well…I was considered one in a million case as they were unable to get the camera open and then had to stop when my (low-blood pressure) kept dropping. After I…

Cycle of Eating Disorder Relapse

Summer is in full swing. Normally I should feel good right? Wrong. Something has been feeling off lately. And I finally placed what the “off” part was. For those who have been following my posts, you know I suffer from a binge eating disorder. If not, you can click here. At the end of the…

Living with concussion symptoms

    Concussions are one of the more dangerous, if not the most dangerous injury one can suffer. The reasons why are; A) Concussions can happen with a slight head whip to smashing your head into something. Both can cause it, whether the impact is light or severe… B) Once you’ve had a concussion, you…

Mandatory Vacation

Work, School, Skating, Social Life…A body can only take a tight schedule for so long before it starts breaking down. Once the break-down starts, good luck getting back to “normal”. …I know it has been a while since my last post. But I broke my body with over-scheduling and even though I am better, I…

Addiction to Pain Killers

  Every week I seem to have a theme happening with my posts. This week the theme I have jumped on was addiction. If you missed my other blog that I posted on Monday about the addiction to adrenaline, you can click here. After the adrenaline addiction post was added, I received an email asking:…

Adrenaline addiction resulting in temporary pain relief

Being an athlete is not always easy. Every sport is hard in their own way, however I can only talk as a figure skater since that is the only sport I have continued to do for 18 years and counting, (done: ballet/dance, swimming, field hockey, track and field-but none ever stuck). As you know from…

10 Years Living in Silence

Earlier today, I posted an article “Gym Training With a Broken Body“. Many have messaged me in regards to the nutrition section in the article. I had written that I have been suffering from a Binge Eating Disorder, and until very recently, it was behind locked doors for 10 years. The first dose of when…
