Update: someone got hit because someone went down the one way street the wrong way.
And double dang.
I was nice and asleep and then got woken up by loudness people yelling and an altercation in front of our place.
Called the police because it was scary and thirty minutes later still nobody….
For the anon: I don’t use snapchat a lot :-/, I don’t have a kik but…
Forever looking for more lovely people to follow on instagram : weirdwildwonderful
I spend a lot of time on there because it’s easier energy wise
At the end of the pilot, Charlie says: “Everyone thinks that when you go to a hospital, life stops. But it’s just the opposite. Life starts.”
After hearing those words, I wanted to cry. Life does not start when you go to a hospital. If you’re lucky enough to have a non-terminal illness, life continues, in a warped version that includes more pain and obstacles than any young person should have to experience.
This article is so great. When these movies and shows underplay the physical aspects of illness - the fatigue, the pain, the way your current and future energy levels impact literally every decision - it makes it harder for sick folks like me to talk to the people around us about the realities of illness because we fear it will seem like we’re complaining.
To everyone who gave me advice! :) I really appreciate it and am absolutely grateful.
I am positive now that over a long period of time I will be able to lose weight. It’s just going to be very different for me than the average person but that’s okay!
In other news, I’m going to buy myself the olay pro x spin brush as a birthday present to myself. I’m hoping my couponing, store sale matchups, etc will help me get it under 20 bux at least! Money is forever tight but I’m hoping I can get this for myself.
I can’t believe I’ll be a year older come the 24th. My goodness, how much changes in a year…

Cw: talk of weight loss, weight, dieting
As most of you know I’m chronically ill (CFIDS & FM) and am not able to hit the gym, walk long distances, do cardio.
I am looking to lose some weight in hopes of having it POSSIBLY help some of my symptoms and if not, for it to at least be less weight for me to carry around while walking which may be a positive, energy conservation wise.
Have any of you lost weight without exercise? In a manner that is not unhealthy.
I already do not eat gluten, dairy or sugar as a regular diet to help my immune issues.
I’ve been looking in to portion control / watching calories but was wondering what kind of success folks have had?
Also, I’ve in the past made myself more ill / flare bad by trying to do traditional exercise. Before being ill I used to run, was an azteca dancer and hit the gym on the regular.
This is not a possibility for me now.
I conserve my physical exertion for things like laundry, grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning basically, things I need to do to survive.
I hope folks take all of the above in to consideration. I think most people can’t fanthom the reality of having to reserve energy and being laid out for some days.
