A lupus blog…

Let’s hear it for the boy(s)!

If you frequent my blog, you know that the titles of all the posts are song lyrics, an idea I shamelessly stole from my sister, Brie. Writing was never my strong suit (science nerd since birth, here) and the thought of trying to come up with a pithy title for each post frightened me. Plus, having “Go fuck yourself, lupus” … Continue reading

PSA- Purple Service Announcement

Hey kids! In cased you missed it on the 9 million other posts I’ve put on the interwebs over the last few days, Friday, May 20th is Put On Purple Day for Lupus Awareness! Dig through your drawers and find something purple to wear. Paint your nails plum. Wear purple panties. Have your kids’ orthodontist put purple rubber bands on … Continue reading

It’s Never Lupus

Before my diagnosis, I didn’t know too much about lupus. In nursing school, I think lupus was mentioned once during a medical-surgical lesson, and the only thing that was drilled into our brains was that majority of patients present with the malar rash. Note- When I sat for my nursing boards, there was a question on lupus. But as I … Continue reading

Take these broken wings and learn to fly…

You know that inevitable question during a job interview, “So tell me where you see yourself in 5 years?” I detest that question, and I always seem to find myself scrambling my brain to come up with an adequate response because I’m certain “hopefully still employed and not smoking crack in some dark alley,” would no doubt be frowned upon. … Continue reading

Nimble, the one finger package opener

Chronic illnesses suck. Yep, there I said it. Every morning I wake up with aches and pains that I never thought I’d be dealing with until I was well into my seventies. And as my achy ass trudges down into the kitchen every morning, bleary eyed, hands throbbing, I stumble to the Keurig to make some liquid gold (read: coffee). … Continue reading

Hello? Is it me you’re looking for?

I know, I know, several weeks between posts is terrible. I’ve been going through a lot personally, and the blog of mine has been on the back burner. I’m OK, and sorry to be vague, just dealing with some tough stuff… I’ll bounce back as always. On a happy note, I’ve FINALLY graduated to seeing the Physician’s Assistant at McDicky’s … Continue reading

MedNexus for Patients- Google without the guesswork…

Even with my three nursing degrees and wealth of reputable medical knowledge, I consider myself to be a graduate of the Google University School of Medicine. Oh, you know many graduates of the prestigious school; we are the ones who say “I know what that rash is, I Googled it.” “You better see the doctor for that, Google said it … Continue reading

This could be Heaven or this could be Hell…

  Since the beginning of 2016, the entertainment industry has been hit hard with the deaths of some of its most influential stars. It began with the death of David Bowie, music legend extraordinaire. While I wouldn’t call myself a die-hard Bowie fan, I always appreciated the influence he had over music for many decades. Soon after, Harry Potter and Die … Continue reading

Big time, I’m on my way I’m making it…

You know that feeling after a fantastic first date, when you find exactly what you are looking for in your size, or a colleague you respect gives you praise? Best feeling in the world. That’s basically how I felt after driving home from the ePatient Connections Conference in Philadelphia a few weeks ago back in October. Yes, I am REALLY delayed getting … Continue reading

The Magical Mystery Tour…

Hello Loves! Just a quick update because I’ve gotten a few people reaching out wondering the outcome of the cardiac catheterization. I had it done on December 30th at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. It’s always comforting when I have the chance to have procedures/tests done there, I feel like I am in the best hands and trust my medical … Continue reading
