Anxiety, travel, and choosing love.

Narcolepsy: my complicated and invisible disorder

Ignorance is bliss One of my first exposures to understanding narcolepsy was a Youtube video of a dog with narcolepsy. The video shows the dog experiencing loss of muscle of control and inaccurately describes the symptom as an inability to stay awake at any given […]

We all have pet peeve sins that get under our skin and make us itch. Jon, my husband, and I have different pet peeve sins – something we’ve known about each other for a while. I hate arrogance and dishonesty in all forms, and I […]
