    Thank you! I'm getting better. No sore throat anymore and minimal congestion. I'm still exhausted, though, and I know it will take time to rebuild my energy. Blargh. One day at time, like anything else.

    Much love to everyone who is struggling through the holiday season.

    Started off Dec 23 thinking I was having a heart attack (literally). Went to ER and thankfully no heart attack, but some unexplained symptoms. Major emergency stuff ruled out so that's good. It was pretty scary though. I'm not one to rush to the ER. The rest of the holidays was a whirlwind of family. It was pretty good overall. My son has been sleeping int until 7am which has been lovely (he's usually up at 6). Had bloodwork today to try to narrow down what might be going on with me, although I seem to be symptom free now. Perhaps I was fighting off a very weird virus.

    happy holidays everyone. I'm so sorry for those of you suffering. I wish you all happiness!

    ^WoW! It's good to hear that all major stuff was ruled out. I'm glad your symptom free now! Hopefully it was just a weird virus.


    I once thought I was having a heart attack, literally. I could feel my heart beating irregularly. I was vomiting and so nauseated. I was very, very scared. Turns out I had an electrolyte imbalance.

    My uncle didn't pass away until yesterday. Nobody really knows how he stayed alive past the 25th. He hadn't had anything to eat or drink in four days on the 25th. I spoke to my grandma on the phone last night. She seems to be doing OK given the circumstances.


    to everyone. We are almost through it!

    Bumping early because my family is so fucked this year I’m boycotting thanksgiving too.

    What I really want for xmas: early apologies for this years trangressions so I can at least quell the anger and resentment enough to force a fake smile for six hours.

    Our holidays have been getting more and more lowkey with each passing year. This time around it'll just be me, my parents, and my grandparents. I think it makes my mom sad. She was hoping for grandkids to spoil but my sister and I have no plans to do that any time soon. I welcome the quiet simplicity all -- she seems to forget all the drama that surrounded holidays when dozens of family members showed up.

    ahhh. the commercialization of x-mas is upon us. UK's popular YouTube fashion and beauty guru Zoella released a 12 day advent calendar for £50 which was greeted with much criticism.http://mashable.com/2017/11/15/zoell.../#Qu78QKWXhPqu. the fabulous Jamie Pine made a hilarious reaction video.



    Due to all the backlash, retailer Boots subsequently slashed the price of the calendar in half.
