Operation Superstorm had to make an emergency detour, but we all made it -- and I'm so glad we did.
I lost my service dog this week. Storm is alive and somewhat well; I didn’t lose Stormlight, but I lost my service dog. I had to pull her from training yesterday permanently. All I can say is that this hurts. It all hurts, it aches, it squeezes my heart and I feel like if… Continue reading Square Negative-One
We’re Still Here
It's been a very, very busy month or two. Apologies to anyone who enjoyed reading the blog more regularly -- these past two months have involved a kidney infection (me) and a move (all of us!). It's been more than a little crazy with all this stuff going on at once, unsurprisingly. Quick news: The… Continue reading We’re Still Here
Independence Day, or: The Day When Dreams Came True

I've never had confidence in showing others anything I wrote; this blog is a huge departure for me and a bold move that I'm sure will at… Continue reading A Belated Explanation For Rambling To Follow
What’s In Your Medicine Cabinet?
I didn't realize until making the decision that I would benefit greatly from a service dog that my identity for these past few years has had a lot to do with invisible illness. I think that everyone else seemed to be making such a big deal of it and turning it into such an obstacle… Continue reading What’s In Your Medicine Cabinet?
The Calm In The Storm
Stormlight, Storm bright, Storm gets me through the night, wish I may, wish I might get this fucking process right. That's the version I find myself thinking more often than not lately. It used to be a sweet thing -- a mantra of sorts, a love poem to the perfect partner. It still is; I… Continue reading The Calm In The Storm
