  • Why I’ve Been MIA

    Heyyyyy y’all!

    I know I’ve been missing for awhile. I’ve been feeling guilty about not posting and nervous to post.

    I originally started this blog to educate others on navigating the healthcare system. People loose hundreds and thousands of dollars just because no one takes the time to explain insurance, medications, when to go to the ER vs. urgent care, etc. And just because healthcare is complicated AF!

    This has kind of turned into my journal/dairy that incorporates my experiences that usually relate to healthcare in some way. Likely because I have so many chronic illness healthcare is a large portion of my life. Ugghh….I’m so tired of adding diagnosis to my health record. Which is the reason I’ve been MIA…..Let me explain.

    December 2021 I had an incident in which I was not in touch with reality. The entire day was a mess. I had a cycle of being tearful, angry, sad and confused. Sometimes I had these symptoms all at once. The story of that day will be told in another post. If I get the nerve to post it because it was pretty bad. Anyway….

    January 2021 I was so lucky to get diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Now known as bipolar spectrum disorder. And it’s been difficult y’all.

    I’ve been embarrassed and grieving the idea of normalcy. It’s been so many emotions. I literally spent the last several months going back and forth on what I should write about. But my new diagnosis was the only thing on my mind. I always want to be truthful to y’all and I didn’t want to come back with…Hey I’m bipolar.

    It’s been a journey. Dealing with a mood disorder as a mom of 3, one a special needs child, working full time, a wife and so may other things hasn’t been a walk in the park. Some days bipolar knocks me down. But I’ve never got knocked out so I stand back up and fight. And it’s a tough battle DAILY!!!

    I would love to go into more details on my symptoms, the day I knew it was more than depression, how I was diagnosed. But I’m tired, it’s almost 12 AM. If you are interested in hearing more. Check back in. Also, feel free to ask questions about bipolar disorder or my journey. My ig is @iambusybri

    I’ll be back soon. ✌🏽

  • Covid 19 Vaccine

    Hear me out….

    Honestly I didn’t want the Covid Vaccine. So I get it. But everybody in my house, got covid but me. My kids did well, other than my daughter can’t taste or smell some things. But my husband scared me.

    At one point it seemed like we were just wearing mask for fashion because nobody consistently had on a mask around me and I still didn’t get sick.

    We loss a few older family and family friends. But what hurts most is we just loss a 16 year old family member that was scheduled for the vaccine the day COVID took her from us. There is NOTHING available at the hospital or anywhere to treat covid, only the symptoms. So they can treat a fever, give you pain meds, oxygen etc. but the virus itself isn’t treated.

    The virus is living and just like all living things , the virus evolves to stay alive. People that are unvaccinated are helping this virus evolve . Especially since you can have the virus and be asymptotic. Each time it enters a host it learns something new.

    Please go get vaccinated!
