I have had a lot of trouble with chronic illness in the last 5 years. My snarl of issues and diagnosis is what I'm going to call FADI: fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. FADI causes me to struggle, but this weekend was a major win and a turning point towards a more normal pattern (at least for the next few months).
Hard to believe, but I grew up with dogs as pets, not cats. I'm not just a crazy cat lady. I will love and try to protect just about any animal that is fuzzy and cute. I'm pretty much the real-life version of Elmyra from Tiny Toon Adventures.
I am built for efficiency, not showroom quality looks. But I also don't want to wind up looking like Chris Farley. My adventure in short-hair land starts today.
