Me today, I am barf on a stick.

The internal thermometer I have is broken.

Hot flash city!

I am thirty-two freaking years old!

It is not menopause.

It’s my sinuses.

I know the headaches well,

The crusted eyes.

And those hot flashes.

Since it’s not menopause,

Frankly even if it were,

I refuse to pause for it.


I am thirty-freaking-two.

Paper towel to blow nose ✔

Ice water to clear gunk as it drains ✔


Let’s do this.

Allergies be damned.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else.

I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
