I'm Back!

Saturday, October 24, 2015
I've been meaning to post for a while now, specifically at my one year anniversary of no longer blogging, but life has been overwhelming, and I'm honestly a little bit afraid of being judged for a couple things I've got to update you all on. Anyway, like I've said a thousand times before (even though you can't see now, as I've turned every post prior into a draft), this is my blog and I'll write from my heart as I please. ♥

Some news:

1. I'm divorced.
2. My fibromyalgia has been pretty bad, specifically my chronic fatigue. I'm constantly sleeping, constantly having to deny plans with friends, constantly zoning out mid-text conversation and falling asleep. It's irritating and makes me feel so boring.
3. In March of this year, March 21st to be exact, I got baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! Best day of my entire life!!! I can't tell you how happy I am, how proud of my testimony I am, how Heavenly Father has shown Himself to be so faithful time and again, and how amazing it is to be a member! I am so grateful and so thankful! I am a Mormon! (One of these days I'll be posting my testimony.)

I also have a new job; I'm a medical receptionist and physical therapist assistant for a functional neurologist! It's going well. To be honest, I'm strongly considering moving to Utah this winter, and am going to visit in two weeks which should give me a solid idea of what I should do - I'm excited! Nervous for life changes, as always; taking Heavenly Father's words to heart, not to "run faster than I am able." Well, I've had a migraine for 8 days now and just popped a muscle relaxer, and that's kicking in, so I'm going to take a nap! Have a happy Saturday and I can't wait to blog more, and hear back from you all soon! xoxo

One thing that will not be tolerated no matter what is online bullying in the comments. If you don't agree with something from my life, get over it. Don't tell me about it. Don't give me crap about it. Just leave me alone and move on. The world is ugly and dark enough without your two cents.

Thank you! I've missed you all so much!
