My photos are moving for a third time…

Please be patient as my photos may disappear.
I moved them from flickr to photobucket for personal reasons, now I’m moving them from photobucket to imgur because photobucket is an ass company that’s making ‘ransom demands’ for our photos.

Even if I had the money to pay them to use their site as a photo hosting site, I wouldn’t because 1) they are trying to charge FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS per YEAR, and 2) I don’t think they’ll be around much longer because everyone is pissed.

Edit: You know what… I’m starting a new flickr account for my blog. I like flickr, even if I do have issues with them and their owners as a whole. At least I know how it all works, and that I can do things the way I want to there.


I’m unstable. I hate those words. Actually, I don’t know if they are accurate after talking to one of the clinicians at my mental health place. I seem to be having a good mood night (maybe too good? not sure), but I’m also feeling down… the guess is that I am anxious.

There’s a lot going on right now, plus I’ve had a LOT of caffeine in the last 48 hours due to the migraine I had. Caffeine can cause anxiety for me on it’s own, but mix in the fact that I’m dealing with some things that cause me anxiety currently, and trying to process some things from being so sick… it makes sense that I’d be anxious.

I think if I don’t get too caught up in stuff I will go to bed early tonight. I have an hour until I feel comfortable doing that as I don’t like taking my meds way off schedule.

Anyway… Here’s a picture I took (and edited) several years ago. I feel like sharing it tonight.


Lupus in pictures

I’ve been underweight, I’ve been overweight. I’ve been in the hospital, I’ve been home. I’ve had rashes, I’ve had to wear joint wraps and braces. I’ve been in kidney failure … though what exactly caused that – the lupus treatment, the c. diff I ended up with from the antibiotics I was on due to the infections I got from the lack of immune system from the lupus treatment, or the lupus itself… that’s up for debate still, I think. (I need to ask my nephrologist.)

Anyway, here’s a collage of some of my pictures that show my battle with lupus.
