From Rumble 10/26/16

Hantu, a white German Shepherd, adopted Poncho, an orphaned baby opossum after animal rescuers found the infant opossum clinging to the side of his mother after she had been tragically hit by a car. The two now live together at the Rare Species Fund.

That Is Love

Standard

Inspirational QuoteWhat do I love about this inspirational quote? It is about all kinds of love: romantic, friendship, empathetic. Watching your child laugh and play can fill your heart. Your cat purring with contentment can do the same. A stranger dancing with joy at a concert makes you love the show all the more. When you can fill your life with love and happiness just by feeling it through another, you have won the love lottery.  ❤

Happy Thanksgiving!

Standard

Most of us are sitting around a table, sharing a festive meal with family and friends, enjoying each others company.

Today, I am welcoming a friend into my home and into my family. For this, I am thankful. Thankful for being able to do this for a woman whom I consider a sister and who has been there for me many a time. Thankful that, while I can help her, she is willing to help me as well. Thankful that she understands my illness and treats me the same as she always has – with love and respect.

 

Today, I give thanks for all of the understanding, love and support I receive from my family. The road I travel would be a lot more difficult without it.

Today, I give thanks to the people with ME/CFS, who are using the little bit of energy they have, and their supporters, to advocate for this invisible illness. Together we are fighting an uphill battle – one that has been made necessary by neglect and abuse from the medical community. I am thankful that I have enough energy to join the fight.

In fact, everyday I am thankful for all of the above and more.

Thank you for reading this blog!

Let’s Play Catch-Up!

Standard

Since the last time I blogged about myself, a lot of things have happened. I have been introduced to many new doctors and a few new tests. Thanks to Dr. Vera at NOVA, I am on some new medicines for ME and Fibromyalgia (which have practically gotten rid of my brain fog!) We are still experimenting with dosages to see if more improvement will be possible. (Fingers crossed!)

A dear friend who needs a place to stay will be moving in shortly. Lots of planning and packing going on between the two of us. Living in Florida will take some getting used to on her part. It took me two years to feel like I belonged here.

She will be arriving on Thanksgiving. The holidays will be particularly meaningful as we share the joy of being a family, as I consider her a sister. Very excited! (Also, can’t wait for her to see my jewelry studio!)

And speaking of jewelry…I have been keeping myself busy, designing and repairing pieces on commission. Here are pictures of some of my work…

New pair of earrings made to replace old earring with missing partner. Used Swarovski crystal, freshwater pearls and gold-filled chain.

Necklace made for opal and blue topaz pendant, supplied by client. My plan was to honor the pendant, not overwhelm it. Used agate, sterling silver beads, Japanese seed beads and Swarovski crystals. The client was trilled with the results and has ordered earrings to match.

 More pictures to come in the future.

As for my Kraftycat Creations Website, I am in the process of revamping – adding new, exciting products! This is a wonderful part of my life. I consider it therapy for a happier, healthier Fern. The “new and improved” Kraftycat Jewelry and Creations will be ready to view shortly.

A dear friend says goodbye…

Documenting M.E.

Dear Friends and Family,

This is a post I’ve been putting off for quite awhile. But I no longer have the luxury of putting it off anymore – not if I want it to get written. My personal journey with ME is near its end. A long time ago, after months of deliberation, I made the decision that if my digestive issues ever got to the point where I could no longer get or keep food down naturally, I would not seek life sustaining measures, but would allow the illness to play itself out naturally. I am at that point, and have been for awhile now.

Let me preface this by saying that none of this is a judgment on those severe ME patients who choose to take advantage of technology like nasogastric tubes, hydration IVs, etc in order to remain alive as long as possible. I believe this is…

Donna Roberts Says…

Standard

This is a special piece about true friendship…

The Romantologist

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.

Throughout life, we cycle through friends, for better or for worse. At points, we may take our friends for granted. It’s a challenge to truly appreciate these friends who always seem to be there for you. I advise you to do so, no matter how difficult it may be! Show love for these friends. As Roberts illustrates, friends do have the incredible power to remind you of the song in your heart. In difficult times, they will be there to support you. If you break, they will put the pieces together. Love your friends and keep them close, for it is a terrible feeling to be searching for friends who are no longer there.
