Just wanted to drop in and say hello to my lovely LJers. I know I haven't been around. I haven't been online much anyway, but when I am it's usually Twitter or Tumblr.

I have also suddenly developed a seizure condition so I've been in and out of doctor's appointments and hospitals.

But I love you guys! I hope you're all doing well.

Just wanted to check in and say hello.

Been a rough few months. Struggling with medical stuff of course and revisiting my battle with anxiety and depression. I think my doctor and I might have found the right medication cocktail for that anyway.

Always having trouble sleeping though, hence my writing right now.

So yeah, just wanted to say hello to you all. Sorry I haven't been around much. Ive sorta switched over to Tumblr.

Hope you're all doing well.

R.I.P. Michael




smile though your heart is aching
smile, even though it’s breaking
when there are clouds in the sky
...you’ll get by…

if you smile
with your fear and sorrow
smile and maybe tomorrow
you’ll find that life is still worthwhile
...if you just…

light up your face with gladness
hide every trace of sadness
although a tear may be ever so near
that’s the time you must keep on trying
smile, what’s the use of crying?
you’ll find that life is still worthwhile
...if you just…

So I have a pair of Doc Marten boots that have never been worn. They've been collecting dust on my floor for more than a year now.

When I bought them, I thought I loved them. Then I tried them on (only time they were ever worn) and didn't love them anymore. They just weren't quite the same as the pair I had like 15 years ago. So I put them away and said to myself "I'll wear them eventually" instead of just returning them immediately. Needless to say it never happened.

So yeah, they're brand new. And I thought I would see if anyone is interested in buying them.

PICTURES IN HERECollapse )

The camera makes the color appear a little funky but they're dark red/maroon. Size UK 8, US 10 but they run a little small because I'm more like a 9.

With shipping I paid like $130 for them but I'd be willing to take $70 including shipping. Or we can certainly negotiate something reasonable.

Take a peek or pass it on to someone who might be interested. Thanks!

I have THE worst abdominal, pelvic, and lower back pain. But my OB/GYN actually doesn't think it's related to my Endometriosis.

So WTF is it then?

He thinks maybe I should see a Urologist who may decide I should get a cystoscopy. Yeah, sounds fun! And if I reach a dead end there then maybe I should go in a GI direction.

I mean something is causing major discomfort and sometimes extremely sharp pains.

He just does want to consider a 2nd laparoscopy unless other things are ruled out first. There's also the option of trying Lupron which I'm not a huge fan of.

But I know something is up. I'm just tired and frustrated.

Oh and to top it off, I have 2 days to make a decision about my job. STRESS.

I'm sad about my Red Sox. :(

But congrats to the Rays, really. They played great this year and I give credit where credit is due.

midorisour gave me J!

You know how it goes. Comment, and I'll give you a letter. Then you'll have to list ten things you love that begin with said letter. Post your list in your LiveJournal, and give out some letters of your own.

1. Jon Bon Jovi
I don't really need to explain this one, do I?


2. Johnny Depp
He's been my favorite actor since I was pretty young and I saw Edward Scissorhands. Since then, no one's ever really been able to compare.


3. Jonathan Rhys Meyers
One of my favorite movies is Velvet Goldmine, which is when I first saw him. I especially loved him when he did a lot of weird, underground roles. I think he is unbelievably gorgeous. Those eyes are amazing. I'm totally addicted to The Tudors because of him.


4. Jem and the Holograms
One of my favorite things as a child. It's like one of those little kid things that I've never really let go of. All of my friends will still buy stuff for me off of Ebay and whatever because I love Jem so much.

5. Jay Leno
What can I say? I love the man. I used to look forward to watching his show every night. Unfortunately, since I'm a big baby now, I hardly ever stay up late enough to watch it anymore. But it was just one of those things that always made me smile. Usually I would just stay up through the first 25 minutes then pass out but it seems I can hardly ever even do that anymore. I'll be devastated when he leaves next year. :(

6. Jordan and Jonathan Knight
Yeah, I'm a NEW KIDS girl -- WHAT OF IT?! ;)

7. Jonathan Papelbon
I'm a huge Red Sox fan and he's my favorite player on the team. He's a bit of a crazy bastard and those are usually the ones that stand out to me, haha.

8. Jewelry
No, I don't mean that in a really shallow way. I'm all for cheap stuff. I just like to wear extra stuff all the time. I think outfits alone are boring so I'm one for wearing jewelry to jazz things up a little.

Hmmm....

I'll have to come back for #9 and #10....


EDIT: Also, a couple weeks ago I had talked about how I chopped my hair off. This is the only picture I really have but I figured I'd throw it in here:


(Margo, Me, Allison, Angie, and Niki.)

It doesn't really show the color. In person, you can see more of the red tones. Actually, they call it "cinnamon", haha. But as you can see, I'm no longer blonde and it's shorter than it's been in years! It's kinda weird actually but I needed a change.
