Saving Undies with U by Kotex


One of the biggest pet peeves of having pcos is never knowing what’s going on with my cycle. Having no rhyme or reason means my period can (and has) shown up with no warning, at the most inconvenient times. Many pairs of cute underwear have paid the price. So when Kotex offered to let me [...]



I started a new job this week. An outside-the-home, actually talk to other people face-to-face, with a regular paycheck kind of job. It’s the final requirement for the organization that helped me get a wheelchair accessible van. In the midst of starting training, I’m also finishing up the last month of my current online, contract [...]

It’s been so long since I’ve used this blog to talk about personal stuff, I honestly don’t even know where to begin. The last month has been really hard.
