When Dreams Collide

We interrupt this chronic illness blog for a word from our sponsor: humor.  Something happened recently that I thought you all would get a kick out of because it’s both weird and funny. So the other night I dreamed that my dh, children and I drove to some huge mall I didn’t recognize in an […]

Doctor Protocol 3.0

Apparently, there is a new Dr protocol for appointments I was somehow blissfully unaware of until recently.  As this is the 21st Century, I’ll put it in terms our kids would understand.  It’s Doctor Protocol 3.0.  It’s the operating system for doctors of the information age…or should I say non information age.  It’s where you […]

Valentine’s Special Offer

This week I’d like to share something special with you. It’s a bit off topic, but important.  I usually don’t post my business stuff on here, but this is the most important topic I could share the week of Valentine’s Day.  If’ you’ve followed me for a while here at JoJoisms, you know that one […]

Joy isn’t happiness…or is it?

In the MANY years I’ve been struggling with chronic illness and other chronic issues, I can’t count the number of times Christians have told me “this too shall pass.”  Unfortunately, it may not pass in my lifetime.  I’ve also been told that though there is weeping in the night that joy comes in the morning.  Unfortunately, […]

Ringing in 2016

Last year, the evil year, was a black spot in Tabares family history.  While I don’t normally celebrate New Year’s Eve, I made a special exception for this one because 2016 HAS to be better than the year that shall not be named! I planned on staying up this year, you know, just to make sure […]

State of My Union Address

My governing body had declared my right arm a disaster area after the last State of the Union address in which it was found that the pain level had reached Def Con 5.  That way I could qualify for some relief!  And it looks like I got it! This week’s members of my governing body have […]

JoJo’s Year in Review

In January of this year, after successfully unsubscribing from the Crisis a Month Club of 2014, we began The Year That Shall Not Be Named with hope for the future.  We were getting ready for our daughter’s wedding in June and I was beginning to feel a bit better since finding a dr who understood chronic […]
