I Can’t Prove I’m Me!

Over the last month, Facebook has demanded that I prove I’m me in order to allow me to continue to post on my For the Love of Purple Facebook fan page I’ve had for almost 10 years. I have almost 9300 fans over there who miss my purple posts. In fact, the number went up […]

What’s the strangest question you’ve ever been asked?

Believe it or not, the reason I ask is that I have two! The longer I live, the more I realize just how complicated life has become to the point where we are regularly asked questions I never in my wildest dreams would consider having to answer when I was young…you know, last century. The […]

I’m taking a blog hiatus

Just a quick note to let you know that I’ll be taking some time off from my blogs and newsletter for the next several months while I concentrate on my health and a project my husband and I are working on together. I recently added a few new diagnoses to the growing list. Last year […]

What’s in YOUR Bra? A TSA Tale

Apparently, a 56-year-old, 5′ nuthin’ woman with Fibro and Essential Tremors is a threat to national security! But don’t worry…TSA THOROUGHLY investigated me. Don’t you all feel safer now?! Out of hundreds of would-be passengers in the San Fransisco TSA line, they singled ME out. After having taken my shoes and sweater off, put my […]

Seeing the Humor in Struggles

2018 wasn’t the year I thought it would be.  I thought my husband would have a permanent job by now. I thought I had handled my insomnia, my Fibro, was done with surgeries, and wouldn’t have anything new until I was old.  Well, oldER. But I was wrong. Have you ever had so many weirdly […]

At the age when doctors ask odd questions

I can’t believe it’s October 2018 already! Wasn’t it just June…1997? You know you’re getting older when the decades fly by.  But seriously, life has changed a whole bunch since I began this blog and since I began writing JoJoisms so many years ago.

I’m not worried about death…

I’ve seen a lot of social media posts telling believers with chronic health issues to just think positive and remember that we’re going to heaven one day.  I’m sure they mean well, but I’m also sure those that write these haven’t experienced chronic health trails.  They tell me to ignore the present and look to […]
