When Self-Care Isn’t

I was listening to a podcast the other day in which one of the hosts said something that stuck with me: “Sitting in my room and blocking out the world for days feels like self-care in the moment, but I’ve learned that it’s not actually good for me.” Hello, that’s me! I think that self-care is really important,…

Spoon Theory

Today is Monday, but I’m not feeling very motivated. Here in Nashville, it’s rainy & windy, and despite the sun’s best efforts to shine through the rain, it feels gloomy to me. I just want to curl up under my blankets and watch Murder, She Wrote all day. But it’s the 4th of July, and I’ve already missed…

A Regular Mrs. Bennet

Josh was in New York City for a couple days with Jordan for a video that YouTube invited Blimey Cow to be a part of. They got to do a little sightseeing, eat a little food, unexpectedly meet a friend from twitter – it was a really cool experience for them! They got home today,…

Disappointed

Still feeling bleh today. The pain is pretty mild compared to my last flare-up, but it is certainly discouraging. I’ve been feeling so great lately.. so it’s disappointing to feel like I’ve taken a step back health-wise. I keep reminding myself that this is just part of the healing process. My current situation is not…

Avocado & Sauerkraut

According to wordpress, this is my 100th post on CurrentlyKelli! LOOK AT ME! I am pleased with myself for making it work this long. On Fridays I share my favorite photo I took from the week, but the only photo I took this week is this one: I like the colors! I was eager to share…

Everything Hurts

I planned to do a Q&A blog post or video for today’s post, but I woke up feeling pretty awful so I decided to postpone that until next weekend. My pain has improved as the day has progressed, but still – ooph. Everything hurts. For that reason (among others), today has been kinda sucky. Shoutout to commenter…

Over It

I was starting to feel a lot better earlier this week; I even spent more time out of bed and had enough energy to do some small chores around the house, but today i feel pretty awful again. So that’s cool! 🙄 I don’t feel like writing much today, but I hope everyone is having a…

Dangerous Business

Today, I left my house for the first time in three weeks! Hallelujah! Josh and I ventured out to meet my family for lunch nearby (and, omg, it was so good to see them). I was nervous that I’d feel poorly, but other than some anxiety-nausea on the drive over, and a little stomach pain during lunch,…

If I Had 3 Wishes…

If I found an old lamp in the attic and a genie popped out with the promise to grant me three wishes, I would have a really difficult time deciding what to ask for. That’s a lot of pressure! How could a person pass up the opportunity to rid the world of violence? Or starvation? Or TAXES?…
