.:A Little About Me:.

Hello friends!  How is your day?  I hope it is filled with beautiful things.

I am seeing that there is a lot of new people here, and I just wanted to give a little bit of information about who I am; well, and some about what I do here.

First off, I need to explain that I am a very eclectic person.  I do a lot of stuff here.  I review products and places, movies and books.  Just anything that really tickles my fancy. I also like to give my advice about certain situations.  If you read back on some of my posts, I am sure that will be obvious.

You will also find that many times when I am sleepy (or sick) I will ramble and just put my thoughts out there. There are things that I feel that I could share about what is going on with me that might help others.

See, the thing is I’m sick. I have been for a long time.  I ended up with epilepsy when I was a baby after having an allergic reaction to the Pertussis part of the DtP vaccine. I have had seizures all my life, so please do not worry about me, or feel sorry. I am used to it.  I also have very severe Fibromyalgia. I hurt so bad sometimes that I cannot get out of bed, and walking has become a serious issue.  Something else about me is that I have every symptom of Multiple Sclerosis, but they cannot find the lesions.  It is a mess honestly. Due to this foolishness, it has brought on a case of depression that I cannot seem to shake.  Even though I have tried.

I am fully disabled and it breaks my heart.  That fixed income, while it keeps a roof over my family’s head, is just not enough to do the things that my children should be able to.  I should be working and here I am, 6 in the morning not able to sleep (AGAIN) and rambling.  I do love this time of morning though.  The world around you turns this beautiful shade of blue.  Everywhere you look, the color seeks you out and gives peace.

I want all of you to understand one thing, if you take anything at all.

A sickness doesn’t define who you are. How we approach our sickness is. If you cower with fear, you do not succeed. The battle is lost.  But if you stand up, look at it in the face and stand strong, you can and will grow stronger in the face of adversity.  You begin to learn things about yourself, about those around you.  And that too makes you stronger.

So, my lovely friends.  Stand Strong.  Follow your dreams and just live in a happy place.

I love all of you.

PS!  Review for a movie is coming out tomorrow!

.: Store Review – ShopMissA.com:.

Alright my lovely hooligans!  I am going to be reviewing a store and let me tell you, I am tickled pink to have found this one. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING is ONE DOLLAR.  Let me repeat that…. ONE FREAKIN’ DOLLAR.  What is this magickal place you say?

SHOPMISSA.COM

So let me get down to the business of ShopMissA.  They have so many awesome things.  Makeup, Jewelry, Hair Accessories, Random Accessories.  It is mind boggling.  And as I said before, it is all a dollar.

The site is set up very nicely, and the pages are easy to read.  The layout is interesting and involving and I do have to say, it is easy on the eyes.  Across the top of the first page is the menu, giving you the options of choosing a specific type of product or even a brand name.

They also have a certain button on the menu list that says, “FOMO” which means “Fear Of Missing Out.”  It gives you the opportunity to buy products in complete sets which are given a discount. It is a bit more expensive to do it that way, BUT is still worth it.  For instance, buy 10 lipsticks for 10 dollars OR buy the set for 9 dollars. It works like that. They are further separated into these hoolollies:

Cliques: This is a pack of your favorites all bundled into one.

Kits: This is an all-in-one kinda thing.

Oh Sh!t: This one is a giant pile of goodies that are just awesome.

Also if you spend over 300 USD (yeah, not happening in this house yo!) you are then added to the A-list.  The A-list is a loyalty program that gives opportunities to its members to buy special products still only for a dollar.

As for the shipping, I ended up spending 14 dollars (that was 14 products!) and only spent $3.95 for shipping.  Which in my opinion is pretty cheap.  But honestly, I done a bit of a test on that too.  I ended up filling up my cart with 19 things and it was still 3.95.  So yeah, it isn’t bad.  Also, if you spend $35 in one sitting there, you get free shipping to anywhere in the US.

Now…. For the downside.

Some of the products are unavailable or sold out.  If it is a popular item, it might be hard to get your hands on certain things.  You have to be quick on the draw to nail them, but it is well worth the wait.

So, my full opinion?

I think that ShopMissA.com is a great company to order from.  Their shipping was quick and easy.  The products themselves are amazing and definitely cheap. I do think that if the whole “sold out” thing was not so overwhelming that it would be even greater.

So  yes, I will be shopping there again, I will tell my friends about it and I give them 2 big thumbs up.

.:Product Reviews vs. Huge Haul Videos:.

Hey friends!  I do hope that all of you are doing well.  In my previous blog, I wrote about hauls and whatnot and how to not take the “overkill” to heart.  Yes, I still feel that showing off all this stuff that you bought is just beckoning others to feel bad about their inability to do so.

BUT a very nice person (keeping ya name quiet dear for privacy sake!) brought up a great point in a comment about how they watch “haul” videos for the sake of seeing how good a product is.  And I definitely agree with that.

I do also need to explain that I do not begrudge all the wholollies and whatsamajiggers that people are able to buy.  Hell, I am happy that they are able to.  They work  hard for the stuff so I can’t get mad about that.  The thing that really bothered me the other day is how all this stuff that a certain YouTuber bought came to over 1200 USD!  I know that many of us out here aren’t able to just willy nilly spend a small fortune on clothes and shoes, but want so much to be able to.  So many of us aren’t able to due to lack of work, disabilities, or just not able to cover immense amounts of things.  Hell to me, being able to buy a t-shirt is like a gift from Santa.

I just wanted all of you to know that, no matter what you have, no matter who you are, stuff isn’t important. Material things isn’t what makes you who you are.  It is you.  Your personality, your heart, your very soul makes you a wonderful and beautiful person.  And I LOVE you for that.

Just know that while I will be doing reviews of products, it isn’t to show off. It is only to give you the information that you need if you want to know about a product.  But it won’t be high dollar stuff. Just sayin.

Be you and Be True my friends.

L.

(P.S.  Got a review coming up for all of you of a product soon!)

Yes, it has been forever… I know.

I know that it has been a while since I have really updated this, or even really thought about it, but boy let me tell ya.  When the sky falls, it comes in an avalanche of foolishness and stupidity.

I don’t want to get into the whole “poor me” silliness, but bring to light something that I think a lot of us need to do.  In the process, I will explain the why’s.

Firstly, all of you need to make sure that you are paying attention to what your medical provider writes and says in their reports.  THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!  Many doctors offices/emergency service places will have a website that you can sign up to so you can look at the reports that have been written.  READ EVERY SINGLE REPORT.

As a few of you know, I am fully disabled.  I have been for about 4 years now.  I have epilepsy, MS, fibromyalgia, severe depression and chronic migraines.  I have been going to the same doctor since I was placed into “Disability” status.

A few months back (October to be specific) I received a call from the Department of Social Security.  They said that due to my “wellness” I am going to be removed from Disability.  That threw me into a loop. I had no idea why, no understanding of what they were saying. My depression and stress went to such a level that I just laid in bed and cried.  All I kept thinking about is the last job that I had.  The manager said, and I quote, “You are a great worker, but we cannot have you work here any longer.  You are a liability to the company, and to the customers.”  Keep in mind that this happened on Christmas Eve 5 years ago.

So you can understand a little about how I felt about wondering how I would be able to explain to my doctors that I have these issues and WHO would want to hire someone that has the issues I do.

After my initial plummet into the giant black hole of despair, I began to question WHY.  Why is this happening?  So I in turn began looking at my medical reports. EVERY SINGLE ONE FOR THE PAST YEAR WAS FALSIFIED.  When I told them what issues that I am having, they put in the report “Patient is not showing any signs of sickness, depression, epilepsy or migraines.”

Okay, let me explain this a little bit better.  Since waffling is happening.  And I will even do a number thingie to make it a little easier to understand.

  • When asked if I am afraid of falling (which they ask) the answer is always: “Yes. I am, but I know it is going to happen.  I am more afraid of what I am going to hurt.” To which they wrote, “Patient is not experiencing any problems with walking and can walk unassisted.” Um…  Wrong.  I use a cane, and have to have someone with me at all times.  I cannot even be left alone for long periods of time due to the fear of ‘falling.’ So how can I NOT be experiencing NO issues with walking?
  • “Blood tests have all come back normal.” I looked at the reports on my blood work.  Why are all these either too high or too low?  Yes Dr.  I do understand what blood results mean.  But no, all things are NORMAL.
  • “Patient does not have any depression,is happy and has a happy mindset.”  Um… If that was the case, why am I on Escitolopram?  Isn’t that a depression medication?  (Note: Escitolopram is the generic version of Lexipro.  It deals with Major Depression.)

Now those are just a small amount of errors that I have found on my medical report.

Look friends, pay attention.  Look at your reports.  If they do not have a site that gives the details, then every 6 months or so, get a copy of your records. Study them, find if there is any discrepancies.

Also, make sure that you keep a detailed journal about your health.  Make a note of every time you get sick, have an accident, a headache, anything.  Keep a track on it.  It is also a good idea to have that journal with you when you go to your doctor.  Make sure to note the time and date that you go, and also their diagnosis.  Keep track of everything.  I know I keep repeating that, but it is IMPORTANT that you do so.  You could lose so much if you don’t.

Please friends, this is something that I cannot stress enough.  Especially if you are on disability, or another government funded insurance.  Those errors can truly cause problems in the long run.

 

Much love,

L.

.:50 Facts About Me:.

This is another one of those “Tag” type things and since I am up, I thought I would try it out.  Hopefully I can come up with 50 things.  *laughs*

1.  I am a Wiccan/Pagan.  I do believe in God, but I feel that there is another side to the power of Divinity.  I feel deep in my heart that there is a Female side within Divinity.  I also feel that God doesn’t live with a building.  HE lives within us all.  Around us all.  The Lord and Lady are surrounding us every moment of our lives.  Nature is my church, my Spirit is Their Home.

2.  I do not believe in Satan/The Devil.  I feel that if I do something bad, that I am the one doing it.  No one, no otherworldly being is to blame for what I do.  I am willing to accept responsibility for what I have done and will not reach out for the ultimate scapegoat to place blame somewhere else.  And to go along with this.  NO I do not worship the Devil or murder small children.  You can’t worship what you don’t believe in.

3. I have three beautiful children that I love with my whole heart.  They are my gifts, my heart and soul.  And the only children that I can tolerate.  Which leads into #4.

4.  I do not like other peoples children.  UNLESS I have this pull to “make” them mine. My friend Rose’s children, I love like they are my own children.  But other peoples kids *shivers.* Don’t get me wrong, kids are funny and make you laugh, but I have seen way to many times, kids acting like complete and total nightmares.  Throwing fits, screaming constantly, lacking respect.  Those are the kids that need to be kept in the house.  Not put into public.  They are an embarrassment.  I know I am sounding harsh, but kids without manners annoy me.

5.  I have epilepsy.  I have had it since I was a small child.  It was a side effect of having the DtP vaccine.  I was allergic to the pertussis part.

6.  I have been struck by lightening.  It didn’t hurt really until after.  Remember kids, if a storm is brewing, GET OFF THE DAMN PHONE!

7.  I have Obsessive Compulsion Disorder.  But thankfully only with certain things.  I count everything, wash my hands frequently, won’t touch doors except in my own home.  If I touch anything, I can feel the ick getting on me and should have stock in hand sanitizer.

8.  I hate telephones.  I hate talking on them, having one, anything.  I do not own a cellphone that has service, nor will I ever.  I will never call anyone back, and if I have to talk on a phone, it has to be on speaker ONLY.

9.  I own cats.  Lots and lots of cats.  16 to be exact.  Their names are:

  • Lucy Belle
  • Sir Gareth Thomas (AKA Peanut Head)
  • Pottamus Prime
  • Draco Catfoy
  • Benjamin Basher
  • Jeffery Deadlox
  • Roman
  • Olaf
  • Masky Sky
  • Hoody Rose
  • Smokey
  • Angel Cake
  • Dartanian
  • Nigelis Jr
  • Gypsy
  • Jericho

10.  I also have 1 dog.  Her name is Tina Marie and she is a mix of something small.  In other words, she is a mutt.

11.  All of my animals are either born in my home or rescues.  I am a notorious cat burglar and will steal a cat if I see that it is being abused in any way, shape or form.  I am more than willing to admit it.

12.  I am “labelled” as Goth.  I wear the black make-up and the black clothing.  I wear the odd jewelry and fishnets.  And I enjoy every moment of it. I am ME.

13.  I am conceited as hell.  I love myself, I have no problem with that.  I love being who I am.

14.  I am very outspoken.  If I have something to say, I will say it.  No qualms here people.

15.  I am brutally honest.  If you don’t want to know the true answer to something, DO NOT ASK ME. I will tell you exactly what I think and will not hold back to save your feelings.  You asked, I tell.

16.  I have stage-fright unlike anything anyone has ever seen.  I cannot stand being on a stage and will lock-up automatically.  Which is weird considering 17.

17.  I do attempt to do karaoke. It helps to break me out of the fences created by dear ol’ #16 up there.  Or at least it attempts to help me with that.

18.  I have been told I should have a recording contract.  People seem to like my voice.  And yes, I sing a lot.

19.  I smoke cigarettes.  It was either that or prescription nerve meds and yeah, I chose what I feel is the lesser of two evils.  I don’t like medication.

20.  I do not drink, nor do I do any sort of drugs.  It is hard enough to get tylenol in me.  Tried pot once and found it stupid and honestly, it was boring as hell.  That whole “Everything is funny” and “Munchies”  is BS.  I am paralyzed.  NOTHING but my brain works.  I found out a while ago that I am probably allergic to it.

21.  I went to college for Psychology.  Came upon hard times 6 months before my graduation and had to drop out.  I had a 4.6 GPA. 😦

22.  I am a wanna-be extreme couponer.  The very thought of buying groceries for a month with just a few bucks gets my engine running.

23.  I do not kiss anyone on the mouth.  Germs people.  GERMS.

24.  I am asexual.  In other words, I do not have the sexual relations. Don’t get me wrong, it can be okay, but when dealing with as much pain as I do, it just isn’t worth it.

25.  Speaking of pain, the doctors are testing me for Rheumatoid Arthritis.  I have been having a lot of pain going on lately so I asked about a test for Lupus.  Well Lupus wasn’t found but something else was wrong.

26.  I have every symptom of Multiple Sclerosis with the exception of the brain lesions.  So they can’t call what is wrong with me MS for certain.

27.  I am part Irish and part Cherokee.  You can’t tell my native american side at all, but damn it, you can see that Irish just fine. THANKS MOM!  *grumbles*

28.  I am nearly blind in both eyes.  I started losing my sight at the age of 12 and it has progressively gotten worse.  I also have astigmatism. YAY ME!

29.  I cannot go out into the sun at all without getting burnt.  My skin is pale people and it doesn’t tan.  IT BURNS.  I can go from the house to the car and be burnt to a crisp.  NOT a good feeling.

30.  I do not watch TV.  I do not like TV.  I will watch videos and things on my computer but sit me in front of a TV and my brain goes dead.  I zone out.

31.  I read. A lot.  If I could, I would have an entire wing off of my house with nothing but a huge library.  Books are the most beautiful things on the planet.  Except my children of course.

32.  I love odd things.  Old dolls, old statues, just things that are weird make me happy.  I actually have a set of glass eyes.  It has both the child size and the adult size.

33.  I love making things.  My imagination goes into overdrive and I begin creating.  Whether it is clothing, jewelry, art. You name it, I will make it.  And 99 time out of 100, it will be something odd.  My favorite pieces right now is my severed old mans head necklace and my vials of “blood.”

34.  If I can find an better and quicker way to do something, you can bet your sweet arse that I will do it that way.  I will find the easiest and most efficient way of doing something and it will get done properly the first time.  I am not one to piddle around with steps if I can do it better my way.

35.  I have a pet potato.  Don’t ask…

36.  I wear toboggans to bed.  I have this intense fear of something crawling in my ears while I sleep, so yeah, I keep em covered.

Ugh, this is getting hard.

37.  I am a human barometer.  I know when it will rain, storm, snow, anything.  I am my own meteorologist.

38.  I am horribly terrified of crickets and grasshoppers.  Nothing else really scares me.  Spiders, snakes, rats anything.  Doesn’t bother me, but you get one of those long legged jumping bastards near me and I will go running off into the sunset screaming bloody murder.  I also tend to scream out for my mommy at some point.

39.  My mother means everything to me. Period.  I am violently protective over my mom.

40. Speaking of violent.  When I get to a certain point, I will do anything possible to hurt whomever got me there.  I go for blood.  Literal BLOOD.  And I cannot control it.  I black out when I hit rage mode and I will hurt people.  NOT those that I love and care about, but the one that hurt me.  When I was younger, I ended up putting 2 people into the hospital.  That is something I am NOT proud of.  So I have lived my life in peace and serenity to keep myself grounded and away from that. I have learned to control my agitation by moving away from it, allowing myself to cool down before I say or do something that will harm another being.

41.  The one thing that I can’t control is my reaction to anyone that harms my daughter.  My sons can take care of themselves but with her, I will protect her with everything I have.  I have come to terms with the Deities that be that if anything was to happen to her, if anyone was to willingly harm her, I will destroy them.  I know that it will be too much for my psyche to take and I will explode into a fit of pure fury that will make the Titans (the Gods that Zeus locked into prison for eternity.  Google it.) look like altar boys.  I will find whoever did it and they will….  Well, I won’t go there.

42.  I do not feel what I consider “Wasteful Emotions.”  Jealousy, Envy, Greed all are wasteful emotions.  I will not waste my life wishing for what another has. I am grateful for what I have.  I cherish each little tidbit.  While yes, I do feel that things could be better, I will not dwell on the fact that I am where I am.  I am stronger because of what is around me, and I appreciate the little things in life because of it.

43.  I do not tolerate abuse in any way, shape or form.  I will defend those that need help.  It is my protective side that does it.  And yes, that goes for snot nose kids too. I may not like them, but I won’t tolerate someone hurting them.

44.  I have a statue of “The Thinker” on my desk.  It helps me to focus on what I need to.  And he is doing his best to keep me on track here.

45.  I do not have many friends.  But those that I consider my friends aren’t friends, they are my family.

46.  I have a monkey toy that was given to me when I was a child.  It is my little MonkMonk.  I also have a porcelain piggy bank that is older than I am.  WAY OLDER than I am. I got it when I was 5.

47.  I cannot drink water.  At all.  I love water, but as soon as it hits my stomach it comes right back up and I look like a baby spitting up.  It is quite disturbing.

48.  While I do eat meat, I can very easily be a vegetarian.  I am anemic so by doctors orders, meat has to be on the menu.  GAK.

49.  I much prefer the night time over day time. I just feel more comfortable that way.

50.  If you ever ask me a question, the answer will always either be 42 or goats.  Don’t ask me why, but that is my first reaction to anything.

I do hope that you have enjoyed this and I tag each and every one of you to do it too.  By all means do it in the comments below, or start a blog yourself. Its free here on WordPress.  And if you do, by all means share the link below!
