Slightly Late Link Love 29.5.2015

Hello darling! Sorry I'm late-- I was catching up on Game of Thrones! Oops. This week, I spent my days reading and writing and my evenings curled up with my love, nerding out over documentaries about Marilyn Monroe, and maritime animals. This weekend I'm in Ohio with my parents. What are your weekend plans?

Eye Cream & Emotional Intelligence: Link Love 8.5.2015

Hello gorgeous! How was your week? I wrote about how being disabled make me feel like I'm living a double life, started taking a new business class online, and devoured  reread multiple chapters of Little Women (a childhood favourite of mine, and an item on my 101 in 1001 list).

What to read this weekend (other than Little Women!):

Enjoy your weekend!

Being disabled makes me feel like I'm living a double life.

There are days when I function almost like an ablebodied, neurotypical person; I can run a block to catch the bus. I wake up early to work and eat breakfast and take my vitamins. I have lattes with friends and call my boyfriend on his lunch break and spend time with my family.

But on bad days...

I literally can't get out of bed. I skip meals because toasting a slice of bread or grabbing an apple takes more effort than I can expend. I have panic attacks that leave me in tears. I can't keep any food down and swallow Gravol by the package.

This is a double life, but it's not glamorous. I'm no Hannah Montana!
