What (and Where) I Write

I write about Lyme disease a LOT.  Because I have it and it's time consuming and considerably life-limiting, especially post-relapse (Spring 2014).  Which has put me on a very long sabbatical to recover.

As you can see form this list, I've had several blogging identity crises since I began writing in 2011 or so.  Partly because I always thought I was about to get better, didn't know what my real illness was, pushed and worked through treatment, and didn't want to live in an illness filled space all the time.

I can't do justice to this topic in a blurb.  Three years into Lyme disease I was finally correctly diagnosed and treated.  There is Lyme disease in Montana, despite the refusal of state and national agencies to acknowledge or treat it properly.  This needs to change, and patient advocacy becomes nearly an obsession for Lyme sufferers if they have the abilities to try and help this cause, which many do not.

Hub Pages, Rocky Mountain Mom

I used this site as practice when I was considering freelance writing this past summer, and as a distraction while putting applications in to content sites and navigating the writing tests and set up on various platforms.  I was accpeted to those sites, but after some concentrated paid writing, I was over-doing it and getting sicker, so I listed to my spouse and took a step back.  I write here occasionally and have published some Lyme disease articles there.

Turtle Medicine 

I started with Turtle Medicine which was illness based, but also very hopeful and optimistic.

Bread and Roses

I fell into some pretty insane legal disability (or anti-disability, rather, as I was fighting to work) loopholes with my federal employer and fell into a year and a half horrific and traumatic federal process.  I didn't want that experience to infect everything I was writing, but it was too big a part of my life not to write about it.  I thought I could help others, but there's not much that can be done other than try to survive if you get stuck in something like that.
