The 12 Days Of Christmas: Spoonie Edition

hi my magical ones! its been a minute, huh? hope you all are well tho!!!

I’m back with a very fun post that is holiday themed because its finally December and that means I’m pumping out Christmas music non-stop and basically making everyone sick lol. But I came up with this idea this summer and I have been doodling on it on and off the past few months and I finally finished it and I’m so happy with it! I basically wrote the 12 days of  Christmas: Spoonie Edition as a fun little nod to having a chronic illness during the holidays. My thought is that we need a good little giggle this holiday season!! Please enjoy!

 

on the first day of Christmas my illness gave to me one big dose of chronic fatigue!

on the second day of Christmas my illness gave to me two cases of Sepsis!

on the third day of Christmas my illness gave to me three mood swings!

on the forth day of Christmas my illness gave to  me four cases of painsomnia!

on the fifth day of Christmas my illness gave to me, Five days in the Hospital!!!

on the sixth day of Christmas my illness gave to me six anxiety attacks!

on the seventh day of Christmas my illness gave to me seven blood draws!

on the eighth day of Christmas my illness gave to me eight doctors appointments!

on the ninth day of Christmas my illness gave to me nine new allergies!

on the tenth day of Christmas my illness gave to me ten finger sticks!

on the eleventh day of Christmas my illness gave to me eleven IVs!

on the twelfth day of Christmas my illness gave to me twelve new prescriptions!

but no matter what my illness throws at me, i keep my head up because I’m a FIGHTER!

 

HAPPY HOLIDAYS MY MAGICAL FIGHTERS!

XOXO -Rachel

30 days of blogging- day 30

hi my magical ones! hope you are all well. thank you for joining me for day 30 of my 30 days of blogging! todays topic is what I’ve learned during this month.

This month was so important for me as far as growing as a writer. I feel like I pushed myself to step out of my comfort zone some as I wrote on topics that I don’t typically like to.

Personally, I put self care as a priority for myself. It really made a difference as I was recovering from surgery.

30 days of blogging- Day 29

hi my magical ones! hope you are all well. thank you for joining me for day 29 of my 30 days of blogging! todays topic is the ways I relax!

Being a spoonie who also cares for another chronically ill person and who is also trying to write a book and maintain relationships can be stressful so I try to have ways I can relax.

My favorite way to relax is to turn Netflix on and lay down and watch one of my favorite shows. It seems to take me to another place and that takes all the stress away.

Another way I relax is adult coloring books. There are so many different ones available now and even Apps so it’s really accessible and fun.

Music is another way I relax. I have a playlist for every mood and I love just putting my earbuds in and singing my stress away.

30 days of blogging- day 28

hi my magical ones! hope you are all well. thank you for joining me for day 28 of my 30 days of blogging! todays topic is my most embarrassing moment.

When I was in the 6th grade I was running to get to my algebra class and I was late. So I thought I would take a shortcut and run around the side of the building and go in the side doors and maybe get to class on time.

Well, I was wearing these sandals with this elastic band across the top and the toe of the shoe got caught on the sidewalk and I fell face first into a large mud puddle.

Worst part? I still had to go into my math class while covered in mud from head to toe and ask for permission to go call my mom.

My mom and I still laugh about this.

30 days of blogging- day 27

hi my magical ones! hope you are all well. thank you for joining me for day 27 of my 30 days of blogging! todays topic is my 5 favorite songs.

I am a firm believer that music has the power to change our moods and whenever I need a mood boost I go to these songs:

>Even if it breaks your heart

By: Eli Young Band

>Gasoline

By: Halsey

>H.O.L.Y

By: Florida Georgia Line

>Look what you made me do

By: Taylor Swift

>Live Forever

By: The Band Perry

This list changes really regularly honestly but for right now, these are the songs I’m loving and singing along to the most.

30 days of blogging- day 26

hi my magical ones! hope you are all well. thank you for joining me for day 26 of my 30 days of blogging! todays topic is a confession.

This is a hard one to write. But here we go: I’m struggling with my book. I’m fighting to put every single word on the page. Honestly, I want to give up most days. It leaves me asking why I keep pushing myself to finish it because I don’t even know if it’s going to be any good.

But I keep going. I keep pushing myself to write. I keep putting words down even when it’s hard and my word count sucks, I keep going.

Because this is my dream and I’m so lucky to be getting the chance to be chasing my dream.

30 days of blogging- day 25

hi my magical ones! hope you are all well. thank you for joining me for day 25 of my 30 days of blogging! todays topic is what’s in my closet.

Well, being the queen of comfy, I own a ton of leggings mostly in black and grey (you will see a trend in a minute) several pairs of yoga pants in black, and several pairs of jeggings (jean/legging combos) in black and grey.

Add in a dozen t-shirts from various fandoms, a doctor who dress, a few maxi dresses, a couple of nice tank tops and a handful of nice tops for when I have to go be an adult and that’s pretty much my wardrobe when it comes to non pajama wear.

Being a spoonie my pajama collection is embarrassingly large. I will buy pajamas before I buy any other clothes because I know that’s the clothes I will wear and enjoy more than anything.
