What is going on you guys? I’ve been away for ever and I am sorry! For those of you that have subscribed for a long time thank you for holding out for new post.
So here’s what I need to update y’all on:
-New health things (good and bad).
-Still missing Arkansas, but enjoying Texas so much more now.
-I got lost in downtown Houston.
-Mom’s health update.
So I will be updating you all very soon on all the above mentioned things mentioned above and more. So yeah, I look forward to your comments and likes
Yesterday, my mom had a major MS attack. If you read my previous MS post about being a caretaker, you’ll know that my mom hasn’t been too well the last few weeks.
Sadly my dad and I had to run my mom to the ER last night after the entire right side of her body seized up into what can best be described as a right-bodied MS Hug combined with total muscle spasms specifically on the right side of the body. As I told my mom afterwards, it kinda looked like she was possessed, by the way her right side was contorting.
We are now in the hospital and she is getting her nerves/muscles treated with a mix of steroids, potassium chloride, and clonazepam. All that along with a couple MRIs and a few days rest and she’ll be right as rain….ish.
So as most of you know by now I live in Houston, TX and really love a lot of things about it. However there are a couple of things that I personally would say aren’t the best in the world, for example, the weather. It’s completely unpredictable and I never know what to wear or if shoes are needed -if it were possible, I’d wear flip flops everyday. One of the other things that I am getting used to is the crime rate here. It’s not a gang land situation or anything, but its a huge change from Northwest Arkansas. I mean, I know this sounds crazy but I felt safer walking around NYC than I do walking around dt Houston- that’s not exactly normal tbh. There’s really only one other thing that annoys me about Houston, you have to drive forever to get damn near anywhere, which ok, I love to drive but an 30mins to get to Starbucks? No thank you.
(Yes this post is extremely #firstworldproblems in nature).
So here’s the deal y’all. I moved to Houston not only to be closer to family, but also to start what I thought was a dream job… Unfortunately, the later didn’t pan out the way I thought it would and I am now a full-time caretaker (which I honestly don’t mind), I also run this blog, my other social outlets and guest post on a few other sites. Though I love this and I would love to make blogging and writing/vlogging my full-time career, its extremely difficult to make a huge splash on the scene and lets be honest, it doesn’t really bring home the bacon (unless you’re reviewing bacon…mmm now I hungry). Anyway, I have submitted my resume to countless companies and have yet to hear anything. My skills are there and though I don’t always have the education needed (ie: certain degrees) I am a very fast learner and I am willing to do darn near anything.
Sometimes I fear I made the wrong decision in moving here because I have yet to hear anything, and its rather scary going without an office or retail job for this long. I had what I thought was a great interview with a really forward thinking retailer that I love, but thats been a while now and I have yet to hear anything back. My confidence is starting to waver because I haven’t heard back from them or anyone else yet.
Yes, this is my little pity party, but I just needed to get it out there. It’s hard sometimes to be positive and see the light, so right now I am focusing on making sure I do the absolute best I can to get my mom out of her current MS attack and to come up with engage-able content for both my blog and my YouTube channel.
