Last Friday, my dad tested positive. My mom stayed away from him as much as possible, but they live together. Saturday, I was riding in the car with Mom. I went to my sisters house to babysit my...

Checking in.

Hey, friends. I’m still here. Still healthy. I am back-reading to catch up with you all I need to get back to writing, because I have a lot going on(as does everyone) and a lot to sort out. Don...

Let me get this straight. The Bible also says you shouldn’t wear braids in your hair, have sex or children out of wedlock, eat shrimp, or smoke cigarettes, yet here you are doing all 4, and you’...

Three weeks ago, yesterday, I had my uterus out. Today, at my follow up, I swear it seemed like my doctor was wrist-deep in my downstairs business. That shit hurt. Anyway, I’m all healed up and...

I’ve yeeted my uterus.

Surgery was successful. I’m out of the hospital already.

I don’t have COVID. Surgery still on for tomorrow.

April 26, 2021

Maybe not.

Sorry I haven’t been writing. My wrist was hurting from carpal tunnel. So, despite being vaccinated, I think I may have covid. I go for a test today. I’ve lost my voice, I’m tired, and today, I...

Back home.

Ever seen the movie ‘Friday’? I told my Mom I’m sorry that she and Dad can no longer do the balls-johnson dance. Love them for letting me stay here for the month. Work was interesting. Was sup...

31 days until my reproductive system will be removed from my body via robot! I know I haven’t been around much, but I plan to write every single day until I’m a voluntary eunuch! I brought a shir...

Appointment made.

Gonna yeet the uterus on 4/28! I’m so excited. Also, it’s been about 48 hours since the pap and I’m still cramping. Yep, these female parts gotta go.

March 02, 2021

Just documenting.

Yeah, this uterus has got to go. 24 hours after a pap and I’m still cramping. And this is just one of the things wrong with it.

I’m still here. Still alive. Doing great. Gonna try and catch up with all of you. And write more. Today, my obgyn and I decided that I need a hysterectomy.

I just want to sleep.

Mourning. It comes in waves. And you never know when another wave will hit You never know what the next moment will bring. Will you cry with the next memory? Will you laugh? The worst part is ...

Bipolar powers, activate!

I was doing really good with my mental illness. But now I’m sitting here at work, with loads of energy, giggling to myself, and talking my coworkers heads off. Mourning all week, now I’m manic?...

My cousin just died. And I didn’t want to go over my family’s house because I didn’t want to hug anyone. 1. Because I work on a COVID unit, and 2. Because I literally just got my nipples pierced...

I wanna write.

Seems like every day I write an entry in my head, but I can’t put it to paper. I still owe pictures and an entry from my surgery. I’m still living in the hotel. Been here since April. Will be h...

Apparently, I was wrong to assume that my coworker would be drawing the patient’s blood, even though she specifically asked me to bring her some 25 gauge butterfly needles.

August 25, 2020

Y’all, I’m sorry.

I’m still working on what I want to say about my surgery. Haven’t forgotten. Mother Nature is on her way. My mental health drops when this is happening. Just the other day, I was trying to figu...

August 19, 2020

Aye! It’s done!

I’m so happy! And sore! Anyway, how to post pics? I’ll share my story when I can, but you gotta be able to see pics to get the full impact.

I go in tomorrow morning and get the thing I should have received 2 weeks ago when I had that minor surgery! I’m still at work at the moment. But it’s like, I just wanna go straight to bed when I...

August 09, 2020

Epic fail!

The return didn’t go as planned. Blame it on the surgery and my mind being elsewhere. Anyway, I got my nose pierced today. I’ll try again this week with constant entries.

August 05, 2020

hello there

I did have my little minor surgery yesterday, but one thing, one big thing (to me) didn’t go as planned, so I don’t wanna write about it just yet. This should be rectified by the end of the mont...

August 03, 2020

Things are going great.

Tomorrow, I will either A) Have surgery, or B) Enjoy my day off, being safe and warm inside It’s up to God and the weather at this point. If I end up staying in, I’ll probably write a huge entr...

Did you ever think that you wouldn’t be able to go into a Waffle House and order a waffle, hash browns with onions and cheese, and coffee? Man. I miss this place. I just replaced my iPad and purc...

I’ve been to 5 protests in the past 5 days. Gassed twice. The scariest part of being black is that I can be killed for no reason, and others would try to justify my murderer’s actions.
