Strapped in and holding on tight for this bumpy ride

I remember when I was little my Mother used to tell me that life is often like a roller coaster with lots of twists, turns, lows and highs you never expected, and it seems this old adage likes to slap me upside the head from time to time, but I have learned to strap myself in, and expect the unexpected even when things seem at their best.  Since I seem to use my blog as a sounding board more often than not, for the things going on in my life, I have decided to stick to my pattern and share the latest adventure.

Several weeks ago I had an issue and ended up in the Emergency Room of the local hospital and had a scan done of my entire abdomen where, at the time, the doctors said there were multiple cysts on my left ovary that needed further study.  So of course the ultrasound was performed pretty shortly there after, and it wasn't several cysts, but one large growth with several lobes, approximately the size of an orange.  Par for the course with me, it couldn't be a "normal" cyst, it has to be something strange and quite possibly, rather serious.  So for the last ten days I have been scrambling to move from my townhouse of seven years into my new home, trying to deal with the pain and waiting until I see a Specialist at the end of this week, while still being Mom and girl-friend.  My immune system issues are rearing their ugly heads and I am completely and utterly worn out, to the point of being overwhelmed and napping daily, if I have the time.  The days I spent without internet and unable to work have put me in a pretty foul mood because I use my blogging as a stress reliever, and I have come to rely on it over the last couple of years.  It seems odd to me that something so simple, could bring me such joy, and I love being able to write about what is going on in my life and having it mean something to someone.  So many people suffer in silence and don't realize how many people are out there just like them.  I was one of those people for a long time when I first got sick, and I felt so alone.  I wish I had known about blogs, because I have found so many that offer my support and understanding, without a lot of interaction.  Sometimes, in the darkest of times, it isn't a bunch of people that are needed to bring the light back, more times than not, it is something like the heartfelt, revealing words put upon a blog.  And sometimes, it's just the knowledge that someone else feels like you do, or is facing the same issues you are.  So through the tough times, I will continue to blog as I can, because maybe, someone needs to read what I have to say, and maybe it might just help them get through another night on their bumpy ass ride of life.

I was quite excited to return yesterday with a wonderful message from the owner of Petit Chat letting me know I had made it to the second round of consideration for her Bloggers!  I have been a fan since I first started blogging, back on my p.o.s. computer, and I couldn't render materials.  When I got the new computer and saw her blogger applications were open, I jumped at the chance!  After reading the Notecard, I rummaged through my overflowing closet and found this absolutely adorable new jewelry collection perfectly boxed and waiting for me to show to you all!  The Crystalline Collection features a 100% original mesh design with hand painted textures from Trinity Yazimoto and a HUD to change the colors as you like, you can also make a copy and modify the jewels until your heart is content, making the earrings and necklace an incredibly versatile collection that just MUST be added to your jewelry box!  The transparent orb features celestial designs inside that are expertly meshed and textured with an incredible attention to detail, so make sure you hurry on over to InspirationSL and pick yours up today, you won't be disappointed!  And while you are out shopping, make sure to stop by Virtual Diva and pick up this gorgeous new hair design!  The Lila hair comes in a Fat Pack with 12 different tones for ONLY 300L, making it not only a stunning design, but affordable too, making it a must have addition to your hair collection, I promise you won't be disappointed!

Remember when faced with life's most difficult challenges to breathe, slow down, and HANG ON! No matter what it is, someone else has faced it, and probably can offer a few words of advice, encouragement, or just simply the words, "It will be ok," and that can make all the difference in someone's world!

Have a wonderfully wicked rest of your day and remember to always stay true to your style and make today's trends in fashion and home decor work for you!
