Hack week

Deadlines are everywhere. Today is a deadline for someone. The world is full of deadlines. Deadlines mean something different to me. With chronic illness you are always sick. Every day. It is something you manage. But sometimes you get really fucking sick. Something new. Something different. For me deadline day helps me cope with the […]

Duey

I had to take my tiny Duey- my zebra warrior son to the doctor today. This kid. Let me tell you about this kid. I call him my tiny Duey but he is 17 years old and 6 feet tall. Realistically, he dwarfs me, but when I look at him I still see this curly-headed, […]
