CP and Me: The Chronic Pain

I post a lot about my life with Cerebral Palsy on my personal IG page. This is one of the pictures that I posted about chronic pain. So after this picture was posted I received multiple messages asking me if I really was 1 of 2, because they never ‘heard’ me complain about chronic pain or I didn’t ‘look’ like I was hurting when they were around me.  (more…)


Go Red For Women: The Day Everything Changed

This is one of those stories that I haven’t talked about much on here. March 10, 2005 I was a senior in college attending Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, NC. I loved college, I was enjoying my time there, getting ready to graduate and really appreciated my HBCU experience. That day everything changed. I woke up that morning, extremely thirsty, grabbed the bottle of water from my night stand next to my bed. Tried to take a drink and ended up spilling it. I thought I was just being clumsy. (more…)

Cerebral Palsy and Me


March is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month and I decided that I would talk more about my life with CP since quite a few of you have asked about it. I was diagnosed with Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy at the age of 2. The doctors and my parents noticed that something just wasn’t quite right, my development was delayed. Usually by the time a child turns two they are walking, well it comes to me, I was just crawling.

Healing Herbs and Spices

20130829-082651.jpg

Going through Pinterest this morning, I came across this photo. What do you think?

Do you cook with herbs and spices? Have you used them for other things besides cooking? I know I will drink mint tea if I have an upset stomach, but I notice the chart says to try basil. This seems like an interesting task.

This has me thinking, could herbs and spices really help with ailments? Looks like I have some research to do. It would be nice to see which items that we have in our pantry can help us obtain a healthy lifestyle.

Have you tried any of these? Got some tips to share? Feel free to comment and let me know!!
