When Someone Uses Your Illness Against You

I decided today to write about something that annoys me to no end. When you are having an argument or are angry with someone and they throw your Illness in your face… You are so bipolar! You are crazy that isn’t what happened, your bipolar is getting out of control. All the things that can be said go on and on, but at the end of the day they are simply refusing to take responsibility for their actions and blaming your illness instead.

JORD Watch Review and #Giveaway

Disclosure: I received one of these products to help facilitate my review. In any case I only suggest products to my readers that I feel are good quality products. All opinions here are my own and may differ from yours. 

When I received the email asking if I may be interested in doing a review of a JORD wooden watch, I was intrigued. A wooden watch, how awesome and different, I love out of the ordinary products. I agreed as I thought this might be a fun occasion watch, and/or a good conversation piece, but it is truly lovely. Very well made, top quality, all details are gorgeous even the packaging is lovely.

I need your help


Image courtesy of Grant Cochrane /

I am writing today to ask for some support. I have been taking a class online with a spiritual energy healer, to learn to use my healing gifts. I have discovered that I have a strong healing ability, I have the gift of Clairsentience (which I have written about before) and I have the ability to help others and need to hone those skills.

There is a weekend intensive class in Massachusetts in May, and I have a place to stay and can be picked up from the airport and can walk everywhere I need to go so all I need is a plane ticket. That ticket is going to cost me at least 450.00, plus I will need a bit of money for food.
