Welcome Sista’s!!!!

I want to welcome everyone that is coming by today!!!!!  I am super excited to be the featured blogger by SITS today!  If anyone doesn’t know who they are you need to check them out because they are totally awesome!  They pick a blogger a day and feature that blogger.  Today is my day and I am super happy and excited that everyone is coming by today!!!!!

Let me tell you about me.  I am a 25 year old that is going through a divorce to a total idiot.  Here is a story from when I was learning to drive that I think you will find funny.  I also have written two post about Bullying which you can find here & here.  Bullying is something that I feel strongly about because I was bullied when I was in school.

I placed a baby for adoption when I was 20 and funny enough the 7th was her 5th birthday so this made that day easier on me! Here and here are where I wrote about the experience.

I have to cats that I call either the girls or the cubs and I treat them like they are children!  Here and here is a post that they posted on my blog awhile back.

 I also have Multiple Sclerosis.  I post updates about that all the time but here are two posts about M.S.
Me & The MS
FYI About MS

I am so glad that everyone  stopped by!  I will return visits and emails as soon as I can!!!!!!  Have a great day and I hope that you stick around!!!!!!

I am a 33-year-old blogger. I write about my life and my struggles with Multiple Sclerosis. I also am a huge bookworm, and I have been doing book reviews for years now. I even blog about adoption, Multiple Sclerosis, and things that go on in my life.

  70. Happy SITS day. And as someone who has been divorced from a total idiot for about three years, I'm here to tell you things get better. I'm sorry about what you're going through, but hang in there.

  95. Katie P says:

    Wow. I can't believe you've gone through so much in such a short period of time. Being diagnosed with MS in the 10th grade — I can't imagine! My mom was diagnosed with MS when I was in the 7th grade, and I remember her going through all the same things you described in your post Me & the MS. She is still on Avonex, still has the terrible flu-like symptoms once a week. Luckily for her, she's only had one episode since she started the meds 15 years ago. I still pray though that she will make it to be able to run around with any future grandchildren she may have.

    God bless you, it looks like you've been through a lot of hardships, and I'm so glad you've found an outlet like blogging to get your thoughts out. And what a great network of SITstahs to share them with!

  107. Barnmaven says:

    Congratulations on your SITS Day.

    I, too, am in the middle of divorcing a total idiot! I can't say that on my blog, though — I don't want my children to read it someday and see me saying bad things about their dad.

    Interesting that you are a birthmom — I am adopted.

    Love your blog, looking forward to reading more!

  108. Hope you are enjoying your SITS day! 🙂

    Congratulations your your SITS day! Such a pleasure to meet you. Sorry to hear about the divorce, although, from your description of him, it sounds like your so much better off. I look forward to reading your posts. I don't know much about MS and am interested in learning more. Jenn

  117. Wonderful blog!! You're so brave to write so honestly about your divorce. I have a friend going through one now and although it's been very stressful, we're both relieved she'll soon be free of him and can move on with her life.

    Hang in there.

  118. Zeemaid says:

    congrats on your sits day! I'm so looking forward to checking out your posts!

  119. Michelle says:

    Congrats on your SITS day! your blog is lovely. Wow, living with MS – I know your struggles must be very difficult. For the past year my doctors have been convinced I have MS, but I haven't been given a concrete diagnosis yet. I've been far too reluctant to get my MRI done to let me know one way or the other. I have lots of other health issues going on that cause me to react to even the simplest of things in a very bad way, which has been my reason for not getting my MRI (I'm afraid of my reaction to the contrast dye). But as of late, things are pointing more in that direction, although I keep hoping it's going to be something else. I'm so glad to have found someone like yourself that is willing to share their experiences with MS with others. Thanks so much! Peace. 😉

  120. Happy SITS day!

  121. Aunt Crazy says:

    Stay strong and Happy SITS day!!

  148. Stopping by from SITs to say hi! Wow – you really are a strong individual! In May this year I took part in a 24 hours mega swim to raise money for people living with MS. It was such a great event and I had a very good school friend that was diagnosed in her early 20s. It felt great to be able to do something. MS is so misunderstood so thank you for sharing.

  149. classycareergirl says:

  153. I'm stopping by from SITS. I'm a day late, but that's because I wanted a chance to look around your blog a bit more.

    I read your posts about MS. I can't imagine how difficult those must have been to write. You're really brave for being so honest. I know how hard that can be. I hope that you have received loads of support, though! You seem like a very strong woman!!

  154. North of 25A says:
