It's My Day!!


WELCOME SITSTAHS!


I'm Kerri, and I am so excited and honored to be today's featured blogger! My dear friend Joanna introduced me to SITS, and I am blessed to have met some wonderful women in this journey called life. I'm sure I never would have come in contact with these new friends otherwise. It's fantastic. I love the concept of community, and the support that we offer each other.

For those of you who DON'T know what SITS is, well, you simply MUST check it out! SITS stands for "The Secret is in the Sauce," and their motto is "The Secret To Success is Support." It has been a real joy and privilege to get to know some very strong, encouraging, and HILARIOUS women. I started blogging a little over a year ago, and when I was introduced to SITS, my bloggy world really opened up. I still have SO many of you to discover, and I'm really honored that you are reading my blog!

So...welcome to Living With Chronic Illness. I have a chronic illness called Myasthenia Gravis (MG), a nueromuscular disease that I was diagnosed with several years ago. I started having symptoms in 1995, was hospitalized in 2000, and nearly died. Through God's grace and a lot of prayer, along with some really incredible doctors, I came back from the brink to get a LOT of my life back. You can read about MG and the symptoms I struggle with HERE.

I'm a holy-crow-I'm-almost-40 year old wife to Doug (aka McGuyver) and mom to the most precious, talented, intelligent, compassionate little boy on the planet, Jacob. He is truly a miracle!
So again, welcome, kick off your shoes, grab a cup of java and look around some!


I am a city kid, transplanted to the country, and it has taken me a lot to get adjusted. You read a tiny bit about that beginning here: Dead Roosters and Other Happenings

One thing that is very frustrating about chronic illness is well, that it is chronic! No matter how long you have it, while you "adjust", you never TRULY accept your "new" life. A piece of you always hangs on to the former...but there are ways to turn chronic on its ear: Chronic Living

It's so hard to pick 3 favorite posts...it's like picking 3 favorite flowers, or songs, or movies, or CHOCOLATE! SO...Here's kind of a multiple choice so you can peek at what interests you.

Life with MG is certainly not without its challenges, however. You can read about some of them in this post: Cursed Disease!


This blog contains more than JUST stuff about chronic living...since I am a city kid by nature, I've got some pretty funny animal tales. Check this out: Another Turkey Tale (NOT Gross)

A few more of my favorites:

Loss Comes in Many Forms Not people, and not keys or sunglasses.

Make Up Your Mind! Live on purpose!!!

Courage Surviving is harder than giving up!

My Name Is....... Illness.

Thank you again for stopping by. I will return all the comments I receive, even if it takes a little while. Thank you to Heather and Tiffany for this awesome opportunity to get the word out about chronic illness, and that you can live with it. I don't mean just live, I mean LIVE!

Musings from Me said...

Thank you for posting. I read a couple of other posts on your blog. I have some indirect experience with MD. My husband's cousin's son has Duchenne MD. Brave kid! I watch the telethon every year...I know that some question why the telethon is so sappy and maudlin, but I know that it raises money for a good cause.

You are an inspiration to me! I will complain a little less or hopefully not at all about my cold symptoms.

bubbleboo said...

Congratulations on your day - relax and enjoy being comment-pampered!

bluewhitelife said...

Happy SITS day! I live with a much less painful disease (at least, I'm used to it...I hear rumors it IS actually painful...) but don't nearly have the ability to blog about it (it's pretty gross.) That said, I commend you for being so brave and honestly, informative. I knew nothing about MG before reading your blog, but now I have insight into that world AND your world of being a mother and a wife and a blogger! Happy SITS day!

OC Fun Blog said...

Happy SITS Day! Your story is so encouraging. You are obviously a very couragous woman and posess a ton of faith in God to be able to love the way you do. Having a child under those circumstances let alone being a mother with this illness is incredibly selfless. Knowing the risks yet taking those risks makes you one of the most God trusting people I know (well virtually know). Thank you for sharing your blog and story.

Sorry about your illness. I live with severe asthmas which I am not comparing to your disease but I do know how it feels not to be able to do the things I use to do. I am however able to sit at my computer and type. Blogging has changed my life in a million ways. Very nice to meet you and I will be back to chat with you.

Hi Kerri,

MG is a subject that is near and dear to us at Sist3rs. Our grandfather nearly died of this disease a few years ago. His small-town doctor was not very bright, and believe it or not, I discovered his diagnosis online while living in England. I called his doctor and told her what tests to run.

Thankfully, his doctor got on board and properly diagnosed him.

Happy SITS day! I'm looking forward to reading more.
