Follow my blog with Bloglovin One of the things that drives me up the wall the most about Lyme is how my symptoms are constantly changing over time. It seems like I've just gotten used to one thing and then another thing pops up. Many of my neurological symptoms, such as increased irritability and depression, … Continue reading Tracking Symptoms for Chronic Illness
I wrote this post over two months ago and just realized I should get around to posting it. If there’s anything I’d want people to know about Lyme disease, it’s that oftentimes the normal signs are not present, and the symptoms are different in everyone. Oftentimes the symptoms appear over such a prolonged period of … Continue reading My Diagnosis Story
I've always loved to read. My mom nicknamed me Belle (from Beauty & The Beast) when I was little because I always had my nose in a book. I still read a decent amount but I have a hard time finding books to read. I've signed up with Goodreads.com which is supposed to provide pretty … Continue reading Sick Day Reading
I want to start posting more recipes, because I am cooking ALL THE TIME now. I wrote this recipe round-up a month ago, and it's a good start. Let me know if you have any questions on any of the recipes, I love talking about cooking! Without further ado... I have been cooking up a … Continue reading Recipe Round-up
I'm finally back in Minnesota, after a transatlantic voyage and a week in Florida. I still can't get over how far you can go in so little time in this day and age. As I changed planes in Iceland, I thought to myself, what a wonderful and strange time that we can cross the world … Continue reading Home Sweet Home

My mind is a list of all the things I have to do before I leave on Saturday - all of the goodbyes, the visa procedures, the returning of library books, the buying of cheap H&M jeans (seriously H&M is so much cheaper and better here), the … Continue reading Last Post from Sweden
Halfway through my commute to school this morning, when I realized that my trip would take twice as long as it normally does (due to the holiday transit schedule), and I was already late, I decided to skip my transfer and continue on the train to my favorite coffee shop in my favorite neighborhood. On … Continue reading Happy New Year!
I'm off antibiotics! Unfortunately it's not because I'm recovered, but because I just couldn't deal with the side effects any longer. I had been on 3 different antibiotics at a time for two months, and my body just said enough. It came to a head last week when I was so bloated I felt like … Continue reading Some Changes
This city was pretty much made for this time of year. The light (when it is out), gives everything the most beautiful glow, and the glitter and garland everywhere make the city feel so cozy. Every time I walk outside I feel like recreating the part of Elf where he spins around and shouts, "I'm … Continue reading Stockholm Lately
Hello again! Had a bit of a rough week last week. Started off with some bad stomach cramps and ended with some kind of cold virus/allergy combination. Erik was sick too at the end of the week, which made for a pretty exciting weekend. The highlight was probably this bowl of soup (Yes I instagrammed … Continue reading I’m alive!
