The Real Superhero Project
I posted on my facebook page that I was running low on patience and physically and emotionally exhausted.  So many comments and yet I am sure many were linking it to my constant pace of work.  My exhaustion has little to do with my daily routine.  It is emotional pain at the journey two of...

Take a Bow

Take a Bow
I must preface this post.  In the past few months some of our dear friends have received devastating news.  I have been fighting survivors guilt of sorts; no matter how I feel or have felt, it in no way compares or diminishes their change of events.  We love you all and you know who you...

Scoliosis Awareness Month 2013; Waiting for our "Rudy" moment.

Scoliosis Awareness Month 2013; Waiting for our "Rudy" moment.
I absolutely adore the movie Rudy.  Maybe it is my love of Notre Dame football or more likely the story of the underdog overcoming all obstacles for a hard earned few minutes of passion in the play.  Whatever the reason, when the crowd begins chanting, “rudy, Rudy, RUDY!” the tears start forming.  Eventually my lip...

When the waters come

I had all these grand plans for posts during the holidays.  I have in fact written a beautiful series in my head.  Life has a way of throwing you off kilter when you least expect it and mine came 35 days ago in the form of a flood.  December 5th started as normal as a... Read more »

I wish you enough

I wish you enough
Sitting down to write the 100th post for Suck it, Scoliosis, it seems so appropriate to meet this milestone just a week after our 3 year anniversary, 1 week after returning home from an unbelievable weekend for my Lucky Cast Club sisters.  Humble is the primary word that comes to mind when I look back on our journey. ...

Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em: When is it time to move out of cast world?

Yes, once again I am dealing with guilt for neglecting my beloved Lucky Cast Club.  I have written 10 posts in my head while traversing my busy world of working two jobs, trying to maintain my Mom status and find time for sleep in the process.  In the course of a month we have shared...

Usain Bolt: Power of Possibility

Usain Bolt: Power of Possibility
Since William’s diagnosis at 10 months of age different fears have fought their way to my world.  In the beginning I feared whether he would hit his milestones: crawling, walking, running, jumping, etc… With great pride he met the milestones, although often later then his peers.  As his personality has emerged I have seen a...

The best of the bad....New rules, new game

The best of the bad....New rules, new game
The downside of maintaining a blog focused entirely on Scoliosis…if you want to escape from the journey, your blog stays dormant.  I am grateful my friends were kind enough to guest post when I was unwilling to admit we still had a dog in this fight.  Yes, I took the ostrich approach to the almost...
