  • Act Your…What?

    December 13, 2019 by

    “You don’t act like a disabled person.” Um, not sure what you mean. “You need to start acting like a person with a disability.” Yeah, that didn’t clear anything up. Can you be more specific? “The way you are, the way you act, the way you live. That’s not how someone with your condition should… Read more

  • Thank-you

    December 12, 2019 by

    UPDATE: Last week I ran into some problems with my web host, and I had to shut everything down. That meant finding a new host, creating a new site, and uploading all of my blogs. It’s taken a lot of time but it’s done and I’m so happy! Thank you for your patience, understand, and… Read more

  • What Could Go Wrong

    December 11, 2019 by

    You had to ask! You had to say the words. Tempt fate? Why the hell not! Let’s put it out into the universe and see what happens. It’s not like the universe likes to sucker punch the foolish. Oh, wait, yes it does! It does it for the giggles. Oh, but okay, go on, give… Read more

  • Just Breathe

  • Huggers! Am I Right?

    December 9, 2019 by

    They stalk their prey with wide eyes and bared teeth. Like sonar, pinging off a target, their voices rise to an octave that could break glass and shatter stone. They come closer. Circling. Cackling. Corralling their victim with glee and guile. The prey frantically searches for an escape. Their heart races. Beads of sweat roll… Read more

  • Can You Hear Me Now

    December 9, 2019 by

    I’m the type of person that gets lost in daydreams. I spend hours staring up at the sky. My happy place is curled up with a decent story or walking alone on a quiet trail. I’m a thoughtful, sensitive, introvert who’s comfortable with the silence. I also talking about geopolitics and the complexities of international… Read more

  • The Plague

    December 5, 2019 by

    It’s not hypochondria if you really do get sick all the time. Isn’t that what all hypochondriacs say? But it’s true! Argue with me all you like but I will not be swayed. My position is firm. My feet are grounded. I am not a hypochondriac!  Yeah, I run out of a room when someone… Read more

  • I Will Have Order

    December 5, 2019 by

    I like it when my day is planned out to the minute. That’s an understatement! I need it? Yep, that’s better. Underline, caps lock, highlight it because I can’t tell you how much I NEED order. I get up at the same time every day, and I don’t set an alarm. My eyes open with… Read more

  • Double Shot

    December 4, 2019 by

    I was three years old when I was diagnosed with chronic renal failure. There was a mistake, an ego trip, and it all led to my life being interesting? Is that the right word? It wasn’t…boring? Wow. Okay. No, not even close, but I do understand the confusion. All you hear about are the exploding… Read more

  • Can You See Me Now

    December 4, 2019 by

    Have you ever been invisible? Looked through. Talked over. Scream and shout but no one hears you. Seriously consider walking through that wall over there because you must be a ghost.  When my kidneys shut my body followed. My bones became brittle and every step created micro-fractures. My heart doubled in size. The fluid around… Read more

    Hey there friends! My name is Keri-lee Griffiths and I’m a recovering human being.  I was diagnosed with a chronic, life-threatening, illness at three years old.
