I barely slept last night; I was so excited that I was finally going to reunite with my best friend/my soulmate sister. It had been over ten years that we were last together. Her hugs were so big and loving, just as I remembered. We played quick rounds of "so this was my past decade", shared laughs & tears, and went for lunch together. She and my partner were my first family, because of these two amazing people, I am the woman I am today. We promised to be together again soon, no later than one year without a visit. On the rest of our adventure that day, after we said our long goodbyes, we forgot to drive south to our two other destinations... I guess we'll have to do a second part to this tour to make up those towns/cities and get another visit with Kate.
"I have Fibromyalgia - thank you for being considerate," diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2018, I am still struggling to understand my illness and learn to cope with my pain.
In spring 2022, I was diagnosed with chronic depression, c-PTSD and Borderline Personality Disorder. Everyday was yesterday in my mind & in the flashbacks I was routinely suffering through. Three months after my second suicide attempt, I moved to a new community to begin my healing journey.
is an homage to my favorite childhood book series, Martine. I love the symbolism of the hot air balloon that I, Mallory, am navigating life with chronic illness while on a healing journey.
