Blogging from A to Z April 2018

So, to be cliché, I am very thankful that God woke me up this morning sober and clean. I am thankful for my husband Cruz and our seven four-legged babies Missy, Crissy, Little Bitty, Zailey, Sadie, Stitchy and Tippy. I am thankful for my father and stepmother and for Cruz’s mother. I am thankful for my sisters Lori and Cindy, their husbands Nicky and Doug; my nieces and their partners Rachel and Bryan, Britney, and Cassie and Ricky, Ashley and David, Tasha and Bubba and of course my great nieces and nephews Madi, Skyler, Hailey, Sophia, Bryson, Kyle and Colton, Nathen and Kaden.

But to be un-cliché, I am thankful that I have THRIVING not just SURVIVING with HIV/AIDS for over 21 years. I am thankful that I am able to be rigorously honest about my alcoholism and addiction to cocaine of which I am a daily work in progress in recovery. I am thankful that I am clinically diagnosed with depression and bipolar affectation disorder. I am also thankful that as I get younger and prettier (BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA) that my body is falling apart and that other surgeries could be in my future. Why am I thankful for all of this? Because it gives me a voice and plenty of writing material.

That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage” today, thanks for stopping by!!
