“I promise you, having a chronic illness isn’t the end of the world…But, please, believe, there are some days where it feels like it is!” -The Behcet’s Beauty


I need to listen to my body. I need to refill these prescriptions. I need to follow up with the gi Dr *eye roll*. I haven’t been writing as much because I’ve been occupied with other projects. I had new student Orientation to register for classes, I been working with the ASCP to have my…


Sorry for my absence, but I’ve been attempting to live life. I have great news, I got accepted into my doctoral program and start next month. (Ayeeee, Dr. Hudgins in the House!) So, that, in itself, is awesome! This business on the other hand, nah. I am not a business owner. This isn’t my forte,…

Bull. Shit.

Excuse me, but why am I paying for insurance again for you to only pay less than 8% of the bill? GTFOH!

Doctor Blues

How much pain can you tolerate before you give in and make an appointment for the doctor? Listen, I LOATHE my GI care takers. Nothing personal, I’m sure they’re great human beings, However, in my case… I feel like they don’t take my symptoms seriously. There’s been an ongoing battle with them and my other…

Wakanda, Forever!

I know I’ve been missing in action these past few weeks. I’ve been trying to juggle Noire, returning back to work, medical expenses and a new edition to the family (not mine! My teenage brother). Needless to say, it’s a lot. And not to mention my typical flares, aches and pains. I had another blood…

In My Feelings

I have been waiting weeks for this weekend. Not for the super bowl, I could care less. But to hang out with my friends and be social. And, of course, I can barely move. I even slept all day and did minimal activity so I could get out today. I’m really over this sick shit….

Say Cheese!

I make this look good! 😜 #ButYouDontLookSick #TheBehçetsBeauty #spoonielife #SELFCare #StayInspired #BlackExcellence #blackgirlmagic

Back to Regularly Scheduled Program

First day back to work since November. It wasn’t too bad. I only been released to do 4 hours a day. It was great to see all of my coworkers. They were ecstatic to see me. Needless, to say, I’m exhausted. There’s no way in the world I could go back full-time. And, for once,…


I hate going to doctor appointments alone. I hate holding back tears trying to look composed, even more. I need a me… –The Behçets Beauty

There’s No Disability in the Digital World

I absolutely love how social media allows us #spoonies to connect with each other, further our education, launch businesses and advocate for causes at our fingertips. The only limitation is the one you out on yourself. #ButYouDontLookSick #TheBehçetsBeauty #StayInspired

You ever just look at yourself in the mirror and be like damn, this shit is really happening to me? This is my life. This is my reality. I just had this happen.

Tap Out!

I just woke up feeling like I had full blown influenza. Stiff neck, joints, every muscle in my body aching. Throbbing. A shower is looking farfetched today. Luckily, most of the things I had tasked for today can be done from my phone and laptop, but this is really worrying me. I didn’t do anything…
