To grind or not to grind?

You might be wondering with all of my treatment appointments what my work situation is. I would wonder if I was a reader too. I currently am focusing 100% of my energies on healing and on taking care of the kids. As you may or may not remember, I had two under two and they […]


All these specialists! What a path it’s been! And it’s still not over. This past weekend I went to see an acupuncturist I’d been to in the past. I’d thought of her before but she is about a thirty minute drive away and I think I’d also avoided going to her because of Covid. She […]

Sleep Consultant

Today we began a new step in our journey. We hired a sleep consultant, Flávia Mônaco, located in Brazil in an attempt to help improve our sleep routine. She is a friend of my Sol’s in Brazil and she and Santi are giving this as a gift. My future sleep thanks them. 🙂 We are […]

Kids Start Preschool

Today both Mathias and Emma started preschool. Mathias had gone last year before the pandemic but we never put him back in since I was pregnant and didn’t want to risk any germs coming home from school. So today they were dropped off to their respective teachers and I will pick them up at noon. […]

Part IV | Psychiatric unit

As the days progressed at the hospital, I started feeling better. Partially because the sleep medications Mirtazapine seemed to be working and also due to the controlled environment where I was fed, put on a routine, taking medications at a certain time and also was without the kids to watch, feed, and take care of.  […]
