So many people are so badly mistaken on what programs and options are out there for low income individuals and/or households as it pertains to health care options. I’ve literally lost count of the number of people who “know for a fact” that I and millions like me could have simply qualified for other programs […]

Toddlers Toddlers are by nature selfish. The first thing that a toddler develops is the sense of self. It’s why the “Terrible Twos” are so terrible. They don’t yet comprehend anything outside of themselves; they don’t realize other people (and animals) have feelings just like they do. It’s not their fault, truly, it’s just biology. […]

Things are getting busy around here. First, it’s the weekend after Thanksgiving, so that means the holiday season is officially on. *chuckles* We’re trying to clean up the apartment to get ready for a tree. Problem is that we want to put it in a different area this year – in the “dining room” part […]

:: about ::40 year old Pagan woman who lives in Florida with her guy and two cats, loves Disney, reads fanatically, tinkers in photography and runs her own handcrafted artisan jewelry business.
Inadvertently became the face of Healthcare Reform in America by posting the (in)famous "I am Obamacare" image and sharing the story of her hysterectomy at age 34. Now runs her own small business, PhoenixFire Designs, specalizing in handmade tree of life pendants, full moon tree of life necklaces, family birthstone jewelry, wire wrapped jewelry and more full-time.
Our best friend passed away suddenly March 13, 2010. Five years later, it's still hard. The full story can be read here.
Hysterectomy FundOctober 2013 Update: Happy 2 Year Anniversary!! I'm amazed at how different life is two years later. Though the hardest thing I've ever been through in my life, I've grown so much as a result of having overcome such terrifying and daunting medical issues. In a weird way, I'm better for having experienced these hardships. I'm more sure of myself these days and more confident I can face life's challenges better.
I have tried to turn this medical challenge into an opportunity and using this as a means to push forward with my small jewelry business and as a way to support myself again.
Your continued support is appreciated right now and even links to my shop are appreciated. Thank you to everyone who's helped and spread the word. All of you helped make it possible for me to be here and healthy.
