Costochondritis- Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you amazing mom's out there. I pray you feel as loved as you are. I LOVED getting to be with my mom today. She ROCKS! Here's a pic of my grandmother, hubby, and 2 of my nieces and nephews. So precious.

I'm not writing a ton these days, but I think about you all so often! I feel like I'm in an awkward place in my little Costochondritis blog, love you bloggy! I want those seeking healing, both now and in the future, to be able to come here and read posts all about Costo, not all about my Celiac journey. Don't get me wrong, I'm SO thankful to know why I'm having this pain, but I also know that my journey isn't everyone esle's. So I feel like maybe this isn't the place to chatty chat chat about my Celiac. I want it to stay focused on Costo. Yet I don't want to close out the blog until my Costo. pain is completely gone. I want to finish what I started. Can we say, OCD?

As for me, I'm seeing a dietitian who deals with Celiac later this week. Looking forward to this. Going to have tons of vitamin/mineral levels tested, and then will be meeting with him to get everything balanced out. Double yay for that. Other than that, I'm rocking out a very minimal diet and taking one day at a time, but hey, whatever it takes to feel better is on the menu for me. Working really hard to figure this whole puzzle out. I want to shout from the roof tops when I buy my ticket back to NYC.

Blessings to all of you mothers who are living with chronic illnesses. My heart goes out to you, you are all beautiful heroes to me.



  1. I get the OCD thing. I've been having a blogging crisis myself. The place I was in when I started is very different to where I am now. I don't want to be doom and gloom and I don't want to be just the chick with a chronic illness. I look at many other health blogs and they are full of heartfelt epiphanies and a life focused on illness. I feel like I've missed the information session on how my blog should be written. It's not like my heath doesn't rule my life cause it pretty much does, but I think I'm at the point of needing a trial separation, at least mentally. Should I stick with it just being about Bob and create another blog for my other stuff or should I just put it all on one and look kinda schizophrenic? My last few posts have nothing to do with being ill so if someone rocked up to say hi they'd wonder whether they had gone to the wrong blog. As you can tell from my ramblings I'm a little confused by where I am in the blogging realm. Maybe I need some blogging therapy.

    Well enough about me. I hope the dietician can steer you in the right direction foodwise and give you even more relief. Don't forget you have to show me Broadway one day, from behind the scenes of course because you'll be staring. :)

    I think whatever you write it will be wonderful as you always put your true heart into it. Your writing and vlogs are genuine, warm and welcoming. You'll find your path, I have no doubt.

  2. Rusty, said it WAY better than I ever could! Everything you said is exactly how I feel. Like you, I am in a different place as well...and do you keep writing and keep with the original topic? Or write about the other things on your mind and be all bi-polar blog chick? Or start a new blog? All great questions! Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. I need blogging therapy too!!!!!!!!!!!! lol.

    Thank you so much for all your support! And yes, when I hit will be given front row tickets. =) For shizzle and always!

    Many hugs,

  3. One person's opinion...instead of a new blog: You state this is where the journey has taken me now......and because costo and all it's symptoms are still alive and well you state how you are doing in that area too as is needed for clarification. This advise would be for Rusty also, just substitute costo for bob.

  4. Dearest Mychelle,

    Thank you for your honest opinion about my little blog- I do so appreciate it! =) Very kind to offer your view on the topic.

    As per your results. WOW! I so feel for you, everything you have numbered, I'm avoiding as well. I'm sure it was tough and overwhelming to get all of this information! I will for sure keep you in my prayers tonight as you are having to change your whole diet and life style. You have my support anytime you need it.

    I know how tough and life changing it is! But at the same time, SOOOOO worth it if you will start to feel better. Major stars to you for digging, digging, digging...I know you are so ready to feel good. Please keep me posted on it?

    Thank you SO much for sharing your results with me, I was so curious!!
    Many hugs,

  5. Natural Herbs for Costochondritis may help reduce your costochondritis-related pain and inflammation. Talk about the efficacy and safety of herbs with your doctor before using these substances.

  6. It was during my research on HIV/Herpes that I stumbled upon the Hiv/Herpes information; information which is quite easy to find when doing a search for STD on google. I was into conspiracy at the time thought of HIV/Herpes Cured' being a conspiracy was something Ignorance though,I found pretty interesting about herbal medicine. I asked questions about the Herbal cure's on official HIV/Herpes websites and I was banned for doing so by moderators who told me that I was parroting Hiv/Herpes propaganda. This reinforced my belief that there is a cure for Hiv/Herpes Then i found a lady from germany name Achima Abelard Dr Itua Cure her Hiv so I send him a mail about my situation then talk more about it and send me his herbal medicine I drank for two weeks.And today I'm Cured no Hiv/Herpes in my life,I searched for Hiv/Herpes groups to attempt to make contact with people in order to learn more about Hiv/Herpes Herbal Cure's I believed at this time that you with the same disease this information is helpful to you and I wanted to do the best I could to spread this information in the hopes of helping other people.That Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Cancer,Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Syndrome Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.Fatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic diseases.Hiv_ Aids,Herpes,Inflammatory bowel disease ,Copd,Diabetes,Hepatitis,I read about him online how he cure Tasha and Tara,Conley,Mckinney and many more suffrin from all kind of disease so i contacted him . He's a herbal doctor with a unique heart of God, Contact Phone or whatsapp..+2348149277967.

  7. First and foremost, yay! If you are sick person? You're not in the dark anymore, and that's half the battle. Secondly, don't get discouraged. Although it might be hard to not beat yourself up over the ups and downs (it took going through an entire category of medications, endless rounds of physical therapy, multiple casts, different specialists, and taking a drug every day to stay alive. That wasn't for me I must say, I suffered HIV/Herpes since 2003 when I was raped, for me to find something to believe in that I will be save someday was tough to say of things) and the outbreak remind me on how I got the disease. After I have a chance to visit my African friend in Miami then he told me about Dr Itua who reside in west Africa(Nigeria)I know the country has a lot of sorts of things out there but i just have to trust him and I proceed with the treatment, happily I take it for two weeks as Dr Itua instructed me to so after two weeks I went for test then I found out I was cured, The herbal medicine has no side effect and I'm healthy today no more pills or outbreak I'm getting my life back now, gradually. Contact Dr Itua if you are suffering from the below diseases.....HIV/Aids, Herpes, Genital Or Oral disease, Wart, Shingles and Blisters, Cold Sore, Lupus, Chronic Lyme Disease, Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson, Hepatitis A/B. Diabetes, Cancer. Info Or Whatsapp Number...+2348149277967. ...

  8. It is no secret that I have a very deep and personal relationship with God. I have pushed and resisted that relationship this past year through all the bullshit I have had to go through living with Herpes but once again, God is bigger than my stubbornness and broke through that outbreak cold sore and all I had Genital Herpes. For me personally, hearing over and over how I am not good enough has really invaded my mind in the worst way possible. I completely shut down and I was just waking up like is this how life going to end this temporary herpes outbreak “fuck everybody with herpes if you know what I mean” but let's be honest here...It is a cowardly to say no to herbal medicine. It is fear based. And it is dishonest to what my heart wants. Don't build a wall around yourself because you are afraid of herbals made or taking a bold step especially when it's come to health issues and getting cure. So many young men/ women tell me over and over that Dr Itua is going to scam me but I give him a try to today I feel like no one will ever convince me about herbal medicine I accept Dr Itua herbal medicine because it's cure my herpes just two weeks of drinking it and i have been living for a year and months now I experience outbreak no more, You can contact him if you need his herbal medicine for any such diseases like,HIV,Epilepsy Infertility, Herpes, Hepatitis, Schizophrenia,Cancer,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic,Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic, Love Spell,. then what's app.+2348149277967.... My advice to any sick men/women out there is simple... Be Always an open book. Be gut wrenching honest about yourself, your situation, and what you are all about. Don't hold anything back. Holding back will get you nowhere...maybe a one way ticket to lonelyville and that is NOT somewhere you want to be. So my final truth...and I'm just starting to grasp this one..
