"You can't handle the truth!"

So...I decided that actually you could probably handle the truth....

I really do have good intentions of blogging but it's hard to blog when the world is closing in around you and the best you can do it read everyone else's blog and check facebook once and a while.

It's been a hard couple of months. Actually a hard 6 months. Here's the update and then if you don't want to check up on my blog, I understand. Maybe it will make you feel better that although I may appear to handle whatever life throughs at me...I don't always handle it so well. Here's a few answers to your questions...

No, I don't have cancer again - thank heavens!

Yes, I do still have MS and it sucks! There isn't any magic remedy so I am dealing as best I can right now. It's evil!

Yes, I've been in a fight with my anti-depressants. Increasing the dose, developing a lovely allergic reaction and then quitting cold turkey has been truly tough. (Why do they call it cold turkey? Do I seem that overweight, pasty white, and frigid? - apparently, yes!)

Overall, life isn't a bed of roses right now and hasn't been for a while. I have good intentions of posting but as they say...the road to hell is paved with good intentions. We'll see how I do!

Good to hear from you. I had no ides you were having such a rough time. What a great cousin and friend I'm turning out to be. I am so sorry. Please know that you can call anytime. If there is anything I can do, please let me know! Love you!

Hi Tiffany, I'm a friend of Dave's from high school and he pointed me over here to check out your absolutely ADORABLE children! Wow, a seriously cute family!

I also noticed that you make handmade paper products (super chic BTW) and wanted to pass along a website where you can "set up shop" and sell your stuff, it's called etsy. You could make some money of your fanatstic work :)

Thought I'd pass it along! Cute blog. I hope they get your meds all worked out and your feeling on the up and up soon!

Take care, Gretchen

Hey white, pasty, frigid turkey! (wink, wink)I've missed you so!

Getting meds worked out always sucks-I hope it's getting better though. I'm so glad the cancer isn't back though!

Hang in - please let me know what I can do for you (even if you just want me to pick up some Red Mango, drop it on your doorstep, ring the bell and then get the hell out of there...i will do it!)

Love you girl!

Oh Tiffany! We miss you so much! I am glad to hear no on the cancer! But I am so sorry that you are dealing with everything else. You have a huge support system out here though, so please let us all help you when we can. I can take a trip with Celeste and bring you yummies! And I can clean, cook, whatever!
Love ya Tiffany!

hey there girlie! Life does suck sometimes doesn't it! I'm sorry it's been a rough road for you! Today I heard the song "your not alone" on the way out to pick up my Dad. It kind of ticked me off, cause I really did feel alone...but we know we're not. We have family, that sometimes ticks us off more than we can even explain, and the looks of your support have a ton! and more importantly, our Heavenly Father. I know in the depths of the hell we feel...sometimes that phrase can be so...I don't know...just annoying...but when we feel that know who it is that's whispering on our shoulder...It's not our friend. Tiff, you amaze me! When I watch you with your family, you have created such a circle of love and wonderful children....Mckenna cooking can I borrow her! Anyway....I just want to are loved in so many ways by sooooo many people who adore you! Feel a HUGE hug coming from the Blymiller clan! We love ya! Stay strong...(our family motto as the boys served their missions!) :) Stac

I am so sorry to hear that you have been having a hard time. I love ya and look up to so much, even though I am 6 feet tall ;)! Just know if you ever need to talk, you can call me. It is amazing how similar our struggles can be, even though we feel so alone in them. Please know that you are not alone...EVER! I love ya and hope to see you soon. Maybe at a convention get together, since I am not planning to attend this year. I love ya! Jen G.
