DIY Altered Bathing Suits Tutorials from Plan B Anna Evers here. From basic bathing suits to a trikini (using a key ring) and an asymmetrical woven ladder suit. For a tutorial on how to change a bra to a bikini top and add bra cups to swimwear go here. But seriously, to prevent bathing suit malfunctions, I’d use a Serger. Are you brave enough to perform surgery on a bathing suit (you can go over to buzzfeed to see what other people thought)?
DIY Wire Bead Petals Necklace Tutorial from LYSM Design here. This is a really cheap and easy DIY from LYSM Design. The bottom photo is from her post here. There is a translator on the right hand side.

I was diagnosed with fibro about six months ago by a doctor that pretty muchb wanted nothing whatsoever to do with men
After taking in my first impression, he just knew that I was there looking for drugs…nArcotics… but honestly at the time, I didn’t know what I was there for. My only intention was to be a ble to live my life with some semblance of normalcy. He prescribed me Ambien to help me sleep, and told me to lose weight, and my fibromyalgia would be. CURED. CURED. Get it?
Flash forward to two other doctors tht have the same opinion and guess what, work in the same practice. At this point I am treated like a teenage drama queen with a drug. Addiction.. even though I don’t drink,smoke, or partake of any illicit substances. Once more, I am brushed off completely and told to manage with my 50mg tramadol, 40mg celexa, and ambien.
Guess what? The tramadol dulls the pain since I’ve been on th for around threeish years. The celexa no longer balances my anxiety and often makes being dead look like a shining opportunity. The ambien??? Hypes me up and then I have no idea why there are cupcakes on the entertainment stand, and an Xbox controller in the freezer? FAiIl
I have an apppt at a new wellness center on weds. I’m praying as well as having panic attacks that they take me seriously.
Happy Fibromyalgia Awareness day! (for real this time!)
It was my birthday. How. Fitting.
I have the previous ones queued, but I had to post this one now.
So fun fact: because of the amount of NSAIDs I’ve been taking (since my evil clinic took my stronger pain meds away) and some family history, my kidneys are trying to exit stage left. I’ve hit about stage 3 failure (according to my symptoms and my hours of research. I have yet to visit the doctor and get confirmed and treated (doing that tomorrow, I’ll keep y’all posted!)) and this month my period just up and decided to GTFO (after a decade of begging) and it made me think of this. Honestly, I think I would be about 5-10% less annoyed at my Fibro if it got rid of my monthly hell weeks.
