Chronically Mommy Is Returning Very Soon...

Chronically Mommy is returning very soon. My blog is currently under construction. I am doing some minor renovating and will begin blogging for the New Year, possibly before. I can't wait to start up again. I have missed all of my followers! I love every single one of you! You have helped me to become who I am today! I could never have continued my blog without all of your support. Please be patient, and please continue to support this blog as well as my other blog Now Read My HIPS! Pass this information on to anyone that you know may be interested in knowing...To be continued...

Being Chronically Mommy...

Welcome to the second in my chronic pain blog series. My first was my most well-known about my life struggle, balance, etc. with chronic pain and illness in "I Already Gave My Right Arm To Be Ambidextrous!" It is now titled "Now Read My HIPS!" and the focus has changed a bit to be more about how I am a woman with several joint diseases and conditions with a shoulder replacement and two hip replacements and am belly dancing! Visit Now Read My HIPS! to follow that entertaining, fun journey (alreadygavertarm2bambidextrous.blogspot.com). I also have a Blog Talk Radio Show with the same title about chronic pain and healing.

This blog is a little bit different. It has been focusing on my being a mommy and having a chronic illness. I have been and will continue to focus on health and pain info as well that I once wrote about in Now Read My HIPS! I think it is important to separate this from the rest of my life. It is not easy to have a chronic illness, but adding a child to the mix certainly has its share of trying times as well as beautiful, unforgettable moments.


I am so grateful for our little boy Mick. I can't believe that he is 6 years old as of December of 2016. Time has flown by! He is a dream come true. He has completed my confusing, complicated life. In a very huge way, he has made my life a lot more worth living. Although I have a wonderful husband, we always wanted a family, and I feel like we are now complete and happy. I have something to wake up to, and I have something to live for~Mick! It really is it's own microcosm of my life~Being Chronically Mommy!

Baby Ticker

 Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker
Help, I need somebody,
Help, not just anybody,
Help, you know I need someone, help.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me.

And now my life has changed in oh so many ways,
My independence seems to vanish in the haze.
But every now and then I feel so insecure,
I know that I just need you like I've never done before.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these daya are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Families are Forever

Blog Carnival Accepting Submissions Extended Thru Aug. 10!!

Do you still want to be a part of the Blog Carnival? Have no Fear!!!!!!!! The due date for accepting submissions for the Blog Carnival has been extended through Friday August 10th. This is so exciting because July is JA Awareness Month, and we are continuing the Movement with IAAM into August!!!

The Topic for submission is Why Is JA Different From OA?

This is extrememly important on so many levels. There are people out there who still don't know that arthritis can affect kids. The type of arthritis that affects kids is Juvenile Arthritis which is Autoimmune Arthritis which is different from our Grandma's Arthritis. It is not the same as a little arthritis in your knee!


Please send in your submissions and let us know why they differ! People need to know that when kids are sick from arthritis, it is often more severe and can be more life-threatening, but if they can catch it early, that is the key!!!


You can not be born with Arthritis but you can be born with Autoimmune Arthritis...Tell us about it!!!


Enter your submission in the Blog Carnival due Aug. 10th.  Let's continue JA Awareness. Email submissions to danalm_iaam@yahoo.com.



Let's Keep up the JA Awareness Movement!


Watch my recent video post total hip replacement...I hope it will inspire you. When someone has had a second hip replacement and a shoulder replacement and is in her 30's from AVN due to complications of Autoimmune Arthritis, people will realize that Autoimmune Arthritis is not the same as Osteoarthritis...Differentiate your diagnosis...Tell us why JA differs from OA...


I will give a prize to the blog post that has put the most time, thought and creativity into it...So...start writing!!
