Thank you @gracecov for this wonderful gesture of appreciation and #grace toward my husband and his fellow officers during these difficult times. It warms my family’s heart to know that he is prayed over. #leofamily #blackpoliceofficers #migraine #chronicmigraine #patientadvocate #patient #bipoc #activist

It’s always hard to leave my parents, but I must go back to my family and my #sugarbaby Sam. Bye 👋🏾 Florida. Until next time! #doublemasking #gothesocialdistance #chronicmigraine #migraine #travelingwhiledisabled #preboard #wheelchairassistance #patientadvocate #patient #bipoc

Last night at mommy’s 🥺

If #exhaustion were a picture…

On my way to Tampa to help my mom who just had major surgery. I’m exhausted. I’ll be micromanaging Sam’s #diabetes care via phone/text/video chat while still working and making sure mom is comfortable. My emotions are all over the place. #Anxiety was super high as a result of being extremely overwhelmed with everything happening. On a happier note… I love my earrings from @torrid. #chronicmigraine #migraine #preboard #wheelchairassistance #flyingwhiledisabled #depression #whippleprocedure #tampa #patientadvocate #bipoc #

My heart is heavy… My poor Sammy is now on #insulin 2x/day for #type1diabetes and gabapentin for C4-5 intervertebral disc disease 3x/day. He has the Freestyle Libre glucose sensor. Thank goodness there’s an app to take his readings every day. One less expense for me today after spending well over $2K in tests, lab work, and prescriptions. I hate that he’s sick. I hate that he’s getting older. I hate that eventually he’ll develop cataracts and go blind. 2021 can go kick rocks because this shit hurts.

Woke with one of the most excruciating #migraine attacks when I had to take my son to work and my Sam to the internist about his increased blood glucose levels and fur loss. And yes, I’m wearing the same sweatshirt I had on yesterday because, well… migraine and #nausea and it was the closest clothing item I could grab. I want to be in my bed so bad. And this nugget won’t leave my lap so I must comfort him while I try not to puke on his tiny head. #chronicmigraine #momlife #furbaby #dogmama

Not bad for someone who spent almost a full week in bed. Trying to be productive today despite feeling like crumbling every second of the day. Oh, and I showered today! 👏🏾😌 Damn my eyes be giving me all the way up though 😔🥺 #depression #anxiety #overwhelmed #stressed #chronicmigraine #migraine #exhausted #leofamily💙⚫️💙⚫️

Bringing in the new year in style… #happynewyear #byebye2020
