If you follow my blog, you already know about my recent medical adventures. In an attempt to deal with my severe insomnia, I tried a new medication and was severely allergic to it, so I had to go on... Prednisone! If you've heard my prednisone song ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYlgtloOztU&feature=share&list=UURC9gl53K4UW7qQVP5bAPjw ),you know I'm not a fan, to say the least. But sometimes it's a necessary evil. Even a life saver.

In chapter one, there's a day-by-day diary and some awesome pictures of my gnarly rash.

Chapter two, the aftermath, has some before-and-after pictures of my face. This is your face. This is your face on prednisone. I kind of can't believe I posted that awful picture of myself. Go look now before I have regrets and remove it. http://lupusandhumor.blogspot.com/2013/02/prednisone-vs-killer-rash-part-2.html

The Great Bowel Movement
So there's this website called "The Great Bowel Movement" (not kidding- it's for IBS and Crohn's- awesome, right?). A writer there just wrote a really nice review of my book {excerpt: "To anyone looking to find a companion, a laugh, and some things you may never have thought about when it comes to being your own best advocate, I would without a doubt recommend “How Can You NOT Laugh at a Time Like This”."} http://thegreatbowelmovement.org/book-review-how-can-you-not-laugh-at-a-time-like-this/

In other news, I've been taking a little time off of doing live shows and focusing more on writing songs. I've written songs about blowing my nose, a tribute to my husband's ex-girlfriends, and about being totally average. I have a bunch of other ideas in the hopper, but one never knows which ones will actually turn out decent. It's kind of like cooking. Or so I hear. I don't really cook. I burn stuff then make a salad.
