#insidemymind On September 13, 2016, during a workday like any others, I was tying my shoes to go running my usual 5 kilometres on my lunch break.

Religion(s) and Illness

#insidemymind Hey! Careful there, religion is a delicate topic to address. It is something that (everyone, even those who are not sick) avoid when they do not want to waste energy, much like politics or the Montreal Canadiens and the exchange of Pk Subban.

The glass half-full

Today is a shitty day where I have to be kinder to myself. You know, a day like yesterday’s Habs game, without stamina. It started at 3 am with nausea that progressed to the next logical step (the joys of medication adjustments). I was unable to go back to sleep before 6 am, my alarm woke […]

27 years old

As a child, I had a plan for my life. I would attend university, then find myself a good job, a spouse, buy a house and have my first child at the age of 25. The whole thing, roughly, in that order. There was no other option possible for me. I had goals and I […]
