Time for another Italian lesson of the day! Did you know that “Della Nonna” means “from grandmother”? Our Della Nonna dish will remind you of your grandmother’s famous cooking, featuring prociutto, arugula, and house made ricotta.
the last few days have been far from easy 😩 as some of you know i have battled OCD revolving the fear of hurting myself or others. a big anxiety producer is driving 🚘 well, samara (my partner) was in a car accident that may have totaled her car. it wasn’t her fault. it is life. things happen. but, oh my god, it’s been a lot of processing 🧠 i could have lost her in an instant. looking out at her car on the street outside our apartment leaves me in awe. sitting there, busted, but i’m thankful. she isn’t one to talk about these things publicly. but, it’s left both of us shaken😞 i’m scared of how fast things can change. how our whole world could have been so, so much worse. yet, i’m so incredibly thankful she made it out alive with minor injuries ❤️ it reminds me to hold the people and things i love closer. and with all these, it heightened my PTSD. the nightmares have returned. the dissociation. the feeling of complete utter numbness. the concept of time⏳flashbacks. pain. tears. my psychiatrist says the sleeping bear has awakened 🐾 and, he is angry. PTSD can lie dormant. but, if something pokes it, it will erupt like a volcano 🌋 with it comes the OCD. the perpetual tense grip on the wheels of my car. heart pounding 💓 visions of my death. one slip and...gone. and, the fibro flares 💥 due to the stress. man, i’m tired. we’re tired 💤 be gentle with the people around you. remember to be considerate. understanding. we all are fighting something others can’t see from the naked eye 👁 i choose to hold on to hope. that there will be a solution. that there will be healing for you, for me, for this world 🌏 i am in the process of finding a “transitional object”. a transitional object is something you hold onto always. something that has weight to it and will ground you in times of stress. if you are going through a dissociating time these are very handy and i highly recommend them. hold the ones around you closer today 💕 things can change in an instant. • • • #fibromyalgia#ptsd#ocd#fibrowarrior#portlandoregon#bpd#chronicillness#chronicpain#invisibleillness#fibro#pacificnorthwest#borderline#traveloregon#spoonielife#migraine#spoonie#mentalillness

Happy Wednesday! Did you catch my Portland travel diary on my blog? We made it to Hug Point but couldn’t get to the ‘other side’ because of high tide, but regardless I loved my time there (not so much of the drive this time of the year!) wearing something new something old, more on that on this Friday’s blog post. #styleandsenses#traveldiary#hugpoint

In Bandon, the chamber got us set up for a hosted dinner at one of the finest restaurants on the Oregon Coast. Alloro Wine Bar $ Restaurant is located right in Old Town and has amazing food. We slipped back to the kitchen to talk with the co-owner who is also the amazing chef. 🌲Southern Oregon Coast🌊

Okay Oregonians...you know the Columbia River Gorge is awesome, but do you know how wonderful The Dalles is?

You can learn all about the project, this Historic significance of The Dalles, and how it will become a mural by following @alltogetherthedalles and check out the website (link in bio). .
