Ask Me Anything

I've been busy with work, Mr. Bee is busy taking the Bar exam, and between our lives and being sick and having mush brain I haven't had much to write about! So, I've had to result to the anonymous joy of Formspring for inspiration. Go ahead, ask me anything.

What is one goal you want to complete more than anything? by luvspinkpearls

The one goal I'd most like to accomplish is to become a mother. My major dream goal would be to open an animal rescue.

When are you going to have kids?

We were originally going to start trying next month. With my health issues, we have to push it back until I'm well, which is hopefully in the not-too distant future, but is completely up in the air right now. I want to have kids so badly so I've been really depressed about this setback. (PS - my questions are depressing..sorry!)

Special talent?

I can put both of my legs behind my head and walk on my hands. I can also bark like a dog, and identify any song within the first second of hearing it. I wish I had a useful talent!

Have you and your husband become friends with other law students and their spouses?

We do have a lot of attorney friends. Surprisingly, most of our law friends are unmarried (most likely because they wanted to wait until after the Bar exam). I haven't met many other girls whose husbands are attorneys, so it was a disappointment when I couldn't launch my "Law School Widow" club, complete with shirts and bumper stickers

why do you have to wear glasses?

Short answer: I have horrible vision. Long answer: I've worn glasses since I was 7 years old - I have horrible vision. As soon as I started middle school I started wearing contacts and fell in love. Unfortunately, contacts and me don't really like each other. I had tons of infections and ulcers caused from chronic dry eye and whatever else that caused scarring, and now I can't wear contacts without being in extreme pain. Which is sad because I really feel unattractive with glasses, but I've been wearing them full-time for about 3 years now so I'm getting used to it, and it gives me an excuse to grow my glasses collection!

What's one thing you own that you should probably throw away, but never will?

All of my notes and letters from high school. I have old photos, cards, and notebooks with my friends that I just can't toss. I have no plans on sitting around and reading everything, but I'm just scared I'll regret it if I actually get rid of them, so they're hoarded away at my parent's house.

why haven't you answered any questions?

I've been sick, my brain is mush, my husband has been studying for the bar and things have been crazy around here! Also, I just forgot this was even here.  

how do i wear heels without wanting to get a foot replacement by the end of the day?

I've learned to almost always wear platform heels so that my feet aren't in such an awkward position. It's basically like standing on a platform. Jessica Simpson shoes have lots of platform options.

why are you always in the hospital?

I have POTS Syndrome (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome), which is basically a fancy term for my blood pressure dropping dramatically and heart rate rising when I'm standing. This tires me out really easily, and I've been basically homebound since January. I also get dehydrated really easily, so I have to go in for IV fluids every once in a while.


  1. i totally still have all my notes from HS too!!!

  2. I just found out that I have chronic dry eyes. I had gotten to the point where my contacts irritated me if I wore them for more than an hour and I thought I was going to get Lasik, then my doctor told me my eyes are too dry. I'm currently on prescription eye drops called Restasis. They are supposed to help my eyes produce more tears then I may be able to wear contacts again or maybe even get Lasik. You may want to ask your eye doctor about these!

    PS I feel unattractive wearing glasses full time too. I totally feel your pain and it honestly just helped me to learn that I'm not the only one with this problem!

    Sending my luck to your hubby!!!!!

  3. I understand the always in the hospital, and I'm pretty much housebound most of the time too.

    It's a lonely life, but you manage to make it look exciting on this beautiful website.

    Come visit me at It's Time To Get Over How Fragile You Are sometime!


  4. I will keep you in my prayers! I dread IVs so bad regardless how many times I have had them. When it's the right time health wise and God's timing I know He will provide you with a baby! Hope you have a good weekend!:)
