  • Thank you! I think I must be confusing a lot of people lol, but it’s my sister that passed away. She would be my little bugs’ aunt and I know that she’s looking after them. Her death took a huge toll on me mentally and physically. Still to this day, to the point I almost died myself in October from a horrible asthma attack. I can never put to…read more

    It was a shocker for me when I even figured out that a word like that existed. It helped me figured out myself, but that was before the death of my sister. I will follow you or you can follow me, mine is private, but I will follow you back. It’s @artisan_meng

    Yes, that would be lovely. And we can do social media too. I do have insta, I just know they have a word count and I don’t feel like keep cutting it to see where I stopped. But it is a tough road and even though I knew how to write with my grandmothers and sister, I’ve never had this impact. And words fail me. I suffer from alexithymia. It happens…read more

    It’s the least I can do. I don’t ever feel like I’m doing enough or that I can actually put together just what she meant and who she was to me. Yeah, I really do.

    Purple is the color ribbon for chronic diseases. My sister was a victim of Lupus. A disease where your body attacks tissue and their is no cure or no real understanding of just why it happens. I affect Black Women the most and it did with my sister at 21. Right when she lost her first baby a day after he was born, she had to find out she had a…read more

      I am so very sorry to read about the loss of your dear sister. Sometimes life can be so unfair. You are stronger then you think. I know you will always keep your sister’s memory in your heart. She will give you strength.
