I feel like I start every blog post now with a line like “sorry for not blogging in approximately 75 months,” so this is no exception. It’s been a long time. My bad.

It’s been almost one month since my amaaaazing wedding day, so I guess it’s time to tell you guys all about it. I will try to keep it semi-short because we all know I could write a novel about it. So I’ll write a novella instead. You should grab a cup of coffee because you […] Read more...

*CW: ableism, self-doubt, self-esteem issues, mental health, chronic pain.  Some days I’m funny and I write funny things on my blog. And some days I do the opposite of that, like right now. Some days I feel like a failure. Some days I feel like a fraud. Some days I feel okay. Some days I […] Read more...

There is no right or wrong way to react to being diagnosed with a disease. Everyone lives differently and everyone grieves differently. When I was diagnosed with a disease I held onto that diagnosis like it was a life vest and I was thrown overboard into an unforgiving ocean because that is honestly what it […] Read more...

I’m Ardra and I write Tripping on Air, a lippy blog about my life with multiple sclerosis (MS). People tell me it’s funny and I believe them because I’m an egomaniac. Lisa asked me to write a guest post about why I write with humour, about something so effing awful. Lisa is lazy or she […] Read more...
